Capturing the Golden Light

With the dropping temperatures comes the golden light. This is the first Autumn that I’ve owned a film camera; so I am presently besotted with lens flares and yellow skies. Today, I spent my afternoon frolicking through the trees with my beloved Holga. Willows are my favourite-ever trees, and today we wandered through a large cluster. I was an avid jungle-runner back in Brunei, so there is something I love about being level with the tendrils of a looming tree. The light crept through the leaves so beautifully; I hope my photographs can capture it!

As for my outfit, I wore a plain long sleeved dress paired with blue tassel loafers, via Wanted Shoes. My waistcoat is one of my best-ever finds. It is completely 70s, with a zigzag pattern, and a navy faux fur collar. It’s always exciting when it is cold enough to wear it! It truly is one of my warmest pieces – today I was even able to brave bare legs!

  5. I just love that second picture of you. So lovely. <3

    I have a Holga, and I've shot several rolls of film with it, but I've yet to get them developed. I just can't deal with the prices right now, which is sad because they seem so fun. :(

  6. Willows are seriously the prettiest trees…I love how they droop. Some of the willows near my dorm area are blooming now and it’s so damn pretty!

    I love your shoes and cardi, and your hair looks so pretty in these!

  9. I think this has to one of my favorite looks. I like that you kept both your hair and makeup neutral, allowing the vest in particular to stand out. The combo really does feel 70s.
    When I think of willow trees, it always reminds me of Pocahontas and fairy tales, haha. It feels like a peaceful place to enjoy a good book. =)
