Tracing My Lomo Beginnings: From a Broken Heart to the Sweetest La Sardina Escape

Okay, this may be cheesy. It's about my love story. Even if this is quite personal, I think I will share it to show you how big Lomography's part in my life is.

It all started at the end of 2011, when I broke up with a lovely girl from my hometown. The world seemed so blue and the sun always refused to shine on me. “I thought we’re meant to be together,” I told myself. A deep sorrow surrounded my days after since. I wanted to lock myself alone in my room, but I was working on a big project at that moment. I knew that I had to move on, even when my heart was broken.

But it didn’t last long. Just after I finished the project, I saw this, beautiful, b-e-a-utiful thing. Dressed in red, offering the sun that I was missing…

It was a La Sardina El Capitan.

It was truly the sweetest escape. Day by day, my La Sardina healed all the pain from the recent hurt. It began picking up the pieces. I began to smile, and the photos started reshaping memories.

Now, I am absolutely sure that my La Sardina and I are meant to be together. There’s no way I will give up on my La Sardina because I love it .

This is why I thank YOU, Lomography! You are really taking a part of my life, in a very good way. Besides, I also believe that love will find its way.

What about that girl from my hometown now? Well, I told you, love will find its way!

Stay in love, my Lomo Friends!
