Welcome to 365 Days of Lomography!

Throughout this project I will be shooting with a variety of Lomography cameras to explore how they render the world in their own unique ways, as well as some tips and tricks I learn along the way.

Starting things off we have an old favorite camera of mine the LC-A. Its a small simple camera with fewer options than an In-N-Out menu. You’ve got 4 focus settings, the film speed settings and THATS IT. Despite all that, its a fantastic little camera that takes really amazing images and gets out of the way to let you capture what you’re seeing. Often known as the “shoot form the hip camera” because most people end up setting the focus in their pocket before quickly whipping the camera out to steal a shot and hide it away before you even know what happened. We’ll see what I can steal image wise from the world over the first two month of the project that will all be LC-A.

As with last year, posts will be about 30 days late to allow for processing time.

“Not cry. Fly.
“I can’t fly,” Bran said. “I can’t, I can’t…”
How do you know? Have you ever tried?
The voice was high and thin. Bran looked around to see where it was coming from. A crow was spiraling down with him, just out of touch, following him as he fell. “Help me,” he said.
I’m trying, the crow replied…
The crow took to the air and flapped around Bran’s hand.
“You have wings,” Bran pointed out.
Maybe you do too.
Bran felt along his shoulders, groping for feathers.
There are different kinds of wings, the crow said…
Bran was falling faster than ever. The grey mists howled around him as he plunged toward the earth below. “What are you doing to me?” he asked the crow, tearful.
Teaching you how to fly.
“I can’t fly!”
You’re flying right now.
“I’m falling!”
Every flight begins with a fall, the crow said. Look down.” – George R.R. Martin

11.07.14 San Simeon Pier.

This is one of my favorite places to take pictures. Ive stopped and taken a photo hear virtually everytime I drive The Pacific Coast Highway.

One of the first pictures I ever took of Julie was here during our first trips together. This place took on new meaning for me then, as the lines running together seem to feel like the new life Julie and I were starting.

10.21.14 The Bay.

“Sunk my heart at the bottom of the bay
Gonna wash up on the black rocks one day
Like unlucky sailors just swept out to sea
I think all the girls I’ve loved walked through your streets
But the waves and the fog always took ‘em from me

The Oakland apartments with the bars underneath ’em
The girlfriends and sweethearts and the bay in between ’em
I buried my heart at the bottom of the hill
If the girlfriends don’t get you the sweethearts sure will” – Lucero
