Merry Christmas To Me

Or maybe it's an early birthday present... oh dear, seems I've broken my own rule about no new toys. Well, I did order this ages ago, does that still count?!
Bought myself a little replica lomo style camera to play around with. It arrived in the sweetest little wooden box, wrapped in the cutest paper and came with a little book, instructions, film and other such goodies. Bugger the camera, I just loved the packaging!
Well maybe not bugger the camera, I will have to see what comes out once I get the films developed. There's something quite exciting about waiting to see what turns out at the end of the film, reminds me of 6th form photography classes, squirreled away in the darkroom at lunchtimes... man I sound like I was such a dork!
Perhaps, if things go well, you'll be seeing some of these photos here, fingers crossed!

YAY! welcome to the club! although I haven't touched mine for over a year now. eeek... sometimes its too much work to get the films done. I would just get the films developed and then put onto disk as it was cheaper than develop and print.. esp if hardly any of them come out. then i could choose off the disk and print the ones that worked. For every 12 shots there would only be 5 or 6 actual good ones!.. but boy were they good!!! you'll have so much fun! its so exciting!

That is a really great suggestion, I think I will take your advice and get them put onto cd first! Was using it yesterday at the beach, and found it hard at first to accept that I couldn't review the pictures I'd taken, but I got into it after a while!
