Solo Photowalk Routes: Running Up Anski Vrh

I admit it. I'm an introvert. But that doesn't mean I don't like company or that I don't like to socialize. It just means that I cherish my alone time.

There are many ways I spend my alone time. People sometimes ask me if I don’t get bored with all this alone time and I tell them “no, because only boring people get bored”.

Just kidding, I don’t say anything — I’m an introvert and I keep things like that to myself. And things like that tend to fill my mind a lot, to the limit where I feel like I’m gonna explode. That’s the time a need a solo walk and climb that hill I can see so clearly through my window.

There were times I didn’t like to climb hills and mountains so much. Well, I hated it. But that was because I was an athlete and I got enough of running every day and I really didn’t need anything more. But when I stopped being an athlete, I needed something else to clear my mind. And I started climbing hills.

I can’t really say it’s my favourite thing in the world or that I enjoy it so much I wouldn’t do anything else, but it’s my ultimate meditation. When I’m climbing that hill, I go through so many stuff in my head. I analyze all my problems, I think about things people said and made and how everything made me feel. It’s just woods, music in my ears and my thoughts.

I go to this local hill almost every day. It’s a small one, just steep enough for my daily needs. It’s called Anski Vrh, which literally means Ann’s Top. There’s this beautiful path leading to the top, passing beautiful trees with clear air around. And at the top there is a bench and this great view. It’s not spectacular but it’s my view. I wouldn’t trade it for anything else.

Sometimes I would just sit on the bench and watch the view. Sometimes some other people would join me and we’ll talk at the top. It’s just nice to see how people are always so happy at the top. I guess it’s because you have this feeling you really accomplished something. Mens sana in corpore sano. That’s my philosophy and the one I would recommend to everyone. There’s nothing like a little solo walk up the hill!

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

    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?

    Creativity means Connecting Things - A Splitzer for the LC-A 120

    I don’t like to split. A split means distance, separation, it means categorical divergence. We split hairs, we split incomes, we split up. So the first thing we have to know here is that a Splitzer – different from what you might have thought - is not at all a nasty boy splitting things up.

    Tipster: Three Easy Distressed Masks for the Lomo'Instant

    I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

    Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan who wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and photograph them. He never became a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years after, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
