Lomography Konstruktor DIY camera kit

One of my favourite blogs is called Uncrate, the site is a collection of ‘Gear for guys’ I’m not too sure if it’s good for me (or my wallet) as I end up wishing I owned a lot of stuff they post.

I first saw the Konstruktor mentioned here on Uncrate and I instantly fell in love, the concept of build and using a DIY film camera sounded awesome.

So what is it?

Lomography’s Konstruktor gives you the opportunity to easily build your very own 35mm SLR camera from scratch.

C2C – Down The Road

Try something new for 30 days

So roughly a month ago I saw TED talk entitled ‘Try something new for 30 days’ – Here is said talk:

As I mentioned in my previous post since getting to university I have been all for trying new things, but when there’s so much to try and plenty of work / revision to be getting on with. It’s easy to forgot to try new things and you end up slipping into the same old mundane routine. The approach that Matt puts forward is that the changes don’t need to be anything massive, just something simple to start off with, especially as it’s only going to be for a month. What is important is to choose a positive task that is small, repeatable and takes no more that 15 minutes of the day.
