“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you…I could walk through my garden forever.” ― Alfred Tennyson
Valentine’s just went by and swiped some good coin for florists all over the world. I always thought that flowers were a bit trivial and honestly speaking, I was glad to be so wrong. It’s one of my biggest mistakes to date and this year’s Valentine’s was the time and venue to make amends. Just seeing the face of my future wife light up with surprise as I handed her the followers, while my friends and I serenaded her, was priceless.
It’s true that Valentine’s need not be all about giving presents to show a loved one how special he or she is and that you can easily do something romantic without breaking your bank. But it’s always good to show how you feel even if you’re just being converted into a full-time romantic.
Flowers are a great way to start with that. You can just pick flowers from your garden or at a park (provided that it’s allowed and if not, don’t do it you scoundrel.) It’s a simple gesture but it goes a long way. And not to mention, a simple pop of color from a budding tulip can easily brighten anyone’s day! Just take a hint from these floral beauties from our community members.
It’s easy to connect the idea of love with flowers. After all, romantics often use “flowery” words to express what they feel. And I don’t have any qualms with that. Add beauty and romance to your life with flowers as well as put a smile on the face of your loved ones even if Valentine’s is already over.
I’m still trying to get flowers for my mother, after all she’s the first woman in my life. You, too can catch up with the flower thing and don’t limit yourself to just Valentine’s!
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!
You won't believe what we have in store for you with the launch of our newest mystery product. What a crazy idea, they thought. It can't be done, they said.

Could these milestones have anything to do with our mystery product?
Growing up in a small town in the middle of California, Kayla Varley knew she wanted to see more of the world, and explore it through her photography. Ever since she was a child, photography was a creative escape to a whole different world. A world where moments are being captured forever.
Mere days before my two week adventure I spontaneously inherited Lomography’s original gem of immediate satisfaction. Armed with the most creative take on instant photography yet, I was able to see Salamanca, Oviedo, Santander, and Madrid through a rare lens.

Ever since photography has been invented in the early 19th century, people had themselves being photographed. However, in times of smartphone cameras, selfies and social media, recording our daily life in pictures has become a Leitmotiv, a metaphor for a restless society.
