I've travelled just for a Lomo Workshop!

I like to travel... I think it's the best way to recharge ones self... Not just to unwind and see what a place has to offer... but to meet new friends too!

In the heat of the Summer, I flew by myself from Singapore to Beijing to visit my friend for a few weeks. I’ve never actually gone to a new place without a travel buddy… but I guess this was a good opportunity to start with. I roamed around the streets of Beijing, under the scorching sun with all my sweats (and trusty umbrella of course)!

It was my first travel where I was excited to use my lomo cameras (Diana Mini and Action Sampler). I knew I had to visit the Lomoshop this time around and get me some more of ’em lomo cam (and i got my LCA+)! So I went to the Lomoshop @ San Li Tun and with luck, I registered for workshop scheduled on that weekend where we would develop our own B&W films!!! I got so excited and started the weekend early to shoot my very first B&W roll for the workshop!

I was the only one there who couln’t really speak Mandarin. Luckily, they were nice enough to translate for me the important details… and whalah!!! I’ve developed my very own B&W film!!! Plus I got myself a Lubitel “tattoo” on my arm as a gift!!!

I remember well a comment that quaisoir left for me in one of the photos… “u went all the way to China 4 a lomo workshop??!!”
