Not only has a year gone by but indeed my first year as a lomographer has passed. I faced loads of troubles, lovely photographs and I've meet a couple of endearing people. :)
It’s hard to choose one single shot of a whole year of photographs. I’ve “only” taken about 400-500 photos in the last year. But if you look through your pictures and think about all that has happened, you don’t really know what image deserves to be your “shot of the year”.
Finally I took this one:
I think it represents my idea of lomography very well. This shoot shows a kind of magic, nostalgia and mysterious.
You never know how a shot turns out and your photographs are often a mystery to strangers. That’s what I love most about lomography. You get to know a hint of someone’s life without getting in touch with the complete story.
And well, the only magic left is art and I do believe that photography deserves to be declared as art! So keep on shooting!
This shot actually was taken on a traditional “Christkindlmarkt” (a kind of market set up for christmas, you can get any kind of decoration or food there!), which is always located in a forest. They had this lightning ball hanging up between the trees and I just couldn’t get my eyes of it.
And when I was taking exactly this shot a guy walked up to me and asked me about my camera and analogue photography — which really suprised me, as I had my inkognito Zenit with me.
Thanks for reading :) Lots of LomoLove
