My wife Sally and I just spent a week in New York City. Good fun all around.
One day, after emerging from a Subway station on 23rd st, we noticed a cool store at 106 E23rd Street, NY 10010
It is a Lomography Gallery Store. http://microsites.lomography.com/stores/gallery-stores
I’d heard of Lomography and being photo geeks from way back, I/we had to go in.
A “few” dollars later we emerged with two plastic cameras which we immediately loaded with film and started shooting.
I also could not resist the “Spinner 360” We went back to get that one too. Here are a couple of pictures I shot with the Spinner:
The indoor shot was shot by rotating the camera body by hand. The primary way to operate the camera is to pull a ring which which winds a spring. Letting go of the string spins the camera to take a shot. It made me laugh the first time I shot a picture!
Here is a link to the main lomography website.
