PYHOF: Born in the U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteen

There’s something infectious and totally engrossing with Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 album “Born in the U.S.A.” that we can’t just point out. Wait, we got it. It’s Bruce all along.

This installment of PYHOF is more than just a playlist feature; it’s an ode to a 1980s classic that thundered through speakers and amps during the time. Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.” just celebrated its 30 years and that’s some serious mileage that new artists may have a difficulty to top.

Even after three decades, numerous music industry gimmicks, piracy laws, and revamped stints; “Born in the U.S.A.” can still thump your eardrums and make your fingers do rhythmic taps on your table. From the title song to Bruce’s electrifying “Dancing in the Dark,” to the feel-good kick of “Glory Days” to the succinctly seductive “I’m on Fire,” Bruce Springsteen knew how to write songs that would satisfy even the sonic waves of the future.

Springsteen’s 1984 album may be three decades old but it’s still relevant up to now. Anyone who refuses to stomp his feet to “Born in the U.S.A.” is just selling himself short and plainly missing out.

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!

    Falling In Love With The LC-A 120

    There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
