you love photography.
you like your digital camera until
you see someone with a lomo for the first time.
you think that person is stupid because of using old-fashioned film.
you can’t believe that a plastic lens can produce adorable pictures.
you know you have to find out.
you buy your first lomo camera.
you take your first pictures.
you realize that your heartbeat is increased all the time.
you bring the film to the lab.
you have sleepless nights.
you hold the developed film in your hands.
you scan the negatives.
you register on the lomography website.
you enter your own lomo home.
you load up your first pictures.
you get likes from other community members.
you like and comment pictures from other users.
you start having friends on the lomography website.
you achieve awards.
you feel success.
you want more.
you find out that one lomo camera is not enough.
you try out different film types.
you improve your creativity.
you join competitions.
you spend more and more freetime with all these lomo things.
you cancel appointments with friends because you are busy.
you realize that even two lomo cameras couldn’t be enough.
you try out several experiments.
you are proud of having the lomo home of the day.
you feel addiction.
you need still more camera accessories.
you win competitions.
you could embrace the whole world.
you become a popular community member.
you start calling yourself a lomographer.
you have more films in your fridge than food.
you think digital photography is too ordinary for you.
you start collecting analog cameras.
you carry more than two lomos during a voyage.
you ask yourself if you possibly became a freak.
you get the most popular lomo home of a whole month.
you are speachless.
you know from now on that lomo is your life.
you love your life.
you love lomo.
you are me… or you?
