Across the street from the Davelopment Academy of the Philippines and just beside the Tierra de Maria in Tagaytay is a Filipino-Japanese Friendship Garden open to the public. While the garden is far from what a true Japanese garden is and its being Filipino was similarly a cause for doubt and deep reflection, the small price to pay to enter it was a consolation. With nothing much to see and explore in that 1200 sq. meters of space, I wasted no time lomographing textures around and doubling my shots with self-portraits against a not-so-blue sky.

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. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. 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!
