Spring is coming, although, it might not be so visible right now. When I look out of my window, there is still bit of snow on roofs and roads, so I decided to bring Spring closer to me by myself.
Winter should be already over (at least I want it that way) and I know a little trick how to bring spring and its “green-ness” closer to you and your working desk.
So want do you need?
1. some film canisters (like those on pictures – I used them because they allow a bit more light to get inside)
2. cress seeds
3. cotton wool or napkin
5. and good memory (to water the seeds every day).
Fold the napkin or cotton wool carefully to fit inside the canister (it should be a bit thicker (around 2 cm)) and then put it inside the film canister. Water it generously, but do not allow to go there more water then the cotton wool or napkin are able to soak.
Then spread some seeds (15-20 of them) on the wet cotton and put your film canisters on warmer place with good light.
Now, all you need to do is to wait and water your seeds carefully every day. You will see the results of your green fingers very soon. Mine were showing signs of life after less then 12 hours.
Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!
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.
The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
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.
