An impromptu road-trip where we end up in a postcard sunset

Are the clouds always this beautiful in January? Those pink and purple hues!

It was so cold out I stayed in the car most of the time, taking pictures through the windshield. In that last picture I was sitting in the car wrapped in my coat thinking: these tourists don’t have jackets on! Aren’t they freezing?

But it was an incredible sunset. It’s easy to forget sometimes, to stop and watch the sunset. A nearby road sign says “Aphrodite’s birthplace.” On days like these it seems entirely appropriate.

I had some SX-70 cyanotype film; I went to the beach. :)

The Summer: part 2 out of ∞

First beach day of the year! (pretty late) First beach polaroids of the year!

Went at noon like rookies and swam out for too long and got a tiny case of heatstroke.

(Sun too much for the polaroids, too.)

But, summer, yay! I wish I could live there in that blue overexposed moment staring at the water while falling asleep.

The Lion, the Girl, and the Palm Tree

Another year another Polaroid camera!

This one’s an old passport camera, the Miniportrait 402.

It has four lenses, and the focus is fixed (at 1.40 m) (it comes with a tape measure attachment!) which I think makes it very Oulipian. :)

Yesterday, at the beach:

Lion, Girl, Palm Tree

I’m still figuring it out ;)

Coral Bay

268 - 04-3

Sitting on the beach at Coral Bay looking at the sun set. A perfect day for an Impossible polaroid.

I wish this wasn’t a two hour drive from where I live.

(Sometimes I forget that I live on an island. I look at my pictures and remember, and get nostalgic for the beach.)

April

New trees planted, they’re already in bloom. (I think this is apricot.)

P1090817

Watching planes fly while lying under a big olive tree = new favorite thing.

P1100027

This place isn’t as small as you think. It’s not big, but it’s big enough for nice road-trips.

P1090949

Record Store Day, celebrated. No record store needed. (Here is a video of the music.)

P1100063

This island is small, you say. Have you been to this wonderful beach? (First time for me.)

P1100212

Is it warm enough to swim yet? (Maybe in two weeks. Hopefully.)

happy SX-70 Day

260-06

Paphos, near Aphrodite’s Rock (Petra tou Romiou) earlier this month.

And of course the photographer climbed to the edge of the cliff to take pictures.

I stayed behind, safely, with my SX-70.

These are the results.
