2000 LomoLocations and Going Strong

9

It has been a long and arduous journey but here we are, 2000 locations strong - and counting! Let's take a trip down memory lane first before we unveil the big 2000!

As Lomographers, we like to travel. We like to walk, shoot and see where our feet takes us. From the corner market, a nearby beach, all the way to the Arctic, we’ve chronicled each step taken and each smile given with our precious Lomo cameras. The Locations are our way of identifying and showcasing the merry mix of unique places and locales that you have visited and at the same time, would like to visit in the future! It’s the Lomo communities’ very own travel guide that caters to all things Lomographic.

Believe it or not, we’re actually at our 2000th location! Time sure flies when you’re having fun. Before unveiling it however, we’ll whet your appetite first as we take a trip down memory lane and check out 20 of the best, weirdest, intriguing and most interesting locations to date, spanning all four corners of the globe!

Mount Bromo, Indonesia – Well know for its spectacular sunrises and majestic views across to Semeru volcano in the south.
Odaiba, Japan – A man made beach, lots of shopping joints and the coolest architecture pieces are just some of the things you can expect from this funky artificial island in Japan!
Altai, Onguday – This is a mountain range in central Asia, where Russia, China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan come together, and where the rivers Irtysh, Ob and Yenisei have their sources.
The Tunnel, Austria – A hidden relic from the past long forgotten and now found. This tunnel was made back in the second World War
Okavango Delta, Botswana – Loosen yourself up and ride a mokoro boat and enjoy the life and wildlife in Botswana’s most famous nature reserve!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    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.
