Diana Mini

I just brought myself a Diana Mini
It takes 35mm film so will be a little cheaper to work with. So my photos will soon start looking this cool:

All photos are ones I have found off the internet taken with a Diana Camera

This is an excerpt taken from my favourite Lomography website about the Lomography style photographs:
A Lomograph holds a charm all of its own. Somehow, everything is amplified, making ordinary objects stand out, enhancing details that would normally go unnoticed. Characterised by ever-changing variables such as the mysterious vignettes that frame the shot, light leaks, lo-fi grain, beautiful blurs, the magical balance of contrast and saturation … just to name a few.
A combination these factors and a healthy touch of the unexpected go into making each Lomograph unique. Essentially, Lomography embraces the element of surprise that only analogue film photography can bring and wholeheartedly celebrates the outcome.
Experiment with different kinds of films, and try different tips and techniques, such as cross-processing (x-pro) – it works well with Lomographic cameras!

Find article here in the about Lomography secion of the website:  

So many of my friends ask me what Lomography is. Above is a bit of description on the style of photos that I have fallen in love with. Its described so well by the person that wrote it. I guess the photos look rather vintage like and I have a love at the moment for the vintage world. Anyways I hope to eventually give you some of my photos taken with the Diana Mini. For now here are some photos I took and edited with a program to make them look like the Lomography style:
