Canon Ae-1: Before a long day of shopping

April 18 is my birthday. April 18th, 2011 was the day I turned 21. Quite an important step, right? You would think that being a photomaniac I should have collected tons of pictures on my 21st birthday. I actually didn't.

Well, I had taken some pics, nothing special. But some were damaged and some were deemed not worth the printing by my weird photolab. It's a fast photo lab, the supermarket kind. I guess you can say it's my fault for keep getting my rolls developed there, even though they never print my most interesting and "experimental" [i.e. messed up] pictures 'cause they think they're just accidents- can't they see those are happy accidents? Can't they just print the whole batch of 36 pictures for the sake of it? They get paid per prints... oh my.

Anyway, this is all I can show you of Day 4 of my last trip to London, stuff on our bed before leaving for a  whole day of genuine shopping... in Oxford Street! We bought so many things that once we got back to our hotelroom M and I decided to put all of our new stuff on the bed and it was completely covered in our clothes and my bunny ears. Yes, I said bunny ears.

Last but not least, I'd love to thank everyone who likes and shares my pictures on tumblr [with proper credits!], as I've recently experienced a consistent rise in my views on flickr, and I'm always excited to see more and more people marking my photos as favorites.

Thank you all for your support, it really means a lot to me.

  1. looove that photo. <3 this makes me lust after the canon ae-1! xxx

  2. I just got back from London, and shopping at Oxford Circus! Isn't it amazing?

    Oh my gosh I know what you mean about the photolabs not printing the "accidents". Who are they to determine if those photos aren't worth having! If I'm paying for 24 prints I want 24, not 20! All that excitement to get your film back and they take some away from you- nooo!

    Thanks for following me :)

  3. Thanks Tasha, as good as you are at taking pictures, I'm sure you would blow us all away with a Canon Ae-1! :)

  4. Thank you, Estelle, for following me back!

    Guys at the photolabs = arrogant ignorants *

    [Well, not many, but most of them are indeed]

  5. I wish I could travel to London. It looks amazing. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a wonderful comment. You should definitely think of cutting some holes into old tshirts. Would love to see the outcome!

    Also thanks for following!!
