Testing a Canon Demi, easily one of the most gorgeous half-frame cameras ever designed... I keep finding these gems! But I'm not a collector!

    yeah, we are not collectors at all, these things are just jumping at us begging for being used! (I acquired today olympus mju iii zoom 115 for 4 euro)

    @aleatorius It's a bit creepy, isn't it? It's like they're lying in wait, ready to ambush us when we're weak!

    @anttihoo I guess everyone here in Lomoraphy has a story to tell, like at an AA meeting %-))

    @aleatorius This place is a great support group! (But absolutely no help should you wish to quit your habit...)

    @anttihoo I think it is some sort of containment, like some serious addicts are prescribed minor drugs to keep them away from more harmful, so we do not collect leicas or contaxes! That reminds me also words of Tom Waits about quitting smoking in one Jarmusch' movie: "The beauty of quitting is, now that I've quit, I can have one, 'cause I've quit."

    @aleatorius Wise words, sir! I must remember that, the next time I need to explain myself to someone... "Well, at least I'm not shooting Hasselblad!" (Also, I need to watch Coffee & Cigarettes again.)

    I like how each window reflection is an individual picture. "Beware of my temper, and the dog that I found." Tom Waits, "Cold, cold ground," from the album, "Frank's wild years." Tom Waits was born in the city next to me: Pomona, California. @aleatorius

    @neufotomacher Like a wall of Polaroids... I wonder if Alvar Aalto thought of that when he drew the house in the sixties!
