Hang gliding, surf and nudism.... what else? It’s one of my favorite beaches in Basque Country because it’s what its name says: It’s wild.
La Salvaje or Barinatxe beach is a 750 m long beach located between the villages of Getxo and Sopelana and 17km northeast of Bilbao. It borders with the Cantabrian Sea which allows the beach to have spectacular cliffs around it. The green cliffs meet the blue sea there. From the cliffs. The ideal tourist destination for surf lovers or other sports such as climbing or hang gliding.
The location is ideal to enjoy a refreshing swim at its beaches, fly the skies on a light hang glider, or ride the waves on a surf board, and these activities are a common entertainment for the visitors.
The west side of the beach is nudist though you can wear your swimsuit. Here nudist and non nudist live together in harmony. There is golden sand for everyone. It’s funny to see people playing soccer/football in the morning. The way to differentiate the teams is that one doesn’t wear any clothes. No time for voyeurs. Here you don’t feel embarrassed when you meet someone nude. Once a year, a nude race is organised to welcome the summer. The news always shows this event in national TV. Of course, I’ve tried not to show anything for respect.
Anyway, the waves are wonderful though it’s quite dangerous and it’s usual to see the red flag. Then you can only take a bath on the shore. The rest of the beach is just for surfers.
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but whoever said that must have never shot with a Konica C35. This 46-year-old beauty can definitely hang with the big boys. Come see why this camera is one of my favorites, and why it should be one of yours, too.
The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.

For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.
Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!
Colombia is one of the most vibrant countries in Latin America. In the last years the country went from being one of the most dangerous in the region to one of the most interesting places to visit. One of the jewels of Colombia is a hotels in its capital, the Hotel de la Opera.
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
August 24, 2014 was a great day because of the We The Fest 2014! Maybe it's too early to call it the biggest summer music festival in Jakarta because this has just been its first edition. Nevertheless, my girl and I enjoyed every moment of it!
For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
