The Love U U Chapel and Huts in Lang Tengah Island is made famous by the Chinese movie "Love U U - 夏日樂悠悠".
The chapel and huts were built exclusively for the movie set of “Love U U” in the summer of 2011. They were then left on the island after the movie’s shooting. And these provided the perfect location for LOMO shooting afterwards. ;)
The Love U U Chapel was originally built for a wedding scene in the movie. The public can now rent it for their own wedding ceremony as well!
It’s a chapel on the sea, isn’t it cool by having a wedding on the sea, feeling the winds from the South China Sea, hearing the sounds made by the waves, exposing yourself to the tropical sun, and weather, while exchanging your wedding vows with the most important person in your life?
The Love U U Huts were a bar and a chalet by the sea in the movie set.
However, they were left abandoned now. I feel the efforts put in by the workers in building the huts were a bit wasted, I personally feel that the management of the island should make full use of the huts. Nevertheless, they are good spots for lomographing too.
Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.
The Luck of the Irish is coming our way in a couple of days' time, so today, we encourage our fellow lomographers and intrepid travelers to explore the home of the St. Patrick's Day celebrations: the island of Ireland, and Dublin, one of its famous cities!
You can't forget a live performance by The Hives. The Swedish rock band is currently on tour and made a pit stop in Japan a few months ago. Check out the interview along with some concert snaps after the jump.
Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

This article is a tribute to the great Russian photographer, sculptor, graphic designer, and painter Alexander Rodchenko. He was a pioneer in the search for unusual perspectives, with extreme view from above or from below, and with an innovative use of the diagonals and tilted views in his dynamic compositions. For this article, I was inspired by his most famous photo, a woman climbing a staircase, taken in 1930, which is reminiscent of the famous Odessa stair of the film "Battleship Potemkin" by Sergei Eisenstein.
Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!
Hong Kong-based Bobby Sham's body of work is a testament of his love for large-format photography. Engaging in a craft made easier and more accessible with digital alternatives, Sham still outshines tech-savvy counterparts even if he does things the almost unpredictable, analogue way. Here is a gallery of Sham's indulgent large-format images, taken with vintage and original Petzval lens.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
