Ever wondered how it would be like to spend a vacation with psychedelic, magical creatures? Have a look at this crazy video by Seattle’s kimo!
Oftentimes the company you have can make or break a trip. In “Sharkbunny goes on a vacation…” our protagonist boards a plane and arrives at his destination, which turns out to be a house inhabited by “magical” creatures. He then goes with them on a walk the surrounding forest until they reach a highway, and we can only assume that the folks inside the cars that pass by must be so surprised to see this odd group. This debut Kino flick by Kimo Muraki (*kimo8*), who’s also a musician, is both trippy and hilarious until the very end (watch out for the credits to get what we mean!). It features a song called “Tuvan Song” by band Jumping Sharks, whose members also appeared in the video together with the guys from another band Slow Bunny.
Here in the Lomography magazine we often venture to the community’s Movies section, where we’re able to stumble upon shorts that do not only depict interesting storylines but are also well-executed. The new Kino Stories series aims to put the well-deserved spotlight on these gems, so keep those creative juices flowing and tell us your story! Who knows, you just might get featured in an upcoming installment!

You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.
