Embracing imperfection

As with my Japan trip, I brought 2 film cameras to Taipei. This time I chose to bring my Lomo Diana because it weighs so much less than my Fuji GF670. However, for lighter weight, I traded sharpness for soft focus, and risks of light leaks among other things. I think next time I’ll opt for a heavier load, but for now I am embracing imperfection! Plus this is what hipstamatic people strive for right? Lomography is a big part of that movement.

Above is a long exposure of the view from the balcony of the apartment where I stayed. I love how from almost any vantage point in Taipei some sort of mountain is visible.

  1. I love this shot. The imperfections around the corner came out great, so you were certainly right to embrace them! It’s incredible to see a city skyline dwarfed by the mountains in the background.
