  • O Patinho feio de Plástico com alma Lomo

    O Patinho feio de Plástico com alma Lomo

    O exterior de plástico da Vivitar UWS dá muito pouca idéia da qualidade da estrela que está dentro. A lente 22mm e abertura f11 fixos e 1/125s velocidade do obturador não deviam somar para a magia lomo, mas de alguma forma ela soma.

    Il brutto anatroccolo di plastica con un'anima Lomo

    Il semplice esterno in plastica della Vivitar UWS dà veramente poco l'idea delle qualità che nasconde all'interno. La lente da 22mm, l'apertura fissa f11 e la velocità dell'otturatore di 1/125s non possono restituire la magia lomo, ma qualcosa fanno.

  • The Plastic Ugly Duckling with a Lomo Soul

    The Plastic Ugly Duckling with a Lomo Soul

    The plain plastic exterior of the Vivitar UWS gives you very little idea of the star quality lurking within. The 22mm lens and the fixed f11 aperture and 1/125s shutter speed shouldn't add up to lomo magic, but somehow it does.

    Un día en las carreras - ¡La LomoLocalización que Puede ser Provechosa!

    ¿Te falta inspiración lomo? ¿Estás cansado de fotografiar las mismas calles, la misma gente? ¿No tienes mucha liquidez? ¿Qué tal una lomolocalización que te ofrece salir al campo, gente guapa, maníaticos de la velocidad moviéndose rápido Y la oportunidad de ganar unos pavos? Si es así, es hora de atacar las carreras... (OK,OK, lo admito, también puedes perder... pero piensa en lo divertido que será)

    The Alameda de Hercules, Sevilla

    [Asset:190266] Since the 16th Century, the ever-sociable Sevillanos have been enjoying a stroll, or paseo, in the wide, tree lined promenade called the Alameda de Hercules. In the four hundred and some years it has existed, the Alameda has been everything from a fashionable meeting place for the upper classes to a run down area with drug and prostitution problems. Now it's one of the busiest, liveliest and most funky places in the city.

    Triana (Sevilla)

    Across the Guadalquivir from the old heart of Sevilla is Triana, the barrio of the city known for flamenco and for being a great place for a tapa and a glass of manzanilla. The streets closest to the river are impossibly narrow, with houses whitewashed and hung with pots of geraniums, or painted in the distinctive red paint of the city.

    Brentford

    Head west out of London and you get to Brentford - not a very glamorous sounding location, you might think. Until you realize that you're just step away from the Thames River, with the famous world heritage site Kew Gardens over the river, and with Water mans Park and its beautiful metal sculptures and the string of Thames houseboats at your feet.

    Mablethorpe

    Long before the days of the package holiday and the budget airline, when British were more restricted in where they could spend their summer holiday, the east coast of England from the Wash up to Hull was a tourist Mecca of beach resorts and holiday camps. In the fifties, sixties and seventies many families chose to spend two weeks at one of the famous beach resorts on the Lincolnshire coast, one of the most popular being Mablethorpe.

  • King's Forest at West Stow

    King's Forest at West Stow

    If you flew over East Anglia in a helicopter you'd see below you a dark and rather gloomy area of forest somewhere in the middle of the more usual fen and farming landscape. If you drove along the A11 to Norwich, you would drive through a desolate and unexciting section of the same dark, dripping pine forest. Either way, you wouldn't feel tempted to explore further, which would be a shame, as on the boundary of this admittedly uninviting forest is a place where a much older deciduous woodland still exists among the plantations of pine and fir.
