It's certainly heartwarming to see one of the teams from the Great LOMO LC-A Race devote so much time and effort in sharing their experiences with the camera to an unknown audience. Perhaps this is North America Team 2's way of letting us join in the festivities?
North America Team 2’s customized Lomo Notebook from the Great LOMO LC-A Race is one of the most deeply personal ones we’ve seen. Complete hands-on, personal experiences are written and shared by every member on each of the pages so that us spectators can get a better glimpse of the inner workings of the team’s mind. They’ve also devoted quite a number of words about their expectations and eventual modifications to the camera kit for us to read so go check them out!
