“The future is so bright that I have got to wear shades” – Timbuk 3, The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades

With crisis upon crisis, some might say the future looks dark and bleak. But no matter what pundits would say, the future is bright and ripe for the picking and a little optimism and a cool pair of glasses (and a bit of Lomography) are all that we need to ride out our woes. So smile and show us your funkiest and most chic shades!

    I was given a roll of LomoChrome Purple 120 by a friend who was keen for me to try it out since he didn't have a medium format camera. I really didn't expect the results I got when I took it out for a test run on a bright winter's day in London.

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
