My Analogue Bucket List for 2012: Places to Visit and Things to Try

4

2012 is the year of the Lomograph! And to celebrate here are my top seven places to visit this coming year.

First of all, seven feels like a great number to plan those Lomo adventures. It’s just enough to keep us budding Lomographers happy, but not too much that it’s going to break the bank.

1. Machu Picchu
One of mankind’s lost treasures since 1911. This iconic sight is a must for any Lomographer who wants to capture antiquity, adventure and mystery in what could be the picture of a lifetime.

Machu Picchu

2. Easter Island
Claimed to be the most remote inhabited Island in the world, Easter Island is home to the incredible moai statues. Amazing wildlife, scenery and legends fill this environment with awe, making it a top choice on the Lomo Bucket List.

Easter Island

Underwater
We know more about the stars and space than we do about the oceans. Being underwater is like being in another world, you are the explorer, time is irrelevant (until the oxygen runs out).

Underwater

Lights
Long-exposure light shots are something of beauty, as if Gandalf himself has cast his magic over the lens of our cameras. All you need is a strong light source/sparklers/glow sticks, some friends and a bit of patience.

Lights

Surf
Surfing is one of the most exhilarating experiences anyone can have! To catch a wave on film would be an unmistakable classic, that would boost anyones Lomography collection.

Surf

Snow
Snow creates a wondrous fairytale wherever it falls, with clear white sheets, curious foot prints and snowman waiting around every corner, how could any Bucket List be complete without it?!

Snow

Central Park
A favourite park by many, this green spectacular in the middle of Manhattan is an oasis, with the Strawberry Fields, the Betheseda Fountain and the Belvedere Castle to name but a few, there are endless picture possibilities to entice all Lomographers, making it a brilliant last choice for the Bucket List.

Central Park

    thanks for choosing 2 of my pics of Easter Island :) And I can confirm you that's it's a place worth to discover! :) Machu Pichu as well, went there back in 2003 (wasn't a lomographer then...) and it's still one of my greatest travel experiences... Underwater is a fascinating place to be as well, diving is always like a dream every time (read my article about the diving sensations www.lomography.com/magazine/lifestyle/2010/07/02/diving-dee…) and I can only agree to the rest (even if I never went to central park but would really like to discover NYC! :)
    Hope you can achieve all this in 2012!! :)

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    Creative Vision, Personified:The Community's Most Creative Lomographers

    As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.

    Two years ago I swore to myself, I'll be coming back soon!" This October my chance finally came and I flew for the second time to New York City to visit my dear colleagues in the Lomography Gallery Store New York. What I didn’t see coming, though, is the opportunity to test a new secret film during my trip.
