As a dirt jumper, my second home is my local trail... Ever since some stupid people had us close down our former trail (the Jurassico, maybe you read my location on it quite a while ago...), I had to move to another second home!!
The Radio trail is quite a tiny space, and at first view not such a cool place for shooting… In fact when you enter all you see are some dirt piles (which are in fact kicks and landings), and a huge and ugly antenna (some cell phone stuff)…
Yet the good is still to come, as we use these jumps for acrobatic bike jumping! I don’t carry my cameras so often to the trail cause I know they most probably stay in my backpack as I will be riding all the time, but when I happen to take one out, it’s quite fun to play with these dirt mountains and the bikers tricks… Most people who come to shoot at us have digital cams, but lomos allow you to be creative in a different way! So if you pass by, come to see me and my friends at my second home!!
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.
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

As a scientist, Pierrick is often curious about the mechanism behind how things work. His first brush with analog photography is no exception. Eager to know more about the inner workings of a film camera, he started from scratch and tested his DIY skill with the Konstuktor camera.
On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.
This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.
