My looks: shoot it!

I was seriously just too lazy to drag get myself outside. One of the downsides of winter is that it’s  getting dark early so it's hard to shoot.
Anyways I got myself entertained with the old Leica camera of my boyfriend. There is something very romantic and mysterious in those old-fashioned film cameras. I don’t think that it’s ever possible to get this exciting slash warring feeling with modern digital cameras. With a film camera you never know what you get – a blurred mess or a perfect example of pure beauty and outstanding photographer’s skills. But whatever it is the magic of it never could be compared with the mystery-free fruits of progress.

  8. well, how great are those colours! something bright and happy in this annoying winter time. and red is starting to become one of my favourite colours lately :)
    btw, it's a pity you can't answer the questions but it's okay of course. it's not that important anyway. though it's certainly interesting :D I just like reading about other bloggers :)
    anyhow, enjoy the winter and the snow ;)

  11. Потрясающий цвет блузки, так сочно и ярко!
    Да, на зиму жалуемся, наверное, только мы - отчаянные русские девушки, в холод и снег бегущие куда-то в юбках и колготках :)
    У меня даже где-то был плёночный фотоаппарат из начала 90х..Надо поискать :)

    хх,

  21. Old cameras are so 'romantic'. It is also the fact that until few years ago you had to wait to see the results of your pictures and I remember loving picking up the photo and see how they were (often not very good!). Now everything is immediate and easy. Anyway, I really like your outfit and the orange shade suits you so well! Alexandra, hope you're enjoying a great w-e and, once again, I would like to thank you for your support!
