Lomo’ing at the Market

Like a little boy with a new toy, Hubby was aiming an iPhone indiscriminately all over the place last Sunday at the RC Sunday Market. I am used to him holding the shopping bags by my side (thank you Mama Diding, you have trained him well) as I made my usual stop from one stall to the other.  He was by my side the next minute then all of the sudden he was amongst the slow moving crowd along the busy corridor.  On several occasions, I made several stops and waited for him until he reappeared.  He acted like our youngest daughter who strays away and roams on her own at the shopping mall, unconsciously going by the golden rule numbers 5, 6, and 10 all the time.

Unwary stall owners continued to trade business while he acted like a Health Inspector observing proper food handling hygiene and suspiciously snapping photos as he went along the corridor.

Then he proudly showed me the ‘artwork’ he did while we were at the Sunday market.  He was practising Lomography and showed me the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography.  Eight out of ten Golden Lomography rules are familiar and of interest – father and daughter doing their normal day to day affair.

Ten Golden Rules of Lomography:

1. Take your LOMO with you wherever you go
2. Use it all the time, at any time – day or night
3. Lomography does not interfere with your life, it’s a part of it
4. Get as close as possible to the objects of your lomographic desire
5. Don’t think (William Firebrace)
6. Be fast
7. You don’t have to know what’s going to be captured on your film
8. You don’t have to know what’s on the film afterwards either
9. Shoot from the hip
10. Don’t worry about rules

Hubby was in Melbourne and showed me a photo of another method of cooking his favourite.
