Photo of the Day by libellula

1

Could've fooled me! At first glance that might have looked like a silhouette walking on the surface of the water, but with a bit of scrutiny you realize it's a cleverly composed black and white photograph. This is our Photo of the Day. Congratulations, libellula, that is one awesome photo!

Credits: libellula

The picture was taken one lovely afternoon in Toxovo, Russia, sometime in July, as our community member *libellula* was celebrating her birthday. Libellula used an Olympus XA2 loaded with Ilford Pan black-and-white film. This striking image can be found in the album *my birthday in b&w / july 2013,* where you’ll find even more of monochromatic great outdoor goodness.

    This photo of a silhouette standing by the beach may look clean and minimalist. But, the vivid color of the sun made it dramatic. Congratulations bebopbebop for having our Photo of the Day!

    Are You Searching For Super Spray? Don’t Be Fooled This April 1st!

    Oh no, we are terribly sorry! Alas, our amazing Lomography Super Photo Spray is only a pipe-dream invented by us cheeky chaps for April Fool’s Day! Whilst this Super Spray would be pretty awesome (if the photos didn’t take quite so long to develop!), there are still all kinds of ways you can enjoy analogue photography this very minute...
