Another milestone has been reached on beta.lomography.com!
A long time in the making, we are rapidly approaching the full relaunch of Lomography online! A lot has been happening and we now feel that it is time to take a moment and appreciate the support that you have all given us. A little bit of proof, and part of the reason that we do this blog, is that today we are proud to host more than 10,000 albums compromised of nearly 200,000 photos taken by nearly 6000 different Lomographers on the beta site!
We would like to give special thanks to our top uploaders:

And finally, the photos! Here are a list of the top 13 photos as liked and commented on by the community!
Lomographer Reza Ahmadi has always been interested in documenting the world through visual arts. As an alternate to drawing and painting, he picked up photography as a hobby which gradually grew into a passion that follows him from one city to another. Get to know our featured Community newcomer from Indonesia.
Viktor Bevaro has been dreaming about a long journey his whole life. After a breakup, he finally packed his bags, his Lomo LC-Wide and has been travelling ever since. Viktor has traveled 40+ countries and is sharing his experience and beautiful photos with us.
Robert Herman has been a street photographer since his student time at New York University in the late 1970's. Back then, he started to capture New York, the city's beautiful diversity of people, reflections and unique coincidental moments on rolls and rolls of analogue film.
Alessandro Casagrande is one-of-a-kind photographer who embarked on this photographic journey when he got his very first camera from his father. He has been taking photos ever since, and his photographs will help you see the world from a whole new perspective.
We asked long time Lomography veteran, Adrian Bilek, to gives the low down on what creative gifts to buy for the upcoming holiday season! Adrian has been living and breathing Lomography for over 9 years now, so if anyone know’s their stuff —it’s him!
We can always count on Brian Bruno and Audrey Kitching to take us from our screens straight into an analog fairy tale. But when he recently loaded his camera with the first roll of Color Negative F2 / 400 120 film, they still managed to surprise us with this stunning series.
In 1990's Georgia, kidnapping young girls as a type of courtship or engagement was a trend that Georgian documentary photographer Dina Oganova thought has been long gone. However, Dina learned later on that it was still on-going in post-Soviet Georgia.
The TEN AND ONE Residency Week has been very intense and full of activities. From 11 to 18 November, we did LomoWalks around Vienna, guided visits to museums and magazine editorial office, a workshop, a trip to Bratislava, worked on our LomoWall and of course LomoLunch and LomoDinner. We had the opportunity to attend a Cyanotype Workshop at Lomography Head Quarter held by Michael Wuermer, a young and nice photographer and printer.
