Experiences from summer to winter, all caputured in this role of film!!
At the beginning of 2010, I return from Australia to Hong Kong with my LOMO LC-A+ and the Lomography X-pro Slide 100 35mm. When I departed the southern hemisphere, it was a boiling hot summer, but when I returned to my home in the northern hemisphere, it is already in the midst of winter drizzling with rain!
After travelling 7239km, this role of X-Pro slide film accompanied me through summer to winter and it captured all scenery magnificently during the trip. It did not merely show the “cooler” colours of of summer, but also unexpectedly showed the “warmer” colours which is greatly needed in winter!! It is truely a roll of film which can change significantly and truely brings out the deepest feeling from summer to winter. This is truely magnificent!!!
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
With only a large format camera, rolls of film and a tripod, a Chinese photographer biked his way from the coasts of Shandong all the way up to the mountains of Qinghai to photograph China's modern landscape.
