Konya Kebab is the name of quite a number kebab bars in Copenhagen - some good others horrible. This particular Konya Kebab is located at Nørrebrogade 106 opposite of Assistens Kirkegård and falls in the first category.
Konya Kebab is the name of quite a number kebab bars in Copenhagen – some good others horrible. This particular Konya Kebab is located at Nørrebrogade 106 opposite of Assistens Kirkegård and falls in the first category. However I wouldn’t go as far as to say that it is the best among the numerous kebab bars on Nørrebrogade – I simply wouldn’t know.
Konya Kebab serves cheap and good Middle Eastern food. Mostly döner kebab (lamb) or chicken kebab served as shawarma (what Danes would typically call ‘a kebab’) or dürüm. If you’re not that into meat you can order all dishes with falafel instead of meat. Konya Kebab is probably mostly known for its long opening hours – they are open until 6 am – which makes it one of the places where hordes of young drunk people go to get something to eat after a long night out. In my humble opinion this is where kebab bars are most interesting! People have a blast, spill their food all over themselves and act crazy. Sometimes these places even becoming pick-up spots for the last desperate singles on their way home. During the day hours all this craziness is packed away, and you can sit and enjoy your food in peace as the daily life of Nørrebrogade goes by.
What I’ve written here will (to some extend) fit most other Kebab bars on Nørrebrogade – or in Copenhagen in general, and I won’t recommend this place over others in Copenhagen. If you feel like Middle Eastern food just go to a place that looks nice. If you are on Nørrebrogade the kebab bars aren’t many steps apart, so check out a couple of places.
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.
Traveling in Burkina Faso is quite an adventure and a fantastic photographic experience. I went to this fascinating African country at the Sahel border twice and used many different ways of transportation.

Some lomographers prefer to hoard as many analog cameras their shelves and budgets can support. Some would rather keep a manageable number that they can regularly shoot with.

In this interview, he breaks down his small yet dependable arsenal of vintage and handmade cameras and how an organized schedule allows him to shoot with each one on a regular basis.
