Swim, Swim My Little Frogeye!

7

Once upon a time ago, frogs were related to Lomography too. You don't believe me? Read this!

I own this handsome frog. Yellow and black in colour. He can swim, he can hide and he can be creative!

As Frogeye is no longer produced by Lomography, I searched for this legendary camera everywhere. I ended up buying it from eBay, new in the box!

This camera is pretty awesome as it comes with a strap which can be used underwater (although I never used it). Its solid body shape is similar to a stocky bodybuilder making it look more masculine. Under the water, it can show its magic, with high ISO film, it marvels everyone. Not only that it is good underwater, it is said to be the partner of LC-A on the land! The lens captures shots similar to the quality if an LC-A. With a built-in flash, there is no need for an external flash. This camera is also for those who seek for ‘express Lomography’ for you do not need to think about forwarding the film or setting the ASA and focusing.

My frogeye is still in my closet, a legend that will not be neglected. A legend that should be hailed!

    My Vinyl Paradise

    “I would like to buy a jukebox.” I've said this many times, so 4 years ago my ex-girlfriend went to my home with a little package. "It's a present for you," she said. I opened it and found a 12" vinyl disc, the single "Woman" by Wolfmother. It was wonderful. "If you will finally buy a jukebox, you shouldn't miss playing this song," she said.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    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.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
