The Adventures of Mr. LOMO LC-A

The Adventures of Mr. LOMO LC-A postcards idea came about after i watched the French movie Amélie where the kind hearted waitress persuades her father to follow his dream of touring the world by stealing his garden gnome and having an air-hostess friend send pictures of it from all over the world.

My “localised” version (cos i don’t have a friend who works for the airline :P) is to use the template meant for the LOMO LC-A+ Customisation Competition, “humanise” it with hands and legs and shot him against different backdrops of my hometown, Singapore.

So, its like Mr. LC-A in different places and well maybe some adventures along the way :P

To celebrate the 25th birthday of the beloved LC-A, the postcards were printed and sent to the LC-A 25th Anniversary Postcard Project as well! ENJOY!
