Museum Gathering

And I am back with yet more pictures of a Nerdfighter gathering! In march we went to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and I brought my Olympus Trip (with the same Ilford roll as the pictures from my last post) and also my digital DSLR. Outside the weather was beautifully sunny, so I took a lot of pictures while we were waiting for everybody to arrive and also when we had finished with the museum and went outside to catch some rays again.

Here are the analog pictures! I’ll post the digital ones later this week. 🙂

The analog pictures

The photos I took with my Olympus Trip camera during the international nerdfighter gathering in Maastricht! It is the first time that I used this film, Ilford HP5 400, a black an white film that is generally loved among lomographers because it produces high contrast photos. Of course, it was a terribly grey day, weather Dutch people will recognize with the heavy clouds covering the entire sky flattening out the light.

Kjeld surrounded by dead people

Kjeld surrounded by dead people! Inside there was too little light according to the light meter of my camera, but I forced it to take a picture anyway. 🙂 We played a Detective game with the entire group, Kjeld had to figure out who the murderer was before everyone died. My last words were, “If I die it’s gonna be your fault”.

City hall

Out on a walk in Maastricht, I took a picture of the City Hall and we also ran into a bunch of ducks.

Sometimes when shooting with my analog cameras like the Olympus Trip, I forget that the viewfinder doesn’t show the focus. So when the swan came closer I forgot to adjust it. Oops.

Surprise dance performance in Utrecht

viewers

There was some sort of dance performance at the Oudegracht in Utrecht on june 7, I caught the tail end of it. The weather was lovely, and I was walking through the city after having a drink on the edge of the water with a friend when I heard the music and saw the people who were watching the performance. I took out my Olympus Trip and shot some photos.

After the dancing, the lady on the boat gave a speech about putting it all together.

Some more photos I took in Utrecht that day.

I have a lot more photos of other things as well, I’ve been a bit lazy about posting them here. I also haven’t put them on my Lomo Home yet, but the black and white film roll is mostly on my Flickr account. Hey, it’s summer and I want to spend free time outside (and reading) so I’m not as busy with internet things like I normally am. 🙂 But I’ll do my best to post all of the cool photos eventually.
