Instant Film: Mt. Eden 2

I’ve had a cold for the last couple of days and have been stuck inside with chicken noodle soup, lemon+honey drinks and a nose that doesn’t seem to stop sneezing - I considered trying for the world record of longest sneezing fit but the current world record is 977 days! Instead I decided to venture outside for some fresh air, and ended up finding a hidden path to get up the side of Mt Eden and into Tahaki Reserve.

Sony TC-161SD Cassette Deck Repair

I quite like cassette tapes - particularly recording mixtapes. I acquired a 1970’s Sony cassette deck earlier this year - I chose this one because of it’s gorgeous wooden plinth and top-loading cassette tray. It plays back fine, and sounds pretty good for it’s age. However, earlier today, the play button stopped working - I physically couldn’t depress the switch anymore. I removed the top and bottom covers to reveal the complex inner workings.

Instant Film: Mt. Eden

One of my goals for 2017 is to take an instant film photograph every single day. Yesterday I had lunch at one of my favourite places in Mt Eden - on the actual mountain bit, not the suburb. As I was leaving I captured this photo of myself walking up a hill. I hung the camera in a nearby tree and set the timer before rushing back to get in position.

Mixtape: Life Below The Storm

I woke up a cold this morning - and went out for a walk listening to my ‘Sick Days’ mixtape I made the last time I had a cold. I decided to make a new mixtape for when I was feeling under the weather. It’s mainly based around some artists I have been listening to a lot lately.
