We all know that films started in black and white. Back when coloured films weren't still available and all we had were grainy monochromatic colours to view fancy moving images.
But having no colour doesn’t mean having no life! These films are a classic and they sure are beautiful! Sometimes, we even prefer black and white films to achieve a certain feel and a certain taste of nostalgia.

In the early part of the 19th century, lantern shows were the equivalent of movies. Photographs were hand-printed or transferred on glass plates, which were then projected on to a wall or cloth screen.

Inspired by summertime in bloom, the new Lomo’Instant Kyoto Edition is the latest addition to our creative instant photography line-up! With its intricate floral and peach design, this special edition camera is reminiscent of beautiful summer sunsets in Kyoto, a city adored for its picturesque shrines, temples and nature scenery.
Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.
