I embarked on this Russian trip due to my love of Lomo. My journey to Moscow started with a flight from Taichung, with a transit in Hong Kong. The tour leader advised us to bring some thick pullovers but I didn't have a chance to use them as the temperature hit 40 degrees Celsius.
The local students told me that last July’s temperature is only 9 degrees Celsius, one can see that global warming is more serious than we can imagine. I didn’t see a lot of people using analogue cameras in Moscow, I thought everyone would be shooting with an LC-A or a Smena 8M. Like all modern cities, most camera stores only sell the latest digital cameras. With my Holga, the Russians might think I am old fashioned!
Everything feels right when I shoot with my Lomo cams in Moscow. Also, the weather was bright and sunny everyday, even a newbie like me found it easy to shoot. The sun doesn’t set till after 11pm, hence, I can still shoot outdoors at 10+pm. The only pity is that I didn’t manage to buy an LC-A in Russia, I will definitely come back to Russia for another Lomo tour in the future!
Like a quick-changing siren, a sunset has fantastic showmanship. It may come in a costume of luminous yellow one day, and a daring paint canvas the next. And of its various looks, five have been getting the loudest applause from all over the community.

Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
