My Lomo LC-A+ Story: Loyal Travel Buddy

3

Sometimes the most popular photos might not be the most favourite photos. Do you have the same thoughts too?? :)

This is an appeal of the shots that were taken by my LC-A+, which gained less attentions, but actually blew my mind off:

I’m actually quite surprised to see how different of views can people have when it comes to beauty judging. For instance, personally I think this picture is simply amazing and I love how it appeared to look quite abstract, but it has never made up to the most popular list.

Both images from the double exposure below could make out to be two single pictures with strong theme but they blended well with each other too! :)

This article explains how I came to know and got along with Lomography, The story of me and my LC-A+ began in year 2008. Since then, I’ve been bringing this little dearie everywhere I travel. I can’t board a flight nor train without knowing that it’s safe hanging around my neck or resting soundly in my bag.

Hereby I’m attaching a list of my favourite (and less popular) shots from all my journeys. LC-A+ has been a loyal travel buddy.

Here are the locations in order: Spring in Basel (1), Oslo (2), Park Guell at Barcelona (3), The Prague Old Town Square (4), Surrounded by lettuce at Cameron Highlands (5), The little girl in Malmo (6), Ruins in Siem Reap (7), The English telephone booth at Cambridge (8), So relaxing at Innsbruck (9), The old man that sells Tanghulu in Beijing (10), Artsy corner at Kuala Lumpur Chinatwon (11), Easter feathers in Stockholm (12), Double in Lang Tengah Island (13), The lazy puppy at a youth hostel in Copenhagen (14), Observatory hill at Gothenburg (15), Redscale in Gdansk (16), Norwegian Fjords at Flam (17), Lovely Hungarian teenagers at Budapest (18), Snow mountains at Tirol (19), Shakespeare and Company Bookstore at Paris (20), Bratislava Old Town (21), I was green-eyed in Vienna (22), Piazza San Marco at Venice (23), The Never-Ending Story in Lund (24), Buildings in Bergen (25), Auschwitz Concentration Camp (26), Phuket (27), Highland cattle at Lucerne (28), Lady fingers flowers at Sekinchan (29), The very rare clear blue sky in Edinburgh (30), Berlin (31), Hotpot in Hong Kong (32), The Rome Colosseo (33), London (34), Autumn in Frankfurt (35) and Putrajaya (36)

I must admit that everyone has a different perception of beauty. Nevertheless to me, every single picture created by the great LC-A+ is a masterpiece itself and it deserves to be equally under the limelight with all the others.

    Experiment: Chlorine!

    What's so great about analog photography? You never know what you will get in the end. Not every film let all of my photos look perfect, some fail, too. Maybe some of you experienced the same. After trying out several film soups and chemicals I finally discovered the easiest and quickest way: chlorine!

    Creativity means Connecting Things - A Splitzer for the LC-A 120

    I don’t like to split. A split means distance, separation, it means categorical divergence. We split hairs, we split incomes, we split up. So the first thing we have to know here is that a Splitzer – different from what you might have thought - is not at all a nasty boy splitting things up.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
