Adventures in Black and White

More Hipstamatic double exposures.  I don't know who this woman is, or why there are two posters of her in Ashton Lane, but she does go quite well with the leaves.

Glass roses

Obviously the tower had to feature at some point...

Clouded trees

Light through a star and "The Twelve Dancing Princesses".

My latest favourite photo app is Hipstamatic's multiple exposure plugin (multiple exposures are also my favourite thing about my real Holga).  It's also given me a chance to try out some black and white double exposures before going out with actual black and white film.  I did have another one like this that I liked a bit better, but it said "permit" across it, which is a daft word to have on your photo.

Threads of Ska

Threads was back after a bit of a break last week with an all-ska programme, where everyone was moving fast (including the crowd).

I recently acquired this tiny Kibble Palace-alike for my office window ledge.  The clover's not really there - it's a double exposure to give the general impression of plants, although some viola seeds are hopefully germinating in it as we speak.  

It's only about 3 inches tall and the same along, so I could really do with a tiny sprinkler system in it so that I don't have to take the whole thing off the base to water the seeds, which tends to lead to the roof collapsing.  I'm also a bit worried about what will become of the roof if the violas do grow as, while they're fairly small plants, they're not that small and I fear it might all turn into a bit of a triffid scenario...
