Do you think you know all beautiful spots in Barcelona? Think again! Discover one of Barcelona's best kept secrets: El Laberinto de Horta.
If you think about planning a trip to Barcelona and put together a list of places to visit, that list will likely include world famous landmarks such as La Sagrada Familia, La Rambla, Parc Güell, Casa Batlló, Paseo de Gracia, Barri Gòtic or even FC Barcelona’s Camp Nou, if you’re a hardcore football fan. And while that list will get you a few rolls of amazing pictures there are quite a few unkown spots in the city that are worth making the time to visit before you take the flight back home. One of those places is El Laberinto de Horta.
El Laberinto is Barcelona’s oldest garden, built in 1791 by the owner of the land at the time, Mr. Joan Antoni Desvalls i D’Ardena, and was expanded and remodeled several times until Mr. Desvalls’ descendants donated the parc to the city in 1967. Covering over 392,000 square feet the park is now a public space for everybody to visit. Any given weekend day one may find parents playing hide-and-seek with their kids and young couples holding hands and getting lost in the maze together, all trying to find their way out while inevitably smiling. It is also a very popular spot for weeding photo shoots and the perfect place for the whole family to have a picnic together.
So if you ever come over to Barcelona make sure you grab your lomo camera and spend an afternoon in El Laberinto with your family, your girl, your guy or your friends, it is guaranteed that you will go back to the hotel with a smile on your face and tons of cool pics to upload to your Lomo Home.
In 2009, Neil Krug uploaded a commercial for Pulp Art Book on Youtube. In the comments section someone asked, “Does anyone know what kind of camera he uses or how he gets his pictures to look the way they do?” Krug was on to something. He did something wildly intriguing, one that looked to have a secret formula.
What's so great about analog photography? You never know what you will get in the end. Not every film let all of my photos look perfect, some fail, too. Maybe some of you experienced the same. After trying out several film soups and chemicals I finally discovered the easiest and quickest way: chlorine!
What’s not to love about the Lomo LC-Wide? If you are a fan of wide angle lenses or Lomography, you probably have one in your collection. The LC-Wide is a powerful camera with many fun features to get creative when shooting. Best of all, all these are already built into the camera.
Someday, getting rid of unwanted memories will be as easy as popping a pill and waiting a few hours for the desired effect to kick in. Literally a bitter pill to swallow (you'd think that with all the advancements in science then, they would've already made, say, fruit-flavored ones like the vitamins you loved as a kid), sure, but effective nonetheless.
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.

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.
