Some years ago we received a promotional CD-ROM of the LOMO PLC factory in St. Petersburg, Russia. Along with a lot of interesting facts about the history of this esteemed factory we've discovered one true gem: the Lomo Song.
We love this for all its combined random elements: an Enya-esque intro evoking meditation soundtracks, crystal clear children choirs, an 80s snare drum that seems to be out of rhythm half the time and a kind of lost 8-bit guitar solo at around 3:10 that sounds like played on a small midi keyboard. And still the song works phantastic!

Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
