Weekly Photo Challenge – RENEWAL
I just have to tell you the story behind these photos!
Late this summer I was invited to my aunt’s husbands 80-years party. I have to admit I wasn’t quite overwhelmed with joy over it. Don’t get me wrong, I love my aunt and her husband, they are very very kind and easy going people, but a 80-years party ( I thought..)….. Well…..
As I hate indoor photography I was hesitating about what camera to take, and how to do it, if doing it at all…
Well, I thought that IF I was to take a camera with me at all, it would be for doing something completely new. So I decided on my little Lomo LC-A with the nice Colorsplash flash and Kodak T-Max 100. The camera is syncronizing at the second curtain, so I thought that it could perhaps make some interesting images.
What I not in my wildest imagination had considered was that these folks was NOT just sitting still on a chair… hehe…
There was a liveband playing rock music, and these “oldies” were practically dancing with an energy I might have had when I was in my thirties. I and my cousins were the youngest people there and we were totally stunned, I promise you…
My 100 ISO film was not a good choise at all, I definitely would have needed 400 speed….
At the late evening when I was leaving, my aunt hugged me and said, – Oh, you just wait until next year when I turn 70, then we’ll have a PARTY!! 😀
I left, totally renewed, (never been happier being totally wrong,) and I think my indoors flash photos were quite good too…..
