For The Love Of Lomography.

I have loved being part of the lomographic community. But it's time for a break.

I have been involved with lomography longer than I’ve been able to read chapter books. It really is such a strong part of me. But I think I’m going to retire from the website for a few months.

Photo by rake

Recently, there was an accident at my house. I ended up losing 80% of my cameras and accessories (Including my first lomographic camera, my holga, 2 other LC-As, and all of my development services.) Only my LC-Wide, Horizon, and Fritz the Blitz flash remain. So quite obviously, I’m crushed. And I’m just not financially ready to buy back some of my favorite cameras.

SO I’m pretty depressed.
And I don’t really have to will to keep up with my lomohome. So I won’t be posting for a while.
I’ll still be shooting like a motherfucker, but not posting, or posting as much.
After losing my favorite cameras I realized that recently I’ve just been taking pictures for the sake of other people, and shooting just hasn’t been as fun.

So I moved to Texas and now I’m just shooting whatever makes me happy.
I’ll be back soon. With a shitton of pictures.
But until then, au revior, Lomographic Society. You’ve been fucking awesome.

    Hey rake! We'll wait for you and yes I can relate to that...I've had times when I just wanna shoot endlessly coz it's therapy for me in some ways but don't have the energy to post. And yes that's right on...shoot for yourself...what makes you happy...not shoot to please others :)
    We'll miss your fucking awesome photos though :)
