PX 100.

PX 100 silver shade / first flush.

finally the first order of new polaroid sx-70 has arrived! they are called PX 100 and it's the first sx-70 film that I am using in my Polaroid Land Camera 1000, that I have got back in 2006.

Jacopo has a Land Camera 1000S and today we went out to try a few first shots. the result is quite peculiar, but we have to improve our "modifying" skills.

✻ before.

✻ after.

another sunny day.

I got a beautiful letter, full of sweets, from two of my bestest friends Amanda and Emma.

also Emi and Jacopo got a postcard and a letter each; I got a postcard too and I also got a lovely colourful bird pin from amanda:
"But the pin is all yours. I used to wear it so much in the past and I found it in my drawer today and I think maybe yuo'll like it."

thank you Amanda and Emma: you send the loveliest letters and I promise I will consider your back-up plan!
Jacopo came to visit me with a wonderful and much appreciated surprise:
a finnish vintage rain poncho.
will I be able to wait for a rainy day to wear it? I think it's just perfect!

go do.

"Go sing, too loud
Make your voice break - Sing it out
Go scream, do shout
Make an earthquake...

You wish fire, would die and turn colder
You wish, your love, could see you grow older
We should always know that we can do anything

Go drum, do go out
Make your hands ache - Play it out
Go march through crowds
Make your day break...

You wish silence, released noise in tremors
You wish, I know it, surrender to summers
We should always know that we can do everything

Go do, you'll know how to
Just let yourself, fall into landslide

Go do, you'll know how to
Just let yourself, give into low tide

Go do!

Tie strings to clouds
Make your own lake - Let it flow
Throw seeds to sprout
Make your own break - Let them grow

Let them grow (Endless summers)
Let them grow (Endless summers)

(Go do endless summers)

You will survive, will never stop wonders
You and sunrise will never fall under

You will survive, will never stop wonders
You and sunrise will never fall under
We should always know that we can do anything

✻ my preorder of jónsi's "go" special edition is finally on its way.

● on the 12th I'll get my result from TAIK!
● an unexpected exhibition where I will be exposing Project RECOLLECTION for the first time is on its way.
I'll keep you posted!
