Zöe just had an amazing birthday this 2010 and you could really tell how successful it turned out and what a blast it was by taking a peek at her square shots!
A few months ago, our Lomo Amigo Christophe Dillinger had teamed up with us in pursuit of publishing Square Magazine's new book and asked everyone in the Lomographic community to show one’s year in square. A kind of a competition that calls for images strictly taken with the format we’re all familiar with – the square, each attached with stories of the photographers has to tell.
And to complete the list of our winners it’s finally Zoe’s turn, who is somewhat jumping like a happy kid with her new Lomo camera, let’s take a look:
It all began in May 2010 where I was given a Diana F+ camera and a roll of Fujifilm 400 for my 24th Birthday. My first pictures were taken in the Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa where my boyfriend and I chased pigeons, got lucky with a piece of graffiti and knitted Stephen!
In June I went to a Monkey sanctuary where the best ‘ooh’ expression on a monkey was taken! On a boiling hot 28th June I travelled to Barry Island, where my boyfriend ate A LOT of ice cream. On the 1st of August I took myself and Diana F+ on a 4 hour train journey to Gateshead to see my best friend Marc, the angel of Gateshead ;-)
The last pictures I have taken this year are of my weekend in London, in September. I took Diana for a ride on the London Eye and learnt all about evolution at the Natural History Museum with Charles Darwin.
My year so far with Diana has been fantastic!
I only hope she can fit in my bag at the end of the year for when I go to Lapland!
The founder of The Pop-Up Pinhole Co., Kelly Angood, has been handcrafting pinhole cameras from scratch since 2010. After developing a huge online following from one of her early pinhole designs, she embarked on a mission to design an affordable, functional pinhole camera that could be constructed all in the comfort of your own home — and it had to look great too! Following an incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign, her mission was realized. Read on to see how it happened and what's next for Kelly and The Pop-Up Pinhole Company!

“Mommy, no!” Angela squealed as she tried to push the camera away from her face. Thankfully, Anita managed to take the shot and hold the gadget tightly, keeping it from harm’s way. It was already the third time her daughter reacted in such an averse manner at having her photograph taken, and by now she’s gotten really curious.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind.
Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!

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.

In 1951, the Festival of Britain was organized as a way of boosting the morale of its citizens just a few years after the Second World War ended. The festival opened on May 4 and was basically a celebration of the British arts, science, and history. One of its most popular attractions was the Telekinema, described as a "state-of-the-art" cinema operated by the British Film Institute and seated up to 400 viewers.
