It is very rare that I leave the house without a camera or cameras, but sometimes you don't want to lug around the SLR or a clunky old medium format camera. That is where the Lomo LC-A comes in handy as it fits easily into your coat pocket..
The camera was originally produced in St Petersburg by LOMO in the 1980s and has since gained a huge following through the Lomographic Society. The camera itself weighs vertually nothing and is pretty cheap and plastic looking. It has auto exposure and The lens is focused by selecting one of four zones (0.8 m, 1.5 m, 3 m or infinity). The resulting photos can be unpredictable, with overlapping frames, soft focusing and heavy vignetting.
The unpredictability of this camera is also part of its charm. When processing the film you never really know what to expect which can yield plenty of happy accidents. The shots in this post were from one roll film taken in December using Lomochrome Turquoise film just while out and about walking my dogs, George and Betty.
