My Analogue Bucket List for 2012: A List of Must-Do's

My bucket list for 2012, the year I will change for the better. No longer letting home comforts stand in my way and searching for creative freedom.

2012 is my new beginning. Everything will change for the better this year, physically, emotionally, spiritually and of course creatively. This will be the year I stop holding back, the year I walk up to that interesting stranger in the street and ask if I can take a photo of them and their amazing Pug dog (If you knew me, you would know I’m obsessed with Pugs). Here is my list of Must-Do’s for 2012.

1. Live, laugh, love and document everything!

Documenting everything and anything, from friends and family to that piece of colourful trash in the street. The ups and the downs. The sun and the rain. Leaving no rock unturned.

2. Learn to use the LC-A, Smena 8m and Fed 5.

Perhaps one at a time?

3. More is the new less.

Process more and more film every month. Maybe this will be the year I learn to process my own films.

4. One photo – one stone.

Yes, it’s a new year and it’s going to be a new me. I’m talking weight loss. I will document every stone lost with a photo, this will not only be encouraging in my journey but will also allow me to get creative with each shot.

5. Car boots and thrift stores.

Simple. I must make an effort to go to car boot sales this summer and continue my search for vintage cameras. After all, a collector can never have too many right?

6. Enjoy the outdoors.

This, I may struggle with. I thrive on being tucked away safely by the fire with the kitties on my lap. But this year, that has to change. This time next year I will be eager and desperate to go on adventures in to the unknown. I will jump at the chance to go to that abandoned castle I’ve always dreamed of seeing. The woods will be no object in my search for the perfect photo.

You are more than welcome to join me on my creative journey. What an exciting year this will be.

Let’s make 2012 a year full of creativity and analogue love! If you liked this article, go ahead and check the rest of analogue bucket lists for 2012 submitted by the community! Of course, you can also submit your own inspiring analogue bucket list for 2012 and get more piggies!

    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.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    How Street Photography is Forcing My Eyes Open

    While I have been making attempts to do some street photography in the past two years, I must confess that I've let my introverted side take over countless times, resulting in half-baked (and sometimes half-hearted) snaps. However, once I started letting go of my inhibitions and just immerse myself in the task and experience, I found that street photography forcing my eyes open on so many things.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
