Medieval dragons are not out of place in the imagination of children. The back side of the dragon on the roof of the Providence Children's Museum. I like how the blues stayed blue, the red was oversaturated, and the contrast was increased in this XPRO. The Diana created a soft light leak on the top of the tail and some slight vignetting.

Created using my girlfriend's Diana camera with Fuji Velvia 100F slide film cross processed with C-41. Photo scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation used!

    "What did this photo inspire in you?" Hmmm, that the Diana can take good photo's minus the light leaks! I like the border you put on these too.

    I've not heard of Diana. I guess I'll google it to see what I can find. Great shot.

    What a weird impression this one makes, almost seems like the "one of these things..." was created just for it.
    Ahh... the Velvia. Lovely, especially through the Diana. Need to find one some day...

    UPDATE: you can purchase a newly re-released Diana camera at . It's a Diana+ and it's not quite as cool as the original (which you can still find on eBay), but I ordered one and you should order one too!
