Earlier this year, I set out to do a 365 photo project on my photography blog, but school work started piling up so I had little time to upload pictures I had taken. Then things got a little too hectic when they started piling up on top of the school work I had to do, so I abandoned the project altogether.
I hardly ever post on there now, except for a couple of photo sets here and there, which I end up reblogging here anyway. So, what I want to try now is have a weekly feature here on Bloggins to showcase some of my film photography. Let’s call it Photoset Friday!

Updated WANTED List
Happy Thursday! Hope everyone is having a great week. It’s been a slow one for me and I could really use some retail therapy. But instead of spending money, I’ll just look at pictures of stuff I want. Like the ones above.
one. Chooka rain boots. I feel like I always have boots on my mind since I never really owned a pair of boots that were both stylish and practical. I think the safest bet would be to buy these boots for the upcoming Chicago winter since they are weather proof and wallet-friendly.
two. The Impossible Project just released this Special Edition Color Film for 600 cameras. Each pack of film has 8 photos with different color frames to match the distinctive colors of the film. The last time had this was about a year ago and I’ve been waiting for more ever since!
three. Lomography Sprocket Rocket Superpop edition in teal. I’ve been wanting this ever since Lomography first rolled these out in fun, bright colors but after going to the Lomography Store Chicago I’ve been wanting it even more.
four. These stackable bangles. So simple, yet so stylish.
five. Once again ugmonk has released another run of the Ampersand crew neck. These are so popular that they always sell out before I get the chance to grab. Now’s my chance!
six. The Koostik Amplifier, the powerless iPhone dock that can amplify your tunes 2-4 time louder than with out it. You can put it or bring it anywhere since you wouldnt be shacked to the wall with a power cord. Also, it’d look awesome in my room.
It’s finally beginning to look a lot like autumn here in Chicago, now that the leaves have finally started changing! It’s crazy to think it’s already November, but it still feels like September and like summer is barely ending. Sigh.
Enjoy these photos I picked from my Instagram feed that are helping me get in the fall state of mind

Just a couple of friends, a kickball, and a camera
Yashica Lynx-5000 with Lomography Lady Grey 35mm film (ISO100)
New rolls of film are being developed as we speak!
…at least I hope so.
Just last week I dropped off some Lomography B&W rolls (Earl Grey and Lady Grey) at Central Camera, and since I have not ventured into the realm of developing my own rolls of film, I have to wait until next week to pick up the developed negatives. Also, I’m planning on dropping off a roll of Lomo Tungsten 64 tomorrow afternoon, so new photos should be up soon.
Oh the suspense!
I really can’t stand the suspense of waiting to see how a roll came out, but then again I think that’s one of the funnest parts of film photography. In the meantime, I decided to peruse the Lomography gallery and in doing so, I found some awesome lomographs using the Tungsten, Earl Grey, and Lady Grey films mentioned above and I decided to share some.
