    My LomoStory by louison

    I had been enthroned in the Lomography sphere thanks to "nanuth":; actually she’s like my master but I didn’t realize that at the beginning… I was like a young Jedi who’s has not reach yet the wisdom of master Yoda !! When I first saw nanuth spending hours on the website of Lomography I was thinking ‘pffff she’s just a geek on an another stupid website’ then she received her Fisheye camera, took her first pictures and I told myself : ‘Wooaw these pics are crazy, this camera is like a toy and this Lomography stuff is like a confidential thing

    It's All About The Name - Lubitel!

    When I adopted Lomography as a hobby, my husband has encouraged me to experiment by giving me unique photography related gifts for all of the various holidays we celebrate like Christmas, Birthday Month, Cats Birthdays, National Waffle Day, etc. For Christmas 2007, when the presents were placed under the tree, I noticed a small box that wasn’t colorfully wrapped in reindeer or snowman paper. It was humbly covered in plain brown paper with many Russian stamps and an address label decorating the top of the box. The package was sent from Kolomna, Russia and was addressed to me. I thought, “Wow! What could this be?”

    My lubitel Story : I  <3 Lubitel

    I wanted one for the sake of novelty. I admit it. It seemed so cool to have a TLR Camera. My friend had one but he wouldn’t lend it to me because it wasn’t working properly. So when I got my LC-A I decided to add the Lubitel 2 to save on the shipping costs (Oh the lies we tell ourselves).

    No it's not a Rolleiflex and it's not a Hasselblad I'm holding in my hands. But people sometimes think so when they see me standing there with my Lubitel pointed at a great motive ready to take the picture. "It's a LUBITEL", I tell them and they just look at me sceptically.
