Are You Bored with my Photos Yet?

I go through little obsessions and photography is the current one. I'm sure it'll burn out soon and I'll return to drawing.

Although I've now got an amazing high-tech super digital camera, I still have a soft spot for the humble low-tech Lomo LC1. I'd forgotten, until I had to scan a load of Lomo photos in, just what good a camera it is. The little Russian camera has a quality unlike any other. The lens is very slightly convex, so the images are subtly distorted and darkened toward the edges of the frame. Colours always seem slightly enhanced, and of course, the camera excels in low-light conditions.

Three pics taken with my Lomo LC1.

My favourite dawn shot, taken just outside the house, looking across crappy wasteland and disused factory buildings towards the far side of the canal,
