Danbo is made from cardboard. Azuma Kiyohiko, the writer of Yotsuba, created this character to appear once in the comic. He has unique expression which has attracted many photographers in the world to make him as the object of their photos. Furthermore, Danbo can be posed easily according to the concept of their photos.
In the Yotsuba comic, Danbo appears in the 5th comic, chapter 28. It is when Ena and Miura got a school project and they made a robot named Danbo. They made it from a cardboard. The idea was to have someone inside the Danbo, which was Miura, to make Danbo speak and move. But to have him move, you had to insert ¥100 and you could click a switch on the right side of his face to make his eyes shine. Yotsuba shocked when they first met in Ena's room, but made friends with him eventually. Yotsuba believed them that Danbo was a robot, without knowing there was Miura inside Danbo.

(4) Try the shot from the hip

With recent breaches of online security at major sites, keeping your sensitive data secure is more crucial than ever. This is some general tips to keep in mind when you're spending time online ::
Secure your web browser
Before visiting a single site, you can do a lot to protect yourself with privacy and security settings built right into Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome and other browsers. Make sure to understand the preferences, and set them to the levels you're most comfortable with.
Stay prudent during registration
Sites that ask you to register your e-mail address tend to state their terms and conditions of use. If you have any concerns, take a moment to read the small print. You might be signing up for more than you thought, including regular newsletter e-mails, or worse, authorising your personal info to be shared with third parties. If a site doesn't have any stated terms at all, that itself is a good warning to stay away.
Get another e-mail account
Some people find it helpful to keep a secondary account that is specifically used for registering on sites or when an e-mail address will be displayed on a public page. This may control the amount of unwanted e-mails, but does require time for managing the additional e-mail account.
Create secure passwords
Instead of common words, use long passwords that contain letters, numbers, and a mix of upper-and-lower-case characters. Try not to use the same passwords twice. This can be difficult, as you may have dozens of sites that you visit regularly. Ask yourself if you need to sign up, or if you can use a site effectively without registering. Write your passwords down if necessary, and keep your password list secure.
Monitor your social network activity
Most social network sites provide privacy settings that can be customised to your own comfort level. Note that the default settings may no necessarily be in the best interest of your privacy. Aside from these settings, be reminded that anything you put on your profile or otherwise interact with on the social site has a high chance of being seen and used by the social network company itself for other-possibly unintended-purposes.
Surf safely over WiFi
When using public or open WiFi networks, avoid conducting sensitive transactions such as banking or government services. Even if you're only just browsing, use secure methods whenever possible. Facebook and Twitter, two of the most popular social sites, offer connectivity through secure HTTPS, but this has to be explicitly selected in your account settings(unsecured HTTPS is used by default).
Protect against viruses & malware
Install protection software to help protect against threats, and keep it maintained with the latest updates. New types of viruses and malware are introduced constantly. Do note that some of these can track and record your online habits, while even more harmful ones can use your computer without your knowledge to launch online attacks.
Lomography is the commercial trademark of Lomographische AG, Austria for products and services catering to the Global Modern art community of Lomographics photography. The name is inspired by the former state-run optics manufacturer LOMO PLC of Saint Petersburg, Russia. LOMO PLC created and produced the 35mm LOMO LC-A Compact Automat camera-which become the centerpiece of Lomography's marketing and sales activities. This camera was loosely based upon the Cosina CX-1 and introduced in the early 1980s.
In other ways, It began with a fateful encounter in the early 1990s, when two students in Vienna,Austria , stumbled upon the Lomo Kompakt Automat-a small, enigmatic Russian camera. Mindlessly taking shots from the hip, and sometimes looking through the viewfinder, they were astounded with the mindblowing photos that it produced-the colour were vibrants, with deep saturation and vignettes that framed the shot-it was nothing like they had seen before! Upon returning home, friends wanted their own Lomo LC-A, igniting a new style of artistic experimental photography that we know as Lomography ! :))
