As a dirt jumper, my second home is my local trail... Ever since some stupid people had us close down our former trail (the Jurassico, maybe you read my location on it quite a while ago...), I had to move to another second home!!
The Radio trail is quite a tiny space, and at first view not such a cool place for shooting… In fact when you enter all you see are some dirt piles (which are in fact kicks and landings), and a huge and ugly antenna (some cell phone stuff)…
Yet the good is still to come, as we use these jumps for acrobatic bike jumping! I don’t carry my cameras so often to the trail cause I know they most probably stay in my backpack as I will be riding all the time, but when I happen to take one out, it’s quite fun to play with these dirt mountains and the bikers tricks… Most people who come to shoot at us have digital cams, but lomos allow you to be creative in a different way! So if you pass by, come to see me and my friends at my second home!!
Ever since it opened in the '60s the Jigokudani Yaenkoen park in Nagano Prefecture, Japan has been visited by people from all over the world to observe the famous snow monkeys, or the Japanese Macaque. Lomographer ihave2pillows had the wonderful opportunity to see the snow monkeys up close a couple of years ago, and here are some of the photographs that he had shared with the community.

Photography has been described as a time-stopping device, something that “freezes” an action. This moment on-pause is the most salient; all conversation about the picture will tend to pin down the beauty of that second. Celeste Ortiz’s photos make us think of something else. A sense of continuation.
