Summer hits and I'm shipped off to drive my little brother who happens to be an amazing tennis player to different locations so that he can play tournaments...not as a manager nor as a parent but as a sister who can be a slave under the hot sun and endures countless hours on the road so that the king may rack up points.
So I’m told that i’m going to be driving to Ann Harbor Michigan to take my little brother to a tournament… My first thoughts are what?!
1. I’m his sister not his mother
2. It’s Ann Harbor…
3. The drive is like 5 hours and who knows how many days I’m going to be stuck there.
Of course these thoughts are in my head because you do not ever argue with asian parents, especially when they’re eating.
So the next gear I pack up my bags and head out. Of course I bring my trusty polaroid camera because everyone should have a polaroid on call, especially if you’re traveling! And of course you need to take a picture before you embark on an adventure so my goofball brother gives me a nice pose.
I expected to be there for 3 days the most…because if he loses we go home. I must be a bad sister to hope he loses (sometimes). But after 5 days of waking up early and basically becoming a limousine driver you get used to it. And by the end worth it when he actually wins.

So here are a few tips, courtesy of the Lomo'Instant, that will help you to break the ice.
The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image. Such is what happens when one sees Suji Park's work for the first time. It’s as if you can actually hear and feel the details of each snapshot — the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the complex silence of nature or a dry and nostalgic solitude.

Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
