A Different Visualization of One's Likes in the LomoHomes


In 2011 exactly 9,184,059 different items were liked on Lomography, a majority of those being photos and articles. Right now, you can see a person's photo likes in their LomoHomes, but what if you wanted to see which articles you have liked? Or someone else's? So, we thought about a different visualization of one's likes.

One of my liked photos – it’s by filby and has nothing to do with this article really…

So wanna see how it looks like? Right now it’s only unlocked for me, just wanted to get some feedback of you before we roll it out! You can find it at www.lomography.com/homes/recurving/likes – let us know in the comments what you think of this!

    Like it, it's very "artistic" :)

    love it. You know i love a pinboard! ;)

    Super. Articles should come with a tiny preview pic too I think. Would make it more visual and clickable.

    I like it! sometimes I want to look for an article I liked but it´s very difficult to find it. With this it´s going to be easier.

  5. panchoballard

    Love it! It does indeed look more like pinboard. Very strong.

    A really nice idea and I like the layout, but it would be nice to also have an option to categorise it by article type, or maybe camera or film, similar to the tag clouds you get on some of the photo pages.

  7. goomba

    I like, this is indeed handy for searching for an article you liked, and I think it looks better too.

    That looks cool! Looking forward to when it comes to all of us! :D

    very cool! i agree with @simonh82 that some categorizing options would be helpful, like an option to ee liked photos, blogs, tipsters, or walls

  14. vgzalez

    I'm with @traaaart and @simonh82, would be great if we could apply filters or perform searches. I love the pinboard design. Quite "Pinteresting". :)

  15. vicuna

    Cool! But would be great to have the choice between different options of presentation with filters...?

  16. civcivli

    me likey! i wonder when will it be available for us.

  17. kneehigh85

    I like it a lot!

  18. twinklecat

    I agree with @webo29 and @simonh82 and @vicuna. How would the user's profile and photos be displayed?

  19. trw
    trw ·

    Very nice!

  20. adam_g2000
    adam_g2000 ·

    Like @traaaart I think it would only be useful if you could filter it. I agree with @vicuna also. I would want to see it perhaps as a leader filterable by photos and articles. I would be upset if the current basic view of photos was removed as it allows you to see those you've liked very quickly with no/little scrolling.

  21. yopanic

    really cool... :p

    Looks like a good idea; I'd like to see all the different things broken up into different tabs. Oh are we going to get a Blog ticker tab on our home face page? Like were Completeness percentage is and all that.

    Like the photos but not too sure about the articles, maybe they need more of a border or something? Kinda reminds me of a big lomo-wall of likes!

  40. gelibee

    @all: just to be sure: to "unlock" the feature just like this article… then it should work on your likes as well!

    I love this feature! I had been wondering why I could access all my liked photos in the Likes section but not my liked articles. I also love how we now have a complete view of all the photos instead of just thumbnails

    Oh Wow, I love the way you can now see how some days you just had an eye for one theme or colour or article focus, BRILLIANT!

  48. maxwellmaxen

    i want that too! since i have read the article long ago!

  49. bug

    It's awesome! I was only thinking this morning I would love a way to see all the articles I liked, sometimes you read a few, like them, and forget some of them or can't find them :( Some more filtering would be good. I hope it's available for everyone soon!

    Lomography's Little Lessons: Film Speed

    Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.

    The Pleasure of Shooting Live Music Shows with the Petzval Lens

    There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.

    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.

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!
