A Tin Of Sardines

My life is slowing down right now and I can't express how relieved I am. I finish college this week so I will finally have some time to sort my head out and actually indulge in things that I enjoy. I booked a holiday last week too, so it will be great to get away next month. However, I am now the poorest I have been in my life so far.

Moving on, that enough of poring my emotion out all over the internet, lets talk cameras. I own an old Praktica film camera which I picked up at a car-boot sale about 4 years ago but have never actually got round to using. So, the other week I went hunting for some film and finally took it out for a spin, only to find (upon getting my photographs developed), that the camera is actually probably near death. Which is a great shame because I have a lot of love for it's shell. Since this, I've been on the hunt for a new film camera, preferably a Lomography one. After scouring their online store last week, I found the love of my life- the La Sardina.

With it's wonderfully quirky, sardine can design and wide-angle lens, this camera has without doubt, stolen my heart and I haven't stopped thinking about it since I set eyes on it. It's soul crushing that I can't afford it now until next month, but I'll absolutely be worth the wait.

Some lomography photographs, who wouldn't want to take photos like these?:

  1. Ah great camera. I got a Lomography one for christmas and only brought it out for the first time when I was away a couple of weeks back, it was broken to! Gutted! Im thinking of just getting iphone and downloading the app to get pics like these. The modern way to be creative...or not. :P

  2. Lomography love! I've got so many Lomo photos saved in my favourites, and they're in so many of my posts. I love the Sardinia too, but I also don't have the money! I've got a few of the Lomograph cameras and they've all been great - I haven't risked using film in my very old cameras until I modify them!
