    Instant Photography Lives

    Polaroid-style photography is more alive than ever! This means all the Polaroid die-hards can finally throw off their black suits, come out of mourning and rejoice! While it may be true that Polaroid is getting out of the instant photography game, Fuji has taken the baton. Fuji Instax cameras are a new generation of instant camera. Using Polaroid know-how as a base Fuji has made big leaps ininstant photo technology - meaning faster development, more mod-cons, great colour reproduction and cheaper instant film. Lomography is pleased to present the most exciting new instant photo cameras and legendary Polaroid deadstock, plus all the instant film you could need!

    Michigan Central Station (Detroit)

    Old buildings intrigue me. I think about the stories that could be told if the walls could talk. Michigan Central Station at 2405 West Vernor in Detroit opened in 1913 and operated as a passenger rail station until the last Amtrak train pulled away from the station on January 6, 1988.

    How to Tag

    Tagging, aka keywording (as it was called on the old site) is here for us to use and make organization of pictures easy. In order to make it user friendly we need to have a uniform system of tagging among us. Please see our suggestions by "Miriel":http://beta.lomography.com/homes/miriel from the Archive below, these are the main points we believe will help tagging improve :)

    Fed 2 Type 3

    I got one myself in a flea market but to be honest the seller is so scary. He is so tall and got some cool tattoos in his big hand. No I'm not gonna review the seller of this Fed 2 Type 3 and I got the maroon edition. All my friends says the brown is from the blood and I think they're so wrong! This Russian jewel is so lovely and the Industar lens makes the image so old and crisp yet still have that russian mood going on.

    Tipster Of The Day: Your Plastic Impressionist

    We always thought capturing an image of reality in life is about seeing everything in its right place, in a manner of photographic perfection. But then again we are always confronted by the fact that life is indeed an imperfect situation we are in...

    Pioneer Plaza

    When you visit Texas, in particular Dallas, this is one of those iconic places to see. Pioneer Plaza is the home of 40 bronze statues depicting a cattle drive from the 1800s. It was designed by a native Texan, Robert Summers and each sculpture has such detail that the only way to see it is go ahead and jump on them! Just Kidding :D

    This is My LomoStory ... What's Yours?

    I first discovered Lomography when Netscape browsers were all the rage. I was checking out someone personal's website and saw a photo taken with the LC-A. I have never seen anything like it - vignettes, grain, and the explosion of colours. Needless to say I was impressed, but I gave up hopes of acquiring such camera since I was still a student on a tight budget.

    Vivitar UWS - The Smallest Wide Angle Plastic Camera

    The Vivitar UWS (for Ultra Wide & Slim) is perhaps the smallest lightweight plastic camera that offers a wide angle lens of 22mm. The name of the camera describes it perfectly, this cam is really slim (only about 2,5 cm x 6,5 cm x10 cm) and the lens is really wide!

    Baschnja - Abandoned Water-Tower Buchara

    Uzbekistan is a fantastic country with several ancient cities, which were once part of the legendary silk road. One of them is Buchara. But I am not so much a historic site-checker, if you know what I mean. I rather go for the undiscovered urban places that hold a certain arcane quality.

    St. Nikolai Memorial, Hamburg

    Like many churches in Germany, St. Nikolai has suffered bomb attacks during the Second World War. It remained a ruin after the war to remind following generations that war is the most terrible thing mankind can do. The church was once one of the seven main churches in the city area of Hamburg although it now is a memorial.

    Double Whammy! Round-the-Clock Rumble Winners

    This is definitely one of the toughest round-the-clock rumbles we had to judge. A really insane number of submissions presented the infinite possibilities of doubling up their shots. But like all good things, there is an end to this great rumble.

    Picking the Winners

    Picking winners is never easy, and we understand that some of you may question our choice of winners at time, some of you hinting that we have a random system in place doing the work for us. We have also seen several comments recently that many of the winning pictures are good but do not fit the theme of the competition and that submissions are winning that do not meet requirements. That’s why we thought we could take some time and answer some questions.

    What can i say, the Seagull is an instant attention getter. How old is this? Where did you find it? Does it work? They don't expect this chunky camera to take the stunning pictures it does. This camera may be one of the reasons film is not dead.

    This is a really nice spot in London. There are lovely buildings and great views of the whole of London if you walk to the observatory. There are also museums to keep you entertained to! Because of this there are lots of tourists which is good for candid shots and there are pretty good shops and facilities. It is really easy to get to either by train, bus or even the river!
