A True Analogue Love Story Competition


This Valentine's Day, let's play Cupid and help us fill out the rest of the Lomo Love Story, happening in Twitter!

There’s a Lomo Love Story that’s waiting to unfold in Twitter. As is often the case, it’s a matter of boy meets girl but that’s just the beginning, the twists and turns are for you to decide. Help us write “A True Analogue Love Story" – we have started it off, and so now we invite you to carry on the romance.

Here’s How:

Go to this link or search LomoLoveStory where you will see the how this tail begins:

#LomoLoveStory A lovely girl on a lovely day was waiting for something interesting to happen
#LomoLoveStory Nearby a guy, dreaming of love was unaware, soon he’d meet the girl he had been looking for.

Now to decide what will happen next! Simply upload or select a photo from your album that you think would take our two love birds closer together, or maybe make a good bump in the road and click the Tweet button below.

First, you will see the following “A photo by LomoHome Name http://bit.ly/ajXuTD #lomography”
To play the game simply leave in your LomoHome Name the bit.ly link and change #lomography to #LomoLoveStory
Now you will see your Tweet appear as the next line in the story just like plainjane http://bit.ly/ioL8T #LomoLoveStory

So tell us, what will happen next?! Amour is a funny thing and love can take a lot of twists and turns.

Remember! The photo and text should work together in telling the story. It can be funny, sweet, or an out-of-the-blue twist – as long it complements what happened previously. We’re all dying to find out what happens next!


  • 5 Piggies for contributing to this beautiful little love story! Each person gets one time 5 Piggy Points for making a contrabution to the #LomoLoveStory.
  • You must, login to your Twitter account, add #LomoLoveStory and leave your community name so we know where to send your hard earned points.
  • The Lomography City Guide Vienna and Fisheye2 Pink will be the grand Valentine’s Day prize to the 3 Lomography community members that posted the most Tweets to the #LomoLoveStory!
  • Game ends Friday February 12th 2010 at 23:00 CET
  • 5 Piggy Points will be given & 3 Winners will be announced in the blog Tuesday February 16th 2010.

We hope you have fun!

    @nural twitter.com/search?q=LomoLoveStory follow this link & i hope it will get clearer =) we are asking people to write a story via twitter. each person posts a photo and the next line in the story - maybe you played it when you were a kid and each person went around in a circle finishing each others sentences..
    @007-0815-styler some competitions are only posted on the international site and others only on the German.

    reading it yesterday very fast i thought that you have to write your OWN little lomo love story and NOT to continue one (that has become more a monologue than a diaolue/story by many people insopiring each other), so i thought about small LomoLoveStories, some in english, some in german i want to add to this post:
    - Love Of My Only Life. Our Vows Endlesly Say The Origin Respecting You (LOMOLOVESTORY)
    okay... i know.... but... :D
    and now some german small stories, the love between cameras and films:
    - "Ich liebe Dich!", sagte die Kamera zum Film bevor sie ihn sich einverleibte.
    - "Deine Lochung macht mich an", sagte die Kamera zum Film und ließ ihn sich um ihre Spule wickeln.
    -"Du wickelst mich um deine Spule", sagte der Film zur Kamera.
    -"Du ziehst mich raus", sagte der Film zur Kamera.
    - "Ich liebe es, wie deine Räder in mich greifen!", sagte der Film zur Kamera bevor er weitertransportiert wurde.
    - "Schmieg dich an meine Spule", sagte die Kamera zum Film, "Ich werde dich belichten"
    - "Nimm mich!", sagte der Film zur Kamera, die gerade geöffnet wurde.
    - "Ich fühle mich erleuchtet", sagte der Film, der aus der Kamera kam
    - "Klack", das unverkennbare Geräusch der LC-A ist eine Liebeserklärung, wieder und wieder.

    I'm having heaps of fun with this, such a great idea guys!!! I think a good rule would be to add in the rules that you can only post one at a time, then it would be perfect. Hope I win SO much, I really want the pink fisheye!!!

    Playing Detective: An Interview with Derek Woods, the Man Behind the Controversial True Detective Photo (NSFW)

    Derek Woods is an Los Angeles-based photographer who previously got involved in a controversy surrounding a photo that was used in the opening credits of the HBO TV series "True Detective." Coincidentally, Woods happens to be a member of the Lomo community, and it became vital to interview him regarding the issue. The interview was successful and was published in May last year. His current project, 365 of Lomography, will chronicle his day-to-day exploits with Lomography cameras. To jog your memory, and to re-acquaint you with Woods, we are republishing our interview with the controversial photographer. Please take note that some of the photos are NSFW.
