New cards and new toys

The last couple of weeks or so have been a flurry of new toys and things related to photography.

First up, I acquired a Lomo Lubitel 166B and have had one film through it already. I have to say I’m pretty smitten with it. As much as I love my digital SLR there’s “something” about shooting with a camera that’s so low-tech. There’s something just a little “different”, in a good way, about how the results look:

Easy enough to take everywhere. Plenty of auto stuff for those moments when you don’t want to be faffing about while, at the same time, manual control for those times when you do.

I ventured out with it over the weekend and I’m pretty pleased with the results so far.

And, last but not least, three cards that I’d ordered turned up last Saturday:
