The green grass, white clothing and classic colours - dark green and purple. The only Grand Slam event played on grass. The 125th Championships in Wimbledon 2011!
How old is the Wimbledon Championships?
The 2011 Wimbledon Championships is the 125th time that the all-England Lawn Tennis Club has hosted The Championships since the first tournament in 1877. Today, the Wimbledon Championships remain the only Grand Slam event still played on grass.
Wimbledon is proud of its traditions. The green grass, white clothing and the club colour – dark green and purple build this classic sporting heritage. The finest players from over 60 countries competed in the championship events in 2011, attracting an attendance of around 450,000 people. Through print, radio, and television, the championships have been followed by hundreds of millions audiences around the world.
In addition to the tennis matches, ‘the queue’ for tickets is another classic event during the championships. Wimbledon remains one of the very few major sporting events where people can still buy premium tickets on the day of play. The endless queuing for tickets and camping in tents have become a spectacle every summer in Wimbledon.
Can’t wait to visit Wimbledon and join the queue for the 2012 championships?
It's time to get experimental With Lomography, Efke and Ilford Films! Transform your photographs into fascinating snapshots that evoke fantasy and magic. It’s the stuff that dreams are made of: green foliage becomes white, blue skies turn as dark as the night and purple colors taste sweet like candy dust.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.
The latest addition to the Lomo’Instant family! Inspired by the Icelandic midnight sky, Get endless creativity, take multiple exposed instant snapshots, experiment with long exposure and light painting shots!
Lomo Lubitel 166+ is a match to the classic beauty of black and white photography. Perennial scenes of city life and nature get the right amount of light and dark, thanks to trusty exposure settings. The glass lens, with its sharp vision, helps photographers get tonal and evocative imagery. These photos from all over the community are prime examples.
Those long, frosty, dark nights are finally behind us. It's time to dust of your Diana F+; wipe down your LC-A Wide and get shooting again!

For most people, winter means staying indoors and bundling up in warm clothes. But for a group of monks in Japan, the season means an opportunity to discipline themselves in a ceremony that requires them to wear minimal clothing and splash cold water on themselves.

The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.
I've photographed this city many times in the past—in color, black and white, and even in redscale. One day in March, the streets of Manila once again became my subject. Only this time, they turned into otherworldly places as the LomoChrome Turquoise drastically shifted its colors...at least on film.
In case you missed the news, the LomoChrome Purple film that you know and love is now available in 16mm format, in limited quantities only. If you have a 16mm camera or know someone else who does, make sure to share the news! This beautiful film delivers a nostalgic, dream-like effect in purple tones. To illustrate, check out the movie by Julian Hand after the jump ...
