People With ... Books!

52

If you are a curious Lomographer, (we are sure that you are), you will most likely sneak upon family members and friends while the are... reading! But what are they reading? Are they even reading or are they just looking at the pictures? Are they comfortably at home in the living room sofa or in the library? Do they "shhhhhhhh" you away or smile for your picture? But don't limit your imagination to others, what about you? Do you read? In which position?

But don’t limit your imagination to others, what about you? Do you read? In which position?

For this special rumble we are looking for your best shots with books! Need more ideas? How about:

  • libraries
  • people looking inspired
  • maybe an animal reading? (my dog does!)
  • people drinking tea or coffee with a book

Details:

  • 10 picture upload limit
  • 3 winners of 10 piggies
  • By submitting to this rumble you allow Lomography to use your images for promotional purposes

    strangelilgirl ·

    @LSI: at the bottom it says "Your submitted images" and shows my ten, and below that it says "Upload limit exceeded"...but my images still are not showing up...they aren't included in the 21 submitted images...but it won't let me submit anymore...

    @Larslau: .....

  27. grenoouille
    grenoouille ·

    I had 5 shots missing too... just uploaded one of them again... obviously it is working fine now and obviously it has nothing to do with the size of our pics...
    I suppose we have to be patient... no doubt all submissions will be taken into account and maybe the deadline will be extended...
    Enjoy what remains from your weekend! Monday will come (too) soon...

  28. paper_doll
    paper_doll ·

    @Larslau: the pictures that appear in the "Images submitted by users" (23 so far) were submitted now. for example, i submitted yesterday and my shots don't appear. so we're not stupid, there is some kind of problem, get it? "geez..."

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

    Bite-Size Fiction: Spectre

    Ever since she started working late hours Tammy had inevitably acquired the habit of staying up into the wee hours of the night, doing nothing but catch up on her favorite websites, eat, and watch television. When nothing good’s on TV or in the Internet, however, she liked to hang out at her room’s balcony, sneakily smoking a cigarette or two while musing about all sorts of things.
