Lomo Learning Curve… I think I’m queasy?

In the hunt for retrotacular signs and other curiosities I’m also meddling a bit with lomography, so bear with me.

It’s a wild ride and where better to test my stomach then at the fair? I try to take Diana + on all my outtings, most recently Encinitas, Point Loma and Orange County.

Here are the Highlights:

My Grande Learning Curve for my Plastic, Lomography, Diana +, Toy camera:

1. Remove the lens cap. This is funny to you, I know, but it’s a real issue apparently for me.

2. I just realized that you can adjust the focal length on the lens! Wow, that was simple. 🙂

3. A tri pod is a good thing when you don’t have a flash.

Diana Goes to the Fair!

This weekend I took my Diana Camera to the outdoor market in San Diego’s Little Italy and then to the County Fair… boy did we have fun! Dennis came along too!

The highlight of my 2 rolls of film were the two shots I took Pinhole style, I was pleased that they turned out.

I’ve also created a new group on my Flickr Page that will have ALL of my Lomography in one nifty spot… ooh ahh!


Get off your lazy ass and go experience something. For christ sake, it’s the holidays!

Oh my – the holidays can be overwhelming but don’t let that stop you from getting out and seeing some local art. Hey, it’s great for gifts too for all you last minute procrastinators.

Here is my list of things to go see:

1. Art Produce Gallery in North Park. I missed the Christina Lee Exibit, would have been nice but oh well. The current show might be swell to see? Parents might like it, uhm?

2. Seminal Projects in Little Italy. I get to peek in the window of this place all the time, it’s just below my house. Great stuff here, different. Make sure to preview before taking Aunt Lilly. The current show is a Video Exhibit from “Joe Dark Shadow Theater”SeminalJoeDarkShadow

3. Quint Contemporary in La Jolla. For all you N Co. folks, this isn’t far to drive and it will be worth it. I like this Jay Johnson guy, the show is like being in a box of mismatched chess pieces. Ends on Dec 31st.


4. And here, you don’t even have to get off your lump to check this out. Good look at some SD artist. I quite like them myself! Sofa Art Surfers click here. 🙂 This is a select few from a past show at Zedism Gallery.


Now there, you have some holiday activities that don’t consist of the Nutcracker and fruitcake.

Have a wonderful week.
