Diana + Holga

Lomography. A word that I've come across quite a few times on Facebook. I knew it was something related to photography but I didn't really knew what it really was. Until I checked out an old friend's blog. It was Emily Ding's. Knew her since my PLC days and just found out that her cousin and I actually go to the same church.  What a small world. Anyway! She listed some of the cameras and lenses that she takes photos with. One of them was her Holga or Lomo. What the heck's a Holga or Lomo? But with both words combined it became....... Anyway, hopped onto and from then on, I knew it. You know those feeling of warmth that slowly bubbles up from the inside and a sense of euphoria soon overtakes. It was love at first sight! They're the coolest chunkiest and functional plastics I've ever, ever seen. 

Mine sure did! A range of Holgas

Here's my favourite. The cutest Holga. The colours are just so fun! 

Another one that I like. Diana. The predecessor of Holga.

The photos that lomographic cameras capture are pretty rad. 

Here are some example from Google with their sources linked under them. These photos are taken from a pool of lomographic photos. Therefore they're are not confined to those that the Dianas and Holgas could produce and are certainly not mine!

Here's a mag website you could go to for more photos!
