    My Bestest LomoFriend

    My best LomoFriend is English, although he’s acclimated perfectly to Spanish life. He likes zipping around Madrid on his bike. He hides from its unforgiving sun by climbing into the freezers in Carrefour. At weekends he escapes to his girlfriend's village in Castilla La Mancha. When he's old, he’d like to go and live in the Scottish Highlands. My best LomoFriend is an artist who wields pencils just as well as he handles cameras. My best LomoFriend is bensozia.
