U is for 'Unexpected'

Because Lomography is about trying something new, experimenting with the untried, breaking with convention and, often, getting unexpected results — which may be great or may be awful ;-) In this shot, for example, I took a double exposure (for the first time in my life) with the Diana F+, using the 38mm super-wide lens for the first exposure, then removing the lens and taking a 'pinhole' shot (also for the first time in my life) for the second exposure. Although I planned it quite carefully, I sure as hell had no idea what it would look like until I got it back from the lab. The unexpectedness of the final outcome of your shots is just one of the things that makes Lomography so much more fun and exciting than digital photography.

    @adash: yeah, I was pretty happy with it at the time, but I realise now it's nothing compared to all the amazing doubles and pinholes other people have on here. Still, the first time for most things is quite special, I guess. Thanks for commenting!
