Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

I won, ya’ll, I won! 

I have entered many photo-related blog giveaways. Never have I ever won a darn thing. That is, until last month.

A lovely Memphis photographer/designer/blogger/all around awesome lady named Sophorn was given a Lomography La Sardina to try for herself and one to give away to one of her readers. A chance to win a camera? I’m all about that! I crossed my fingers and hoped and prayed that I’d win. As I stated in the comment I left in order to enter the contest, I’d been drooling over this camera for awhile and:

I may or may not have spent a lot of hours this spring looking at a billion photos on Flickr and the Lomography site that were taken with La Sardina cameras…In the name of research, of course.

So imagine my delight when I woke up one Tuesday morning to an email from Sophorn, saying I’d actually been randomly selected as winner of the La Sardina! It seriously made my week! Or month, for that matter. I had my choice of the Mobius or Domino design. While I think the purple and yellow on the Mobius is so pretty, who could resist that striking black and white design on the Domino?? Certainly not I! The camera arrived a week and a half later, just in time to be with me when I was on a mini staycation, a mere half an hour from home. This little getaway yielded some cinematic moments (literally, we went to see a movie at the Orpheum that day!) and what better way to capture those moments than with a pretty little wide angle toy camera??

I think Sophorn did a bang up job of giving the tech specs and history on the camera, so I will point you over to her blog to read about it. That means I can just jump straight into sharing the images from the first few rolls I took with my new La Sardina!

Roll, Numero Uno (the best of the bunch) – Holga brand (actually Foma) black and white film, 400 ASA 

Roll, Numero Dos – expired Fujicolor 200

Roll,  Numero Tres  (oh so cloudy day)- Holga Brand 640 ASA film
