Stop by for a very interesting Blue Hour tonight! This week’s theme will be “From Russia, With Love” and we will be celebrating Russia Day!
So what does Russia Day have to do with Lomography? Well a few years ago the governor of the Volga river region came up with a brilliant way to increase the low birth rate. Couples who wished to participate were given September 12th off from work in order to try to conceive a child. Those who then give birth on June12th (Russia Day) receive money, cars, refrigerators, and other prizes. Since then the region has increased its birth rate and is continuing this new tradition.
Here at Lomography we love the idea! So stop by our Russia Day themed Blue Hour and find out about a new competition inspired by the Russia Day babies and a few other surprises. Who knows maybe you’ll fall in love with another Lomographer and have your very own Lomo-baby!
