currently there is this "divide your likes into a hundred" rumble which is a nice bonus for the hardcore-likers. i know what it means doing something pretty often on this page as over the last months - except for my time off during holidays - i was always among the top commenters. well, even though i´m not always writing personal messages i only write something if i really like the photo and/or if it is compared to others in the album better. but comments are different from likes…
… often i think that the like button is pushed nonsensically. liking 30 shots of an album within less than two minutes means the user didn´t have a look at the shots and therefore i claim he won´t remember any of these if he ever wants to show or discuss with another user over a certain photo.
i don´t remember all my likes but as i comment and have a closer look i pretty often remember those photos that blew me – and this can only happen if you actually look at it. as you know just two weeks ago i started my personal collection to archive those photos and some more. unfortunately some user don´t care so they don´t submit their photos i asked for. well, maybe LSI opens the collection for user to add pictures themselves. anyway i remember a lot of them and for some of them i´m really glad i took another look at what i liked in the past.
enough talk! now to the core of this blog entry. to somehow hack this competition i introduce you a photo i really really like. it´s one of my favourites here and one of those i always remember.
even though this photos has a few more than 10 likes i take this one because it´s so nice. speaking of lomography this is a photo which includes about all characteristics. taken with a lomo cam, a nice focus, blurry, light leaks and a hint of a silhouette. the girl is a beauty. the pose is great. the fact that she isn´t looking into the camera might lead to speculation if this is a snapshot or if she is posing for the pic. @memoryholes might know and explain. the light is great so her hair leaves a shadow on one side of her face. the light shimmer in her hair looks nice and i really adore that the focus is exactly on her face and the other parts of the picture are getting more blurry. and finally the leaks are making it top-notch for me.
