This stunning collection of light leaks is by Jared Elizares (je m'appelle j. rad on Flickr)

What an amazing colour palette!

Jared says of his work; "So, I've been collecting film cameras for a while. My dad was cleaning out his garage and found an unused Kodak disposable that expired in 2009... He gave it to me last year, but I hadn't gotten around to shooting it until recently.

Lately, I've been preoccupied by shooting technically advanced cameras, like medium format SLRs. Unfortunately, messing around with knobs and dials I end up missing the moment that I initially wanted to capture! 

Thus, on a recent photo walk with my Lomography coworker, I thought that I'd take the disposable so that I could simplify things and just shoot. I expected the exposure to be a bit off; However, I didn't know how long the camera was in my father's garage. The Arizona summers are blazing hot, so the camera had basically baked for years! 

The colors are beautiful, even if unexpected. I'm definitely going to be shooting more disposable. I'd forgotten how much fun it is to give up control over an image and just work with a fixed lens and a simple camera! I'd also be interested in baking my own films in the future.
