The Hell With Perfection — Freedom for Photography!

Smith Family Roll

I was told by a fellow lomographer that you could pick up any film camera at the smith family which is a major op shop/ thrift shop all across Australia, and that she had once got a fisheye 1 there for $1.50. I went and checked it out and although there were no really cool cameras there was this one which had the film still in it and the camera worked, so I got it, rewound the film and exposed it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it had in fact been exposed and worked the date back to 2003 by the movies that were on the movie theatre signs. The photos were obviously taken in Sydney and I had exposed most of it when I was on holiday in Queensland but I really liked how some of the photos had similar subject matter, like they were taking photos of a motorbike on the road and I was taking photos of a car on the road etc.
