A True Analogue Love Story Competition

This Valentine's Day, let's play Cupid and help us fill out the rest of the Lomo Love Story, happening in Twitter!

There’s a Lomo Love Story that’s waiting to unfold in Twitter. As is often the case, it’s a matter of boy meets girl but that’s just the beginning, the twists and turns are for you to decide. Help us write “A True Analogue Love Story" – we have started it off, and so now we invite you to carry on the romance.

Here’s How:

Go to this link or search LomoLoveStory where you will see the how this tail begins:

#LomoLoveStory A lovely girl on a lovely day was waiting for something interesting to happen
#LomoLoveStory Nearby a guy, dreaming of love was unaware, soon he’d meet the girl he had been looking for.

Now to decide what will happen next! Simply upload or select a photo from your album that you think would take our two love birds closer together, or maybe make a good bump in the road and click the Tweet button below.

First, you will see the following “A photo by LomoHome Name #lomography”
To play the game simply leave in your LomoHome Name the link and change #lomography to #LomoLoveStory
Now you will see your Tweet appear as the next line in the story just like plainjane #LomoLoveStory

So tell us, what will happen next?! Amour is a funny thing and love can take a lot of twists and turns.

Remember! The photo and text should work together in telling the story. It can be funny, sweet, or an out-of-the-blue twist – as long it complements what happened previously. We’re all dying to find out what happens next!

    @nural…)moLoveStory follow this link & i hope it will get clearer =) we are asking people to write a story via twitter. each person posts a photo and the next line in the story - maybe you played it when you were a kid and each person went around in a circle finishing each others sentences..
    @007-0815-styler some competitions are only posted on the international site and others only on the German.

    reading it yesterday very fast i thought that you have to write your OWN little lomo love story and NOT to continue one (that has become more a monologue than a diaolue/story by many people insopiring each other), so i thought about small LomoLoveStories, some in english, some in german i want to add to this post:
    - Love Of My Only Life. Our Vows Endlesly Say The Origin Respecting You (LOMOLOVESTORY)
    okay... i know.... but... :D
    and now some german small stories, the love between cameras and films:
    - "Ich liebe Dich!", sagte die Kamera zum Film bevor sie ihn sich einverleibte.
    - "Deine Lochung macht mich an", sagte die Kamera zum Film und ließ ihn sich um ihre Spule wickeln.
    -"Du wickelst mich um deine Spule", sagte der Film zur Kamera.
    -"Du ziehst mich raus", sagte der Film zur Kamera.
    - "Ich liebe es, wie deine Räder in mich greifen!", sagte der Film zur Kamera bevor er weitertransportiert wurde.
    - "Schmieg dich an meine Spule", sagte die Kamera zum Film, "Ich werde dich belichten"
    - "Nimm mich!", sagte der Film zur Kamera, die gerade geöffnet wurde.
    - "Ich fühle mich erleuchtet", sagte der Film, der aus der Kamera kam
    - "Klack", das unverkennbare Geräusch der LC-A ist eine Liebeserklärung, wieder und wieder.

    I'm having heaps of fun with this, such a great idea guys!!! I think a good rule would be to add in the rules that you can only post one at a time, then it would be perfect. Hope I win SO much, I really want the pink fisheye!!! <3 (@jennaeloise)
