We all live analogue lives. Despite all the technology and convenience we can have in this life, some still prefer to live it the "old school" way.
And aside from using our feet for transport, riding a bicycle is the closest thing to making this life happen. Why not, right? It’s free transport and exercise in one! Healthy and cheap, indeed! That’s why it’s no doubt why several Lomographers are bicycle riders, too. And sure, when you’re in that two-wheeled mode of transportation, why not snap a memory?
So in this week’s mini-series of “Gallery of Guilty Pleasures” we chose 45 well-Lomographed moments of you and your bike. How I hope nobody got injured in the process of taking any of these Lomographs!
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!

Film Photography Day 2015 is nearly here and we’ve got loads of raucous parties planned around the world at our Lomography Gallery and Embassy Stores! Everything you can imagine and in the most analogue way possible — live unplugged music, vinyl DJs, in-store raffles, analogue flea markets, scavenger hunts, workshops, panels of photographers, instant photo-booths, competitions and loads more!
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.
The Diana Mini is turning five years old this month! Through the years we have seen this sweet and petite 35mm camera transform from a classic analogue beauty to a blinged-out snapshooter and everything else in between.

Which among these limited edition Clones is your favorite?

Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
