As all other Lomography stores around the world, our LES opened its doors to receive the Chilean community for a welcome party of the brand new LC-Wide with some nice “terremotos” and “pan con pebre”.
On Thursday, 19th of May the worldwide launch of the new camera – the Lomo LC-W – happened. All the Embassies around the world celebrated this event, and we do not stay behind. Here’s a little recap from that party:
The Embassy was slowly filling up with people until there literally could not be anyone else. All of us shared a moment of conversation, some “Terremoto” (Earthquake in english, a typical Chilean drink made with white wine and pineapple ice cream), some “pan con pebre” and a fun time with members of the Chilean Lomographic Community. We open the LC-Wide and unpacked it piece by peace so everyone could see this magic box, even people who didn’t make it to our spot who could see it online through Ustream!
Once we presented the camera everyone had the chance to use it. We choose the half frame format so that everyone could have a picture taken with the LC-Wide (and because it’s an awesome format too!). We even had some instant pictures taken to our lomofriends with this beautiful nice cam!
Thanks to all the members of the Chilean Lomographic Community members who were present at this activity (on line and off line) and obviously we invite them and all of you to the next party that is coming really soon! Stay in touch. LomoON!
See you soon at the Lomography Embassy Store Santiago!
