    LomoLocation Gallery: Wear Your Sunscreen

    "__Last Saturday (May 3), we spent the cloudy afternoon at Anawangin Cove, 35 minutes away south by outrigger boat from Pundaquit Beach in Zambales, Philippines. The sea was choppy and nimbus clouds loomed above us. But neither rain nor seawater can dampen our spirits.

Don’t you deserve a little time in the spotlight too? A little “living in the limelight,” as it were? Luckily, the LC-A+ camera in your hand is nothing short of an all-in-one Self Portrait magic box. Sure, it’s wonderful to just hold the camera at arms’ length and shoot your smiling face. But here’s a little something to really make it shine.
