i attended brownstock festival for the second year in a row (see my post about last year's here). of course i managed to successfully avoid any of the professional photographers, yet i managed to go through a total of two and a half disposable cameras, as well as most of the film on my lomo fisheye (yet to be developed, the suspense/fear lies palpably inside my bag).
i don't know whether it's the board games, pianoke (there was a rather impressive rendition of parklife), or the mindset of the local rugby club to dress up (i saw mankinis, a french maid, and some nuns), but i just love brownstock. it's small, especially when compared to the only other nearby festival v, but that just adds to the charm. and lessens the queue for the mediterranean wraps. so good, i can't even.

and somehow we adopted/inherited/won a pink unicorn, christened dave.

ps, i've been featured by florrie on british style bloggers. click through if you fancy a little read about paying to wash your clothes and how film photography is fab.

  35. Thank you for your comment on my blog Rebecca! I'm soooo excited to start my driving lessons now. Well done on passing too (a little belated now I know haha) but I bet it's amazing to have the freedom to just get into a car and drive yourself anywhere you want now. Also, thank you for your kind words on twitter the other day, really made me feel like I wasn't just this lost fish when it came to uni and ucas etc...
