Just several random shots. :)

And no - I don't mean drinking vodka-shots. ;) At least: not at the moment, hahahahah! ;)

Well, from time to time I have some single photos: I don’t have any particular album to put them into, so I just put them into the “Various” album. If we even could call it an ‘album’, heh.

Normally nobody pays attention to the ‘already existing albums’, so I decided to collect the stuff and mention it in one blog’s entry. The photos have been made lately (more/less) which would be 2013-2014, in this case.

The photos have been made in various periods of time, with various cameras and even various film format (35mm and the 110 microfilm, that I’m a fan of).

First shots You can see below, I made in July 2013, in Nysa, while the 3-days meeting of Atari computers’ fans (8bit and 16bit machines from 80s + the Atari Falcon, a 32bit computer from early 90s).

The photos have been made with a really totally plastic strongly 80s style German machine: Beirette SL 100N (looking like a very nice toy more, than a real camera – still, being able to perform well, while shooting).

Sadly the heat/temperature was SO hellish, that the film has been rather destroyed. Hence – I had to cut the photos sometimes, to make them useful at least, hehe.

Maybe they’re not very nice but considering their destroyed “ancient” look – and the 80s camera itself, it really feels like some holidays from the magical 80s, haha. ;) Even though the photos have been made in 2013. ;)

The camera looks like this http://yerzmyey.republika.pl/beirette_SL_100n.jpg by the way.

And the one below was only a test, that I made previously, in my city – Krakow, from my balcony, hahah. ;) Lame, I know. ;)
Anyway I remember I was soooooo happy that the camera worked despite of its age and fully plastic structure. ;)

Except the 80s plastic cameras, I’m also a fan of similar machines but in modern version, produced mostly by http://www.lomography.com/ – and especially I love Diana Baby. I have never made a single shot on 110 film before the 2013 and it was the Lomography Society that “taught” me to love this format.
Below You can find several lo-fi photos made with the mentioned Diana Baby in Rabka and Chabowka cities, in August of 2013.

Yeah, an oldschool locomotive, haha. ;) Not very typical for me, huh? ;) Anywayz. Sadly seems like they have been kinda destroyed while developing, in the lab. So the photos don’t look very realistic. Although – on the other hand – that’s what we expect from low-fidelity photos, don’t we? ;-)

For example, below You can see even some strange things on the film (on the left hand side), although entire photo seems to be actually in a pretty good condition. Hm. Strange.

Sadly, for last months the Lomography Embassy in PL doesn’t want to order 110 films (which is sad and disturbing), so probably I will have to order them from the http://www.lomography.com – luckily they consequently don’t abandon the 110 community. :)

We don’t need any “digital quality” – we love our tiny machines and the unreal and dreamy look of the microfilm photos. :)

I realize not everybody like this lo-fi atmosphere but – somehow – I got totally fascinated with Diana Baby, Holga Micro and other 110 machines. I have also Pentax 110 and Minolta 110. :) Well – seems like I’m a real maniac, hahaha. ;)

If You’re new into the lomography, You might want to know how does the Diana Baby look like. Here it is:

Another short ‘series’ that didn’t suit to any real collection was the one consisted of several shots taken in Krakow, in March 2014. You can take a look below.

They were my last rectangular photos made with Diana Mini (another nice lo-fi camera from the Lomography Society). Since then I make only square ones (I like them better).
Well, as You can see, it wasn’t a sunny day, heh.

Photo by yerzmyey

They have been taken just after we got back from Slovakia, from the Forever party: an international meeting for fans of all 8-bit computers, hehe. ;) So – as You can guess – I’m a fan of old computer hardware (and clones) as well as old photography hardware – and its clones. ;) It makes sense, doesn’t it? ;)

Photo by yerzmyey

Of course BEHIND ME there was a bus station and a crowd of people, hahah, but I usually try to find some places that can look nice at least from ONE side. ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

Diana Mini isn’t as tiny as the Baby model is – but still it’s really cute, small – and handy. ;)

And the last photography for today – the most fresh one (below). It was made this month actually (May) and I used Beirette VSN2. It shows a sunrise in Czestochowa city. I don’t usually get up so early – and this one I took only because I have been then on – of course – one more Atari meeting, heh. ;) So we even didn’t go to sleep, chatting all the night, playing old games from 80s, and watching demos. Hence – it was an occasion to take a picture of the sunrise.

And this is Beirette VSN2: http://yerzmyey.republika.pl/beirette_vsn_2.jpg
A very stylish machine, in my humble opinion.

OK, so that’s all for today. I do hope it wasn’t too boring. ;)
Byezzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Big fan of the Beierette VSN when used as an occasional alternative to my other cameras. Not my everyday camera, but a nice change of pace. And lovely grey plastic!
