The evolution of a keyring.
When I received the Lomo fisheye keyring, the first thing I did was to accidentally break off the lens. So, while glue-ing it back, I noticed the keyring body was empty. Since then, every time I was to use my keys, I used to view, look and, sometimes, stare at the little Lomo, thinking that it was a waste of space to leave the keyring empty… Next step was to let the object to evolve into a pinhole camera.
I had to break the keyring open and divide it into its single parts. After extracting the lens I had to fit in a very little pinhole (0.2mm) and line the camera with a black pasteboard ring, to avoid light to slip in.
Working in the dark room I carved small pieces of photographic paper, taped them into keyring’s whole body and closed my new pinhole camera. After that, still secluded in the dark room, I rapidly flashed on my face, while pointing at me with the camera.
When I felt that the process was over, I developed the photographic paper until little images appeared on the negative. With a scanner I enlarged and turned to positive the images.
From now on, I can proudly say I have the littlest working Lomo pinhole camera of everything!
The next step is to find LC-A, Diana and Lubitel keyrings. Coming soon!
