My Christmas tradition is to have a very early celebratory dinner at my home with my second family, who are made up of my partner and the friends I live with. Often, due to other commitments, this ends up being super early in the calendar year. This year it took place at the end of November!
As my family lives about 100 miles away from my hometown, Leeds, I always end up in the Midlands for Christmas Day and so as a result I miss out on the opportunity to see some of my closest friends, and indeed my fiancé on the day itself. Although this doesn’t bother me too much (as my family makes a huge fuss on Christmas and I get to act like a big kid!), I do like to celebrate Christmas here as well. For as many years as I have been in Leeds, whoever I live with and whatever building we are in (house, flat, student halls of residence) we have still made the effort to have an early Christmas feast.
This year, the event looked like it might have sponsored by Lomography as I had used my piggies to buy 4 presents for the people I live with (and a cheeky one for myself of course!). First, we had a huge roast dinner, cooked by myself and richard-willis. We kind of cheated and had beef, but at least we had cranberry sauce, pigs in blankets, and Christmas crackers. We had a Christmas song playlist on the stereo in the background and we all wore hats and had a glass of mulled wine.
Most importantly, we then got to open our Lomo-presents and have a play with our new cameras: Diana Mini, Fisheye No. 2 and 2 La Sardina Pattern Editions. It was all very exciting indeed and I had a great pretend Christmas this year. I am even more excited now about my second Christmas of the year, although that will be a bit more traditional with it taking place on 25 December like everybody else’s!

When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

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.
Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

At the end of March this year, my friends and I went to Bromo in East Java. We went from Jakarta to Yogyakarta for one day before heading to Mt. Bromo. We decided to take photos of everything there with our analog cameras.
