These photos were taken at Brighton Beach in New York. The three of us took a train out to the beach on a sunny Thursday. We wanted to get out of the city for a minute and check out the local beaches.
Brighton Beach calls to the city dweller. Brighton Beach Boardwalk harbors many Russian restaurants that tempt passersby to spend a pleasant hour enjoying a delicious meal, welcome shade, and a beautiful view of the ocean. Lively and unique stores on Brighton Avenue attract the intrepid shopper. However, as always, in the summer, it is Brighton Beach’s warm ocean, hot sand, and salty air that are the ultimate draw.
There is a lot of history behind the beach including the Brighton Beach Music Hall, which featured such famous performers as Sophie Tucker. Horse racing began in Brighton Beach in 1879. William Engeman formed the Brighton Beach Racing Association with a course located between Ocean Parkway and Coney Island Avenue. Brighton Beach Avenue, the main street running under the elevated tracks of what are now the B and Q trains is filled with great little Russian markets and restaurants.
It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.

New York City has long been synonymous to skyscrapers, throngs of people both locals and tourists, neon lights, entertainment, and all things loud and hip. It is, after all, a metropolis, a melting pot of cultures - the city that never sleeps.

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.
Nearly three decades after its release, the iconic Lomo LC-A continues to inspire and impress countless lomographers and film photography enthusiasts around the world. This includes the team at Lomography NYC, who took the new Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens around New York City.
The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
