Paul Simon is a true hero, over the years he has brought the world many hit songs, including ‘Mrs. Robinson’, ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, ‘Graceland’ and our favourite, ‘Kodachrome’:

When I think back
On all the crap I learned in high school
It’s a wonder I can think at all
And though my lack of education
Hasn’t hurt me none
I can read the writing on the wall

Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world’s
a sunny day

Paul Simon has just released a new album, titled ‘So Beautiful Or So What’, so we want you to submit your shots that are ‘so beautiful’ to this rumble, in order to win some truly legendary prizes from Paul Simon and Lomography.

    Paul Simon changed the direction of my life from the time I was five years old and I am so grateful to this man! I have a letter that I wrote him when I was nine in my closest but was too embarassed to send it telling him how much I adore him and his unbelievably touching music :)
