We’re guessing folk singer and actor Burl Ives was probably coaching James Dean on how to play the flute-like instrument in this photo, no?
This candid behind-the-scenes photograph was taken at the set of the Elia Kazan-helmed film, “East of Eden” (1955), in which both James and Burl appeared in. In an nutshell, its plot can be compared to the Biblical story of Cain and Abel. “East of Eden” is known as one of the three films topbilled by James, and the only film released before his death. Here, the iconic young actor played the role of Cal Trask while Burl was Sam the Sheriff.

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.
