*1. Tell us something about yourself and what you do for a living*

1. Tell us something about yourself and what you do for a living

Construction. yep yep. wearing boots and a ‘plastic’ helmet walking around.

2. If you are stuck naked with a Lomo camera, and you are using the camera to cover our privates … then you suddenly have the urge to take a photo. What will you do? Take the photo and expose your jewels or shoot from the hip?

Take the photo and ‘expose your jewels’. I think that’s a good excuse.

3. Which one is your favorite Lomo camera and why?

LCA. well, it’s my first Lomo camera, and it’s probably because of it that I stuck to lomo (of cos because it’s good, compact, easy to use..etc etc).

4. If Lomo wouldn’t exist, what will you have as an hobby?

Hmm.. dunno.. ballet? hmm..

    That's why I didn't mention which camera specifically. I don't know the 'size'. Muwahaha. It might just need a LC-A, a FE2 or even a Horizon! But then ... maybe a roll of 120 will do. :P Ooops! Jim's gonna kill me if he sees this.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
