Inspired by the cherry blossoms at Landesmuseum Hannover I made doubles
It was not a bright day with sunshine, but the cherry blossom trees at Landesmuseum Hannover caught my attention. As I had to change films I loaded an expired Kodak Elitechrome EB2 in my LC-A and I decided to shoot an entire layer only with these cherry blossoms, shot after shot, more and more. And I must say that shooting that fast and advancing is hard work! So I rewinded the film, left it inside the camera and went on shooting randomly.
The results are more or less blossomy. It is not the colour, but the structure I gained. I will try it with other things, too, as I like the effect, the idea that all shots on that film have something in common.
One lomographer bathes the fantastical world of Harry Potter and the dreamy streets of Osaka lined with cherry blossom trees in lush turquoise and amber tones, making these unique scenes look just a little more magical!
Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.

At the end of October last year, René Burri, a great master of photography of the last century, passed away. As a tribute to him, I would like to show you some photos that I took last month at EXPO 2015 in Milan, which was inspired by his series featuring the world's fairs held in Osaka, Okinawa, and Montreal. Take a look!

This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat. His pictures are characterized by great poetic touch, strong social sensitivity, and utmost respect for people and places. Inspired by a book which contains Boubat's photos taken in the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, I pay homage by showcasing some of my photos taken within the same geographic area.
Made in Heights is at it again. In May 2015, Alexei Saba Mohajerjasbi and Kelsey Bulkin released their album "Without My Enemy What Would I Do." This album tests the boundaries of genre by pulling from all forms of music to create a paradigm shift of preconceived notions.
