Elvis Martinez challenges you n°1

Let's play a little game together on a given theme


Hey fellows !

We recently had discussions with @guiguiste, @adbigmilk, @jeabzz and @cc-in-paris about doing series albums, made of photos already existing in our personal archives, on a given theme.

I thought it could be funny to challenge you guys , all those who want to participate in this little game :)


I swear I didn’t smoke too much of these before thinking of this ;)

So here it is. I propose a theme, and those interested may create an album and share it here.
It may be fun AND instructive to compare our ideas on a given theme, and ideally it could even give more ideas to everyone. Let’s see if it works, and if so, someone may propose another theme ?!

There’s nothing to win, it’s just for fun and sharing ! :D

My first theme would be SHADOWS. So let’s focus on photos on which shadows play a significant role.

Have a look at the album I created for the occasion in the second comment below
And do your own!
Do not hesitate to give feedback, more ideas, everything you think of !


Ready, steady, GO!!
Hope you’ll enjoy :)
Lomo on !

    @all thanks for the quick feedback :D

    @mephisto sure
    @mikahsupageek wow that was fast, and great stuffs, really dig the 4th image with the Horizon!
    @stratski good occasion to start :)
    @warning I didn't know about Damien Jurado! Dark but nice! I'd also recommend Shadowboxer by Fiona Apple :)
    @sebastianerras or you can create one with existing but even greater if you have some unreleased stuffs to show us :)
    @maria_vlachou wow the one with the pigeons (and their shadows) is great!!
    @quaisoir cooool don't worry
    @werriston thanks mate

    @all please try to have the shadow as the main subject in the photo
    thank you again everybody, it's fun :)

    Really like this 'games' idea, Elvis - and I loved your shadows album too! I don't have an album's worth of shadow shots myself, so will have to sit this one out. However, I look forward to the next theme you propose - especially if it's, say, pigs flying over Battersea power station...? Only kidding ;-)
