My Lomo Story by nanuth

My meeting with Lomography was due to the fate. It was less than three years

My meeting with Lomography was due to the fate. It was less than three years
ago, I was in university and I had one hour free between two lessons, I
decided to go to the library have a look in newspappers and magazines. I choose one to read it without a lot of attention! Turning the pages, one thing strikes me. It was a little plastic camera with big lens, the fisheye. There was a website link, a shop in Paris that was selling this weird thing. I order one, a pulsion! But this is how love at first sight happens!! I wait for 2 weeks , 3
weeks, one month… no camera. Out of sight, out of mind. I forgot that I ordered one and I lived my life!!

Four months later, one day before I move to another city and change my address, I receive a package. First I thought it was a mistake “ no no it may not be for me , I didn’t order something” But the name on it was mine so…I opened it and … great surprise! It was my fisheye in his bubble box! From that day I started shooting with it, not in a compulsive way but I always had it in my handbag , I knew it was here, it was an old friends relationship. When I show it everybody laugh at me “ohh what’s this beautifull
toy… (But I’m used to that because it’s the same reaction when I introduced my
ukulele) But as soon as they see the results they are envious hahah( I know
pride is a sin but envy too…).

That’s how I discover lomography society and this is the only website where I like putting some pictures. So this meeting was very open-minded considering that mistake, or haze or double exposing is constructive in photo is so good!

But I never order again on the website where I found my fisheye…
