I went to Java early this year, mostly central and east of the island. I'm just amaze by the woderful nature that you'll find in East Java. I'll feature 2 wonders of Java. the Brobodur temple near Yogja and Mount Bromo.
Barabudur or Borobudur temple is one of the 7 wonders of the world, its a 9th-century Mahayana Buddhist monument near Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. The monument is both a shrine to Lord Buddha and a place for Buddhist pilgrimage. Evidence suggests Borobudur was abandoned following the 14th-century decline of Buddhist and Hindu kingdoms in Java when the Javanese convert to Islam. Borobudur temple in the morning is the best time to take pictures. Checkout the rays that came out from the corners of these stupas..
Mount Bromo is an active volcano and part of the Tengger nature reserve, in East Java, Indonesia. Above sea level 2,329 metres (7,641 ft), not the highest peak compare to its neighbouring volcanoes. Mount Bromo sits in the middle of a vast plain called the Sand Sea and the sand is black, a protected nature reserve since 1919. The most common way to visit Mount Bromo is from the nearby mountain village of Cemoro Lawang. From there it is possible to walk to the volcano in about 45 minutes. We start our journey to Mount Bromo at around 4am to catch the sunrise. Its an amazing experience to get the best views of Mount Bromo to the Sand Sea below and the surrounding volcanoes are at sunrise. If you plan to go Mount Bromo early in the wee hour, don’t forget your jacket & gloves coz the temperature can reach down to 10 deg celcius :D
Manchester based band Oasis rose to fame in late 1994 with their debut album "Definitely Maybe" which went straight to number one in the UK charts. They went on to have eight UK number one singles, eight number one albums and whole host of awards, dramas, fights, fall outs and new members in between. Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993 - 1997 was the first Oasis exhibition of rare and iconic photographs, artifacts and memorabilia from the early years of the band. Some of these photos were take by Tom Sheehan who had his own exhibition at our Lomography Store East.
Photographs with sprocket holes exposed are practically a dime a dozen these days but, of course, this wasn't the case more than 50 years ago. However, former freelance photographer Michael Ciavolino was already able to create one of the earliest examples of this technique back in the early '60s in his groundbreaking photograph called "Boat Ride, Rye Beach." Find out the fascinating story behind this photo, as well as how and why he did it in this exclusive Lomography feature!
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.

You might remember experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats for the CenturyCamera, his ambitious project which involved installation of 100 ultra-long-exposure cameras in and around Berlin, Germany "to continuously document 100 years of municipal growth and decay for scrutiny and judgment by future generations" between 2014 and 2114. But today, Keats goes a step further and begins yet another groundbreaking and unprecedented project with the Millennium Camera.
