so i recently acquired a Ricoh GR1s from Japan,i chose this camera cos i wanted something small and light.
it fits in any pocket, and is fairly quick and easy to use but sometimes i wish it wasnt so wide, but 28mm isnt too bad..
these shots were taken on the streets of Melbourne over the last 2 weeks.
Ricoh Gr1s and Fuji Neopan SS 100 film.
i bought this camera a few weeks ago, and it was in pretty bad shape.
the lens hood doesnt open, or close properly, the magnifying eyepiece is missing and battery terminals for light meter are missing.
despite all that, all mechanical operation appears to be in good working order!
this is the first roll of film i put through it, i was a bit skeptical about the condition of the light seals, but all is good.
Kodak Tri-X 400.
The evening of March 16 sees the opening of the debut group exhibition by the Rambler Collective titled; Real Gone.
The Collective formed late 2011 and has already seen two of the four current members through their first solo exhibitions.
Hollie M Kelley, Ryan McGennisken, Jamie Hall and James Ruff will be
showcasing a large body of work loosely based around the concept of escapism, reflecting their love of art, travel and music.
Drawings, paintings and photographs will be nestled amongst ambitious installations, constructed from found objects, salvaged timber and paper sculptures.
Also featured at the opening performing live will be:

Elk and Whale
and Fee Brown
playing downstairs from 6pm.
I couldn't surrender, try as they might, to an expectation, a label, or a routine. Constantly I'd struggle, trying to fit in a preconceived mold but I'd only end up hurting myself in the process, I was either too big, too small, or the wrong 'shape' of thinking!
