Documenting the Dog Days with La Sardina

When people use the term 'dog days', it does not literally refer to dogs; they refer to the hottest days of the summer, which usually peaks in early July. That means breaking more sweat than the usual but fret not, dear photographer, for this season's actually your time to shine. Analogue photography is at its best when under the brightest sunlight after all.

Lomography's La Sardina is a humble toy camera from the family. A small, understated gear perfect for shooting under natural light. Lose no shade or color, document summer with its true-to-life qualities in the Lomographic fashion.

Here are some sample shots from the community, retelling scenes from the dog days.
