cheers for the faving!

a split second after taking the last picture the middle seagull bit the seagull on the left's ass, much to the delight and hilarity of the seagull on the right.

What a lovely set. What camera did you take these with, they don't look digital. Or perhaps the shadow was added afterwards?

oj - holga 120 cfn, loaded with slide film - usually fuji velvia or astia. I don't do any post-processing apart from some brightness/contrast changes.

Well it's lovely. The last is particularly nice. There's a nostalgic effect - it looks more like the act of remembering a beach, than a beach you might have photographed recently.

That sounds pretentious! I know what I mean, but I'm tired!

First thing came to my mind is these shots are from the eye of a granny, wearing a flowery printed headscarf, carrying a basket, walking along the beach collecting shells.
