Lomography


These are cheaply made little cameras that have multiple lenses (four) that snap shots and slightly different angles a half second apart. So in effect you get little motion stills. When you develop the film, the four shots come out in one frame. There's also one with 8 lenses. And you can get some with fish eye lenses, or colored flashes. Because they are cheaply made, they are highly succeptible to light (so that have fast shutter speeds and do okay indoors) and they tend to supersaturate color. They are made cheaply also so they can be available to everyone. You can see this and other things I want at my amazon wishlist.

That's a lot of ipods and digital cameras that you want. By the way, I own one of the products you want. I don't ever get to use mine anymore so maybe someone should contact me before buying that particular item.

I've always coveted a Lomo.

By the way, you need to log out of Amazon, return as a guest, search for your wishlist, and then cut and paste the link--as it is, the link brings up the wishlist of the one clicking on the link. Amazon is goofy like that.

I think this is your real wish list.

Ha, that's funny Josh. I forgot i'd made that. That is actually a wishlist i made before John and I got married. I got several of those books for John's birthday last year. I can't seem to find my wishlist after i've logged out. It's like i don't exist....

Have you heard of Stephen Hennock's landscapes? His success and popularity has really frustrated abstract painters.
