Picture me, staring at the Photo Lab Clerk in the nearest Walgreens Store. It's almost midnight, and I'm tapping my foot, waiting for the lady to hand me my fresh cross processed negatives. I've come to realize, like I'm sure most of you have (or are about to), I am seriously addicted to Lomography.
So on my way back home with my freshly developed rolls, [which now, at 3:21am, I have finished scanning, and will be publishing in the next few days] I started thinking about details, that might help you realize when you’ve come to be a Lomo Addict.
You are a Lomo Addict if any of the following apply (these are in no specific order):
- You own more than 5 Lomography cameras, and still browse the shop looking for your next one.
- You own 2 or more of the same cameras, just because they’re in different colors (or clone styles).
- You check your Lomohome at least 10 times a day.
- You wait for your rolls to be developed, without leaving the store/lab.
- You constantly stay up past 2am scanning your negatives.
- You constantly bring up Lomography/Films/Analog Cameras randomly into conversations.
- You eagerly check every single morning to see if you were Photo of the Day, or LomoHome of the Day.
- You reached over 1,000 photos in your LomoHome in less than a year.
- You’re up at 3:30am writing a blog about Lomography.
- You know who are the people who run every site of Lomography and the section each one of them is in charge of.
- You refresh the Lomography Facebook page every 3 minutes waiting for coupons when they reach whatever thousand fans.
- You pull an all-nighter just so you won’t miss those coupons.
- You cry if your film roll comes out blank when developed.
- You include Lomography in your Tumblr, Flickr, Facebook, or any other Social Network you belong to.
- You have a Lomography T-shirt.
- You write “Lomo” or “Lomography” in your notebooks, in the sand, in light painting, or in any other surface.
- Your Home Page is Lomography.com
- You get seriously upset when you don’t win a rumble you thought you would.
- You name Lomography cameras out loud when watching a movie and you see a scene you think would make a great photo with that camera.
These are all the “symptoms” I could come up with. Help me make this list bigger! Tell me what makes YOU a Lomo Addict!
