All Hail the Queen (of Lomography)!!

I just realized that I forgot to blog about this and I've had this camera for a few months now. Eeep.. So alright, a little background...

For as long as I can remember, I have been praaaaying for this camera. It's one of the premium cameras of Lomography. So I spent my days just browsing through the LCA+ gallery  and sighing. Theeeen, I found this baby on eBay. The owner was selling it for half the price of the brand new one and it's slightly used (as in she used just 1-2 rolls with it). I was so excited!! The beau was wonderful, by the way. We paid for this 50-50. I can't wait to try it so I loaded 2 rolls in a week. 

What I saw just blew me away. I guess you can't really start to love something this awesome until you had a chance to use it. The 2 rolls were Solid Gold 200 and a Provia. Both gave unexpected results.

I love the "legit film" feel of the photographs, whether they're from a negative film or a slide film. I love that it's small enough to fit in your pocket. I love taking it with me on walks. I just absolutely love it!! She truly is THE queen. So glad to have the chance to own one of these gems.

These look so cool! It makes me want to dust off my Holga and give it a try again. Maybe I'll have better luck this time :)

You should! You actually need a lot of sunlight for that one though. Or a good flash.
