Seattle, Washington is not quite on the West Coast but it definitely has an original West Coast feel. The stereotype that it rains all the time is misleading. There is plenty of sun and color in Seattle and the rainy winters just make Seattlites all the more enthusiastic to celebrate color all year long.
Seattle is full of diversity. There is very little cookie-cutter attitude about anything. There is a large and varied selection of markets, including a large farmers’ market association. Neighborhood festivals take place all year long to celebrate the diversity in cultures. Beach walks are as popular in the Winter as in the Summer. Living close to Puget Sound allows you to breathe in a densely populated urban setting and Seattlites just love to be outside. The architecture is original and varied. No two residential streets look alike. There is delicious coffee everywhere from a large selection of independent coffee shops. Seattle is a big city without the big city attitude or challenges. It’s comfortable, welcoming, manageable, and friendly. And never ever boring.
Every year I get the winter blues. I start imagining the feel of the sunrays, ice cold beer after a long summer day, and the endless hours spent on the beach. I have captured moments, memories, and dreams this year, which is my favorite thing to do. This is a short version and visual diary of my year 2014.
If theater has the stage then fashion has photography. It is through pictures that trends and new looks are wheeled from coast to coast. Even 50-year-old prints can sway next generations of fashion plates. Take Jacqueline Kennedy's shipshape style and the mod crowd of New York and London, all veritable influencers until today.
The radiant and warm colors of autumn are definitely a pretty sight to behold. They might not last that long before the washed-out winter comes, so better whip your camera fast and capture the glory of autumn in perfect lomographs!

When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
Joe Brook is one of the most popular photographers in the West Coast skate scene, shooting for magazines like Trasher, Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, and different outlets such as PDN and Kodak. Having previous experience with an old Petzval lens mounted on a 4x5 camera, it was but natural for him to try the new one. Brook talks about finding himself, his work, and shooting with the Lomograhy Petzval Lens in this exclusive interview.
A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.
Over the past month, we've been holding quite a few events in Lomography stores around the globe to celebrate the coming of the New Petzval Lens. That's right folks, the Petzval is now available in stores and our online shop, and it was more than enough reason to celebrate!
