I bought myself a little present in a moment of self pity, and it really did make me feel better. The anticipation of it’s arrival cheered me up, and now that I have it, I’m pretty ecstatic. I actually think money can buy you happiness, for a little while at least, and I’ll take it when I can get it.
So, what is this present, you ask? It’s this!
It’s a lens for a toy camera, by Lemography called the Diana, and it came with a handy dandy adapter for my Nikon. I’ve been lusting over the vintage-y effects you may have been seeing around, thanks to apps like the iPhone app, Instagram. They make taking gorgeous, lo-fi pictures really simple, which is awesome! But, I don’t have an iPhone (too much money, but more happiness?), so this was the perfect thing. You can read more about it here (and also drool over all their cool stuff).
It pretty much makes your everyday life look like a dream world. I’m in love. Here it is in action!
