A Lomo Celebration of the LCA in the form of a Sports day with a Twist!
Victoria Park Hackney, not far from the Potential site of the Olympics and here we are to run our feet off in celebration of 25 years of the glorious Lomo LCA. The park is wonderful extensive in size and easy to get lost in, it was the perfect weather for a sports day. Fun packed and filled with sporting tension we battled in four teams to win coveted prizes and maintain our self esteem! Backwards racing!; three-legged racing;Hula hooping; the egg and spoon; bubble blowing and more chewing and bubble blowing! and not forgetting the wheelbarrow race, all to Olympic standard of course!
Lots of pics later from a multitude of cameras and all warmed up by the running, we were well and truly ready for the highlight of the day … “the lomo Matrix”
