Blooming Roses

Last weekend Allison and I decided to go take pictures of this church near my apartment because the roses are in bloom.  It is one of my favourite places in Toronto in June because all the roses are lined up against this metal fence in a whole variety of different pinks and reds, it's so amazing. We used the diana mini since I bought it months ago and have only used it maybe three times. I have to say, I love photography but I am simply rubbish at learning how to use it. I wish I had a magic wand that I could just say "make it look old timey" (this is probably why I use the iphone so much, even though I love the look of film). Anyway, we took the diana mini out and I think we got mixed results. 
I'm wearing: 
- a thrifted skirt that I must have bought about 5 years ago!
- a blouse that was Allison's great aunt's that she gave to me
- those MADRAS for a.p.c. sandals I always wear
- an aa bow
- and topshop sunglasses
And I apologize for the frown in this image, I was having a lovely time so I don't know where it came from?
Someone yelled "Sailor Moon" at me while we were walking, which I thought was pretty appropriate, even though I hadn't thought of it. Anyway, I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and has lots of fun stuff planned.

  10. It's a very sweet outfit, but I was thinking more Alice in Wonderland or even Snow White. The collar is just darling and I love the lighting effects in your photography.

  23. Ha, those random people who shout at you on the street! I love this outfit, especially the collar + sunglasses!

    I find the Diana craze a bit mystifying, since you can reproduce the effects easily enough. I get that the camera itself is really cute though!
