Crazy Golf!

7

What is more fun than Crazy Golf? Not a lot really.. unless you are beaten by a 6yr old… YES, yes I was :(

CRAZY, MENTAL, BESERK, INSANE, WACKY, ZANY, WICKED, AMAZINGPOTY, SCATTY, FRANTIC? Crazy Golf – Is it really CRAAZY? Well it certainly drove me crazy! I was totally rubbish!!! Not only did I manage to hold everyone up behind us, constantly beaten by the course. I’d like to say that my aim was good, but it really wasn’t. When you are told it’s the “thought that counts” does this apply to crazy miniature golf? If it does then I certainly am a Winner! Alas I fear that this is not the case, taking a whopping 32 shots to get a small red pitted ball up a small hill over a gap in a ramp and down the other side into a fist sized hole. Who would have thought it be so difficult?

Crazy Golf is wash with bright colours and a luxurious green felt to represent the faux grass, complimented by the vibrant colours of the metal guiders that require skill, diplomacy, patience and careful meticulous planning to get a hole-in-one. I have none of the fore mentioned skills.

However, a 6yr old managed a hole-in-one on multiple occasions, putting my meticulous attempts to complete the course within nothing more than a respectable time for 12 holes, it was perfectly clear that miniature crazy golf is not my forte and is not a career opportunity! Thoroughly enjoyable, and at only £1GBP per person, well worth 20mins of time (leaving plenty of time to do other things like buying shoes GRIN. Not suitable for the competitive, sore losers or the impatient, (like me)

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    Nishe: Exploring Emotions Through Photography

    There's a certain air of sadness in Nishe's portraits. More often than not, the faces of her subjects are either partially or completely hidden. Sad, yes, but undeniably beautiful. Melancholia, as well as loss of innocence and the pains of growing up, are recurring themes in the photographer's body of work and she presents all these quite gracefully.

    'Aniki-Bòbò': A Tribute to Manoel De Oliveira

    This article is a tribute to the great Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who died last April 2. With an old Praktica loaded with a roll of black and white film, I captured so enthusiastically his city Oporto (Porto) with its famous Ribeira district, the most characteristic of the Lusitanian town. It was here that more than 70 years ago, Manoel De Oliveira created a timeless masterpiece: "Aniki-Bòbò"!

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

    He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.
