{Unexpected Gift}

It’s almost 1:00 o’clock in the morning…Renata, my oldest brother’s girlfriend, is just come back from Paris and look what I’ve got? My firts Lomo…. It’s the Fisheye and she bought it at Colette one of the coolest place in Paris… It was a desire since I’ve discovered the existence of this fantastic camera…
What’s a Fisheye Camera? The world’s only 35mm camera with a built-in fisheye lens! It sees a sweeping 170-degree view – compacting everything around you into a compact circular image.

It seems to be really easy to use it but I’ll let you know after my first films! I accept all the advises you can give me…Please HELP ME!

I’m so excited to use it and I’ve already decided which one will be my next Lomo!
I really hope to show you soon my first works!

have a fantastic week…

Aren’t amazing the unexpected gifts? do you remember your last unexpected one?

  • that's very... interesting
    I would have to see the results first!... seems like the world from the point of view of the fish I ate today, if he has not been already dead :S
    As for me... I'm still on vacations! for 2 more weeks!
    I may sound lucky, but I am just dying to do something with my life again :)

  • How exciting! I can't wait to see the photos you will share with us!

    Yes, I happily remember the last unexpected gift because it was this morning when I found a box of my favorite cookies sitting on my front step from a friend who just wanted to say hi!

    I just did a post about how I got a surprise gift as well! ...and it's the same camera! I have been playing with it all weekend - so much fun! Let me know if you pick up any cool tips, I'll be posting my fisheye pictures from the weekend soon!

    sounds like a really funny camera, I dont know I dont like the eyes of a fish, once I went to restaurant and it seemed like the fish was watching me and hated me for eating it...
    was a really creepy moment.
    I'm so glad to see your posts I missed you a lot

    I can't wait to see your pictures!

    I love my lomo Diana. I figured out not to leave it on the top of my bag as I walked around. The light got in and the photos didn't come out too good.

    I do have a Diana. It is pretty easy to use. I had a little trouble getting used to how the film winds. Also I kept forgetting to do it and got a whole roll of double exposed pictures.

    I have a couple of lenses for it but I've never tried the fish-eye. Can't wait to see your pictures.

    P.S. I'm glad you like my new hat.
