You might remember me mentioning previously that I had been chosen as one of the 10 finalists for the LoBlography Challenge. Each of us were sent a Diana F+ camera and some rolls of film and had 2 weeks to snap photos and post the results on our blogs, the person who received the most blog comments and likes would win the much sought after Lomo LC-A.
I've loved Lomo for ages and have had a lot of fun snapping away with my Diana Mini. Of course being film, rather than digital, means that the results are unpredictable. However most of the time you end up with really amazing photos with dreamy effects and crazy colours, but sometimes it can all go wrong. The photos I took for the LoBlography Challenge sadly all fall under the second category. I'm not sure exactly what happened. It could be a fault in a camera, a fault with the film, the photo lab or
Of course I'm disappointed (who wouldn't be?) but I still love Lomography and this hasn't put me off at all (nor should it put you off!). Rosie from A Rosie Outlook is also taking part and her photos are lovely. I've got until Wednesday before the challenge ends and I have to wave goodbye to the Diana F+ so I'm going to make use of this time and shoot a few more rolls and cross my fingers for some successful photos. I was looking forward to picking up my last roll of film today and being able to post some successful photos to inspire you all but instead I'm going to post some of my favourite photos taken by myself using my Diana Mini and also some of my favourite shots by others using the Diana F+.

The challenge ends at midnight on Tuesday. I'm not sure if I've lost all chances of winning the Lomo LC A now, but incase there's still a glimmer of hope that I'm still involved in the challenge then I'd really appreciate it if you could leave a comment or even just click the 'like' button below.
EDITED: Had to add a 'love' button also as every time I got to 170 likes it deleted them and went back to 140. :( Please click 'love' instead.
