My LomoStory by paper_doll

“No, it’s not like any other love. This one is different because it’s us.” - The Smiths

It all started in the beginning of 2006, when I read about Lomography in a Portuguese magazine. I found it interesting but I didn’t know much about analogue photography, I didn’t know anyone who did and I didn’t even know that I could buy such cameras in Portugal, so eventually I forgot about it.

A few months later, in October, a notebook called “51% Lomography – 2007” was release by the Portuguese Lomographic Embassy and when I saw it, I remembered the magazine article I had read earlier that year. I flipped every page and stared at the images, I couldn’t believe how beautiful they were! I decided that I had to know everything there is to know about those fascinating little plastic cameras. (Ironically, one year later I won the “51% Lomography – 2008” notebook in a contest!)

After that, I was anxious to have a lomo camera of my own! I couldn’t stop talking about it, it was crazy – I’m sure you all know the feeling. So a friend of mine gave me the actionsampler for Christmas. I laughed and jumped and I haven’t stopped collecting analogue cameras ever since!
