Arbroath Harbour, Scotland

7

Small town, big photo opportunity. For those who loves boats or yachts this is the place.

Arbroath is a small town on the east coast of Scotland, best known for the ‘Arbroath Smokie’ – haddocks smoke in a very particular way, and very tasty. Nowadays very little fish is caught by boats based here, and with not a little effort the harbour is being transformed into a ‘marina’ for yachts and cruisers.

Enough activity still goes on to make it a worthy destination for Lomographers. If you’re lucky you could see the lifeboat on manoeuvers, there’s an active boatyard, lots of yachts and boats of all descriptions and a thriving community of lobster fishermen with their paraphernalia. Oh, and the place is crawling with seagulls – always a favorite subject! On a good day, the light quality is as good as it gets, making it – i think – one of the best destinations in Scotland for Lomographers.

    Everyone goes crazy for the purple! Here is the film review I wrote: www.lomography.com/magazine/films/2009/04/23/fuji-astia-120…

    It seems to be a specific quirk with the lab I use... I've submitted them to the photolabs database thing, but if anybody wants the details just leave me a message.

    Lomography Asks: Is It Acceptable to Photograph the Homeless?

    "Is it acceptable to photograph the homeless?" is one of the most hotly-debated topics when it comes to street photography. There are two opposing sides to this: those who believe it is, and those who don't. For those who do, capturing such photographs is mere documentation of the world around us. For those who don't, doing so is a form of exploitation.

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

    Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan who wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and photograph them. He never became a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years after, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

    Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.
