After working 12+ hours, I hopped on the bus, packed tightly like a can of sardines, for my commute back to West Hollywood. Beyond flustered, a few stops before mine, I decided to hop off and walk the rest of the way home. They say everything happens for a reason and lo and behold, before me was the coolest little shop I’d ever seen.
Lomography is a film photography company founded in Austria in the early ’90s. The shops- now world wide- offer an array of old school film cameras, Polaroids, video cameras ect. In addition to that, they offer amazing workshops to teach customers how to properly master the original art of photography. You know, the one that existed before the introduction of digital cameras and instant uploads.
Once I locked eyes on the La Sardina, I knew this baby had to be mine. Made from a repurposed sardine can, how ironic was it that I only discovered this gem because I was sick of being packed on my bus ride like a can of sardines.
I am very excited about trying my hand at photography but as anyone who knows me well knows, I’m completely obsessed with something one day and have zero interest in it the next. I find that putting pen to paper and writing down my desires does wonders for my level of commitment to my personal goals. So here I am, publicly committing myself to pursuing this hobby with fervor. Wish me luck!
