Photography and Paraphenalia - A Day at Venice Beach

7

Calling all you lomographers in the Los Angeles area! We're having an adventure and you know you're in the mood for an adventure (oh, I know you are). And in the spirit of the summer weather that just decided to blow in, we're spending the day at the beach, kinda. We'll be meeting up on the walk (Ocean Front Walk) and N. Venice Blvd. And then the fun begins! We'll be mingling with the freaks, sampling the native foods, and (of course) burning through as much film as physically possible. So come ready to walk and with an itchy trigger finder because Venice is sure to not disappoint.

(and though it’s listed as going till 6:00, in reality we’ll be there until we decide to go home)

    James Wright's So It Goes x Sri Lanka Photo Diary (Part I)

    In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
