Have you watched the movie called ‘Pay It Forward’?‘? It’s about when someone does a big favor to you, don’t pay it back. Pay it forward. How about doing the same thing here in Lomography?
In Spring ’09 I started developing my own film. Unfortunately, my first x-pro was a disaster and the scanning became more difficult. However, after I uploaded the pictures recently, a lot of people here liked many of my shots from that roll and left many nice comments. It was surprising and it meant a lot to me. As a result, now I have more motivation to develop and scan >15 rolls of films.
Then I remembered the movie called Pay It Forward. I think that we can apply that concept here in Lomography. For example, when someone likes one of your picture then you have to go to random home, browse the albums there and find some pictures that you like and click that ‘I like this’ button and/or leave a nice comment. After that, do the same thing to at least two other people. You can also write ‘pay it forward’ after that on their home.
In the movie, the pay it forward movement finally grew nationwide. So let’s make the same movement here grow worldwide. Let’s do it now!

"I have been living in Portland for about 8 years now, off and on and it does feel like home. It is a great place to come back to after traveling. But I think I am happiest on the road or traveling, it feels kind of second nature to me," explains Portland-based photographer Jeff Luker.
