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!
