Tin Hau Festival falls on the 23rd of March of the Lunar Calendar, there are big-scale parades all over Hong Kong. As this year is also the 40th anniversary of Yuen Long's Shap Pat Heung, the size of the parade is unprecedented!
As Hong Kong used to be a small fishing port and the inhabitants are mostly fishermen, before they head out to the sea, the fishermen would pray to Tin Hau, the Goddess of the Sea, for a safe return.
All the parade contingents will gather and set off from Yuen Long’s Fung Kam Street, passing by Kau Yuk Road before reaching Yuen Long Stadium. The public can watch Lion Dance performances at the stadium. After the parade contingents had completed their performances, they will offer their prayers at Yuen Long’s Tin Hau Temple. The annual Hong Kong festival is a great opportunity to learn about local traditional cultures. On the day itself, there are a lot of foreign visitors enjoying the performances!
On the next 23rd of March of the Lunar Calendar (2nd May 2013), please join me in this cultural celebration and partake in the Tin Hau Festival parade!
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.
Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.

Ouagadougou is the capital of Burkina Faso. 1.6 million people live there when 20 years ago there were only 700,000; that is to say, the incredibly quick growth and the stunning density in this city shows today.
Armed with disposable cameras, a number of people affected by homelessness in London trooped out in the streets and captured life from their individual perspectives. That was in July; now, 13 photographs have been selected via public vote and will be featured on the upcoming calendar by Cafe Art, an initiative that "[showcases] artwork created by people affected by homelessness or are socially vulnerable."
