Hard World - Sale this Weekend

"Hard World" was started by myself and fellow Ex-Wise Head, Geoff Leigh, in order to re-release the first Ex-Wise Heads album "No Grey Matter" in 2002, it's been an on and off thing since then, but as time and budgets allow, we have put out most of the Ex-Wise Heads material, two albums by Mirage (Geoff Leigh and Cathy Williams), my two solo albums, guitarist Rajan Spolia's "More than Words", the Endless Tapes material and most recently the O.R.k. album "Inflamed Rides".

The story isn't over yet, and I am glad to say there are a few more things in the pipeline too…..

In the meantime, this weekend sees a "flash sale" with discounts across all the following Hard World releases at burning shed, please click on the titles below for more information:

Interesting Failures….

For every photo I am happy with, on any given developed reel, there's usually a whole load of failures, mistakes, experiments that come to nothing and weird results, as unpredictability and the unexpected is built into the use of Lomo cameras. 
There's probably a philosophical parallel with many other areas of life, so please enjoy this small selection of the many duds, whilst perhaps speculating on the randomness of it all…..
In truth, some of these I quite like.

Double exposure, baby and plant.

Totally out of focus blur of something, nice colours though.
