    What's that Statue in New York Called?

    I have been driving past this particular wall for sometime and every time I drove past I would forget the golden rule of Lomo which is to take your camera everywhere. I would forget then want to kick myself as I would see some great grafitti which would be great to document. When looking back at these photos of the art work of the Statue of Liberty it reminded me of a funny story when I was teaching.

    Love at First Lomo: My First Love with the LC-A

    Many years ago, I found a Lomo LC-A camera in a flea market. This was in the early '90's when Lomography was still unknown in Italy. I bought two of these cameras together with a Fed 2, Zorki 4, and a Lubitel 166U. But I never used the Lomo cameras until 2008... Why? Read on to find out!

    My photos are dear to me but if I have to choose 20 at this moment(the list might have a slight change if I do it tomorrow), I'll pick these. Maybe because I remember feeling happy, good, excited, emotional, or even sad while taking them. That's how my shooting goes I think. Mostly based on my emotions, moods or how I feel at the moment. :)
