My LomoStory by nural

This is the story on how I became accustomed to and eventually became addicted to Lomography.

I still remember it like yesterday… It was August 2007, we were shopping for stuff in a department store (Boyner to be exact) and right when we got the cashier, I saw those weird looking, funky cameras!!! At first I didn’t realize what they were, something with 4 lenses, another with 9, and one even took photos under water!

After some begging to my hubby, I managed to get the most “logical” one to buy: the Frogeye!!! It seemed logical at that time, considering we were going on a summer vacation, to a beach town for that week. I spent 4 rolls of film in 3 days, in a swimming pool!!! But I never forgot the other cameras I saw on that hot August day… Then when we went to Barcelona in June 2009, I did my research, prepared my arguments, even saved the address of the Lomo Store to our GPS. That’s when I started enlarging my Lomo collection, with a Fisheye 2 and an Actionsampler!

After only 8 months, I own the Frogeye, Fisheye 2, Actionsampler, Diana F+ and all the lenses, Lubitel 166 and my Diana Mini is on the way, and I know that I’ll buy a bunch more because now Lomography is a huge part of my life and I’m happy where I am, right here among a billion other Lomographers who share my passion!!!
