Happy New Year !! Can you still say that in February?
I can’t believe February is in full swing, already! Where did the better part of two months go? … Well, I needed to take a break. I needed to take stock of the old year and throw myself into a shiny new one. And I needed to shop for school shoes and the box of tissues that went with their first outing. (All a big success I’m happy to say)
I hope you had a lovely break too. I’m excited about 2010, it feels promising, like there’s some magic on it’s way.
These ‘toy’ camera images are from the beautiful (n.b. daydream) holiday I am, apparently, still on. To me they seem truer somehow than a regular cameras. More like a memory of a moment, like a sensory postcard of summer.
the flaring light that has me squinting and scrambling for my sunnies,
the pops of colour in cossies and beach umbrellas,
the undulating hum of cicadas,
the chill in the first wave that takes your breath away
… it’s all there, captured perfectly on film, all in an old fashioned click.
I find Lomography, complete with happy accidents, incredibly inspiring. I can’t wait to try out one of these. And maybe even take the next Photography Adventure challenge run by this talented keen bean. Real magic!
