This Is My Favorite, What's Yours?

Whenever I visit a Lomo gallery, I always ask the same question. "Which photo is the public's favorite?" Now, it's time to answer that question.

Whenever I visit my friend’s gallery, I wonder which, among the 1000 or so photos on display, is my favorite. What difficult choice! Especially when I’m going crazy, giving compliments without knowing which single picture I like most from the collection.

It’s the same thing with the photos I have uploaded. I don’t know what I like best! It changes everyday!

This time, for example, my favorite photo is:

I have a question, Lomofriends, what is yours?

Why? As this photo was able to truly bring my idea to life. I had an idea one day to dress up my shadow, make my shadow into a person. That idea came to me randomly one day at the bus stop while I was waiting for the bus and just looking at my shadow.

My kitchen window. It’s my spot for my “morning philosophy” – to jump or not to jump. But only for now.

This photo happened in a very typical way for me. I had pulled into the Pearl Ridge Mall and was walking from the car to the book store entrance. I had my LOMO LC-A+ camera in my hands and was looking at the cars for anything interesting. Then I noticed that there was this young teenaged girl standing in front of the glass window. She had a huge puffy sleeveless jacket on that was red. Her pants where a weird bright purple and had been tucked into some day-glow neon Nike hightops. She was a fashion disaster and I told my friend with me, “I NEED to take that kid’s photo!”

It’s one of my favorites because it’s the first thing I did with my Diana Mini. It was like my first time in Sant Jordi in Barcelona where the colors are amazing!

I took this picture on a boatride in the canals of Amsterdam. I love all the components of it. I feel like it has a life of its own – and for me this is art. Also, my son in the picture and my wife, the two people I love most, are in it.

This one is of Kending, which is the southern tip of Taiwan. I took it a few months ago when I came back to this beautiful island where I lived for 11 years. It was more than a year since I saw the sea. It’s my favorite photo because I love the colors and light, like I’m transmitting peace and clarity.

Here is my best photo. I love it because my best friends as well as the lovely sun and clouds are in the same freaky square!

I really do not I have a favorite photo, but I think this was the first that came out as I wanted. It was taken inside the castle Pambre. I had a great time that morning because my mother and I were loaded with cameras to record everything.

This is a picture I took in Madrid, in Gran Vía, with tick-tack technique. I saw this girl from afar and I liked her style, so I prepared for the shot and WHAM!

Thank you all!

There are many more Lomofriends who have answered so there will be a Part 2!

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
