In Full Bloom: My Preferred Photos of Flowers

1

Spring is coming! Even in my city, the vegetation is still dormant, but it will only be a few days more until the winter frost is over. I have here some of my photos of flowers, taken mostly last year, as I wait for the new bloom!

Let’s begin with some wild flowers. These photos were taken two years ago in Switzerland, using my Lomo LC-A that I took with me during my summer bicycle tour. The wild nature is protected and respected; these flowers were in a protected corner in the midst of cultivated fields.

Another photo taken in Switzerland (with my LC-A), not far from the wild flowers. Sunflowers are true friends of amateur photographers…they are never in backlight!

An old photo taken with a Praktica LB using a Fuji Velvia in the Swiss Alps. The fragility of the stems of these flowers invite to respect this natural wonder!

This are my preferred photos of flowers. It was taken on my balcony in strong backlight, with my Diana F+. The effect is dreamlike and slightly visionary.

Caorle is a beautiful seaside town of the Venetian lagoon. Its municipal administrators have decorated the lampposts with beautiful flower pots, that I took with my LC-A.

Meinau, the flower island, is located on Lake Constance in Germany, few kilometres from the Swiss border. With my SuperHeadz I got this beautiful set of flowers.

Lindau, always on Lake Constance. Flowers in front of the church. A very hot season, even the flowers have suffered the high temperatures!

Flowers in homage to those who have left this earth. A photo taken in Meiringen, Switzerland with my Lomo LC-A.

The last three photos were taken in Sicily, in the South of Italy, at the beginning of January 2013. In the north of Italy there were still snow and ice, but here I found flowers and green trees in the Temple Valley!

    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.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    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.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
