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.
I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.
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!
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
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. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...
Seeing that we love to spread the cheer around here, we're giving you another chance to load up on our awesome film with today's Advent deal!

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?
Have you ever wondered why those nerdy camera constructors formulate complicated terms that baffle most normal citizens?
