Now, I'm well aware it's a hipster cam. But whatever.
So why get one when I have a digital camera all ready? For the nostalgia! For the film! For the photos I can blow up and make cards and framed art with for my Etsy shop! (The last point is most certainly how I'm justifying such a weird purchase)
Anyway, I've all ready decided on the camera model I'll be getting for both the Boy and myself: La Sardina.
their "Copernicus" model is super pretty!) I think for the Boy I'll more than likely be going with their 8Ball, Seoul Edition, or Sapphire Serpent designs... can't decide yet.
Anyway, I'm very much inspired by the beautiful lomography pictures I've stumbled across on Flickr.

I don't see myself becoming a camera or photography buff in the least... Let alone go through hundreds of thousands of camera rolls in the process of playing around with something like this. I honestly want some nostalgic, beautiful pictures of my anniversary, some fun photos to send to my family through snail mail, and some great images to use for my Etsy shop. If anything, if I end up with boxes and boxes of photos afterwards, I'll have considered it a personal fail! I honestly believe that in this day and age, it's more important to be picky when it comes to film photography... digital indulgence has ruined us!
