Time Out London is a definitive publication giving people a chance to stay up to date with everything that is happening in the UK's wonderful capital city. As I found out recently, they also have a blog which is updated daily.
My friend Helen is a London based blogger and as a result, she spends a lot of time reading blogs. When she was reading “Now. Here. This.” (which is the Time Out London Magazine blog) she saw the word Lomography and emailed me the link. Not only is this a great blog for all things London, they did a lovely review of Lomography and made a Facebook page for Lomo pictures taken in the capital. The stunning redscale shot of Big Ben used on the article is by lomographer spendospend.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.

By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.
