My Sweet Little Bathing Beauty

I took two rolls of film for this scenario. One with my lomo, and apparently the batteries were dead and NOTHING came out and I will cry for a long time because of it. So painful! Can't there be a warning, hey your battery is dead, these genius photographs you are taking are not going to exist except in your head warning light??!! And one with my lovely new "Love is in the Air" edition Diana mini. Total crap roll. It happens. But I went to great lengths for this set up. I am devastated. I think this ONE picture is beautiful, though. Please say you like it and ease my pain...

    I'm sorry. I hate when that happens. I had fun, even for this one beautiful picture!

    Beautiful photo, looks very effortful. I hate to say so, but if I have to take a truly important photo on film, I'll use something not lomographic, like my Rolleiflex 3.5f or Fuji GW690III or Iskra. Medium format and absolutely reliable. For 35mm, Beseler Topcon Super D or Minolta SR505 or Kiev 2a. Haunt garage sales and charity shops and swap meets and estate sales. Eventually you'll score something amazing.

    Love it! Has the touch of @maryrobinson and @pamelaklaffke, which is not to say that this isn't a great photo in its own right!

    Thank you! That's kinda funny. Mary Robinson is 17 and I'm 34, been a photographer as long as she has been alive and there have been many bath tub photo shoots throughout history.... She is very talented, though and thank you for the accolades!

    But this photo is perfect, in my country there is a proverb who says : "más vale pájaro en mano que ciento volando", i think a good translation is : It's better to hold a bird in your hand than a hundred flying away, so, this is the bird in your hand ;) congratulations ;)
    (i wish you understand me, cause i'm spanish and my english isn't good enough)

    this is a beautiful pic. My boyfriend always tells me: if you have at least one nice photo in the whole roll you can be happy. LOVE AN LOMO ON!

    Reading the description got me thinking... "when was the last time I change my LC-A+ batteries?" NEVER, I checked for the little red light that comes on and sure enough, IT'S DEAD :( Lucky me, I was able to retrieve the roll.

    I ran about 6 rolls through my LCA including several at an NFL football game before realizing my problem was a dead battery. I can sympathize. Great shot here though! :)

    That is THE most horrible thing. To wait so long to find a film is totally blank or over/underexposed beyond rescue is so sad. Has happened to me many times and I'm sure it will happen again.
