Waterways, by Lomo

The Lomo’s take on an earlier Canon AT-1 shot of the waterways at Wicken Fen.

What a fabulously different style! Love it. 🙂

Live and Learn

I was gutted about this shot. I think it would have been a corker.
It was dark in the cafe so the Lubitel was resting on a table. I’d set everything up, but released the shutter accidentally whilst trying to prime it.
I wasn’t sure if I had or not, so I risked it and took it again.
The moral of the story is, of course, that cafes don’t move, but people do…
So I have posted this as a Lomo lesson. If you think you’ve exposed it… you probably have! 🙂

Jem at Wicken Fen

Another shot duplicated from the Canon AT-1, but this one with the Lomo Lubitel 2.

I have to say, in spite of the apparent obsession with film cameras just now, if I had to have only 2, they’d be the Canon and the Lomo. Two incredibly different cameras and incredibly different styles. Perfect.

Double-Exposed Norwich


This is my very first double-exposure… which I guess is either an “Ooooh!” or a “Doh!”

It is a photograph of the interior of my favourite Norwich coffee house, the appropriately named “House”, which features fabulous 70s formica-topped tables, lovely comfy sofas, gorgeous lighting (which you can see through the shot) and home-made cakes (which you can’t).

Superimposed is Norwich’s version of the ‘Occupy’ movement – rather subtle and understated, but heart-felt and stoic nonetheless.

Me and my Lubitel

I don’t know if there’s a term for it, but I have long noticed the tendency to photograph oneself with one’s camera. Until I received my ancient Lomo in the post, I didn’t really get it.

I have since termed this tendency “Camera Porn” 😉

This is the third ever shot taken with my Lubitel 2. I’m still trying to work it out, which is plain to see I suspect.
