My Favorite Patch of Greenery

My favorite patch of greenery is a forest called the "Wildwald Vosswinkel". It's a big, private forest that is great for having a wonderful day away from the city, which also means, away from traffic.

It’s in the middle of Germany, not too far from where I live. This forest is a great place to escape from the city for a day. It’s big enough to spend a day or two but on the other hand, it’s also small enough not to get lost in. :-)

Of course there are mainly trees but they also have all kinds of flowers (I love to take photos of flowers and I had just bought the Holga close-up lens set when I went there last summer). Then there is plenty of water – kids love it. And of course animals. Animals are great for close-ups. I brought my LC-Wide and did some nice shots of one of the cats and the pig. ;-) There are deers as well – I love those big animals!

After a day in the forest, you can have some nice food in the restaurant or you can bring your own food and eat it while sitting around the fireplace.

This is definitely a place for children and families but if you bring your camera(s), you can spend the day all by yourself (just you and your Holga). ;-)

The Lomo LC-Wide boasts the newly-developed 17mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens. This 35mm camera wonder is the perfect companion for your photo expeditions. It produces eye-catching splashes of colour with astonishing saturation and contrasts with the added versatility of 3 different formats. Open up to a new photographic experience with the LC-Wide, available in our Shop.

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    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.
