CLASSIC Lomo experience

4

The college my boyfriend and I attend, Rogue Community (in Medford, Oregon) is partners with Southern Oregon University, located about 30 minutes away in the oh-so-badass city of Ashland. They recently built a new college building/campus in downtown Medford that is called the RCC/SOU Higher Education Campus.

The building totally outdoes all the older RCC buildings that are located right next to it; in fact, seeing that new building for the first time yesterday (the first day “back to school”) felt like stepping into a mini-city in itself.

Anyways, Anthony and I are touring the building, inside and out, just for our own pleasure, and of course with my fisheye2 in hand. I spot this guy with this HUGE nikon camera that looks so amazing and so expensive. I whisper to Anthony to check it out. Before I know it, the guy is approaching US saying “hey, are you a photographer?” I think I said something like “you could say that…” as I’m drooling over what is in his hands. He asks to see OUR camer and is so impressed, holding it up and staring through the viewfinder at the new building. He states “man, that’d be a nice camera to have” (yes, his big fancy camera is still in his hands), takes a couple pictures of us, asks our names, and walks away…

We just looked at each other and busted up laughing.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
