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.
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!
The brand new Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves around the world this week. In an attempt to celebrate the home of the ol' bean and the cod, we ventured out in search of some classic Boston flair. While we couldn't find a baseball match or a proper clam chowder, we did have a blast chasing red brick walls and spicing up our photo shooting with some iconic American flavors!
