Picture This!


*"I find it to be magical - I feel like I'm loving you in 1963. Flowers in my hair now, little bitty hearts upon my cheek"* - Rachael Yamagata, "1963":http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvLvphjdBws

“I find it to be magical – I feel like I’m loving you in 1963. Flowers in my hair now, little bitty hearts upon my cheek” – Rachael Yamagata, 1963

The season of love is still up and fluttering ‘bout, and sometimes we get that feeling of ’Free Love’. Think of the 1960s hippie movement where random people just go up to you and sashay you with flowers, give you a warm hug (or kiss) and just spread the love! Show to us your most Bohemian, but not too extreme photos of affection and stand to win in our Picture this! Rumble.

    my submission is sadly a romance that both parties want to happen and for reasons beyond their control, it has probably ruined a great friendship.. but i think this double is amamzing to have captured them both!

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    Action.. basket time!

    As you can see in my albums, I love to photograph sports events. In this case, I used a pretty Actionsampler camera to document a mini basketball game played in the park of my city Como, in celebration of the Festival of Sports.
