Last Lisbon post I promise: some 35mm photos, taken on my Olympus OM10. My old SLR’s getting a bit creaky – the advance mechanism jammed again and ruined another film (containing all the photos I took of the lovely resident cats at St Jorg castle, sob); I think he needs a service. It was very misty for most of our stay, hence the grey/white tinge.

Unfortunately, as well as film-jamming woes I also didn’t realise I was shooting on slide film for some pictures, which the developing shop cross-processed. The colour shifts it produced are ker-azzzyyy! Sometimes the effect is cool, but didn’t really work with the muted pastels of Lisbon (it did make our lovely sunshine-y wander in the Jardim Bot├ónico look much more eerie and alien, though). So I mucked with the scans some more in Photoshop, desaturating some and colour-correcting others, and managed to salvage a few.

    I love the effects you've got in these shots – however much by accident! Who needs Hipstamatic?!
