First Shots - Lomo Instant Automat Glass

In a break from sharing photos from my travels, I'm instead going to share some of my first shots with the Lomo Instant Automat Glass. To be fair, I've had this camera for some time now, so this post will include some photos from my travels. Regardless, I think this might be the best Instant camera currently available...and here's why.

Japan IV - Pinhole

Japan IV - Pinhole

...and so, I finally come to post my pick of the pinhole images I made in my fourth trip to Japan (in 2016). It's taken me some time to pick the images I really think sum up both the trip, and the joys of pinhole photography. When I look at these versus my lens-based shots I am equally pleased with both - and the differences in feeling between the two styles really sum up why I continue to use both techniques.

Japan IV - Faith

Japan IV - Faith

Faith seems to run through Japanese society in a way that I have not experienced elsewhere (except perhaps in Morocco). Perhaps this is because temples, like cathedrals in the west, are an essential part of every tourist's itinerary. Regardless, the signs of this are everywhere, and the populace seem to follow more than one religion (Shinto and Buddhism being dominant), which is interesting when visiting from the UK. As a visitor though, it is the beauty of the objects and places that are intertwined in this faith that I find endlessly fascinating.
