Twosday Tuesday: Purple Water Lilies

2

Here at Lomography, we always like looking at the creative and random photos submitted by our community members in our downtime. And, amusingly, we find that there are a lot of snapshots that bear a striking resemblance to one another – be it in the way they were composed or in idea – even though they were taken in different parts of the globe!

Our featured twin lomographs of the week have water lilies as their subjects. Both, too, were shot using the *Lomochrome Purple 400*, one in 120mm and the other in 35mm!

The photo above was shot by the United Kingdom’s *anafaro* in Lisbon, Portugal with the medium format camera Belair X 6-12.

Meanwhile, this snapshot was taken by *ihave2pillows* of Hong Kong with a Canon EOS Series camera.

Tune in next Tuesday for the next of twin photos! In the meantime, check out our Twosday Tuesday series in the Lomography magazine!

    Thank you! I am very intrigued by how different the colours and tone turned out. Was it the angle? Time of the day? Actual colours of the leaves? In anafero's artistic shot, the waterlily flowers remain the stars; whereas in mine, the leaves catch the eyes more.

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind. Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.

    Vintage Gallery: Aged Daguerreotypes

    Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre's invention made possible photography that is literally and figuratively one of a kind. For every shot fired, the photographer can only do one print. And though the marred by stains, a daguerreotype has the long-lived charm of a museum relic.
