This week's featured Analogue Lifestyle article is "Analogue for a Day: A Tourist in My Own Hometown!" Lisbon-based community member roxanneross took her Fisheye No. 2 and Diana Mini out on a field trip and spent the long day getting lost in the city!
“My favourite thing about taking a break from my busy, busy life is going out and about with my film cameras, and feeling immersed in my own culture. So I became a tourist in my city for a day! When I finally arrived home I was exhausted but happy. I felt that I had taken a plane and traveled to a different country. It was reinvigorating to experience this city in the way we did. A day truly well spent! Which made me fall in love with my dear Lisbon a little more.”
Sometimes, a ticket is not necessary to visit a new place. Your new favorite secret spot or hidden discovery could be in plain sight in your very own hometown! Learn from roxanneross and just take your favorite cameras with you to explore the city you think you know like the back of your hand! (In her case, it was the Diana Mini and Fisheye No. 2!) Surely, something will surprise you. Of course, bringing along your favorite friends should enhance the experience as well. :-)

We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
After a fully booked 2015, photographer Chloé Vollmer-Lo found time to test the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens. She brought it to the Natural History Museum and the Paris business district, an endeavor that resulted in quite a few stunning, bokeh-rich images.

Aside from photography, newcomer Dmitri Berenger enjoys a multitude of hobbies including gardening, watching movies, and discovering music. In this interview, he talks about his photographic style, his inspirations, choosing film cameras over digital gear, and many more.
London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
