    Hospital Miguel Bombarda: Where the Freedom Ended

    This is not an article about freedom. It’s about a security panopticon inside a psychiatric hospital in Lisbon. I like to think the patients were free in their own minds, so maybe this is a bit about freedom.

    Picturing Freedom: What is it?

    Last month, Lomography asked us to picture Freedom. What exactly is freedom? I could say traveling (well, it's a big part of it), but I guess for me there's a little bit more than that.

    It was this summer at Azores. I thought I had a very cool brand new color slide film in my camera, and I just finished shooting...I get the film out of the camera and...it was a redscale! I was devastated! Until I saw the results.

In this small place there are restaurants, little shops, nice coffee houses, model agencies, dancing and acting studios and so much more! It even has the best place in Lisbon to develop film especially if you have a Lomo camera...and art is everywhere!

    Now you can have Straps in your Sprocket Rocket!

    Have you ever wanted to put a strap on your Sprocket Rocket and find out there's no right place to put it? I tried to place a strap at the bottom of the Sprocket (in the eye that screws into the tripod) but that just didn't work for me as the camera would hang upside down and that's not cool. So I came up with this idea to put elastics around the body of the Sprocket and then clip the 2 sides of the strap there. Simple.
