The September weather may be a bit dreary, but that didn't stop Lomographers from all over the New York City from dropping by for Blue Hour! Everyone grabbed a sandwich and a beer while enjoying some amazing music courtesy of this week's DJ Radius!
The Blue Hour is a weekly event for all Lomographers to enjoy some social refreshments and entertainment. Stop by the Gramercy Lomography Gallery Store each and every Thursday from 6pm and make some new friends! As you may know “The blue hour” comes from the French expression l’heure bleue, which refers to the time after the sun goes below the horizon and the sky goes into deep blue for a while. The time is considered special for photography, because of the quality of the light at this time of day. This event is always FREE! If you are a DJ, musician or performer and would like an opportunity to perform at Lomography’s Blue Hour please email your information to email@example.com
Be sure to join us next week! Same time same place.

Read more about his inspirations and how he feels analog equipment, whether it be for music or photography, has something that digital just doesn't. As a special bonus, you can listen to his exclusive Heartbreaker set!

It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
