"Don't think, Just Shoot"



Lately I've been intrigued by Lomography. I saw these great cameras at Urban Outfitters for less than $40. My friend who is in to photography and collecting cameras showed me some of his pictures taken with a Diana. I also saw some YouTube short documentaries on Lomography. I love the idea of "Don't think, Just Shoot" the idea of being able to take this camera anywhere and every shot is art. It's the lightest camera evvvver. Wikipedia says, "In 1991, the Austrian founders of Lomography discovered the Lomo LC-A. As the company states, they were "charmed by the unique, colorful, and sometimes blurry" images that the camera produced." Some how the lens has a way of capturing brilliant color and focusing the light in the center of the shot. There is also a Fisheye lens that takes pictures looking like a front door peep hole. Real cool.
What I'm trying to say is.... I WANT ONE!
