Fall is in full force here in New York City! We celebrated the brisk weather and color changing leaves with some pie and cider. We even had some visitors from the Lomography Gallery Store Toronto! Check out our silly instant photos!
The Blue Hour is a weekly event for all Lomographers to enjoy some social refreshments and entertainment. Stop by the Gramercy Lomography Gallery Store each and every Thursday from 6pm and make some new friends! As you may know “The blue hour” comes from the French expression l’heure bleue, which refers to the time after the sun goes below the horizon and the sky goes into deep blue for a while. The time is considered special for photography, because of the quality of the light at this time of day. This event is always FREE! If you are a DJ, musician or performer and would like an opportunity to perform at Lomography’s Blue Hour please email your information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Be sure to join us next week for a very special “Gold Hour”

Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
