Who can believe that the little mighty beast of perfection could be all grown up into a young buck of 25 with the world at its feet and at least another glorious 25 years, and doubtlessly many many years ahead of it?

So let’s make this London Lomography Saturday Event a tribute to the year that our beloved Lomo LC-A was born!

How 1984 are you?

Bring all your 80ies thingies out of the closet and into the light- like your shiny white socks, your super futuristic Casio watch or your shoulder padded lather suit and take ALL of those long forgotten friends for a walk in the park.

The Lomography Embassy London will host some mini workshops to show you through the loaner Lomography cameras.

Next up, we’re in the park to hold a Lomo LC-A Retro Sports Day in the spirit of 1984. Games will be simple and fun, so if you’re not sporty don’t fret, there will be something for everyone to achieve in! We won’t let you be that kid who’s left ‘till last to be picked every week.

After some practicing and toughing up muscles, we’ll try to overcome the limits of gravity by merging in the LomoMatrix. Please take a look at this video to get a first impression:

Next up a Lomo LC-A Birthday PICNIC! Your London Embassy will have a drink and a slice of cake for you all but why not bring your own blanket and food for ‘real’ sustenance? Let’s put our picnic blankets together in the spirit of Lomography and in honor of the LC-A and have a great big, mash up, fun, kinda picnic together in the sun.

Lastly, time for the kids to leave but all of us over the merry age of 18 will decamp to another splendid Pub ‘The Britannia’ and drink the night away in a Lomo LC-A Birthday DRINK UP!

Let’s toast to 25 years of wonderful snapshot Lomography…spread the LC-A LOVE, and let’s get together and show the world that London cares!

Love,

The London Embassy

Note: If weather is foul then lets not be silly – we will set up a couple of gazebos and take some fine images but we will hold off on the sports day and hit the pub much earlier than planned. Kids are welcome during the day in the pub too.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
