A kid's Paradise, a large amusement parks for kids and shops that can give incentive for a students.
Kids nowadays, don’t they just have all the luck? When I was a kid we didn’t have any large amusement parks. We didn’t have any of those really cool and expensive toys that they have now. The other week, we went to the Fun Ranch in Pasig City. It’s a hub of activity centers which are child oriented. Ok, so yeah it’s basically a more pimped up playground. There are arcades, inflatable bouncy castles, slides, swings, magic shows. Interestingly it’s not all fun and games here. Some shops give incentives to good students who have high marks on their current report card and give them free use of the facility for an hour.
Some places can be rented out for parties. I asked if they’d allow adults to rent out the bouncy castle, they said they’d give me an hour of use for a little over a hundred dollars. That’s unlimited guests bouncing around like mad. There is a spa and salon for the whole family although I can’t imagine why a kid would want a massage given their stress free life. The grub isn’t bad too. You can have your pick from colorful Japanese food , tasty grilled meals or maybe just a couple of sandwiches will do. What’s great for the lomographer here is that virtually everything in the compound is bright and visually interesting which registers quite well on film. Bold reds, strong blues, I’d probably come back with a Lomo Xpro Film in hand next time I visit the place.
Every year my city Como hosts, for the Easter period, a great fun fair. This is a great occasion to test a camera, to make experiments with films, to have fun and to photograph people while also having fun! This year, I used my gem, the wonderful Horizon Perfekt (that I bought from the Lomography Online Shop) loaded with a timeless film, a Kodak Tri-X 400 developed, as usually for b/w, by myself.

Give anyone a blob of Play-Doh and you can be sure that he or she, whether a kid or an adult, would be able to transform it into something else - say, an animal figure or a type of food. In Eleanor Macnair's case, however, she makes one of the most excellent renderings of Play-Doh we've seen so far by using them to remake photographs!

The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
As the largest park in Union Country, New Jersey, The Watchung Reservation makes an ideal venue for hiking and outdoor photography. Visitors can look forward to a trailside, lake that freezes in winter, and a Science Center, among other natural attractions. With cameras and the new Petzval Lens in tow, the Lomography NYC lab team and I paid the park a visit, and this is what we found.
Leuven is a typical Belgian university city that is full of students, but feels a bit like a ghost city when all the students go home for the weekend. Nevertheless, this is the perfect time to pay a visit to this beautiful historic city just right next to Brussels. If you like culture, cobblestoned streets, creativity, and Belgian beers, this is your perfect day trip!
