Now we're back with another user rumble! Are you ready for the next challenge? This week is all about signs and symbols. You think this is easy? Our previous rumble winner 007-0815-styler suggests it should be obscure, or maybe a little historical ...
“Old symbols, hidden symbols, symbols from days of yore …” 007-0815-styler suggested when asked for a rumble theme idea. Maybe you can find something etched in a tree trunk (like a lover’s promise), scrawled on walls (care of your favorite pre-schooler), or inked in paper (doodles in class)?
Prize(s): The winner gets to pick the next theme and gets a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes

Branded as "The Reanimated Film," KONO! Film is hand-rolled and made of special materials which are rarely (or never) produced for "normal“ photography. Rather, the materials were intended for the motion picture industry and the results can vary depending on how the film is used. Learn more in this interview with the founder of KONO! Film, Uwe Mimoun.
In the early part of the 19th century, lantern shows were the equivalent of movies. Photographs were hand-printed or transferred on glass plates, which were then projected on to a wall or cloth screen.
Mel Brackstone introduced herself as an "old woman with a love of the surreal." Her energy is palpable; with the soft delicacy in her photos, she comes across as an old soul that sees through young eyes. She is self taught and lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, She discovered the Petzval Lens in 2014.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
