Square format photos

This week’s Photo Challenge theme is square format photos, so I’ve been out and about with my LOMO Lubitel (“ЛОМО Любитель”) 166. It’s a cheap Soviet camera that takes square pictures natively.

The lens is not really designed for colour use and suffers badly from softness, vignetting, chromatic aberration and coma, so on paper it’s a terrible lens. In practice, it gives the pictures a sort of glowing, nostalgic feel.

One of these pictures will make its way into the Photo Challenge as an entry, but I’m not telling you which one! Check the Challenge results on Tuesday. 😉

The first three pictures are taken in and around Oldbury Court, while the fourth is a view of the belltower at St Matthias campus, UWE.
