if it had not been for helga's lomolific post today i wouldn't have known what on earth lomo is. yes folks, i have been living under a rock that way. a huge one, the size of my parents' house.

and had i not read helga's post all the way i would have thought she was talking about some wild goat in austria. the fact that the goat or whatever it is -- is called a lama, and not a lomo - should not escape you either. sure validates how smart i am these days.

but. since i now know that lomo is not a goat but a camera used in some fine kind of artsy photography, and because i am yet to make that step into stealing some money from some unfortunate foreigner guy when he signs some papers in his deathbed -- before i can get an actual lomo, i tried lomoing using this and woohoo, here i am -- all 80/60-bp of me, still awake at 2:30 am and grinning the grin of a kid who has just discovered something FUN. did i tell you guys i'm into photography? fine fine, most pictures are OF ME but that still qualifies as a subject right? sheez, lomo is the shit! *fanmode here*

and because this is my blog, you will not be spared from MY first ever lomo-ed pic:


yes, that is an alcoholic beverage i am holding. and yes, i will be back for more lomo. and alcohol! yay!

We used to Lomo-fy photos from our cams before by taking pictures with super slow shutter speed. Pretty close, but it's still not the same.

LOMOS LOMOS! A photographer acquaintance scored a Lomo for 50 pesos some years back. Ukay-ukay, kamown.

Just check http://www.lomography.com/ and their shop. Awesome stuff. But I do everything with my normal camera anyway, no money to spend on the cool gadgets.

I'm still scratching my head as to what LOMOing is?!

when i first read the word "lomo", what came to mind was "diba pancit yun?" nyaha, i was thinking of pancit molo. i don't know if i'm just hungry or i really need some sleep. hmm, probably both... =P
