Take a Ferry trip around Sydney and see the sights !
I love going on the ferry to sail around Sydney – it’s such a cool way to see parts of the city. Sydney Ferries have been around for 135 years and you can get to 39 destinations via these ferry boats. They have all different sizes of boat depending on the routes. Many who live and work in Sydney use them to commute backwards and forwards to work daily. Which is a pretty cool thing to do I think.
According to the website – http://www.sydneyferries.info/ ‘’Sydney Ferries operates approximately 110,000 services, transporting more than 14 million people across Sydney Harbour and the Parramatta River each year.’’ The web site also tells you this Sydney Ferries’ fleet consists of 28 vessels (all of which are wheelchair accessible), which travel around 1.3 million kilometers per year. The fleet is divided into six vessel classes: Freshwater Class (4 vessels) Lady Class (2 vessels) First Fleet Class (9 vessels) RiverCats (7 vessels) HarbourCats (2 vessels) SuperCats (4 vessels) – I like the super cats best of all :)
Best of all you can make amazing lomo images of the city as you zip around all over.
Who knew that by making a hop, skip and jump across town you could create such crazy lomo'instagraphs?! When equipt with the Lomo'Instant and the trusty Splitzer accessory - anything is possible. Take a peep at this selection taken from different locations across Vienna and see for yourself the phenomenal results. Read on to discover how you too can splice-up (and spice-up) historic buildings on your next sight-seeing trip.
"At the edge of the Earth" is an ongoing yearlong project by documentary photographer Markus Andersen in which he captures the coastline of Sydney, Australia on black and white film with the Diana and Lomo LC-A cameras. In this interview, the Sydney-based photographer opens up to Lomography about his latest endeavor as well as on shooting on the streets of his city and the importance of photographing in analog.
Inessa is a London-based artist and lighting designer with a serious case of wanderlust. In this new series, she'll be taking Lomography cameras on her journeys to capture scenes and sights from her trips. First in line is the iconic LC-A+, on a trip to the Serbian, Croatian and Slovenian capitals.
Musician and record producer Dustin Tebbutt left sunny Australia and relocated to Sweden for two years. This experience had a significant influence on his musical style, resulting a delicious blend folk and indie-pop. Armed with the Fisheye no. 2, our newest LomAmigo went on a city trip and captured his moments on film. Check out his gallery along with his interview.
Here's the third and final part of my Lomography Day Trip features about Ubud. To be honest, there are a lot of places there that are worth visiting, but I just picked some of them to help you make the best of your trip. So prepare your notes or travel books and take note of the must-see places that I'll mention below. Maybe one day you'll visit Ubud.
In this very special feature, Bard Wong of Ubud, Indonesia ,shares the story of his grandmother, who he lovingly calls his "Por Por." To make his tale even more interesting, Brad offers an inside peak into his grandmother's past with spectacular vintage photos taken in Canton and Borneo during the 1940s and 1950s.
