My first camera

Remember I-zone cameras? That fad? The Polaroid cameras with four basic settings that printed out stamp sized pictures with colourful borders?
I was nine years old when I got one and it was the first camera I owned.
My mother sent along some of my things from Hong Kong recently and among them were a collection of some of my I-zone photographs. It's exciting to see them. To see what my nine year old self found photo worthy (it's mainly people, nothing changed there).
I've scanned them all in, and though I'm sure it excites me far more than it will anyone else, I wanted to share some.

View of St. Douglas castle from my bedroom window. First apartment we lived in during my time in Hong Kong.
Baldovino Barani (an incredible fashion photographer who has done many on location shoots in Hong Kong) actually used this as the location for his Gossip Girl editorial. (see below)
I used to play hide and seek around here.

I even took self-portraits back then:

  1. the old photos are great, especially the blurred ones, they got this cool retro look like a foggy dream nice nice!:)

  2. I had the exact same camera. Haha. With the same boarders and stuff. Oh Emilia. I like how you rocked the same expression even back then.

    Love that 'gossip girl' shot.

    Looking forward to seeing a black and white shoot from you soon?
