I’m based in London at the moment but I don’t know how long I’ll be here! I want to go to Tokyo soon but a lot depends on work and my girlfriend’s visa expiring! I’m getting itchy feet as I don’t much like London

It’s got to be my Olympus OM10. I got it off ebay for next to nothing and all my favourite photos were taken on it. I’m also really enjoying my iPhone camera which is the only digital thing I use. (I never touch my film photos but I edit my iPhone pictures using Afterlight, Vsco and Afterfocus which is really good for getting narrow depth of field)

"I want to urge you very strongly to travel as much as you can, and to evolve yourself as an internationalist. It’s as important a part of your education as a radical as the reading of any book.
[…]
In one way, travelling has narrowed my mind. What I have discovered is something very ordinary and unexciting, which is that humans are the same everywhere and that the degree of variation between members of our species is very slight. This is of course an encouraging finding; it helps arm you against news programs back home that show seething or abject masses of either fanatical or torpid people. In another way it is a depressing finding; the sort of things that make people quarrel and make them stupid are the same everywhere."

I don’t know how to scan my own negatives, so I went online to try and figure out how to do it without a neg scanner. 
The internet took me on a wild goose chase trying to find a quick and easy way to scan negatives. Most of them required me to create som kind of lightbox using ‘materials everyone has lying around the house’ like tracing paper. I haven’t had tracing paper in my house since I attended primary school.
Another used an old sandwich box lined with silver paper. I may as well go back to snappy snaps and hand over hard earned money.

I found an easy way around, I took my iPhone and downloaded a white image, placed it over the neg on the scanner. I scanned my image in then flipped the colours. 
I don’t know the first thing about image editing on computers so here’s my first attempt.
