“I fell in love with the sweet sensation/I gave my heart to a simple chord/I gave my soul to a new religion/Whatever happened to you?/Whatever happened to our rock’n’roll?/Whatever happened to my rock’n’roll?”…I’ll tell you what happened!
Let’s have some rock and roll! Every year, near the city of Leiria, in a place called Bajouca, there is a small rock festival that promotes young, unknown bands nationally and can ensure that the Portuguese rock bands (or foreign) are already in "movement”. And there we can find some good surprises!
The festival lasts for just a few hours divided into two days, but two intense days which become a meeting of sorts for young guys in a small enclosure where there’s never lack of food, beer, shots, music, and solidarity. Yup, the cherry on the top of the cake! We can satisfy our hunger (and thirst) and rock at the same time that we are more willing to contribute money to an association of children with cerebral palsy. Another good reason to consume as much beer or juice as you can (or maybe only beer)!
We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures.

The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!

Mitchell Wojcik is based in Brooklyn, New York. He likes "Ghostbusters, and to make whatever comes to mind and document my life as I go."

There's so much to love about instant photography. The idea of a picture developing right in the palm of your hand is really amazing and exciting, but that's just the beginning -- what you do next with your instant photos will take your excitement to the next level.
