18 months ago I received a small package in the post containing a Lomo LC-A+ camera amongst other things. I was honoured to work alongside some of the best "lomographers" in the world to make up "EURO TEAM 1". After a month of shooting with the camera, I managed to win my stage of the race and send it on to the next member of the team. 1 year after the end of the race, we nearly have all the results. Congratulations to everyone who took part in the race, the shots are amazing, but most of all, well done to Euro Team 1 and all of the winners.
When I was back at my parents house a week ago, they gave me this (Kodak Eastman No 4 Cartridge Kodak). It was given to them (amongst other cameras) to sell by a friend whose husband was a photographer before he died. Also in the selection of equipment was a hasselblad. My parents are not sure where this is, but they are certain they never managed to sell it. Perhaps they will find it one day. I am hopeful.
I woke up this morning ill, so am off work for the day. While off, I plan to spend the day wisely by watching the entire 'Bourne' trilogy and creating new walls on my lomohome. This wall is made of photos I took a year ago along the seafront in Felixstowe, Suffolk. Feel free to take a look.
This morning Jem and I went for a walk around the meadow by her house. I took a few photos of some things we saw on our travels. This started off with a few scattered body parts from a half eaten vermin left on Jems doorstep. Obviously due to the temperature, we saw a lot of frost. This was glistening in the sun on the screens of cars we passed and on the grass and other plants, flowers, and weeds we saw. We were then greeted rather warmly by a dog who was boisterously running back and forth between his owner and us.
Unfortunately our walk did not last long as I had to get to work and Jem to uni.
On 30th July 2010 I my photo was awarded "photo of the day" on lomography.com.
I took a screen grab of this, however forgot to do anything with it; so here I am doing something with it. It's not the highest achievement in the world, but I am pleased Lomographic Society International liked it enough to make it "photo of the day".
