It’s starting to get chilly this time of year and we all feel it in the cool breeze. To add to that chill factor, we bring you these bluer than blue photographs from the community!
Cold is the name of the game this season and there’s no other color to make you feel the chill than the color blue! The relaxing color paints the skies and seas and links them to our memories of the cooler breeze and colder nights. Reading or hearing the world blue does not always mean sad. Just look at these wonderful photos from the community that are popping with blue tones!
Blue skies, painting-like effects and the classic vignettes give out the extra treatment to these cool and composed photographs. They just make you want to grab a sweater and go feel the cool atmosphere outside!
The lovely effects of these photos are achieved with the help of the cute and compact little sister of the Diana F+, the Diana Mini! Originally coming with its own sky blue color for the body, the Diana Mini offers the features that we have loved on the full-sized Diana F+. Various features like the multiple exposure, square shots and half frames make the Diana Mini a big contender in any Lomographer’s heart.
The Diana Mini is the ultra-compact, petite version of the Diana F+. This camera takes soft-focused, lo-fi images in 35mm and allows you to change between half-format and square shots with a flick of a switch. Get your own Diana Mini now!

Ernest Cole’s photographic career may have been short-lived but it prolific. Almost 50 years after they were taken, Cole’s photographs still speak volumes and prove to be more than relevant in these modern times.
December brings with it Winter, the end of the year and the last chances to get those photographs taken that you wanted to do the rest of the year. I decided to kick off December with a slew of photography adventures and a few camera purchases.

What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
Every year I get the winter blues. I start imagining the feel of the sunrays, ice cold beer after a long summer day, and the endless hours spent on the beach. I have captured moments, memories, and dreams this year, which is my favorite thing to do. This is a short version and visual diary of my year 2014.
