I love park, i love desk, i love lamp......................i love lamp
So this is Love Park or JKF Plaza as its officially known. This used to be the eastern seaboards skating mecca before “the man” came and shut it down.
Desingedand built in 1965 the park is next to City Hall and was designed as a terminus for the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
In the 80’s many skateboarders came to skate here, all the clean lines and smooth surfaces and other such things proved irresistable to these fun loving kids. It wa in the 90’s that it blew up here, big names traveling from around the globe to skate here cemented its status as the park of legends and it hosted the x-games two years on the trot in 2001-2002. Pretty cool.
Then the man (Mayor John Street) came along in 2002 and said “we will be having none of this skateboarding business here thank you” even though the park attracted millions of dollars in tourist money. He planted trees and bushes and other obstructions. Made the fines for skateboarding huge and did other bastardy things. Oh yeah he also promised to build a new better park in his re-election campaign but that never happened. Man! Why does the man have to be so hard! We wouldnt always be saying “damn the man” and trying to stick it to him if he was cool.
So when i went here there were some guys on BMX’s and trial bikes doing some stuff and some wino’s staying out the shade. It felt a bit stale and i am pretty sure that if it were still a skating mecca office workers would love to watch kids break themselves whilst eating a sandwich. I know I would

When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.

Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare foot images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
