May in Tainan, a homecoming visit to the place of good old times.
Tainan is my hometown and I haven’t been back home for quite a long time. In May, I was lucky enough to have a two-week vacation on schedule so I went back to Tainan, with my Diana Mini and X-Pro Chrome 100 35mm which I just bought. I planned to take them with me to look around in the winding alleys and streets of this ancient capital with modern renovations.
There are many traffic circles on the streets of Tainan. Min Sheng Green Park is one such circles. This is also the place that I shot with X-Pro Chrome 100 35mm for the first time.

Very often you will see kids today with their noses touching the screen of a tablet. While this may all develop children's fascination and curiosity, as a parent, you actually lose quality time with them. It's the holidays and it's the perfect time to share your love for analogue photography.
Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?
For most New Yorkers there are exactly two places of hell on earth: Penn Station and Times Square. However, as a photographer, Vincent Pflieger discovered the beauty in the latter and captured a peek behind the curtain of the everyday show, called Times Square.
Photographer Antonio Castello is an old friend of Lomography and has once again taken out our mutual friend, the Diana F+ for a fun night. This time, the iconic medium format camera got to scent the air of the fashion world!
When Lomography introduced the Diana F+, it became an instant darling in 2007. The year after, the Diana World Tour has launched, the biggest party ever for the toy camera. Let's blast back to several years earlier and toast to the good times of the Diana World Tour.
One of the most important and most talked about photographic equipment today is the camera lens. There's a variety of it. But have you ever tried going lens-less, the way photography was before? The good old days of pinhole photography.
