I bought the Konica APS Disposable camera out of a whim. I was browsing the online shop of lomography and the psychedelic sample photos of the Konica APS suddenly caught my eye. I dropped it to my cart immediately. After all, it cost only a dozen dollars!

Looking for a local lab that could process the APS format of film was no easy job for me, but I finally found one. It was costly but I decided to give it a go!

The colours are so lovely and nostalgic thanks to the plastic lens and 4 years expired film!
