Parallels & Juxtaposition

9

I live in a place of the world where you can't miss the change of the seasons. But even in the placidity of snow, winter can look different. Take a look at the changing times around my town in these analogue photos and note the parallelism.

The first one is from February which means we had had snow for some 3 months.

The second one is an evening of snow. The ground was clean 12 hours prior to taking the photo.

I seem to be fascinated with train tracks. The first one is an unsupervised crossing, and the second one is from a train station where a whole piece of the fence is missing so you can just run in there freely and snap away to your hearts content.

Again on the tracks. The second one here is from the same night as the top first one. I’ve never seen such a large amount of snow come down so quick.

Olso vs. my hometown Luleå, also Winter vs. Summer. All the daylight vs. barely any daylight. Different kinds of blue. I like them both.

Old tire vs. new tire

Spring vs. winter. My cat coming to say hi vs. my cat going off on a daily stroll of his.

Have you discovered some interesting parallels in all of your pictures? Maybe you have a lot of juxtaposition going on in your pictures? Out of these parallels, which one is your favourite? I think it’s my cat Gizmo but I might be biased. :)

    Painting Delights: Going Wild with the Pixelstick

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind. Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!

    The Go! Team in Dublin: No Flash Photography Please

    I have to admit that I’ve never liked using flash in public places. In some situations it can be distracting. Like concerts, for example. Can you imagine a live music show where people decide all of a sudden to use it at the same time?

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
