A Farm in the heart of London, yeah really a FARM !
In the heart of London is a farm, yes A FARM! With cows, sheep, pigs and a llama called Audrey I think she said but I wasn’t 100% sure …. There is mud, brown in color – but I saw no evidence of a Chute *shrugs lightly. Hens also saw I, mainly all white, a few rabbits of various colors and a horse school with horses and riders with big black knee length boots … you need to be patient and do not feed the animals. Bring sandwiches and a flask of tea; wear rubber boots, but no gloves needed imho.
Beware of the goat … *coughs

This is tribute to the Farm Security Administration photographer, Jack Delano, and his photographic series dedicated to barkers. For this article, I chose a series of photos I took this year at the traditional Easter Fair in my city, Como, using a classic rangefinder camera loaded with a roll of black and white film.
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.
Hundreds of thousands of photographs have been shared in the community for the past twelve months and we cannot help but commend those that really stood out and captured everyone's attention. Let's take a look back at this great year through this selection of landscapes and portraits that make up the most popular photos of 2014.
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
Arguably the defining photograph of his career, "Washington, D.C. Government charwoman" by Gordon Parks depicts Mrs. Ella Watson, an employee of the Farm Security Administration (FSA), holding a broom and with a mop and the American flag hanging at the back—a pose reminiscent of Grant Woods' famous painting, "American Gothic" (1930).
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
The Science Museum in London is set to play host to a showcase of some of the earliest known images taken by photography pioneers, selected from the collection of the world's oldest surviving photographic society.
