    Lomographic Milestones: It All Started 17 Years Ago

    We've had 20 years of Lomography, and I've been a part of the movement for almost 17 years. But, I said "almost" because I had long breaks in between. Anyway, I think it's time to look back at those old pictures from the beginning. I have to admit I never made an effort to scan all my old pictures, but there are still a few of them. I think it's worth it to have a look at them.

    Out & Proud: The Man with The Child in His Eyes

    For LGBT month, it seemed important to me to talk about the love of my life through my photos. He is the one who inspires me the most, the one I never miss when it comes to taking pictures. His love and strength makes him my muse. Even if life has not always been kind to us (and especially lately), it will always be there for me and I'll always be there for him.

    In Full Bloom: Not Quite Yet

    It's April and yesterday it was still snowing here. Yes, really. I don't even live on the North Pole. It was snowing here, in Slovenia, in the middle of Europe, in times when spring should already be in full bloom.

    Hastings Natural Reserve on 35mm Film

    As a video journalist for University of California I tend to travel all over the state visiting interesting people who are doing innovative research. I always have my Canon 5D Mark iii on hand and my field recorder to do my interviews. Recently, I decided to also bring along my Nikon FG-20 and expired 35mm film that I bought through the Lomography Shop. So far, the outcome has been really interesting and hopefully this will be one of many future posts about my travels through the golden state.

  • A Fun Faux-MX Experience

    A Fun Faux-MX Experience

    So I called this Faux-MX because the double-layer synonymous with MX is what you think of when laying eyes upon the resulting image. Though the image in question isn't born within an analogue camera's womb, I was inspired by the unconventional union of two analogue-terrific images!

    When you're thinking of engaging in a photo-project, you're probably thinking something short-term like going out and photographing a stranger's closeup or spending one fine evening light-painting. How about a never ending project? After the jump, discover how re-photographing the same object and location can yield very different results and the hobby spun out of it.

    One with Nature: Monasterio de Piedra

    As I said in the first part, lately, my breaks tend to be accompanied by nature and far from big cities. It's what I have all day. In this second part, we go further to the North, specifically, to the Monasterio de Piedra in Nuévalos, a small town in the province of Zaragoza (Spain).

    The Botanic Garden in Leuven

    I have been living in Leuven, Belgium, for close to 5 years now and the Botanic Garden has been one of my favorite spots along the years. Every season is different. Every month there's something new. It's a true living space. And it's a sweet quiet place to relax, making me forget that I actually live in a busy and lively Belgian city.

    A Photogenic Wonder: Visiting Pegan in Burma

    I arrived at the ancient city of Pegan in Burma (Myanmar) from Mandalay. My overloaded bus pulled up a dusty unsealed road and stopped outside a ramshackle hotel. It was hard to believe that Pegan was one of the premier tourist sights in South East Asia.

    My 11th Golden Rule: Keep Your Head Up

    Flooding in the Prairies

    Being in the flat prairies in the middle of Canada, and having a large amount of snow in winter. Flooding is a more than likely occurrence. Living on a farm with cows makes this a challenging time to be a farmer, but with great opportunities to take great photo's. I carry my Nikon FM SLR around all the time while out doing chores and just walking the land.

    Not as Easy as a Walk in the Park or is it?

    If you are like me, your favorite date spot usually has something to do with a place which is great for taking photos. On our first date I said to this boy of mine that he'll need to get used to my constant stopping for photos and that he did. We both like walking and love going adventuring in new places so walks in the park are ideal, especially when the weather is nice.

    My Most Embarrassing Christmas Story

    How many people know this story, you get stuck in traffic, or take a wrong turn meaning that you get to the airport after check in has closed. The people in their perfect little uniforms tell you you can't get on the flight. You protest because the plane is still sitting there, its a domestic flight and they haven't even started boarding yet.
