    @shhquiet. When selecting a winner for this competition, could you please not pick a winner who has sent out spam asking hundreds of users to like their design? These messages are incredibly annoying!

  18. djramsay
    djramsay ·

    PLEASE STOP SPAMMING ME. I do not like and will not like your design. I have Voted and will not again. @shhquiet share the 250 piggies with the loom members with photos on their homepage who spend thousands of pounds to support lomography.

    scusatemi tutti per lo spam... sono nuovo nella comunity e non pensavo fosse un problema.
    non volevo infastidire nessuno e creare alcun problema.
    ho visto che alcune persone pubblicavano nei commenti liste di nomi e davvero non pensavo di creare alcun problema.
    Scusatemi per il disturbo.

    It's not like 5 or 6 people would have participated, or a dozen.. The fact is you received 261 contributions from people, and you haven't said a fucking word after finishing the contest. And it's almost a year since you posted this competition... I think 261 works aren't something to forget/ignore.

  39. lavale1974

    Coloring Outside the Lines with LomoAmigo Tim Kerr

    We recently had the great opportunity to interview our latest LomoAmigo, Tim Kerr. While his repertoire stretches back to the late 1970's and includes that of musician, artist, painter, photographer, skater and many other things, he just prefers Tim! We gave him a La Sardina DIY, which he not only added his own style to, but shot some excellent photos with as well. Rife with candid and thoughtful answers, we expect everyone will glean a nugget of wisdom and leave with a smile.
