In 2011, I got to visit Brighton and really enjoyed it having never been there before. It was a gloriously sunny June day and we got the best of British weather down there.
Last year was the first time I have ever visited Brighton in the south of the UK. We took the train from South London and it takes around an hour, so it is a super convenient location. We were actually on a Lomo workshop with the Soho store and it was the first time they had ever taken a trip outside of London. This was a great day for me as it was also the first time I ever had the chance to try out an LC-A+ and I absolutely loved it – this is probably now the main reason why I have one of my own.
We got to go to the beach (although the wind made this a bit of a risk of getting wet!), played tug-of-war in the park, played in the amusement arcades and fed the seagulls on the pier, went to all the quirky little vintage shops in the city centre, and ate lunch in the Lanes. It was a really great day and there is so much to see and do in Brighton that I definitely hope to go back there this year. There is a lot of great graffiti to see and photograph, and there are loads of individual shops to go to rather than the usual chain stores.
The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
I visited Tibet in early June 2009. It was a group trip with three other friends including fellow lomographer, @venusattack. Tibet to me is a mysterious and untainted place. We wanted to go on a trip there because of its breathtaking mountainous scenery and monasteries.
Thanksgiving is marked by families gathering to share a hearty meal and simply enjoy being around one another. More than a year ago, grazie had to spend the holiday on the Amtrak's Southwest Chief en route to Chicago. She might have been away from her own family on such an important day, but grazie was fortunate to find good company with her fellow travelers.

As many of you would already know, shooting under low light conditions requires more than a steady grip (or a tripod) if you're aiming for outstanding results. You must also have the proper gear, and that, of course, includes film. In this post, we list down five fast films that work their best under such conditions.
