There's nothing more inviting than a summer swim in the lake.
When the weather becomes unbearable in the summer people from Bucharest tend to migrate to wetter, more leisure encouraging places. Snagov is one of these hot-spots – a mix of rich and poor, carefully divided into villas, resorts and the humble folk’s grill place along with the common after lunch lake swim or boat ride.
You can’t say it offers much and it does resemble a place stuck in time, a bit more dirty then you would expect it too, but the crowd goes nuts over it! It’s good old fun in the sun and all that you could ask for as the summer begins.
If you visit London in the next few weeks,you might bump into a Paddington Bear sculpture more than once. Don't be alarmed, he's not following you around. There are hundreds of Paddington Bear sculptures dotted around the city in celebration of the launch of a new film. We captured a few using the glorious Petzval lens. Take a look here.
There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.
Other than the exciting range of products, there’s more to see in the Lomography Embassy Store Vienna. There is also a new exhibit of works from various photographers around the world. A new exhibit by the artist Ona B., will be kicked off with an opening party on the 9th of December.
Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window. He is the master of the ordinary moments, capturing the essence of daily life in a series of free and random sequence of photos where nothing important happens! And as I've written there I wanted to take a similar experiment with color film, which would change the perception of the environment where people live. Read more after the jump!
