Return to 110 Format photography

A few years ago i bought a Kodak Instamatic off Ebay and took a number of photos in the venerable 110 film format. Then i dropped the camera in the mud at Plantbrook Nature Reserve and it went a bit funny. For a few years i got sidetracked but earlier this year i decided to finish the film off in that original camera (which i was unsure still worked or not) and also buy a second Instamatic and try some new film (made by Lomography no less).

And i got the results back yesterday and some of the photos are really pretty interesting. Both cameras work fine so i will continue to use both in future. The Lomo film was Lomography Lobster Redscale 110 which gives everything a reddy tinge, it also adds a period feel to photos such as the one of Shakespeare's birthplace below, which looks like it might have been taken in the 19th century but infact was was taken in January 2013! I have a black and white Lomo film too ready for use.
