A Poem - Picture This!

17

You can live without many things…

I guess it’d be easy to bear
if I ran out of toilet paper.
There’s a store around the block
That’s open round the clock.

I’d definitely won’t worry
if I ran out of shirts to wear.
I would not mind being bare,
if I ran out of underwear.

And if I ran out of shampoo
in the middle of a bath,
I can easily handle all that
even if I ran out of deodorant.

It’s perfectly fine if I ran out of ink
I have lots of pencils to write with.
I will not fear, nor get angry,
if my computer ran out of memory.

It’s no big deal if I ran out of beer,
I’d take the vodka, I don’t care.
And if I ran out of sense of style,
I can always get by with a smile.

It’d be an advantage if I ran out of alibis
I am not really good at telling lies.
I’d panic for a while if I ran out of cash
But I can always sell some of my lomographs.

And if I ran out of words to say,
It’s probably not my best day.
But my life will certainly ache,
if I ran out of pictures to take.

    What should I say, What should I tell,
    The pictures are all pretty as hell,
    I can not really pick the best,
    that would really disrespect the rest,

    #1 reminds me of a gang,
    the colors in it are Big Bang,

    The second turns out supercool,
    to go there would be beautiful,

    # 3 - its supergreen -
    if you don´t like it - you are mean

    Pic 4 is just a perfect piece
    my eyes say: one more please

    5 is sex and six is nice
    if I had to choose I need a dice

    7 screams for holiday
    I wish I would be on my way

    8 - double expo - double fun
    the girl, the house the tree the sun,
    Diana makes it all complete
    Lomo is just all you need!

    Lomo LC-A 120: Quirky Doors

    In photography, we notice the surface first. The color and texture of things help us imagine what’s beneath. Doors, part of a building’s skin, have this appeal. They suggest how long a structure has been around and what sort of fellows live inside. They are details that fascinate Lomographers, judging from the many LC-A 120 snaps of intriguing entrances.

And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
