La Sardina Splendor celebrates the best of street photography!
The new La Sardina Splendour camera commemorates the early days of street photography. There might be very few people out there who actually remember the days when photography hit the streets for the first time. To give you a little taste of what it used to be like, we designed this tasty special edition camera with fine hammer finish in metal and elegant lines. Even back in the days street photography had to be spontaneous, direct and very well timed, so this easy to use little wide-angle gem is perfect! Keep in mind the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography while celebrating the new uprising of street photography!

What is Street Photography?
Also known as candid photography, street photography is a type of documentary photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places such as streets, parks, beaches, malls, etc. The photos often give viewers a sense of the walks of life on the street might be like, almost like holding up a mirror to society!

    Oh man...I think I messed up. I added three photos that I've boosted a little of the coloring in Lightroom. Sorry....Not trying to deceive anyone.
