New Work, New Toy Camera (Mini Diana)

While in Charleston this past weekend, I somehow ended up at Urban Outfitters (go figure) and stumbled upon the Mini Diana. So I bought it and three rolls of film. We had really cloudy weather, light rain all weekend so I had to buy ASA 800 color print film. What a fun little guy!

I think I'm back to film finally! This little jewel is now my favorite camera and I won't be anywhere with one! If you don't have one. Buy it.

Below are some selected pics I couldn't wait to share. I hope you like them as much as I do ... let me know what you think. These are toned scans off the one-hour processing disc--a few of them, soon to be prints for sale. Stay tuned on that!

Thanks for stopping by the blog. Those are a couple of my favs too. The Ghost one freaks me out a bit ... spooky!

great stuff! My fiance just bought me the Diana Mini for Christmas, but I can't have it until then! It's killing me especially after seeing these pics! My fave is the Church spire pic, great shot.

Wonderful series of a grand old city. We have stayed at the Mils House and have wonderful memories. Now we have a Matt original to remind us of a very special time in Charleston.
