My Lomo Fisheye No.2 loves the sun and clouds! Lets spread the Lomo-love everybody!
I bought my Lomo Fisheye 2 camera back in 2009. And at that time I was very excited to take pictures. On the first roll, I was trying to take some pictures of the sun and clouds. Also because I live in Malaysia, so the sun always radiates with its sunny-shine in the afternoon and I thought it was the time for me to go Lomo-ing!
After developing the film I was surprised with the results: THEYTRULYLOVETHESUNANDCLOUDS!

This is the reason I was more interested in Lomography and more addicted to taking the pictures of the sun and clouds ..

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.
