The Origin of a New Spirit

A couple of months back, me and some friends from two distant cities found that there was something joining us we could not explain. As we came with a name for the feeling, all of our meetings take us to a distant state of mind. Sabi

In September of 2010, a couple of guys from Lisbon I didn’t know joined me and some friends in a week far away from our hometown.We didn’t know them but right away there was something that blended us together like a delicious lasanha.
It was new to feel such a special feeling towards people we didn’t know at all but with time we came across the explanaition that it was the universe that glued us together. We geeked about the same things, we had the same kind of passions… We lived in a group as it was a brench of our family that we didn’t know already.

After the first meeting, we agreed that every month the group from Porto and the group from Lisbon would meet in one of the cities. So we would never lose the spirit.
I started studying photography at school and stumbled upon the concept of Lomography and I realized it was crucial to capture the essence of what we were and my beloved Diana F+ started to be a member of the group.

This month we met in Lisbon. And the poetry of destroying your routine with urban poems is absolutely incredible. This time, we had a lovely polaroid to join us and the human need for the feeling that you are an important part of the universe was shown with only an analogue perspective of life.
