09 Okt Put a Lomo around your neck and you won’t be needing a dog no more…
Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs – in fact, that’s my dog Bob up there (he’s playing, not shying away;). But seriously, it doesn’t matter whether you’re holding a lomo camera or a leash in your hand – people are going to approach you all the same…
I went on a Lomo trip the other day to walk my Diana F+ and try out the new 35mm back (the classic Diana takes roll films, but I recently bought an adapter – lomographs are hopefully following soon). So I put Diana around me neck and started walking through the cute city centre. And while I was looking for lomo-worthy motifs, I got exactly 4 different reactions from the people around me:
1 – no reaction at all (all Johnny Heads-in-the-Air)
2 – curious looks and stares towards my camera (or at least that’s what I hope they were staring at…)
3 – head-shaking and snide remarks, loud enough for me to hear (I’m gonna report this as Lomo-mobbing)
4 – as well as looks of open wonder, in most cases followed by a short conversation
So, if you’re looking for a slightly different approach to meeting new people, or if you have a dog hair allergy, I highly recommend walking through a crowded place with a funny looking camera around your neck – I promise, you don’t actually have to shoot anything ;)
Ich mag es, die Welt in Lomo-Farben zu tauchen und nebenbei neue Orte zu entdecken. In meinem Blog Lomoherz verbinde ich die Liebe zur analogen Lo-Fi Fotografie mit meinem ungebrochenen Fernweh. Ich mag das Gefühl von Weite, Storytelling und das Meer. Daheim arbeite ich im Marketing und als Webkonzepterin für Content und Design einzelner Websites.
Schön, dass Du da bist!
