Go well go-Shell

Go well go-Shell

A box of slides.
Yesterdays memories cast aside all but forgotten, rescued just in time from the heat and dust of an Australian tin shed.
Its the year of the megapixel, but wait film is making a comeback.
Did it ever go away Pixel peepers?

Memory rewind.

Blue Skies, an Australia summer, stifled heat. Load the car.
Hot vinyl seats burn the skin, sit on a towel.
Cricket on the radio, England 432 for 1 !!
In your dreams.

Grab the Pentax, a roll of Kodachrome.
A Sunday afternoon drive to escape the rat race of Sydney.
Afternoon tea and fill er up please.

Go well go-Shell.

Sydney Harbour, the QEII and a hint of Lomo

Sydney Harbour, the QE2 and a hint of Lomo

I can’t really afford one of those Lomo camera’s I’m just a poor Nikon D200 owner.

So the next best thing is to scan some old Kodachrome slides taken on my Pentax SFX.
1986 The SFX had everything, auto focus zoom lens, a built in flash and motorwind. I even traded in my Canon A1 in part exchange!
Next import the slides into Lightroom 2 and apply a nice little Lomo Velva preset.

So the first image in the Lomo set of 8ight is Sydney Harbour taken around 1991.
