My new best friend mr. Praktica CX-1

Time for some praktica(L) fun and love. Please tell me about your new best friend for 2012! This is my story....

Yesterday it was a raining Thursday but me and martie were very exited my mum was coming to Groningen . And we (martie and me) had the plan to do some suprise shoping with mum at a junkshop in Groningen. And there I found the Praktica CX-1. The imaginary cloud broke open I heard angels sing….really. I stood there with a black jewel in my hand……. This was the camera where I was looking for so long. Alright it isn’t the LOMO-LC but after some research on the world wide web. I found out that the praktica CX-1 has a lot of similarity with the LOMO-LC. Today I went to my Photolab (HEMA heerestraat Groningen) to get my first rolls of film
developed and this is the result ! I used a expired roll of fuij film superia X-tra 400 from 2006.

    awesome! I read somewhere that the LC-A was a copy of the CX-2, so I bet it has some similarities ^^ enjoy the new toy
