You always wanted to contact a Lomographer in Portugal? Meet someone while on vacation in Buenos Aires? Wondered if there are other people from your hometown active on this site? With our new Homes feature these questions might be answered…
Now you can browse users by countries or cities – right now these lists are a bit empty (well, actually quite empty) because to protect your privacy you need to activate what others can see about you. To do so simply visit the settings page, use the checkboxes to make your country and city public in your home (and maybe your age and sex while you are at it).
Why should you be doing this?
Well, first to let others know where you are from. Second to win some piggies. At the beginning of next week we will pick 20 lucky users (10 from each category – country and city) at random to be given 10 piggies! Please note that our caches might need some time (at most some minutes) to update.
Have fun and let us know what you think about this feature – and also post the link to your country and city in the comments once you are featured!

Young Helen Mirren playing a corset-clad model. Juliette Binoche and Julie Delpy in early training with Jean-Luc Godard. Lena Olin and Helena Bonham Carter in literary adaptations. Before crossover projects, these actresses had to pay their dues—in bit parts and breakout roles.
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!
