Brief reflection on how life is full of bittersweet ironies....
I’m off to Cannes to join the lomography team already there covering the festival (http://microsites.lomography.com/cannes/), something I am very very very excited about!
How I got here feels sweetly ironic. I started taking pics with my Diana F+ about a year ago – a pic here, a pic there, develop the film 3 months later….. (I bet you’re thinking “she get’s to go to Cannes and I don’t! she?!?!?”) I was getting enthusiastic about analogue film photography again but was not very systematic about it….
A few months ago, I suddenly had a lot more time on my hands to explore the realms of film (boyfriend dumped me, if you want to know….) and did it with much gusto! I had now many photos piling up but still no LomoHome – too busy, I thought I was…..
A few weeks ago I went home for a beach mini break and it rained the whole f***ing time!!! I was very upset but suddenly had ALL this time to start my LomoHome ( no more excuses!)
And what has happened since has blown my mind! I’ve made many new friends (really!) have become completely addicted to analogue and…. I get to go to Cannes Film festival!!!!! it’s funny how things that really suck at one point end up pushing you in the right direction!
more to come on Cannes…..!
