    My LomoStory by johann_affendy

    Back when I was a social networking addict, I was always in search of new ways to edit my self-portraits; hoping it would spice up my 3.2 megapixel pictures.

The writer had a before-and-after comparison of a normal photograph and the lomo version of that same picture. The outcome, although digitally manipulated, piqued my interest enough to google more on lomography.
