Another shot of Paris from January 2011 when I was in the middle of my Lego minifigure 365 project. I stated a couple days ago that I really enjoyed shooting the city in January. Here is the Cathedral of Notre Dame shot with my Lomography Diana Mini camera with color slide film cross processed (just at Target 1 hour photo). The gray overcast day led to an interesting sky with the cross processing…

One of the fun things about the Diana Mini is that it is a completely manual plastic camera. That means you have to remember to advance the film manually after every time you take a shot. Or else you will get multiple exposures on a frame. I don’t know if the double exposure was accidental or deliberate. Ether way, I like the outcome…
