    Ah, damn, I only have Kodak and Ilford B&W shots, so I won't submit. Anyways, I think the latest portraits of @earlybird are just insane and would deserve to win (if I was to chose, hehe)

    well... if you would add LOMO in the title of that rumble it would be more clear directly "... shot with LOMO B&W film...." because that is also what shows up in the direct submit box next to the photos...

    I have photos I would like to submit. I used Lomography B+W negative 100 film (before earl/lady grey came out)... But in the rules above it only mentions Earl Grey and Lady Grey... I imagine I can still submit them?? Since it still is a Lomo film??

    'Aniki-Bòbò': A Tribute to Manoel De Oliveira

    This article is a tribute to the great Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who died last April 2. With an old Praktica loaded with a roll of black and white film, I captured so enthusiastically his city Oporto (Porto) with its famous Ribeira district, the most characteristic of the Lusitanian town. It was here that more than 70 years ago, Manoel De Oliveira created a timeless masterpiece: "Aniki-Bòbò"!
