Photo Friday: Journey


A few weeks ago, I achieved a long held ambition, and got myself a Lomo LC-A.

It's taken me quite a while to get used to it (and remember to manually change the focus, because pushing the button half-down doesn't work), but I've found that I've been having a lot of fun with it, and managed to get some really interesting shots with it (like this one of Steph's fabulous Prada shoes, which I don't think would have been quite the same taken with my 5700).

The shot this week is something I've wanted to take for a very long time, but had to wait for summer until the light was good enough that I could take the photo from the front of the top deck of the bus, and by the magic of perfect timing, this week's Photo Friday theme is Journey.

Excellent picture!

(Would have been more impressed if you'd photoshopped the Lomo effect though! ;-D )

Cracking photo.

As a still learning photographer, I'm not sure what all the fuss about Lomo is... but then I've not really researched it much.

What attracted you to it?

Nice photo, but a bit too 'middle of the road' for me.

I crack myself up, yes I do.

/laughs to himself.

I know that Lomos are all the rage and I understand the perspective they can create.

Your photo is wonderful.

Pictures of deserted streets are very good things.

Yay! LC-A's rock, hugely. If I had to throw away all of my cameras except one, the Lomo would be the one I kept. It's been my faithful photographic companion for nearly seven years now, and it's never let me down.

http://ninj4.org/photodump features a tonne of Lomo shots, if you're interested. No photoshop involved. :)

I'm really very happy for you, I promise you'll just love the LC-A more and more and more as time goes on. Beautiful thing that it is.
