this is the cafe on the 2nd level of the bookstore. this is actually packed for it. but there's always empty seats. it feels like a ghost town when i have my camera in my hand walking through there. i'm not thinking about anything except what's upstairs. what's the light like...

big ups to nick blair, this was my first roll of medium format slide film i ever shot. i saw a photo he took of bondi, our home, that floored me. the colour, texture. so i loaded up, and went to my favourite place.

and massive ups for our penny. what can i say that i haven't already said before.
max dupain, annie leibovitz, penny nannini...

diana+. 120 slide. and that.
