Living Life with the La Sardina in Bandung


When I first bought the La Sardina, I was so interested by two things about it. To be honest, I love the 21mm lens. Wide! Not only that, the closest distance focus is 0.6m. Close! Go Wide and Go Close! Two desirable things in one amazing camera; 2 become 1. Yeah! One love for La Sardina! AHOY!!!

I like to see things around me, so when I see a cat, “Shoot it!” Or, when there are kids running around, “Shoot it!” Sunny sky on a sunny day? “Shoot it!” I like to keep things and capture them with my camera.
In other words, I love to shoot. ho doesn’t love to shoot? We love Lomography!


When I was invited to my friend’s engagement party. She asked me to shoot her and her fiancee with my lomo camera. “Yes!” I said yes of course! Great time with great friends; sharing some analogue love with them.

Since I bought the Sea Pride, I knew that it did not come with the Fritz the Blitz Flash. but I experimented and managed to use a flash! Getting creative, and experimental at the same time, inspired me so much!

Remember this?
Flash! Flash!

As I get to know La Sardina, I bring it with me everywhere I go in Bandung. Spending quality time with my girlfriend, friends, and family. There is something about La Sardina that made me realize that using it is all about getting closer with the people I care about. I love the time we spent together.

Karaoke! Karaoke!
I LOVE KARAOKE! But I didn’t realize it.
Love Us!

I really enjoy going close with La Sardina. Really!.

Going Red! Going Close!

Spending time in Bandung is really great. Spending the afternoon just walking around and enjoying the sunny, yet nice weather.

Haloo! Haloo Bandung! If you’re in Bandung, just walk around.

    @adi_totp bukannya adapternya itu utk pasang fritz the blitz di kamera lain ya? apa bisa juga utk pasang blitz hotshue di lasardina? kalo tipe la sardina yang lama (marathon & sea pride) dibanding yang baru (sapphire serpent & mobius) apa hasilnya sama? atau ada pengaruh produksi shg hasilnya beda ya? #bingung mau beli yang mana :D

    @moccappucino07 sea pride ga pake flash paketannya. La sardina yang pake flash kan lebih mahal dari segi harga. Kalau hasil sama aja kok. Maunya beli yang mana emang?
