I can’t and don’t claim to know anything about the phenomenon called lomography (lomo for short). All I know are two things: I have friends who are pretty darn good at the thing, and the photos come out gorgeous. Of course, it makes you think of the irony of why we want “old” photos when we have the newest technology right now. Our grandfathers must be laughing their heads off in their graves.
Anyway, while walking around Beijing Lu for shopping (same place where I got this), we stumbled across a beautifully lighted little store – Lomography! Looking at these pictures and getting to experience the place, I then understood: good lighting makes you want to buy a lot of things, most of which you never thought you “needed”!
