True to its name, this is one of the famous spot to go to especially when summer comes in Vienna!
The Bellevue (French for “beautiful view”) meadow is a well-known spot amongst the Viennese people. Especially in summer the place is quite frequented. It’s one of these hotspots in Vienna where you can overlook the whole town. You can go there for a picnic, for playing volleyball or something else and last but not least nuzzle with your partner! But don’t forget – you will be in company – and yes, in smooching company!

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.
Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
When it comes to Marilyn Monroe and "The Seven Year Itch," the first image that comes to mind is the actress' famous skirt scene. Well, here's another way to look at the iconic actress in this classic comedy film!
The cold weather is steadily creeping in at Lomography HQ in Vienna. It filled us with nostalgic joy to discover a whole new selection of wonderful end-of-Summer photos taken with the LC-A 120 throughout the Austrian countryside by our colleague Dream. If you also have the early winter blues, this fantastic gallery should help soothe the pain!
Though I am not a professional, photography is in my genes. My father was a photographer and technician in the Air Force and accumulated a number of cameras during his life. This is a story about one of those cameras, a Yashica 635 TLR. I brought the camera—after being in storage for about 55 years—back to life with a roll of Portra 160 during the golden hour at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington.

Cuban culture inspired the new edition of Lomo’Instant. Like Havana’s color blocks, the new camera has an aquamarine shell. It also comes with Fisheye, Portrait and Close-Up lenses—all to celebrate the spectrum of delights in this summer locale.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
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!
