Alona Beach is known as the “quiet side” of Panglao Island. It is a small island known for its world-class diving and beautiful beaches.
Alona Beach is located in Panglao Island which is 20 minutes from the main island of Bohol. It is said that the island’s name is from a local word “mapanglao” meaning “lonesome place” given by the Spaniards who came here in 1803.
Like other beaches in Bohol, Alona Beach has white powdery sands and turquoise waters. There are a lot of tourists here because the whole beach is lined with resorts from cheap to the very expensive. We decided to stay in an air-conditioned cottage with a very homey atmosphere.
Do you love the beach, sun, and want to have a relaxing vacation? Visit Bohol especially Panglao Island and enjoy everything it has to offer.
The Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island"), also known as "Pearl in the Havel sea," is a world cultural heritage and popular destination for Berliners. Loose peacocks, water buffalos and the magical character of the island were also a reason for me to go and spend one Sunday afternoon there, with my LC-A+ and the LomoChrome Purple film.
Vincent Chan doesn’t like constraints. He is passionate about natural and quiet environments. He launched Compose The Story, which provides photography and cinematography services, recently as a means for him and his colleagues to document the beauty of their surroundings. He brings the the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Lens into the country, and shares glimpses of its beauty in pictures.

"Is it acceptable to photograph the homeless?" is one of the most hotly-debated topics when it comes to street photography. There are two opposing sides to this: those who believe it is, and those who don't. For those who do, capturing such photographs is mere documentation of the world around us. For those who don't, doing so is a form of exploitation.
William Helburn was one of the greatest ad photographers never quite known. His name remained anonymous behind famous ads for Coca-Cola, Buick, Revlon and Max Factor. He brought out the plush side of Kodachrome and surprised the American public with sexy humor. The credit is long overdue, but a recent book pays tribute to Helburn's vibrant career.
Off the main island of Singapore is the small island of Pulau Ubin, whose appearance is reminiscent of life in this highly urbanized country as it was many decades ago. Boredslacker gives us a glimpse through her gritty black and white photographs of the place.
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.

Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.
