Double Up For Valentine Day

36

Cupid has just stung us with his arrows of love and we have to share it with you! In the real world you may have found your soul mate and we are sure that you will just have the most romantic time together come February 14th! But you are also part of one of the most exciting, diverse and creative communities on the whole world wide web!

Cupid has just stung us with his arrows of love and we have to share it with you! In the real world you may have found your soul mate and we are sure that you will just have the most romantic time together come February 14th! But you are also part of one of the most exciting, diverse and creative communities on the whole world wide web!

Thats why this year we want you to pick your own Lomo Valentine! (This is not cheating btw!) We know that you Lomo guys have had your eyes on some of the pretty Lomo girls out there and that some of you Lomo ladies just digg the way some of our Lomo gentlemen move with their cameras! Valentines should not only be about couples either and we value your friendships as well. Either way its time for you to get together and bring your friendship to a whole new level! But lets keep it analogue shall we? And what’s more analogue than doubles?

The way this works is the following:

  • Ask someone “out” (does not have to be boy/girl)
  • Shot a roll of film of yourself with a romantic surrounding
  • Send the roll to your valentine who then shots the second layer of themselves in a romantic setting
  • You will be united on your negatives :)
  • Once you are done – send Lucas an email (lucas.jakobsson@lomography.com) with your pictures

Of course we got some prizes in hand for our newly found sweethearts! The best doubles will each be shipped the newest Diana F+ clone Mr.Pink

Will you be my valentine?

    Cool Idea... To bad I have absolutely no time for shooting lately and already 2 doubles pending...
    I have a question reguarding the doubles though... I tried a few times to submit a blog entry for "doubles with you" but it won't work out... Any clue about what I'm doing wrong? Or is it a bug from the beta??

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    Travel Stories: The Bolivian Highlands by lonur

    My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
