Lubitel 166+: Get Waist-ed!

The Lomographic Embassy of Manila unveils the new Lomo Lubitel 166+ — a medium twin-lens reflex analogue camera that allows you to shoot from the waist level.

The Embassy will also hold the Asian Lomography Faces exhibit were numerous Lomographers from Southeast Asian countries showcase their work.

It’s truly a feast for the eyes, and ears as favorite local bands such as Pedicab, Sandwich, and Sleepwalk Circus will perform!

Save this date: 07 May 2009, Thursday at 8pm, and head to the Lomographic Embassy of Manila at 146B Jupiter St., Bel-Air, Makati.

See you there!

Chalk it up to surfers to name a place after a confection. Cloud 9, possibly the best, most consistent surf break in the Philippines is named after a local chocolate bar (which you can buy in the small stores smattered about Cloud 9 and General Luna). Located in Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte in the Philippines, Cloud 9 gained a faithful surf following in the late 80s and continues to lure surfers from around the world.

I shot these with two Superheadz 110 cameras, the fisheye Demekin and the standard Noah’s Cam. Unfortunately these cameras don’t come with telephoto, so no photos of surfers.
