LomoPeople: Johan

This is my handsome friend, Johan. He is a real stand-up guy, always makes me laugh, and he never minds me shoving all my cameras up in his face! He is a great friend!

He is also quite the analogue chap and that’s nice for me because I’m way too attached to my computer. If his computer brok,e I imagine he wouldn’t run out the door to immediately buy a new one, he is pretty chill with it.

He likes to really TALK about things.

I moved home in December 2010, and one night in January we were both up late on Facebook and the chat, I was extremely bored and he was going to watch a movie. It was probably around 11.30 PM, but he still asked me to come over (we lived only 4 minutes away from each other then by walking distance), completely spontaneously. I love spontaneity. So, of course I went over, but I was very excited cause I hadn’t seen him in probably 2.5 years and I hadn’t been home to him in over 10 years. But it’s one of those people I’ve always known because we went to the same school, I had a girl friend and he was friends with her little brother, so we’ve always been around each other, and I’ve always liked him. When he was a kid he had a ton of freckles in his face and he was the first boy I ever had a crush on.

Anyway, I went over to him and it was just a great time, we didn’t end up seeing any movies but instead talked for over 5 hours about everything and anything until it was 5:00 in the morning and I decided to go home so we both could sleep.

He is really inspirational in his approach to life, whatever doesn’t work for him — he changes and if he wants to do something he just outright does it. He has self-confidence to last a marathon around the world 50 times, he works out, he runs every day. If he goes out to a club, he’ll dance until the sweat is pouring from him.

He inspires me because he is a lot of what I’m not, especially when it comes to confidence, so having him as a friend is good in more ways than one.

And last of all, he is damn fine looking, wouldn’t you say?

But I might be biased, he’s been my #1 crush since I was 8 years old. So only 16 years.

He’s great.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
