Busch Gardens Williamsburg

2009-11-25 5

An extremely touristy amusement park, but has extremely interesting photo subjects!

I went to Virginia with my family over the summer, so obviously I went to Busch Gardens. I came with my LC-A+ and a couple rolls of film. Unfortunately I didn’t use it all since i dropped my camera out of a locker (but lomo NYC gave me a new one:D). Anyways, I loaded my camera with some expired Kodak Elitechrome and shot tons of pictures. I love taking my LC-A+ to amusement parks since the rides are such great subjects (that’s why I have a huge album of Six Flags pictures!). It was my first time using slide film and when I got the photos back, I was in awe.

Up to this day, these are still some of my favorite photos I’ve ever taken. I wish I took more photos of the architecture and buildings since the park is beautiful, but the roller coasters are even cooler.

    LomoLocations: The Duality of Osaka in Agfa Precisa CT

    The touristic appeal of Japan lies not only in its castles and flower storms, but also in the mix of unique practices and Occidental influences. The duality is evident in Tokyo and even in Osaka, which has gained more visitors over the years. A port city, Osaka has retained its 'merchant' status with a battery of retail shops amid an area of cultural interest.

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!

He has since ventured into other projects, and recently made a music video using the LomoKino and an Actionsampler.

    Against The Sun: Shapes in Contre-jour

    The brighter the sun, the larger the cast of the shadows. Contre-jour, however, does not rely on the shadow, but the figure itself. This photographic technique is used to create stark silhouettes of the subject with the help of direct natural light. Gladly, the Lomographic community has plenty of elegant images in contre-jour. We gathered our favorites.
