This is my last year trip. I go to batu gajah to see last tin dredger in malaysia. Tin mining was extensively in the Kinta Valley of Perak some decades ago. Today it is a sunset industry and most tine mines have closed down. You can still find many mining pools, but this is the only dredge you see. It's an exhibition item near Chendrong, Batu Gajah.

For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.

For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

The characters in Argus Paul Estabrook's work in paper cutting are the stuff nightmares are made of: unusual forms, jagged edges, arms outstretched as if seeking salvation—all emphasized further by the plain white background on which they are placed. Combined, these details paint a picture straight out of Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy."
