Polaroid ee100 Special Plus Bonus Cat

So I finally got around to getting some film for this camera! I seem to have started a camera collection without meaning to - Everyone keeps giving me old cameras that have been locked away and forgotten!

This is my newest addition given to me by my grandpa. My first shot didn't come out at all but after some googling I realised I had it on some thing for long exposures ( I'm a complete novice in regard to cameras so no camera speak here!). Second and third shot, which are the first photos here, were blurry and thats because I didn't have the bellows thingy fully brought forward. The next photo came out great but then the one of Percy didn't so much. Anyway I'm having fun and just wanted to share as this is my first ever venture with polaroid! Even though it cost heaps for film I definately recommend this camera. Lots of fun when you are battling a nasty cold!

That's all folks!

Athena Nochua @ Espionage

"CURVY in conjunction with Espionage Gallery are proud to present ‘Athena Nochua’, an exciting group exhibition celebrating the talents of female artists from Australia and around the globe.

‘Athena Nochua’ will feature work from a selection of handpicked artists many of whom have graced a page or two of CURVY from its early beginnings in 2003. What started as an annual book and exhibition series in Sydney has now grown to become quite a hit internationally. Included in the line-up of the 24 artists showing their works as part of Athena Nochua is well known French artist Fafi, a CURVY favourite.

This is the first time that CURVY is coming to Adelaide, so we hope you’ll join us at Espionage Gallery on Thursday the 13 June, to celebrate the work of these talented female artists. "
