From Boring to Great

2011-07-09

Shall we take some fantastic pictures of such a boring day? Would that be a good idea?

It was a hard winter day and I had a horrible cold that made me sneeze to death. Boring was the only word to describe it, with Lain asleep at my feet and the Kleenex box nearly empty.

But then Lain and I looked at each other, and then to the SuperSampler on my shelf.

So I loaded my handbag with Kleenex, made Lain pretty and then we headed out.

Even if it was winter, people were enjoying the bleak sun while having a walk. This stressed Lain so much because he is so small and people tend to walk over him. So we went straight to the beach! I took him by his leash and he was the happiest dog in the world!

We ended up far, far away. We saw rocks, played in the sand, and Lain posed like a professional model.

The sun was going down and but it still gave out enough light for more picture-taking – things that under normal light I would neve take photos of, even.

We reached so far away that I could take this photo.

Tired under the sunset and with just one shot left in the cam, we started for home.

Every boring day can become a great day if you have a Lomo camera in your hands!

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
