Bielefeld: The Siegfriedplatz

2010-07-31 2

There’s this little place that draws me in every time I go out of the house. Everybody in Bielefeld knows it: the “Siggi”. It’s a good place for everybody to hang around, meet friends, have a drink, and even discover a great analogue find!

The Sigfriedplatz in Bielefeld is a well-known meeting point and everybody calls it just the “Siggi”.
As soon as the sun comes out, the people leave their houses to meet there and hang around in different groups: families and students alike. Then the yellow railway wagon and the Bürgerhaus open their bars to sell drinks to the people after a few hours. Children are running around, parents sitting on their blankets taking out their picnic stuff, friends meet together, couples are kissing, dogs running around, and everybody takes advantage of the sun.

More information about Siegfriedplatz in German

Twice a week the market takes place on the Siggi. Fresh fruits and vegetables are offered. Additionally, from March to October, on every last Saturday of the month there is a beautiful flea market

There are only private old things sold, and it’s fun to rummage around. But it can be really crowded!

The Sigfriedplatz can be reached with the Tram, line 4, and every time I am in Bielefeld, I pass there. I already did some nice shoots then! Therefore, the uploaded pictures are a mix between different cameras (Diana and Diana mini), seasons, films and experiments.

    11 Beloved Toy Cameras

    For some, it marked their first foray into the wonderful world of analog photography. Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is. Whatever the case may be, toy cameras will always hold a special place in the hearts (and shelves) of analog photographers everywhere, quirks and all.

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
