Anyone have a Lomo Kompakt Automat
camera? They seem to have a bit of a cult following. I got mine in December and just made my first Lomo homepage : http://www.lomohomes.com/rhawkes
There're loads of personal photo sites up there with interesting/bizarre photos if you like that sort of thing.

Don't own a Lomo, but I have been to the Lomography shop and exhibit in Vienna, Austria. Looks like great fun.

I'd like to see the exhibit. Maybe on my parole...
The camera is fun once you get the hang of it (I was previously point and shoot). Every roll of film throws out a few suprises. I like the fact they look like cold war spy cameras.

The pics remember me a bit of the time the wall felt and Freaks bought up old stock GDR ORWO films. They had real unreal colours.
After seeing your shots, i'd experiment with neon-signs in dusk, if i had a Lomo. Seems to be no Camera for bright daylight.
