"My name is Erin and I like long walks on the beach and taking photos with my various Lomography cameras. Do you want to be my boyfriend?" With never having lived further than a 5-minute drive to the beach, here in Australia if the sun is up, there is always some fun to be had down at the local beach!
In case you haven’t read the earlier installments of this series, (you can find it in my articles) there is a place about an hour-and-a-half north of Sydney, Australia that I call home. This new series will highlight a bunch of romantic locations that if you ever come to visit, you should check out, especially if the weather is good like in spring!
You may be aware that we here in Oz are kinda famous for our beautiful white sand beaches, and with the majority of the population living on the coast, if you ever find yourself visiting, you’ll most likely be finding yourself at the beach at one stage or another. Make sure you make the most of it by jumping in the water and soaking in some sun, not too much though, you don’t want to get sunburnt!
The beaches pictured in this article are all taken here on the Central Coast of NSW where I’m from and if there’s one romantic thing I love doing with my boy, it’s definitely heading to the beach at sunset and feeling the sand between my toes!
It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.
William Helburn was one of the greatest ad photographers never quite known. His name remained anonymous behind famous ads for Coca-Cola, Buick, Revlon and Max Factor. He brought out the plush side of Kodachrome and surprised the American public with sexy humor. The credit is long overdue, but a recent book pays tribute to Helburn's vibrant career.
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!

Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.
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.
Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!
