I found this little site called lomography.com years ago and I rediscovered it about a week ago and fell back in love with all the site has to offer !! Lomography moto is " Don't Think, Just Shoot " ! It's all about plastic cameras all 35mm and 120mm.

They have a set of 10 Golden Rules:

  1. Take your camera everywhere you go.
  2. Use it any time – day and night.
  3. Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it.
  4. Try the shot from the hip.
  5. Approach the objects of your Lomographic desire as close as possible.
  6. Don't think. (William Firebrace)
  7. Be fast
  8. You don't have to know beforehand what you captured on film.
  9. Afterwards either.
  10. Don't worry about any rules.
I love taking pictures because of the beauty of it. I also love to share my memories in scrapbooks and that motivates me to always take a good picture. However I have become so used to taking pictures and then saying let me see it ! I am over the digital grind and want to get back into the element of surprise by using a 35mm camera. I haven't used one since probably 1998 and have discovered there is still a whole world of people that still use them and are forgetting the rules and having fun with it !!

So I ordered....drum roll please ........

The Diana Mini En Rose

The reincarnation of the original 1960's version. It's know for its soft vinaigrette photos ! It comes with colored gels so you can make your pictures any color you want !! Boy is this going to be fun !! I can't wait for it to come in so I can play with it. It comes with colored gels so you can make your photos any color you want !!  Join the movement and forget the rules and check out lomography.com !!
