Cacti

Some update on my small cacti “garden”. The beautiful big white one is a new addition, a gift that left in our urban garden by an acquaintance from our neighborhood. Also, I received from my school another one that is not in such a good shape, but maybe it will get better with more light this summer. I’m kind of worried for the biggest cactus I have, that seems to be very dry, but again, I moved the pot closer to the window and I hope the light from the summer will make it better. I’ll also look for some soil enhancer for it. My vintage flower stand, that was my grandmother’s needs some repainting, but I don’t think this will happen very soon. But I don’t mind the shabby look, it goes well with all the different pots and cacti.

Olympus IS2000

I received this nineties macro camera as a gift in October. I immediately put a film in it (a fresh Fuji 200), but I shot the last frame only a few days ago. So these photos were taken in the last 3 months. I expected sharper results from this quality camera (I think it used to be  expensive, at least my uncle, who gave it to me, remembers that he splurged on it). I’m not sure how often I’ll use this camera, as it is quite heavy to carry around, but definitely I’ll give it one more try, maybe in summer when the light is better.

Instax photos in the forest

I haven’t use my Instax 100 camera in a very long time. The film is so expensive and I kept postponing using the films I still have, saving them for some special occasions. But I have realized these days that I actually miss using instax film and anyway the really expired film that I have (a very lucky flea market find from a couple of years ago) might get non-usable if I keep saving it. I took these photos in the forest and I like how they turned out, even if the film expired in 2010, I think.
