Flow festival's first night was beautiful. All the pink, green and blue lights, all the details, all the weird looking buildings waiting to be captured. I hope my Diana did a good job. I used the 16 pic frame for the the first time. The film ripped a little bit but I think I saved most of it. First few shots can be over exposed tho. Let's hope for the best.
I ran to the film store first thing in the morning. "Emme kehitä filmejä lauantaisin", the clerk said. I was really bummed. You and I both have to wait till Monday to see what Diana shot this time.
In the mean while I will send you some pics I took a few weeks ago at Anti Sweden party. I just love how the Parisian girl with red lips looks. She reminds me a bit of Mia in Californication. In a good way tho. I honestly think, she's the villain of the year. Mia, ei tämä tyttö.

And the worst part was, she agreed with him.
"Here we are", she thought, "at the edge of the world; the very edge of western civilization and all of us are so desperate to feel something, anything that we keep falling into each other and fucking our way towards the end of days.--
They met in 2001, spent most of the year in a darkroom but then lost their friendship for many years. In 2009 serendipity brought them back together. Now they are photographing again mostly with their Diana F+ cameras: Kirsikka in London, Emmi in Helsinki. They don't have a darkroom to share this time. This blog with its letters will just have to do.
