Wolfe's Pond Park and Beach, Staten Island, NY

2

Going to the beach in the fall isn't a bad idea after all (as long as you have a camera with you).

A friend drove me up to this place one day in autumn last year. There weren’t as much people as in the summer which made the photos look solemn and as a friend would describe it, “suicidally sad.” We sat there by the shore for a good hour, watching the ducks float nearby, before we left and gone back to civilization.

Most people would be surprised to find out that there are other public beaches in New York City besides the one in Coney Island. Yes, there are. In fact, of all the seven beaches, three are in Staten Island. There goes your fun NYC fact.

Shot with a Lomo LC-A+ and a roll of redscaled Lucky film (200 ISO).

    Experiencing the Rainforest Adventure Experience

    When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.

    Action.. basket time!

    As you can see in my albums, I love to photograph sports events. In this case, I used a pretty Actionsampler camera to document a mini basketball game played in the park of my city Como, in celebration of the Festival of Sports. It's a funny camera with interesting results! Take a look after the jump!

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    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.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
