Lomography La Sardina Cameras

Lomography recently released two special edition western-themed cameras with oxidized brass bodies. The 35mm cameras are finished with etching and laser engraving and are being sold for a cool $199. Not cheap by any means, but they would look mighty good if you happen to be planning a desert photo shoot. Speaking of, check out this amazing photo of Mick Jagger hanging out in Joshua Tree (obviously not taken with the aforementioned camera).

Style Find: Bandit Brand Tees
Filed under: Style Find | Posted by:

On the heels of the Idle Hands post, we found it necessary to introduce you to Jen McMillan’s Bandit Brand tees. These vintage styled organic tees are the closest to perfection you can get without blowing your mind. No cheesy brand names or logos, just good ol’ all-American graphics on super soft tees made in the USA. Plus, they make gorgeous jewelry. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

You can buy the tees, which retail for $36 a pop, via their website or through various retailers across the US. For the complete list of stores, click here.
