My Analogue Bucketlist

When I think of the finite time on our hands, I suddenly get this nagging feeling of doing something to make that time worthwhile.

I really believe in the idea of doing things your own way. It’s like adding your personal touch to your experiences in life that makes you sit still and contemplate about how much impact you’ve left in this world.

First of all, I’d like to write a book.
It doesn’t have to be a best seller or anything. It can even just be a memoir that recalls everything that I’ve gone through in this ride. But before I get to print copies of it, I’ll have to make sure that I wrote them down myself on a notebook, do the editing and proofreading all by myself. Sometimes, it’s difficult to be your own censor, editor and publisher but I imagine it being so fulfilling to read back on the hard times and just get kick and laugh from it.

I want to go on a long bike ride.
I feel that this will be such an eye opener for me. I plan to get a good bike, pack my bare necessities and just live on the open road for a period of time. I’ll leave my cares behind for a while and just greet the open road, feel the wind on my face and my hair, hear the rumbling of my engine and just see the different view of the world on two wheels. I can’t imagine anything that’s more liberating.

I want to travel…and get tattoos at the places I’ll visit.
Traveling is sure to be on many people’s bucketlists. Let’s face it, who doesn’t want to see the world and take home souvenirs? For some, those souvenirs can be in the form of shirts, shot glasses or even sand and stone but I reckon it’s more intimate to have artwork done on my skin by artists that are truly devoted to their craft. That way, I can always have a piece of London, New York, Japan and Thailand with me wherever I go.

I want to get back to the mountains.
Being on top of a mountain changes you. It makes you realize how small you really are in this great big world. I want to be able to climb mountains again and undergo the rites of passage once more. It’s a good place to measure your grit and understanding of the world going on around you.

I want to make at least one good shot using the many different analogue shooting styles.
Lomography really enriched my definition of aesthetics and art. Those sweet multiple exposures, redscale shots, long exposures, light painting, expose both sides – everything! I think it’s an art and that it would be nice to be able to do it like the masters here at the community. And besides, who wouldn’t want seeing nice-looking pictures hanging on the walls of their homes?

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    The Magical Diana F+

    "Magical" here means that every time I use the Diana F+, the results are always beyond both my expectations and imagination. That's why I always use it when I feel like doing something different. It has never failed me since day one; I even always bring this camera during my trips!

    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.
