Villa Arcadia

So my happy list continues, albeit slowly.  I have been busy marking student work and finalising the next issue of the magazine.  I realise how quickly we get drawn into the mundane and conventional.

That is why I love lomography, it is unconventional and nothing is predictable.  Every image that is taken with a lomo camera is a surprise.  

The dictionary defines a surprise as ‘an unexpected or astonishing event, fact, or thing’, ‘denoting something made, done or happening unexpectedly ‘.

The image below was taken while shooting at Hollard’s Art Collection at there new head offices in 2006.  Villa Arcadia  is an elegant landmark on the foothills of Johannesburg built by Sir Lionel Philip 1907 and designed by the infamous Sir Herbert Baker.  Shot on Tungsten film the image is indicative of the soft and gentle character of lomo photography.
