My Dog Izzie

Three years ago, my mom brought home a little brown puppy. Nowadays, Izzie is just as crazy as the day we got her.

My mother bought Izzie when she was 6 weeks old through a family that lived near us. She was part of the mother’s last litter, as she was getting older and her owners were too busy to breed her anymore. Izzie is a Boykin Spaniel, a hunting dog originally bred in South Carolina to be small enough to fit in a boat with a hunter hunting for waterfowl.

As a hunting dog, she seems to have boundless energy when she wants to play, although she spends most of the day napping inside. My mother has been training Izzie to run agility courses for over a year now, so she is light on her feet and can jump higher than you can believe. She doesn’t always get her commands right, or listen to us all the time, but she is a sweet dog and I love her very much. She is afraid of lightning, loves chicken, and is happiest chasing after a ball in my parents’ backyard.

She is often a subject of my photos because I am constantly in awe of her seemingly endless amount of energy. Here are some pictures taken from 2009 – 2011 that might help explain to you why I love this dog so much.

Photos taken with: Lomography SuperSampler, Holga 120FN, Holga 135TIM, Yashica Mat 124G, Kodak Retina IIc, Lomography Fisheye No. 2, and Polaroid OneStep Closeup

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!

    My brother had a photo exhibition last year at the North Sea Jazz Festival and got two tickets. So just like the old days with our father, we went to the Ahoy Rotterdam for an evening of jazz and other music. I was armed with an analogue SLR camera, telephoto lens, and sensitive film!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    “I would like to buy a jukebox.” I've said this many times, so 4 years ago my ex-girlfriend went to my home with a little package. "It's a present for you," she said. I opened it and found a 12" vinyl disc, the single "Woman" by Wolfmother. It was wonderful. "If you will finally buy a jukebox, you shouldn't miss playing this song," she said.
