Our good friends at MTV FORA, MTV Canada’s blog about fashion, beauty and lifestyle, are feeling extra excited for Valentine's Day, and so are we! Valentine’s Day isn’t just about being sappy with your loved ones – There are also those funny Valentine moments that really make the memories. That’s why we decided to make the theme for this rumble all about the awkward couples!

Perhaps it was just a bad angle, or you really just are that awkward, it doesn’t matter when you’re in love! I’m sure we all have that one, or multiple photos, maybe of yourself and your significant other, maybe of your friends and their partners. Regardless of who it is, we want to see it! Show us your funny Valentines by uploading your photo from your Lomohome here, or through MTV FORA’s email and you could win some neat prizes with Lomography Canada and MTV FORA.

    On-Time Rumble: Show Us Your Perfect Timing

    There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.

    Watch: 'One Day In A Lomo'Instant' Video

    A lot happens in a day, made up of those little moments that we usually take for granted. So we asked some of our friends from the Lomography team to capture some instant photos throughout one day, using the Lomo'Instant Camera. The result? A collection of memories that they could catch, hold, and cherish forever. We compiled their instant moments into a cool video, which you can check out after the cut!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
