The pictures I took in my previous visits to San Francisco seemed kind of dull. Enter my new acquisition, the Diana F+ 35mm Back and lo and behold: suddenly there's magic! Me, San Francisco and Lomo clicked instantly and something special happened, a special kind of love.
I had never had a Lomo camera on my previous trips to see my grandfather in San Francisco. Always a keen amateur photographer, my pictures would always return after processing crisp and telling of a certain kind of city and certain kind of story, but never, to me told my story in the city. They failed to act as the foreground of the city in all its beauty and my memories and the pictures never seemed sequential. They merely captured a quick moment, posing, buildings blanketing the true diversity and beauty of the city. These pictures uploaded were the first ever film i used on a Diana F+ 35mm back, and suddenly magic happened. Me, San Francisco and Lomo clicked instantly and something special happened, a special kind of love.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
