    Hmmm... Only problem here (besides the fact that I am a nurse and never worked in an office) is the fact that I dont live in Brasil :-P

    @ Mandi: portuguese is pretty easy to learn, piece of cake actually, or should I say "canja de galinha" (it actually translates as chicken soup, but its the portuguese equivalent of piece of cake... not that portuguese people or brasilian people call chicken soup to pieces of cake, not even to egg puding, but I guess you got the idea :-D )

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
