This was supposed to a pastoral vista of a lake at sunset that would be so beautiful that you would become psychotically jealous. Instead, it is as black as my heart.
Good: Bullet proof instax film works well with the Diana’s quirks.
Bad: Controls are not intuitive and it is easy to make expensive mistakes.
I was supposed to test my new Lomography Diana Instant Square by spending an elegant weekend in New Haven, CT but at the last moment, my trip was moved to the triumph of Albany, NY.
A while ago, I was obsessed with the idea of documenting places place with cameras that had some connection to the locations heyday. For my first location, I visited Franconia Notch with my Kodak Brownie No.2 camera.
I treated my family to a trip to New York for a pre-father’s day and mother’s day and we stayed at the EVEN in Brooklyn, NY. I love hotels with windows that open so I let fresh air in and listen to the sound of the city.
Last year, due to the fierceness of Hillary, I was able to stay at a very competent Hampton Inn located in Lake George, NY. Lake George is a famous summer resort in upstate New York that in winter is deather than my photography career. Without planning it, I discovered that the last Howard Johnson’s restaurant is located in the parking lot of the Hampton Inn. Lucky me! I didn’t end up eating there because the reviews were so horrible I couldn’t handle it. How horrible? So horrible that I ate at a mediocre indian restaurant across the street.
