For this time around, it's all about natural-occuring scenes mixed with the highest levels of contrast only known to exist in the Lomographic world!

Jumping on to the next month of our photographic calendar of Lomography is the month of May. Surely enough, it seems like almost everyone took advantage of the mild weather conditions since the lighting conditions is too perfect for photo snapping making it more enjoyable to for a Lomographer who loves to take his/her cameras outdoors and be spoiled with the brightest colours of this month has to offer.

Evidently, the photo that came to be the most favourite is this one taken by gnarlyleech wherein a very lush scene is unfolding right in front him and moreover, his camera was also there to see it – definitely an epic way to appreciate one of the many wonders of nature!

As usual, it wouldn’t be complete without our pool of very crazily Lomo-addcitive community, so here they are with their of snaps which also made it to this month’s top list!"

    Glastonbury As Seen Through the New Petzval 85 Lens by Taio Konishi

Japanese photographer Taio Konishi photographed this year's Glastonbury with a Petzval 85mm Lens, and here are some of the photos. He also talks about his Petzval-meets-Glastonbury experience in this exclusive.

    Meet our LomoGuru: kelvin_wx

    As a game art designer, creating worlds and characters from his imagination is of second nature for Chen Chao. However, drawing with light and recording once-in-a-lifetime moments with his trusty analog cameras seem more magical, on a personal level. His LomoHome, which is filled with portraits of beloved subjects, most especially that of his little boy Liangliang, speaks volumes about his eagerness to preserve fleeting memories through photography.

    Celeste Ortiz: Analog Possibilities

    Photography has been described as a time-stopping device, something that “freezes” an action. This moment on-pause is the most salient; all conversation about the picture will tend to pin down the beauty of that second. Celeste Ortiz’s photos make us think of something else. A sense of continuation.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
