The sushi and sake kept hungry Lomographers happy at this week's Blue Hour as we celebrated the new camera clones created in honor of Japan’s Golden Week!
Along with the sushi and sake there were wasabi peas and plenty of beer to go around. DJs Belinda Martin and Pierce Gibson were spinning and the room was packed before we knew it! The real stars of the evening were definitely the three new clones that we warmly welcomed to the Lomography family. Each clone is given a beautiful Japanese name. The Diana F+ is called “Kirameki,” which means sparkling. The Diana Mini goes by the name “Jiyu,” meaning freedom. The Fisheye No.2 boasts the name “Shiawase,” meaning happiness. There was certainly plenty of happiness that night!
Don’t forget to stop by every Thursday for drinks, fun, and photography!
