The Great Wall of China.

5

"Whoever never been to the great wall, is not a hero". A translation of the slogan craving on the big rock.

Two thousands years ago, when there wasn’t technology like today, how could this great wall be built? With a great mind of an emperor, millions of loyal workers, a great wall was construct. The mystery of the construction of the wall is amazing.

In fact, it began as independent walls for different states when it was first built, and did not become the “Great” wall until the Qin Dynasty. Emperor Qin Shihuang succeeded in his effort to have the walls joined together to fend off the invasions from the Huns in the north after the unification of China.

The wall were built to defend the country from being attacked by enemies, this is the world’s most longest wall. The construction was simple incredible, it’s built by man’s hand, without help from any machine, the will of the Chinese men, is definitely a lesson to learn to everyone. Moreover, the Great Wall of China is now one of the amazing 7 wonders in the world.

The steps is still stand strong even until today. The wall sit still to show the world, when there is will, there is the way. It’s awesome to be there. I am the hero now, cause, I’ve been there, once.

    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.

    Rarely Seen Images of New York Showcased in Duane Michals' 'Empty New York'

    New York City has long been synonymous to skyscrapers, throngs of people both locals and tourists, neon lights, entertainment, and all things loud and hip. It is, after all, a metropolis, a melting pot of cultures - the city that never sleeps. However, back in the 1960s, Duane Michals was able to capture these photographs of a New York that many people has rarely seen.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    Kick-Off Country: Kicking Off the World Cup Blues in Paris

    Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.
