50.000 + Lomographs - the biggest Lomohome ever!


A few days ago, our user mephisto19 uploaded his 50,000th Lomograph! None of our Lomohomes has that many pictures! Congratulations!

On December 8th mephisto19 uploaded his 50,000th Lomograph! Yes, all the zeroes behind the number “5” are supposed to be there! His Lomohome is the biggest we have ever seen.

Mephisto19 calculated how many pictures he had scanned so far and how many pictures he had uploaded in the past five years on a daily / monthly basis. A pretty epic calculation actually!

He started his Lomohome back in 2005 on the old lomography.com page. Only five years later, his home has grown from one to 50,000 pictures. So each month he uploaded around 781 pictures.This makes 26 Lomographs a day in 1488 albums. Each album contains 31 pictures. Besides all the upload and scanning work, mephisto19 also built 23 Lomowalls and has won 69 Awards! Divide this number through the five years he has been active here on Lomography and you will see that he has actually won one Award each month! And he has also shared his enthusiasm through 125 articles written by him in our online Magazine. Amazing!

Thank you Stephan!

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
