I just like hockey. I mean not only ice hockey but bandy or Russian hockey! Unfortunately I live where you can’t see it live. That’s why every season I try to go to some match in another city. This time I took my favorite LC-A.
Bandy is a remarkable game which is playing outdoor air. The first match in Russia was in 1898, on March 8. The flowering of Russian hockey was in 50s-80s years of XX century. That time bandy was notable for its involvement. It became a “substitute” to football in winter. A lot of teams were all over the Soviet Union. There was a large attendance at all matches. Equipment of hockey players is minimal. Only ice, stick, skates and ball! It is a beautiful game which is the quickest in team sport.
For this I decided to go to Moscow for the final of the European Champions Cup match between “Dynamo” (Moscow) and “Västerås” (Sweden). The match was held in an indoor skating-rink at Ice Palace “Krylatskoye” in November 2009. No freak of nature can disrupt my plans. “Dynamo” won with a score of 4:1! I want bandy to be included in the program of Winter Olympic Games. Then many people could play and see this wonderful game!
P.S. There was a bandy team in the 70s-80s in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) called “LOMO”!

In the last decade she has spent in the USA, Maliha has stayed at six different cities in five different states.

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.

Inspired by summertime in bloom, the new Lomo’Instant Kyoto Edition is the latest addition to our creative instant photography line-up! With its intricate floral and peach design, this special edition camera is reminiscent of beautiful summer sunsets in Kyoto, a city adored for its picturesque shrines, temples and nature scenery.
Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.
