Lomography will be my forever love and I have the lifetime mark to prove it! I have revived my analogue love on my recent backpacking trip to Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia. Just goes to show that I will never turn my back on something that I really love.
In case you are wondering if the photo I have attached is a real tattoo… YES IT IS! I recently had an amazing backpacking adventure during the concluded Songkran Festival in Thailand. It was a wet and wild experience for me; it was actually my first time to attend this Thai New Year celebration. It was already my fourth visit to Thailand and it has always kept me interested and surprised in so many ways.
On my trip, I decided to take Bangkok as my first stop before heading to the provinces in the south and then to Singapore and Malaysia. Since Songkran has been known to be a crazy and exciting celebration, I had the guts to take my Lomo LC-A+ on a risky adventure. Loading it with Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 ISO Film which I purchased at the Lomography Embassy Bangkok in Siam Discovery, I had the chance to shoot away some memorable moments in this busy city turned water world metropolis.
I have so much captured in my 3-country escape and it’s in the process of uploading so keep yourself posted on my albums at my LomoHome. Enjoy a glimpse of some of the scenes at the recently concluded Songkran Festival 2013.
This is the story of my first adventure on the beach this year. In the middle of June, I took my first sunbath along the seaside on a small public beach in Varazze - a rather small and unkempt place which I will never return to in the future. Read more to find out why!
The Lomography Sprocket Rocket - my first analogue camera ever - and I have had some troubled times behind us. We have been involved in a stormy love-hate relationship for several years. But in the end, we luckily managed to get over ourselves and overcome our problems. Now he's my old time favorite. Old love never rusts, that is.
When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
