Red and Green San Francisco

2

Yes, I know Christmas is over now, but it is one of my favorite times of the year and sometimes it takes a while to develop and have the photos ready! I have them now and I want to share some of those pictures I have with you. I really hope you’ll like them!

This year I had the chance to discover how Northern Californian’s spend their Christmas. I was surprised to see that just after Thanksgiving everything changed from turkeys to Santas, and from yellows and oranges to reds and greens. Gigantic Christmas trees grew in every living room, square and corner…

…a huge Ice Skating rink appeared in the middle of Union Square, and not only kids were enjoying it!

Snowmen here and there…

…even kittens and puppies in Macy’s Christmas Window! Funny to watch how people will stop anything they were doing to just stare at those little puppies and whispering an “oh!” every now and then! But that’s the Christmas spirit, isn’t it?

However, if you decide to spend now a morning walking through SF’s downtown, those reds and greens aren’t there anymore. Right now, the colors are PINK and RED! Happy Valentine’s!

And remember, there are some amazing new LomoCameras waiting for you! Let Lomography be your Valentine!

Will you be my Valentine?

    Although I live near San Francisco, it's been a few years since the last time I saw it during Christmas time, and I haven't ice skated in Union Square since I was a kid! Thanks for reminding me how beautiful it looks!

    The Ten Golden Rules of Lomography on typographic posters

    Every lomographer is aware of the Ten Golden Rules, the very essence of our “Don't Think, Just Shoot” philosophy. This set of guidelines tells us to throw away our inhibitions as photogarphers and have fun while taking pictures. Many of us take these rules by heart, but maybe not all of us take them as seriously as our community member pedrosattin, who has made these rules the focus of his personal project.
