A day and a roll of black and white film. A short train ride to the buzzing metropolis of Liverpool to find what lomographical secrets it will yield. Ah a free day. How it reminds me of my younger days when every Saturday was mine to do with what I desired.
An advantage to be taken then a mere week ago when chance ordained that i be on a train to Liverpool, Diana in hand and film in bag.
No need to rush back for anything, a whole day to spend wandering the backstreet antique shops and boutiques which make up the extremities of Liverpool’s City centre. A small antique shop here, a broken down warehouse there, a boarded up house here. Anything can be found if you search hard enough through the alleys and by-ways from the train station. And then a walk to the bustling town centre full of lively street performers, large shops selling anything you could hope to buy, peculiarly shaped architecture and water features around every turn leading you inevitably to the Albert Dock. Ships, boats and museums all offer interesting ways to pass your time. And before you know it your time is gone, the light fades and you begin your walk back to the train station absently daydreaming about how your shots will turn out. Another week to wait until you’ll know for sure…oh well…
Summer is full of color so using black and white film might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the summer sun works out beautifully on black and white film. Like to give it a try? I've come across the best light at the train station during rush hour!
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
This article is dedicated to Serge Moulinier, a largely unknown French photographer who won one of the most important prizes in France with a book on Greek architecture. Strangely, few information can be found on the Internet about this great photographer whose work had also been published in an important essay written by the famous John Szarkowski, former Director of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Sonja started her analog adventures during her teenage years. She took her first film photographs when she was 13 and has been in love with the magic of the process since. Her idea of a perfect day involves developing film rolls while listening to jazz and having a cup of tea in between. In this interview, she recalls about her experience with her first Lomography camera, a Holga 120 CFN.
