A camera is part of me

Losing my best friend is painful

LOMO Smena 8m, the 1st ever analogue camera I fall in love with.

Even though it is my 2nd camera (after Holga 135), it become my 1st choice camera for so long. I still remember browsing the internet reading about antique and collectible items, suddenly I bump into an article on this little precious camera. After reading about this little gem, I poisoned myself with a powerful drug, Lomography. Starting there, no turning back.

Looking at all my lomograph,I can say almost 70 percent of them come from Smena 8m. Although few months later I own Smena 35, his little sister, I still love Smena 8m because its design is classic and antique, fit into my style.

The sad story just happened two weeks ago, when I lent it. It broken and I just felt like part of me is dying. I love it very much, it is my best friend for most time.

But things happen, I’ll try my best to fix it. Im just asked 1 camera service shop few days ago, they say they can’t fix it. But I promise to myself I will try my best to fix it. It’s my precious camera, the camera that brings me joy in the wonderful world of lomography.
