Darkest (Room) Desires Revisited

Ever since, well, a long time, I have wanted to enlarge and develop my own prints… the old fashioned way, in a darkroom, using traditional techniques, chemicals, enlargers, etc etc A couple of years ago (damn, was it a couple of years ago already?) my friend Paul and a few other friends got together and […]

Recording Obsolescence

Do you have obsolescent or semi-obsolescent stuff around? I bet you do. Here I was just having a bit of fun visually recording some audio recording of some obsolescent or semi-obsolescent technology for’s latest community recording project ‘Exploring Obsolescence’ No micro-cassettes were harmed in the making of this video, but I’m afraid some circuitry […]


Well I hope you all had fun on pinhole day. I’ve been so distracted with other ‘stuff’ & busy with work & family, I haven’t actually managed to scan or upload the Polaroid pinholes I took, so will update them later. I did, however, indulge in my other passion one dark and stormy night last […]


Unsensored [Coda] & Upcoming Events

It’s been a busy year and it’s not over yet. Coming up in September is something I’ve been looking forward to for oh, 2 years now, since the last one! The Ballarat International Foto Biennale is about to kick off and anyone who is even vaguely interested in Photography would find more than enough to […]

Melbourne in Winter

This post is not about photography or toy cameras per se, but about Melbourne at night this Winter. I went to the excellent Dali – Liquid Desires exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria late night and afterwards wandered around with my BBF attached to a tripod, shutter set on “B” for some night exposures. […]

‘Sometimes We Yearn For The Dream’

Apologies for a general lack of content and updates. Dealing with a busy work environment (thank you Swine Flu!) and family life has left me with less time and energy than I normally would have. I am still taking photos when I can, of course. Thanks to a contact on flickr who pointed me to […]

The Digital Harinezumi from Superheadz

Harinezumi & World Wide Pinhole Photography Day!!

Woot! Double bonus for me (well, triple if you count my coming off nightshift yesterday morning) not only is it World Pinhole Day, my second equal favourite photography day of the year next to World Toy Camera Day, but the Digital Harinezumi from Superheadz arrived from Japan on Friday! More on both of these things […]

Fujica Single-8 P2 - good old fashioned movie camera.

Loving The BBF

This post shows a video which was edited from a digital transfer from some good old fashioned analogue 8mm film. Taken with a Fuji Single-8 movie camera; no sound, 16 frames per second, fixed focus, point and shoot – probably the movie camera equivalent of a ‘toy camera’ with wonderful artifacts, colour and retro look […]


More Harinezumi News

Just a quick post, as I’m working a late-early turnover and am quite frankly, stuffed and must hit the sack… thanks to my new tumblr feed, I have read some rather cool and groovy details about the Digital Harinezumi camera on Nic Nichols site. He has been working hard to keep us informed with all […]

SuperHeadz Plamodel DIY 35mm Camera

Plastic, Plastic, a little bit of digital…
