Happy World Cat Day!

10

To commemorate World Cat Day, which falls today, August 8, we've rounded up some of the most popular photos of our feline friends taken by our fellow community members!

It was reportedly back in 2002 when *World Cat Day* was established by various animal groups led by the International Fund for Animal Welfare. We have to say, though, that it’s been a long time coming since cats have been companions to humans for thousands of years! Today we’ve come up with this little tribute for our furry loyal pets, Lomography-style. Have a look at these adorable snapshots taken using the different Lomo cameras!

    Happy Cat Day!! Never forget that cats are important!! 1347 to 1351 was the Black Death because the superstitious decided cats were minions of Satan, killed them, and rats overran Europe, bringing fleas and bubonic (and pneumonic) plague!! So, love your Kitty!!!!

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
