Mokoro Trip in Okavango Delta

The Okavango delta is Botswana’s most famous nature reserve, and it has a very rich wildlife, which vary with the seasonal flood of the delta.

One of the best ways to explore and get up close with the delta is with mokoro. The mokoro is a canoe like boat, which is driven with a pole. It’s a very silent and calming way to experience this overwhelming nature, but also vulnerable to hippos.
As the wildlife is wild, it’s not always so easy to find it, but even if you don’t catch any of the big animals this is an experience not to be missed if you should be in the area.

The delta is full of lodges in all price ranges, some of them can be found here http://www.okavango-delta.net/

    Great shots. I would give anything to have had my lomo cameras with me when I visited Africa. Funny you should mention the hippos because our canoe wasn't so lucky and got attacked and nearly flipped. Africa is no joke.

    LomoAmigo: Cat Stevens

    London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.

These multiple-exposed photos have an unmistakable style in the vein of ecstatic carnivals and exaggerated dreams. The man behind the vivid shots, Hodaka Yamamoto, talks to us about the habits of a good experimental photographer.

    Lomo In-Depth: The Defining Role of Women Photographers in Art History

    It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
