Another single shot post…….Who’s a lazy little photographist?

I put it down to snow-depression which kicks in big-style every time I look out of the window…AWFUL stuff!

Anyway, even though there’s no way I’m stepping outside to take some snowy pics, I can’t bring myself to sort properly through the last SD card of pics I took in Budapest……So once again it’s a one shot post.

We’re in St Stephens Basilica, Budapest…

It’s dark…VERY dark.

We’re hand holding, with a hangover, and we’ve got light leaks, scratches, AND dust….

Why do I like this so much?

    I love all the dramatic details in this!! I like that the light and shadows seem to compliment one another ~ wonderful.

        Glad you went with color. What was your processing method? I’ve experimented with some lomo actions if you ever want to give them a try.

        Hey Lorrin 🙂
        This was just standard processing in a high street lab then scanned using an Epson V600. It was my first ‘Lomo’ roll… (I was using a Cosmic Smena Symbol I found in a Budapest junk-shop I talked about a few posts ago), so, as yet, I haven’t gotten around to anything more advanced…:-) if advanced is the right word hahaha.
        I’ll definitely be experimenting more…
        I seem to have a ‘retro low-fi’ bug going strong at the moment.
        Any Lomo advice would be very much appreciated.

        Wow, so it is a genuine Lomo image-I mistakenly thought it was a digital processed as Lomo. Very nice work! I’m currently halfway through a roll of Ilford 800 in a plastic kit Rolleiflex-style camera. I look forward to seeing the results! Other than that, I’m a cheater and like to experiment with PS actions. Keep up the excellent work.

      It was (very) cheap Agfa film but it’s really quite good stuff considering the camera has no meter and you simply set it to one of 5 available light scenarios….With B&W you’d expect that kind of latitude but for colour I think I was really lucky.

        Yes…I think it must be a new feature in WP…but the only way to check if comments have been made is from within the dashboard… You dont get any notifications as far as I can see.
        Bit of a strange set up , but I’m glad I found yours…

    I’m afraid that the shadow behind the statue will turn into a mystic crypt and things we don’t wanna know about will start crawling out o_O That’s how amazing your photo is!
