Take your Horizon cameras out for an afternoon walk around the busiest street of your city and show us a sweeping streetscape snapshot that will make us swoon!
We are all aware of the unparalleled capability of the Horizon cameras to produce spectacular wide panoramic images. Whether it’s a majestic view of purple mountain ranges or a calming scenery of the setting sun, we can rely on both the Horizon Kompakt and the Horizon Perfekt to render nothing but the best wanderlust-inducing shots.
But this time, instead of those exotic paradise and beaches, we want you to show us how these two powerhouses will fare with shooting the colorful city life and its streetscapes. From a newly built bus station to an almost torn down building. From rigid street signs to artsy graffiti walls. From traffic lights to store’s neon lights. From an open public park to the dark, gritty alleys. Show us what gives your bustling street its unique urban character through your Horizon snapshot.
And to make this rumble a little more exciting, we want you to share the story behind your entries through a short blog post (three to five sentences for each entry will do). Write up your story (don’t forget to include the photo) and publish it on your User Blog. Then, post the link to your blog entry on the comments section below.
The best entry and story will win a whooping 30 piggies plus a special badge to be pinned on his or her LomoHome!
One Grand Prize winner of 30 piggies and 5 runners-up of 10 piggies each. All winners will get a special badge in their LomoHomes.
Maximum of three submissions per user.
Don’t forget to tag your photos (film, cameras, accessories, and at least three tags). Photos without these tags will not be accepted.
Submissions without the blog entry will not be considered.
Show us what it’s like to have the lens of the Horizon cameras sweep the scenes of your streets! Good luck everyone! We’ll be waiting for your entries!

With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers.

Did you catch the solar eclipse that happened recently? Word on the street is that it even resulted in a total eclipse in some areas of Europe, making it a pretty rare occasion for the folks that got to see it! We're guessing that some of you even had your cameras to catch the whole shebang on film — which is why we're throwing a competition for the best eclipse and sun inspired shots out there. Come on in and check out the details!
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!

New York City is the busiest and most populous city in the USA. Home to 8.5 million people, it is a massive melting pot. The city embraces many different cultures, which makes it home to many immigrants, too. Let's take a look at NYC through the lens of the Lomo LC-A!
Common advice tells us that Tokyo is best experienced at night. The neon lights of Ginza come on, Shibuya Crossing gets crammed, Ropponggi lets loose. Reverse the advice and we’ll get something like a palate cleanser. The Imperial Palace, Shinjuku Gyoen and small parks peppered around the city offer relief, from morning until late afternoon. Even ordinary streets appeal to tourists. We suspect those secret ramen spots add to the charm.
Join us for the opening night of Closer, an exhibition by fashion photographer Joe Prileszky on 12th November from 6pm. The Carnaby Shopping Night will also be in full swing with street music, store discounts and some early festive fun.
The next time you find yourself wandering around town with your Lomo'Instant camera, here's a neat trick that you can do: choose a specific area and quickly snap an instant photo. Once it develops, hold it in the exact position or angle where you took the instant photo, and take a standard photo using your favorite camera. Does it sound confusing? Ah, well ... let's just show you how it's done! Check out the photos after the jump.
