    I can't remember taking over half of the shots on my roll of film.
    These are the ones I'm happy with to enter into the challenge.

    I'll go through the costs again
    Olympus mju zoom 105 £0.99
    Ilford XP5 £4.50
    bringing the total to £5.49!!!! Bargain!! :)

    I put one roll of film through the Oly and these are my unedited/uncopped shots.

    At this point I'd like to thank Hamish for a great lesson in developing the film to negatives, and Kev for scanning the images. Couldn't of done this challenge without the both of you :)

    The road to the music!

    Excellent set there Dan. The shot of the road is my favourite though. A really nice sense of motion and a simple composition. An excellent shot, Cheap-as-Chips or not.

    Yeah, they are the road lights.

    It was quite overcasted, almost like it was going to lash it down...... then it did for a moment. lol

    Here is another example....
