My 1st Lomo Cam

I remember the first time I saw these types of cameras was in the Kinokuniya bookstore located in Takashimaya some years back.
But did not have the thoughts of getting any... until last week when I visited the Page One store.
The above photo was taken outside Page One store at Vivo City yesterday.
They have these cameras on display and some books relating to lomography.
One thing that sparkle my interest in lomography is also their "10 golden rules of lomography".
Which I feel, will make photography fun in a way.
I'm not sure how my photos will turn out now and only taken about 10 shots since yesterday.
I've loaded the camera with an expired Fuji Provia 35mm film, let's just hope the photo will turn out well...

10 Golden Rules of Lomography
1) Take your Lomo everywhere you go
2) Use it any time - day & night
3) Lomography is not an interference in your life but a part of it
4) Get as close as possible to the objects of your lomographic desire
5) Don't Think (William Firebrace)
6) Be fast
7) You don't have to know beforehand what you captured on film
8) Nor afterwards
9) Try the shot from the hip
10) Don't care about the rules

This is a cool camera shop. Highly recommended!
Shop is well stock up with wide variety of cameras, lens, cam bags, books...etc.
I've got my eyes set on 3 different cameras.
The SuperSampler, Diana and Black bird.
I was at first very confused over the different variety of cameras.
The friendly and informative owner was there to help out and patiently answered all my queries.
Now that I've figure out most of the camera and their effects.
I decided to get the SuperSampler that takes 4 panorama shots on one photo!

I like the deco of this shop!
