If you ever go to Lille, in the North of France, take a walk between the two train station : the old one (Lille Flandres) and the new one (Lille Europe) : the new district is wonderfull to take lomopics !
Euralille is the name of the new business district situated at the intersection of the Old Lille and the chic neighborhoods. The project originated with the 1986 Franco-British agreement to build the Channel Tunnel, which was concluded, significantly, in Lille town hall where, in his capacity as Mayor, Pierre Mauroy received President Mitterrand and Mrs Thatcher, the then British prime minister, for the official signing. The Euralille project evolved from the subsequent decision taken in 1987 by France, Belgium, Holland and Germany to develop jointly the North European Train a Grande Vitesse [TGV] network.
Rem Koolhaas was the designated architect to coordinate the works. His conceptual point of departure was the new Lille-Europe TGV station, built to designs by SNCF (French National Railways) architect Jean Duthilleux.
Christian de Portzamparc and Claude Vasconi have each set up `signal’ office towers bestriding the TGV station while Jean Nouvel’s commercial and cultural centre, with its town side alignment of stumpy towers and `fifth facade’ roof canopy sweeping down to the lower ground level Place d’Europe in front of the new TGV interchange.
Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
