Benetton Style: Cycle Chic

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: January 10th, 2012

Whilst I’m still away on a vacation in Hong Kong I’ve recently taken up cycling as a form of exercise to curb my boredom, being stuck living in a countryside surrounding by its villages, wetlands, mountains, sea and NO SHOPS is rather boring!  Let alone its beautiful green scenery which looks like a 3D watercolour landscape.  Staying away from its traditional cycling clothing (or dull clothing) I wanted to dress in comfort – casual style with a hint of chicness, I’m wearing menswear flannel checked shirt over with Benetton diamond knitted jumper, paired with beige casual trousers and bright purple sneakers, unfortunately my hair needed omph to finalised the whole look.  I wanted to wear lace heeled boots but due to health and safety I decided not to risk the danger of falling over.  Safety comes first!

Fancy cycling in central London? Rent a Boris Bike (Barclay Cycling Hire), click HERE for details.

 Save the polaroid

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: June 25th, 2011

I remember in pre 2008 a standard sized Polaroid 600 was available in major supermarkets, film shops and tourist shops for a mere £10 for a pack of 10 films for any compatible SX-70 and 600 camera series. In February 2008, alarmed by the digital era Polaroid ceased production of all instant film due to decline in use and sales of chemical film plummeted by decelerating rate. Nowadays, you would find the rare Polaroid 600 on Amazon and Ebay for astonishing prices varied from £30 to £60 depending on the age of the film… shocking. Recently I was fortunate enough to find a pack hidden in my youngest sibling’s junk drawer, and I am determined to save the legacy and use it in the right moment of time.

Miraculously, in 2010 a group called the Impossible Project have acquired Polaroid’s old equipment and factory in Netherlands, their aim was to restart production of analogue instant film from the factory’s old colour dyes (dyes are not available anymore) for vintage Polaroid cameras in 2010 and onwards.

For more detailed information about the Impossible Project and if you would like to get your hands on their Polaroid camera and film, please check at http://www.the-impossible-project.com and The Photographers’ Gallery in London at http://photonet.org.uk I have bought their films a numerous times, it is an addictive and expensive hobby.

Save The Polaroid!
