Introducing the Beloved Ones

2010-02-13 19

This is a little tribute to the ones we love most.

You know who… that one that supports you most. That person that waits for you to scan the images and critizises the right and the wrong ones. That who stands still ‘til you have that perfect picture. That one who understand you need time for this. That one that is more than a muse. That one who bought you your first camera and that has been supporting you since then. In my case, it’s vasvas. She bought me the first Supersampler.

The first picture (it’s a pity I lost the negative) I took with it was of her, and it’s been like that since then. I even ask her to marry me after a wonderful trip lomo session to Brussels. Maybe you already know vasvas as she is in half of the pictures I shoot. I owe her many apologies and also this post.

I hope you love your beloved one as much as I do love vasvas. Because she is one of the reasons I’m in this Lomoworld. Because this is a way to show the things, the places and the people I love. That is how I understand Lomography. The perfect way to show your own world.

Happy Valentine’s everybody!

    So warm touching text. Yes, sometime we all need to sit back and light a ciggerette, and to think about our beloved ones, not only on this special day. I believe that all I get is not because i am so lucky or so smart or so capable or whatever, but becaues largly the contributs, support or even sacrifice from my beloved ones.... I love you all
