I dropped my Lomo LC-A camera one unfortunate day when I was in New Zealand a few months ago. It just slipped out of my hand, sailed through the air 5 feet and landed hard on the sidewalk. The front plate around the lens came off and the back popped open exposing my film to the beautiful sunny day. I lost all but a dozen photos from the roll. With the help of some black duct tape, I managed to reassemble the camera and continue shooting. These were shot while I was in Wellington and I must say I quite like the light leaks.
I bought a used Lomo LC-A on eBay because I couldn’t afford an LC-A+. Unfortunately, despite the seller claiming the camera was in great condition, it was not. The film counter doesn’t work and there’s something wrong with the shutter. It randomly does not fire. I’ve tested this camera with fresh batteries and I can’t reproduce the issue consistently. The shutter truly does not regularly fire. It’s completely random. Therefore, I have no idea how to fix it. All I can do is take two shots of everything in the hope that the shutter fires for at least one photo. Anyway, these are from the first roll I ran through my LC-A.
