Color, blur, and weird photos set 1

Here's a set of photos, old mostly, that were shot differently from most of the others I do - exploiting what can be done with a small manual 35mm camera. I started doing this back in the xUSSR in the early 90s with my Lomo LC-A (long before the 'lomographic' marketing craze was dreamed up, by the way) and quickly decided that an effective mood could be captured that reflected what I 'saw' in the situation - particularly when confusion and disorder were prominent (the 90s xUSSR or the drunken bar and street scenes are examples), but also in the most peaceful and contemplative times (like the tent roof scene which actually isn't on this page). Most of these were shot with a Lomo LC-A or a Kiev 35a; a couple with my Canon A1, etc.

This is the last scan made with my Polaroid SS-4000 film scanner - as you see, something gradually stopped working on successive scan passes. That was a great setback, but I still like the result here, thank goodness.
