lomohome for the holidays.

since i couldn't be physically home for the holidays (read: air canada is fucked, and toronto transit is unreliable), my family did an amazing job of making my toronto christmas as enjoyable as it could be. i was in contact by phone with everyone on all the major days, and received the best care package i could imagine on the eve of new year's eve.

among the gifts i received was this gem: a lomo fisheye no. 2 camera. for those who don't know, a fisheye lens is a circular wide angle (170 degrees, approximately) which is supposed to mimic the view of a fish (see picture, above left.). i love the camera, and, since the lomo website now accepts paypal, predict a slight addiction to purchasing slide film and hotshoe flashes.
