About a month ago I discovered the wonderful world of Tumblr. Soon after, I decided to dive right in and set up my own. That’s how Strictly Lomo came to be.
Strictly Lomo, as the name suggests is a Tumblr blog dedicated to Lomography. I figured why not base my Tumblr on my passion? It’s bound to keep my interest going. So that’s what I did. At the beginning I admit it was a little time consuming posting pictures, crediting them one by one, etc. But then, one glorious day I realized that there’s a Tumblr button under and each and every photo posted by users on Lomography.com – that’s made my life so much easier and everything all the more practical!
I’m still waiting for my Tumblr to take off to be quite honest. I have about 30 or so followers at time of writing, which is very little, but it’s only been a month and I’m still hopeful. Maybe one day LSI will reblog me and it will make me famous, but until that day I wait and enjoy what I’m doing without making too much of a fuss about followers, likes and being reblogged.
There’s some excellent lomoshots on Strictly Lomo so do come visit, you never know, you might be on it too! Having said that, if your photo is on and you’d like me to remove it just drop me a line.
The month of September has just rolled in, which means that the world's biggest fashion capitals are already gearing up for Fashion Week. To mark the occasion, here's a set of sumptuous .gif work from the Tumblr blog FASHGIF!
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.
Two years ago I swore to myself, I'll be coming back soon!" This October my chance finally came and I flew for the second time to New York City to visit my dear colleagues in the Lomography Gallery Store New York. What I didn’t see coming, though, is the opportunity to test a new secret film during my trip.
We are always hunting for creative ideas on how to open up new shooting possibilities and it doesn’t get any better than when we discover something simple which works like a charm right away. Recently, the idea was raised that perhaps the Diana+ Splitzer would be compatible with the Lomo’Instant – Lo and behold, it is!
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

A few months ago, Lomography made available a whole range of pinhole cameras made out of premium wood. Interested in knowing how good they are, I brought the medium format one on my last trip to Germany.
Something happened on our way to the beach. We were about to hit the surf when we came across a parade of Piggies, all waiting to be spent promptly in the Lomography Online Shop! And now, 10 of these Piggy Points are frolicking in the sand, all yours for the taking! So what are you waiting for? Dive into the Online Shop and pick the item that you’d like to spend your Piggies on.
It was a cold and cloudy winter day in 2012 when I came up with the idea of compiling photographs of people's faces. I decided that the most personal way to do it is through instant shots. They are one of a kind and you immediately have something in your hands.
My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
Ever since it opened in the '60s the Jigokudani Yaenkoen park in Nagano Prefecture, Japan has been visited by people from all over the world to observe the famous snow monkeys, or the Japanese Macaque. Lomographer ihave2pillows had the wonderful opportunity to see the snow monkeys up close a couple of years ago, and here are some of the photographs that he had shared with the community.
