Also tried some more of the doll work which I might do towards the final major project, that photo can be found in that post.
This photo was done for part of the easter holiday project to feature eggs, there are eggs laying on the ground and being thrown up in the air:
This piece was inspired by Andrew Wyeth's painting 'cristina's world' 1948. I saw it and loved everything about it.

This was his first reply:
"Hi Leah, I kinda make my own oppertunities.. lol have a look at my latest creation www.highroydsarchive.co.uk let me know what you think.
If you want to take some pictures in high royds I can possibly get you in with me. we have to be invisible and stealthy.

So i'm somewhat excited about getting some shots, really wish there was going to be no builders there and I could get a model in, I'll probs regret not getting a model for it.
Did some reserch on the place found a movie was filmed there called 'Asylum' here is a video trailer:
And that the Kaiser Chiefs wrote a song about the hospital.
And that they are now plans to make it into housing, orginally they wanted to knock it down and build houses because it was too many bad memories of the place but now they are going to be restored, similar to the ones in Wakefield.
I really love old abdondedn places like this and going to try and make some contact and see if I can get in there for some photos.
I found this photo of somebodys on a blog and loved it:
And found this video of someone who lives 100yards from the place:

I had an idea of some old wire I had wrapped around my face but couldn't find it and went hunting in the spare bedroom and found my old prom dress, which felt weird wearing and actually was too big for me now!
The exciting part was in the shop when I bought myself a Holga 120CFN (shown below). I've later bought a 35mm convertor for it since it is not so easy to develop medium format. Also Paul bought a lomograph camera.
I went to CC Imaging to get my film developed and it didn't turn out so good lots of photos were missing and you only get 12 shots! And I had big problems trying to scan them in at college (another reason why I love digital).
At the moment I have a B&W film in which will probs never get developed because how poor the other one was. Then I will start to test my 35mm convertor which should be nice and easy because I can go to tesco!
