Lewis y Harris ó Leòdhas agus na Hearadh en las Hébridas Exteriores es la isla más grande de Escocia. Lewis ocupa la mitad superior y su terreno consiste casi exclusivamente en llanura. Aquí es donde se ubica la única pequeña ciudad de la isla, Stornoway (Steòrnabhagh). También se puede disfrutar del monumento megalítico de Calanais, que tiene más de cinco mil años de antiguedad.
Harris (mi parte favorita de la isla) se diferencia mucha de Lewis. De hecho, parece incluso otro planeta. Es un conjunto de colinas rocosas y playas imensas y desiertas. Un día acabamos envueltos en niebla, caminando por el inquietante “carril de los ataudes”. Es la antigua ruta que se extiende a lo largo de un valle hasta el mar, donde se encuentra la turbadora iglesia de San Clemente, que lleva allí más de mil quinientos años.
Harris es donde se fabrica la famosa “Harris Tweed”. La tela favorita de la Casa Real inglesa (que no es la de las faldas escocesas). Está hecha a mano en unos pocos talleres de la isla. Calienta un montón y nuestra querida manta nos salvó la vida en varias ocasiones.
With the help of social media, Chicago-based photographer Jeff Phillips was able to learn the identity of a couple that starred in the thousands of Kodachrome slides that he had chanced upon at an antique shop. Find out the fascinating story after the cut!
With the thousands of analogue cameras and gear that repairman Harry Mueller has under his care, his workshop is almost already a museum on its own. Have a glimpse of this fascinating place after the jump!
In 1972, the Belgian photographer Harry Gruyaert did a very interesting pop art experiment using a broken color television, producing a very interesting series of blurry and color-altered images. This was a very interesting pre-Lomography experiment worthy of a tribute. Take a look after the jump!
Where are you headed to this summer? Where I'm from summer has ended too soon, so I'm still daydreaming of sand and seafoam. I decided to check out the archives for some cool beach-y snapshots and came across a lot of interesting underwater photos! Check out my finds after the jump; hopefully this list will inspire you to grab a Fisheye Sub or a Krab, along with your Fisheye cameras and LC-A+, for some underwater adventure.
In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.

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.
What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
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.
