Far from everywhere? No! Even more far! :) Please dive in!
We’ve decided to take the rare challenge and make a short track from Xiding to several nearby villages. It wasn’t an easy decision, since some tribes and villages even don’t speak Mandarin Chinese. Luckily, we’ve cooperated with an English guy (hello, Sam!) and moved ahead.
First day was easy more or less. We’ve started from Xiding and finished in a village called Zhanlang (I am more or less sure about the name and can’t find it on the maps). We’ve stayed there for the night – locals usually see the tourists and call them by making gestures that simulate eating or sleeping. Guests are expected to leave some money upon departure.
Second day we made a fabulous track through the spectacular fields to some other village (sorry, forgot the name) and from there we were lucky enough to take a truck back to Xiding (we’ve stand at the back of the truck for 2 hours and it wasn’t for free :).
It’s not that easy both because of the language and because of the absence of any kind of pointers or signs but trekking off the beaten path in Xishuangbanna definitely worth it.
Read on dear friend and I will weave a story for you. There may be more questions than answers raised by this peculiar tale. But if it’s clarity you seek, have no fear, things will become clear in time (they always do, don’t they?). So rub the Sandman’s dust from your sleepy eyes and take a journey with me. If you think you have an answer when we reach the end, please do share it in the comments!
Yesterday I picked up from my trusty photography shop in Como a developed and scanned color film roll containing images of the Sicilian festival held on May 1 at the city's historical center. A few hours ago, I made some scans of these images, which I'm pleased to show you in this article! Read more after the jump!
East and west, old and new coexist harmoniously in the highly-urbanized Southeast Asian city-state, Singapore. Singapore is home to various nationalities not only from around Asia but even from other far-flung countries all over the globe - a true cultural melting pot, with four different major languages and five official religions.
This is a tribute to a great Austrian sports photographer, Lothar Rübelt. In an era with no high speed films available, he was able to immortalize wonderful moments in sports - from diving to gymnastics and football. In creating this tribute, I took a series of photos of an amateur football match using expired black and white film developed using an uncommon chemical. Take a look after the jump!
According to northwardnimbus, his first shot at Lomography using a Holga 120N gave him "blurred, unrecognizable, and downright horrible" photographs. Did this put him off from shooting film? No, of course not! It even challenged his perspective of how a great photograph should look like! Read on to know more about northwardnimbus's First Lomo Affair!
You might have noticed Lomography appearing more and more in the lens world lately, you may even have owned an Petzval Art Lens already. We have Tattso from the Hong Kong Lomography Team this time to share the beauty of the Petzval Art Lens with us, along with his memorable moments in Turkey.
I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
A few days ago, I received from the Lomolab the scans of a roll that I used a couple of weeks ago when I documented a Yoga for Africa public demonstration in Cernobbio, a small town near the city of Como, using my Sprocket Rocket. In this article I'll explain to you the reason that led me to choose this camera. Read more after the jump!
It's a great feeling when you get a camera back to work even though you thought it was already unusable because its particular type of film is no longer in production. Here's how you can do it with a Polaroid camera from the 80-series.
