To me, a bucket list is a list of things you want to do before you “kick the bucket” as it were. Here are some things I want to achieve in 2013, if not, before I die!
I think that travel to new places always makes my Lomographs a bit better. Like when I am seeing things for the first time, then I really actually SEE them. This year I want to go to new places and see new things and take great Lomographs. Last year was a good one for this as I toured around Bulgaria (see locations articles) and even started to venture out around the UK a bit more. I hope to do this again in 2013, even if it is just to neighbouring cities, to see things for the very first time.
Also this year, as I have just received my Belair CitySlicker Edition, I really hope I can learn to use it to its full potential and get some great shots like I have seen in the community taken on it. It is such an exciting camera for Lomography that I just can’t wait to get started with it!
I also have big plans this year regarding my #project52 (see other article), which is now well underway and at the time of writing this article I am just ending week 1 and loading up a film for week 2 of this. I came up with this project to allow me the opportunity to use ALL of my huge camera collection this year and this is something I am really keen to complete. I certainly hope that before I kick the bucket some of my more neglected cameras get to see the light of day!

Mitchell Wojcik is based in Brooklyn, New York. He likes "Ghostbusters, and to make whatever comes to mind and document my life as I go." He used to put a lot of thought into things, but now prefers to have fun and not think about it at all. Hmm, sounds like a perfect match for the Lomo'Instant Automat Glass!
It’s that time of the year when you can almost hear the holiday knocking on your door. Although, holidays are usually meant for taking a break from your 9 to 5 type of a job, there is no reason why you shouldn’t allow yourself a healthy amount of laziness and still do some fun, creative things...

With my visit to the polar station of Ny Ålesund I already got a taste for the far north. But eventually I wanted to get a piece of the real thing. So I went on a journey straight to the North Pole, 90° latitude and a point, where every compass goes cuckoo crazy. It was remarkable.
