I bet you've never seen this one before? It's probably from some time last summer, but I don't think I posted any results from the tiny little plasticy Diana Mini camera I had coming my way about a year ago or so? Anyway, here's one. Half-frame and what else could not be said about it. It's the kind of thing you can choose between two formats. 36x36mm or 24x36mm. Cool, huh? Just one thing: If sharp negs are your style, this is nothing for you! It's totally impossible to even get the tiniest detail to stuck sharply on film inside this lovely little box. And yes, it leaks of course. And the shutter release button is a nightmare. Lots of fun inside a small box, in other words.
Yesterday was another day we really had to work hard for the money. Up at 5.30 in the morning to be at work 6 o'clock. Non-stop flat out until 1am before I could throw myself to bed, which I did. Today seems to be a lot better, as we are at sea. Everything just falls into routine work then, which is very much to prefere.
This is something I extracted from a film exposed inside one of the Nikon's, I think. It's from the lovely city of Bergen, as some of you might have guessed already. Not very lucky with the exposure of this frame, but I'm used to that.
I snapped the daily one, though! At least I seem to have come into that routine, at least. Nothing you will jump through the roof about, of course, but that has probably never been the point of doing 365 projects either, I guess. What's pretty obvious is that the ones snapped during my periods of work will probably be on the extremely boring side. I'll try to be creative, but I must say I find that a bit hard. And it will only get worse, probably. You will, most likely, think you've seen the same snaps a hundred times before. But heck, I'll try!
There might be some of this sorts during the 365 project. Some hydraulic powerpacks this is, making this huge pile of steel able to steer wherever we like it to. Two similar units on each side of the vessel, a total of four steering powerpacks. Should be safe enough then, I think. As this is a DP Class 3 vessel there are rules telling how it should be built. There are so much stuff on this vessel that you would think we could perfectly well do with 1/4th of the equipment. And yes, that's absolutely right. Still, we need backups and backups of the backups... and that's why stuff seems to be piling up over here. It's kind of cool, though.
I have briefly started to put together a plan to get my films developed when I get home. There will be chemicals needed, I think, so I need to get an order for some fix and developer put together soon. I think I'm starting to get a bit short on fix.
I would also need to stock up on some paper at some point, but I think I will manage for some time yet. The hope is to get abroad this summer anyway, and prefereably over to old England where paper is a lot cheaper than back home. Then I might be able to save some money. At least if I buy a nice little bunch of it. We'll see, but that might be the plan I'll go for.
Other than that, I'm fine, thank you.
