800,000 seals shouting is a scene you cannot avoid shooting.
Cape Cross is a cape in the South Atlantic on the coast of Namibia, on the C34 highway some 70 kilometres north of Hentiesbaai, 1,000 miles from the southern tip of Africa. Cape Cross Reserve is situated 150km north of Swakopmund on the west coast of Namibia. The reserve is the home of one of the largest colonies of Cape Fur Seals in the world.
The first thing to think about when you get off the 4×4 is: “What a smell” and “What’s that sound? Are they killing a sheep?” Then, when you reach the shore the view is awesome. Really! 800,000 seals standing there, laid there as if they were dead, resting. All you see is spots moving, shouting… Some of them go hunting. It’s funny who seals move. It’s one of my favorite animals. It’s a pity the smell of rotten fish is so strong… This place is a MUST. I think you cannot get so close to so many seals anywhere in the world. I was said that there’s a man that breaks the rules and rides the waves of cold water there once a year. Of course, he gets arrested but I’m sured he’s happy while he plays with the seals.

Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
No need to leave the comforts of your homes to enjoy a magnificent view. From sleek architectural lines to foggy rural scenes, this month's roundup of stunning lomographs got you covered. Did any of your favorite images made it to our list?

Having a respectable career photographing social, political and economical matters, Philip Wolmuth is capable of starting a dialogue with the public via his thought-provoking photographs.
Going through the collective of images on his latest work, it seems impossible not to be instantly affected by the rawness of the emotions captured within the images. The passion, the anger, the commotion, the rebellion, the fervor, the shouting, the devotion; his work is inebriating. It's as if the images are screaming at you and, for a short while, you are transported to the Speakers' Corner without actually setting foot on that location.
Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires a certain amount of discipline. For it to be coherent, one must keep his focus throughout the entire process - from shooting the scenes to editing the clips. With that, we are truly grateful for the effort that these lomographers put into making these LomoKino movies.
