coffs harbour. new south wales. australia. earth.

This dot on our planet features a absolute contrast of natural Australian ecosystems. But it was the blue gum forests and the sub-tropical rainforests that had me walking around with my mouth wide open catching flies, and ripping off leeches.

And it was this rainforest that had me returning with a lower ISO film packed away neatly in my new camera. By new I mean old. Luck chanced upon me and I just managed to pick up a sweet little Minolta hi-matic 7s. an old Rangefinder manf' in 1966. I cant put this thing down. I need counselling. It’s not the most comfortable thing to sleep with but that fault is easily overlooked.
it’s in perfect nik, and it only cost me 30 bones.

Boo-yah.
