It’s the birthday of J.R.R. Tolkien today and to celebrate his life and works, PYHOF features some of the heart-thumping, awe-inspiring and high fantasy tracks from the movie series!
The Lord of the Rings has got to be one of the best (if not THEBEST) fantasy series of all time. Everything that J.R.R. Tolkien penned into each book from The Hobbit to The Silmarillion is just spot on. The master of mystical tell-tale created wonderful worlds and beings for us to feast upon in his imaginative books.
These tracks from the Lord of the Rings series match the often majestic scenes in the movie adaptations. Galloping horses give out a thunderous message to orcs and goblins that riders are coming. Different daunting scenes come to mind when the fiery mouth of Mount Doom appears on screen.
Such wonderful composers, musicians and artists combined their talents to match J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterful creations. The foremost flag bearer of fantasy stories would have been proud to hear and see his magical world come to life.
Happy birthday to you, Sir Tolkien!

Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window.

And as I've written there I wanted to take a similar experiment with color film, which would change the perception of the environment where people live. Read more after the jump!

Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

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!
