To some, he’s that adorable deer receiving a snack — captured in Fisheye, in warm and lovely analogue colours, that deer sure is familiar along with a man’s username!
But in this month’s LomoDiary, we reveal something more about that LomoHome! We have got djramsay as he shares a momentous and life changing event that amazingly, Lomography was a part of!
Coming from United Kingdom, let hearts flutter as we read Daniel’s LomoDiary! Enjoy! :)
Name: Daniel Ramsay
Lomography Username: djramsay
Location: Southampton, United Kingdom
Number of years as a Lomographer: Two years

Please tell us something about yourself. What are your interests? What do you do for a living?
I am interested in the usual films, books and photography. I collect first edition books both rare and commercial along with around 20 film cameras. I’ve also started collecting rare vinyls.
I work for Skandia here in Southampton; we are the UK investment platform and product provider of Old Mutual Wealth.
Kindly relate to us any memorable experience; whether happy or sad, you’ve had in relation to Lomography.
The biggest memorable Lomography experience would be the night I got engaged! We went to Aruba for a holiday and after failing to find the “perfect moment” to ask throughout the day, I decided to wait until after dinner. We went for a walk along the beach to look at the stars and I dropped down on one knee to propose — Caroline said yes and kissed me, I had my La Sardina in my hand and captured the moment!
What are your best emotions on this?
Love, terror, excitement, and joy all at the same time!
If ever this experience did not happen, will your life (or yourself) be the same as before? Why?
Well, my life changed when we met and it changes for the better every day.
Any future plans you have that you will let Lomography play a part
We are going to get married in Italy on an island on Lake Orta and I will be handing out several of my cameras to the guests – I just need to figure out which ones.
Please share a song or a movie that has made an impact in your personal life.
Star Wars, my first film to see in a cinema.
The Hangover 2, my first date with Caroline
Let us see Daniel’s Lomo life in this gallery he personally shared with us!
This was taken with my first Lomo camera and it never fails to make me smile!
I just love this, taken with my LC-A+ Russia Day in Cornwall last year.
Taken in Aruba with a DIY Recesky TLR and the luckiest light leak ever!
L-CA+ Russia day! No idea how I managed this but I wish you still made Lomography X Tungsten 35mm film.
Caroline saying yes. :)
And now we’re just too excited for their wedding! Can’t wait to see those just-tied-the-knot-Lomographs! Congratulations, Daniel and Caroline!
