While waiting in a dessert shop, I saw the music video for Katy Perry's "The One that Got Away" on TV and spied a Polaroid camera! In this digital age, even the stars go back to analogue. Take a closer look after the jump.
One of Katy Perry’s newer songs opens with her dressed as an older woman in a contemporary mansion. The entire video is basically a flashback of her past with another man, played by movie star Diego Luna. The two young lovers are both artists and enjoy sharing life and art together. At one point in the video, Perry whips out an old Polaroid and begins taking photos. Come take a look:
I’m guessing that the camera in the video is the Polaroid Land Camera 450, judging from the look of it.

People seek extraordinary experiences while traveling, but not everyone gets to have an adventure of a lifetime. When lomographer Stephane Heinz (popularly known as vicuna in the Lomography community) saw the opportunity, he took the chance to travel and live miles away from his hometown in France. He and his wife, Kathi, came back home with a luggage full of valuable experiences and life lessons. Vicuna tells us about his four-year adventure in French Polynesia in this travel special.

Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
