    @kylethefrench @chippo @pangmark @lostlittlekid @dogma @ihave2pillows @bingo_biene @gregoriobruning @dikasapi has anyone of you ever received their camera? I didn't @mayeemayee

    @kylethefrench @chippo @pangmark @lostlittlekid @dogma @ihave2pillows @bingo_biene @gregoriobruning @dikasap @mayeemayee; and I wrote to lomography and no answer..

  35. pangmark
    pangmark ·

    @kleinerkaries mayeemayee said she wrote to the Virginia team (passing the buck) but I got nothing. I know they call their shops embassies but do they really have to act like a government department? So, I sent a message to the general enquiries on the LSI website. I got an email back. They didn't have the camera I won in stock! I could pick another Sardina though. O.K so now all I had to do was pick it up from the shop. Then came the next hurdle. I had to pay them 5% of the retail cost.

  36. kleinerkaries
    kleinerkaries ·

    @pangmark you had to PAY for the prize you won? how rude is that?!

  37. pangmark
    pangmark ·

    @kleinerkaries yeah I know what's up with that right? Obviously not big on customer service/satisfaction.

  38. dikasapi
    dikasapi ·

    @kylethefrench @chippo @pangmark @lostlittlekid @dogma @ihave2pillows @bingo_biene @gregoriobruning @dikasap @mayeemayee @kleinerkaries i already received my prize from this rumble on march after i message lomography on facebook and then i sent an email to lomography's customer service.. maybe you guys should do that..

For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.

    A Vintage Gallery of Art School Classes

    If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement. To see fellow artists labor over the tiniest detail, to feel the depth of their ambition, to be part of this silent energy—these are priceless perks. The following photographs of University of Art and Design from the 1920s let us sit in on some of these busy classes.

    Kick-Off Country: Kicking Off the World Cup Blues in Paris

    Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.

    The Pleasure of Shooting Live Music Shows with the Petzval Lens

    There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
