Vitoria is a city for walking. There are long promenades for Sunday walks.
This city offers long walks surrounded by sober beauty places. One of them and maybe my favorite is the 3km between La Floria Park and Armentia. Maybe because I don’t like much the sun and this promenade is shadowed by long ancient trees. The promenade starts beside the Basque Parliament. This neoclassic building is an important center of the political life in Spain, due to the “conflict” between Basque Country and Spain. Something I won’t comment here. Then you can cross La Florida Park, our classic romantic park with very tall trees, a kiosk for music (on Saturdays and Sundays a band plays “pasodobles” (a Spanish kind of songs) for the old people. My parents met here 40 years ago dancing.
The walk continues on the other side of the road, there on the right before you cross the tran rails, you can find the Zulueta palace, now headquarters of the Sancho El Sabio foundation and archive the most important documents in the region. Continuing the way, you can fin the Museum of Arms. As I told you in another location, Vitoria was a strategic place during the war against Napoleón. Here you can find out why. In front of it, the "Lehendakari"’s house, which is the residence of the Basque Country president. Well protected and maybe one of the most important building in town. Find out which picture is it in the gallery and I will invite the first one to dinner. ;O. The museum of Art in the one on the right. The garden is the favorite place for wedding sessions. I like taking pictures of this garden but not for weddings. The museum has a vaste collection of art since gothic days.
The way continues surrounded by neoclassic building, owned by the richest people in town. Then you arrive to the Prado park. The favorite park for lovers and runners. It became so popular for runners thanks to the world famous marathon man martín Fiz that got the gold medal in the Olympic Games. All the evenings you can find lots of runners here. After 500 mts you will fin the Mendizorrotza sports center, the main sport center in town, and in the other side of the road, The Stadio sport center with several old diving boards nice to shoot. The walk continues to Armentia but if you are tired (as me) you can just return an have a beer in the Florida Terrace, at the beginning of the promenade.

There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
Berlin is the capital and largest city of Germany. With its 3.5 million residents, it is also the second largest city in the European Union. Berlin has a lot to offer when it comes to culture as there are so many people from many different countries living and working together. Of course, Berlin is also home of Lomography Germany!
For this young artist, photography is not just a tally of sights. Set in light or dusk, it is a record of sensations. Shared bliss and awe are as much part of the scenery as the clouds. There is a sense of flight even on land.

The Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island"), also known as "Pearl in the Havel sea," is a world cultural heritage and popular destination for Berliners. Loose peacocks, water buffalos and the magical character of the island were also a reason for me to go and spend one Sunday afternoon there, with my LC-A+ and the LomoChrome Purple film.

One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.
