A kid’s Paradise, a large amusement parks for kids and shops that can give incentive for a students.
Kids nowadays, don’t they just have all the luck? When I was a kid we didn’t have any large amusement parks. We didn’t have any of those really cool and expensive toys that they have now. The other week, we went to the Fun Ranch in Pasig City. It’s a hub of activity centers which are child oriented. Ok, so yeah it’s basically a more pimped up playground. There are arcades, inflatable bouncy castles, slides, swings, magic shows. Interestingly it’s not all fun and games here. Some shops give incentives to good students who have high marks on their current report card and give them free use of the facility for an hour.
Some places can be rented out for parties. I asked if they’d allow adults to rent out the bouncy castle, they said they’d give me an hour of use for a little over a hundred dollars. That’s unlimited guests bouncing around like mad. There is a spa and salon for the whole family although I can’t imagine why a kid would want a massage given their stress free life. The grub isn’t bad too. You can have your pick from colorful Japanese food , tasty grilled meals or maybe just a couple of sandwiches will do. What’s great for the lomographer here is that virtually everything in the compound is bright and visually interesting which registers quite well on film. Bold reds, strong blues, I’d probably come back with a Lomo Xpro Film in hand next time I visit the place.

I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
Analogue photography alone is tricky business for the newbie, and film development is another skill to master. Learning never stops at just a tutorial or two. Van Dan, a music producer and photographer, gives a comprehensive breakdown of film development for experts and neophytes alike.
Because here’s the thing about film photography that I doubt a digital camera can give you: Permanence, photographs that truly and literally stay with you, not just in a physical form but also in your head and in your heart.

Several months ago, Simeon Smith recorded all the bleeps, whirs, clanks and snaps that analogue cameras make. He then used these samples to create rhythms and textures for his music. He has since ventured into other projects, and recently made a music video using the LomoKino and an Actionsampler.
