Mom and Me: Memories From My Childhood

1

I really really love digging up old photos. I go through my family albums quite often. Old photos are a little reminder of the good times and awesome memories we all shared.

Meet my mom.

Isn’t this a gorgeous photo? It was taken in the seventies when she was just out of high school. I sometimes stare at it and just can’t understand this girl on the photo is actually my mother. And yes, everybody in our family has a lot of hair.

Me and my mom actually don’t have that many photos together from my childhood. That’s mainly because she wasn’t that much into posing for photos and I was actually quite a running and climbing child. I could entertain myself for hours and I usually climbed everything that was in my way.

This is me, climbing some random wall on a croatian seaside:

My mom is an awesome mom. What I most appreciate about her is that she let me have freedom as a child. She let me climb every wall. She didn’t like it and she always kept an eye on me. I could always see her watching me from the corner of her eye. But she never smothered me with her love, she let me be a free spirit. I learned from my mistakes, I fell so many times but I always picked myself up. I had so many bruises you wouldn’t believe, but that’s due to the fact my friends were mainly boys. But all of that was a lesson in life – you just have to pick yourself up. It wasn’t the only thing she taught me. After all she’s a teacher — she always has something to say. But she also also has a kind soul, she’s so full of empathy and kind words. She’s truly a great person.

    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.

    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!

    My Year in Analogue: Something New, Something Old

    Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits.

Well, let's see...

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
