Sunsets in Southampton's Suburbia

4

Perfect sunsets don't always have to be over the ocean. Southampton has some of the best I have ever seen...

My mother moved to Southampton around five years ago in a house on top of a hill.

We soon realized that as the front of the house faces west, we were lucky enough to have a spectacular sunset nearly every evening.

A few years later I discovered (through eBay) my first Lomo camera which lead me to Lomography.com and an obsession with lomography. I bought several cameras both new and used and then came across the Recesky TLR, after building it from a kit, I ran a few rolls of slide through, including one roll of our Southampton sunsets and the results just blew me away…

I love the colors the cross processed Kodak Professional e100s Ekatachrome gave me and now everytime I visit, I look forward to capturing something amazing.

Oh and I already mentioned that it’s on top of a hill didn’t I?

    As a local I can honestly say, So'ton isn't always the first place that springs to mind when thinking of beauty but you've definitely brought out some right here. Gorgeous sunsets - nice work!

    Photo Stories: Children of the Desert by eleonorepairet

    My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    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.
