Kewpie Doll

Meet Pansy. Isn't she gorgeous? She is one of 12 giant kewpie dolls which featured in the closing ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. She now lives in Bungendore, NSW.

(Thanks, Susan -- your photo reminded me I had an extra reason to go back to Bungendore!)

Floriade Nostalgia

© Andrée Lawrey

This is one of my first toy camera photos. Taken at Floriade (Canberra's Spring flower festival) in September 2006, it could be a double exposure but I'm pretty sure that look comes from playing around with the camera's 'bulb' setting while shooting from the hip. The camera was a vintage 6x9 Agfa Clack and the film was Kodak 400 UC.
