new book! :D

 

Mike and I were wandering around Queen St. again on Sunday. The Lomography Gallery Store was a place we’ve been wanting to visit for a while (Y’all know how I like taking photos, especially wonky ones! :D). We looked at all the cameras and then I came across this book, Lomography City Guide Hong Kong! A full-colour book filled with lomographic photographs and descriptions of photo-worthy places in Hong Kong (but where in Hong Kong is not photo-worthy, I wonder?). Some places I’ve visited and some I’ve never heard of – so intriguing, and brought up so many fond memories.

It didn’t have a price on it but I just assumed that I couldn’t afford it – for all 272 full-colour pages sewn together plus two ribbon bookmarks – it was a pretty fancy book! I mean, the Lomography shop was cool and all, but it looked like one of those “if you have to ask about the price you can’t afford it” kind of place…

So I put it down, thinking I might be able to find it cheaper on Amazon.

Turned out that Amazon didn’t have it.

Instead, I found the book in the Lomography online store, and guess how much it’s listed for?

$19.90.

I mean, that’s a pretty good deal, right? 272-page, full-colour, in both English and Chinese?

So the next day after work I went back to the store and made a bee line to the coffee table where the book was displayed, and brought it to the checkout counter with a big silly grin on my face :D

Yay, new book! :D

Not sure when I’ll visit Hong Kong again but next time I go I’ll knew where to visit!

 

Have a great day, everyone!
