New Playground Experiment: Colors and the Kids

21

We've just added another experiment to our playground: browsing photos by colors. Which has nothing to do with kids, we just like the Cat Power song.

Credits: peach0303

Head to our playground to start browsing photos by color. We’ve also prepared a rainbow view, though this one might take a while to load. Right now we limited it to around 10,000 photos, but more will come soon (it just takes a while to calculate the colors). Let us know what you think of it in the comments!

Update: we’ve added three more modes: black and white (showing a gradient from dark to light b/w photos), dark (showing all dark photos) and light (showing all light photos). Have fun!

    There used to be one looooooooooooong wall in the old blog where photos were sorted after color.... Will there be something similar? That'd be great! Very good though and I must look longer at it

    Coloring Outside the Lines with LomoAmigo Tim Kerr

    We recently had the great opportunity to interview our latest LomoAmigo, Tim Kerr. While his repertoire stretches back to the late 1970's and includes that of musician, artist, painter, photographer, skater and many other things, he just prefers Tim! We gave him a La Sardina DIY, which he not only added his own style to, but shot some excellent photos with as well. Rife with candid and thoughtful answers, we expect everyone will glean a nugget of wisdom and leave with a smile.
