Mephisto's November Rumble - Holy Cow


Mephisto's November rumble will get community moo-ing in delight. That's good a clue as any as to the theme of this month's rumble!

Credits: mephisto19

I like cows! I really don’t know why but they are so cute with their huge eyes and long eye lashes. Around the place I grew up there were many cows (flat german country side) and visiting my parents in law I try to go out in the fields to take some cow photos.

I’d like to go to India one day only to take photos of cows (that is the story behind the title, I do not want to offend anyone of any religion!) . Also my cousin Kerstin and I have a word play. In german cow is “Kuh” and you say cousin Kuh-si-ne, so she is my Q (Kuh) and I am her Q. She is also collecting cows and I will surely forward her the link to all your submissions!

So the theme for my November Rumble is clear: cows.

Three letters (c o w), three photos and I prefer Lomography cameras!

Submit a maximum of THREE analogue photos, not digitally manipulated and ADD ALL META DATA (at least three tags, location, film, camera,…).

    Photo Stories: Away With You by lomomowlem

    It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Salvation Mountain

    Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.
