While it's been two days past since the so-called Valentine's Day, we simply couldn't resist sharing with everyone the sweet and awesome album snapped by our fellow lomographer sebastianerras!
Looking at the stunning purple-drenched photographs above, Paris-based lomographer sebastianerras had the perfect film partner in mind for his Hasselblad 500 C/M to shoot the engagement photos of his friends with. “I went for a couple of days to Wisconsin in the US to shoot the engagement of my friends,” he said in the description of his awesome album entitled ~ Dave’s Falls ~ Kodak EIR. “They showed me beforehand some images of the area and I knew I had to bring a roll of the Kodak EIR there. It definitely was a good decision.”
We couldn’t agree more, and we certainly dig the surreal feel lent by his choice of film, the clarity of photos, and the picture-perfect setting for the shoot!
The Awesome Albums series is exactly what it says on the tin — it’s a love letter of sorts from the Editors addressed to user-uploaded albums that had caught their eye and had inadvertently fallen in love with. Please understand though, they’re really just here to express their love and nothing more.
Thanksgiving is marked by families gathering to share a hearty meal and simply enjoy being around one another. More than a year ago, grazie had to spend the holiday on the Amtrak's Southwest Chief en route to Chicago. She might have been away from her own family on such an important day, but grazie was fortunate to find good company with her fellow travelers.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.

By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.
