Eyedancing - Round One!

12

Mario Roth takes us on a trip around the world! Read on for the first leg of his tour!

As some might know, my main job besides a Lomographer which takes plenty of time (taking pictures, scanning, uploading and staying in contact with my Lomofriends in this great community) is working for a company called Battle of the Year. We are organizing the World Championships in Breakdancing and have around 40 preliminaries this year worldwide. Probably we will also play in a theater near your town. Check our website www.battleoftheyear.de

One of the good things of this job is that we have to visit the worldwide events and make sure the local organizer stick to the rules and the event is running smoothly. A short while ago me and my good friend DJ Kid Cut received a phone call from Thessaloniki, Greece if we can could come down and appear at their event!

Both of us were free, so we got together our freshest kicks and gear and headed to the airport, direction south.

The plane was already waiting, so boarded and were ready to take off!

When we arrived we took the next transportation to the city and went straight to our hotel. The hotel looked already amazing from the front, so I don´t have to say how overwhelmed I was when I checked the view from the balcony.

Next stop was the venue. On the way there we had to overcome several small difficulties but finally we made it.

The B Boys were already waiting and as soon as the doors are open everybody rushed inside and started to warm up and dance…..it´s a real pity that pictures can´t keep the smell of a location you shoot!

After this it was business as usual – Host and Hostess announce the winners and after this we went back to the hotel, sleep and flew back to Germany!

Next stop for me will be Singapore, followed by Brussels…. and maybe something else as well! Stay tuned for more weekend trip adventures.

    Travel Stories: The Bolivian Highlands by lonur

    My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.

    Meet our LomoGuru: zulupt

    Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
