I finally had a chance to get some film developed and these photos are from my ‘Virginia is for Lovers’ La Sardina lomography camera. The first two times i felt like a dummy because i didn’t twist the lens far enough to hear the ‘click’ for the camera to work so the first two rolls didn’t turn out. But third time’s the charm! I like the photos ok, but i want something brighter. I think i may have to try some lomo film sometime soon. Do you have any experience with lomography film, Sweet World?
Recently i got another camera to experiment with, and this is one i had been wanting since it came out. Yes, another camera. And yes, i just had to have it. It’s a La Sardina lomography camera but this one is specific to my roots (ha!). I’m talking about the ‘Virginia is for lovers’ edition. For those of you who don’t know, i’m from Virginia originally and lived there for 27+ years of my life before i just picked up and moved to the midwest.

When i saw this camera, i knew it was perfect. I finally got the chance to order it and didn’t even take it out of the package for a while because it was so pretty. Hehe. Finally, i opened it and loaded it with some film and am currently working on finishing the roll. I can’t wait to get the photos developed and see how they turn out! I’ve really been enjoying film lately and love the anticipation of wondering what the photos will look like. Oh, how we’ve been so spoiled with digital! Anyhow. I also thought i’d share some photos i found online of more fun little plastic cameras that i wouldn’t mind if they somehow *wink wink* made their way into my collection.
(All photos above were found on Pinterest and original sources could not be tracked down. I did not take these photos and give credit to the owners, whomever they may be!)
You may remember the post from a while back that i posted of my first photos from my newer lomography Russian camera. I was so stoked with how those photos turned out that i took the camera with me to Holland when i went in February. I was excited to see the results but when i was winding the film and thought it was at the end, it turns out it wasn’t and some of the photos got over-exposed. I think because of this, not many photos turned out. I will say that this camera gives me unexpected results every time and has some fun, unexpected double-exposures that keep me happy. Some regular photos turned out from this roll but they weren’t too exciting so i picked out three that gave me cool results and that are my favorite from the roll. They’re not spectacular but they’re still dreamy and interesting, and i’m ok with that.
