How to upload photos from a lomo camera — as asked by Googlers

I noticed “how to upload photos from a lomo camera” was listed several times as search engine terms on my blog stats page.

So, here it is!

It was incredibly easy. When I dropped the film off at the developers, I asked that the photos be saved on a CD. When I brought home my lomo photos and CD (and it felt just like Christmas, let me tell ya), I slid the CD into my laptop and imported them straight into iPhoto (yes, I am a Apple Addict). Then uploaded them to Flickr and here. 

Yes, it was that easy!

For non-Apple people I imagine it is very similar. Just slide in the disk and follow the directions to your photo application.

From now on I am not having the photos printed. I’ll get them burned to a disk. Less waste, fewer boxes of photos hanging around, and the CDs are thin and easy to store. I’ll only print off favourites.

Fish eye in the cemetary

Next week in Lomo Land: I’m almost done not only a roll of Fish-eye lens photos, but also the first roll of Oktomat film! This is the most thrilling part of Lomography — what weird, wild and original photos did I make. Can’t wait!!

One thing I noticed in the “Search Engine Terms” listing, y’all have an obsession with cats and gelatin salad. Me too! Preferably in separate bowls, please. Also, many people do click on my blog links especially http://www.cuteoverload.com and http://www.icanhascheezburger.com. That’s great! These are two of my favourite sites. The people running them are hilarious and always find the best cat pictures. I should be so hard working.

The only search engine term I didn’t understand (and I don’t want to, I think) is “hamster cake”. Ewww! I hope this is a line of cute Japanese manga or anime characters because I really don’t think hamsters belong in a cake. Maybe given a nice cake-like treat, but definitely not actually baked in one. If you or someone you know wants to include hamster in a cake recipe, please, drop the nice hammy and call PETA. They will talk you out of it.

Anyway, thanks for visiting vingada.com! I have a bunch of photos I need to upload but have been lazier than a cat since Christmas. I’ll get to those very soon. Hopefully I can include some cats and jello and possibly even hamster pictures to my flickr account. This year I plan on including more of my bike commuting adventures in Toronto. I hope to even have a road trip! Ooooh! I’ll bring my camera and band-aids.
