Peaceful Island, Somaemul

9

Short but unforgettable sweet journey. Somaemul means tiny island, from 'so' which means little and 'Do' as island.

It’s a tiny island, called Somaemul-do where only 34 people are living now. Korean letter ‘So’ means ‘Little/Tiny’ and ‘Do’ means ‘Island’ so ‘Somaemul-do’ is ‘Little Island of Maemul’ It’s far from Seoul, capital of S.Korea almost 4~5 hours by automobile but many amateur/professional photographers visit there because of the beautiful scene & peaceful atmosphere. It’s a small place but very crowded for the holidays & summer vacation in Korea.

I spend there a great moment with an old Lomography friend in last autumn. If you’d like to stay there more than 1 night, lots of different residences are available in this island!

    The World According to Herr Willie: Salvation Mountain

    Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.

    Meet our LomoGuru: kelvin_wx

    As a game art designer, creating worlds and characters from his imagination is of second nature for Chen Chao. However, drawing with light and recording once-in-a-lifetime moments with his trusty analog cameras seem more magical, on a personal level. His LomoHome, which is filled with portraits of beloved subjects, most especially that of his little boy Liangliang, speaks volumes about his eagerness to preserve fleeting memories through photography.
