10th Lomowalk of 2012 - October


For October lomowalk I visited the ruins of Convento do Carmo. This is what’s left of the monastery after the 1755 earthquake. I wanted to take pictures of its beautiful arches for years but I didn’t make the right choices of cameras and films.

The Horizon Kompakt was loaded with a Fuji Velvia 50 that I used in the previous lomowalk, where it worked well. But for this darker place, I think a 100 ISO film would be better. Anyway, I enjoyed the experience of not cross processing this film and I can appreciate the light/shadow contrast of the pictures.

The Holga 120 N with the Lomography X-Pro 200 wasn’t the best combination either. I guess this camera needs higher ISO films when not in full sunlight… I’m still getting to know it.

At this time of the year, the days get shorter and I’m not a morning person. I always get out too late to photograph and that ruins many pictures… and besides of getting my self out of the house, I also have to convince people to come with me! This time I took mommy, daddy and a friend. Not happy with the results but the walks are nice and I’ve visited many new places because of these lomowalks, so it’s worth the effort to make at least once a month!
