Viana do Castelo a City in the North seaside of Portugal.
Viana do Castelo is an Atlantic City in the North of Portugal close to Porto (more a less 70Km). It is located between three natural elements: the Atlantic Ocean, a river (Rio Lima) and a Mountain. It is a medium size city (according to Portugal’s standards) with a nice city center that is 750 years old. One of the most important things about the development of the city is the seaport and the naval repairing facilities. The shipyard is the only one still working in Portugal.
Now the city finished a program about rebuilding the public zones of the city center, so it can be good place to see Architecture (some buildings from the best Portuguese architects).
For me it can be a nice place to spend some days, the beach is quite near and is well known for the quality and for the waves for Bodyboard/Surfing and wind for Kite/Wind surfing. The only disadvantage is that the water is cold here. In the summer (August) there are some popular parties and music festivals in the district. And don’t forget to try “Bolas de Berlim do Manel Natário” (the best Berliners ever!)
Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.
Where do I begin? Believe me, I know many places in Bandung. From a cozy cafe to where the famous street food and maybe even drinks can be found, to places for lomowalks, it would be my pleasure to show you all around Bandung - the city I love and the city of love!
