Public Transport

4

Public transport in Torino. For the trip back you can take the underground if you like, but I can’t do anything for you. I never used the underground.

To get around the city of Torino if you don’t have a car you have to use public transport, just like in other big cities. But in Torino this is an adventure. The underground isn’t very developed so you have to take the bus and sometimes the tramway. Bus lines are very long. Too long in fact. When you don’t live downtown, a bus journey can take almost an hour wherever you want to go. If you’re lucky you can take only one bus, if you’re not you can change 3 or 4 times… Before getting on the bus you have to buy a ticket because bus drivers don’t sell any.

No ticket machine at the bus stop, so you have to find an opened tobacconist in the area to purchase a ticket. When you’re going somewhere you must know how to get there. At the bus stop there’s only a list of all the bus stops (names and numbers), no map. Once you’re in the bus you have to pay attention to what’s going on outside if you don’t know very well the city because no list or map can help you from inside the bus. Be careful! You have to change for an other bus but you can’t find it… Wait, I get it. The GTT’s (Gruppo Torinese Trasporti) website told you that it was a bus but it’s not, it’s a tramway that comes directly from the 70’s. As orange and uncomfortable as at that time. You finally arrived safe and sound. For the trip back you can take the underground if you like, but I can’t do anything for you. I never used the underground. Good luck!

    The Go! Team in Dublin: No Flash Photography Please

    I have to admit that I’ve never liked using flash in public places. In some situations it can be distracting. Like concerts, for example. Can you imagine a live music show where people decide all of a sudden to use it at the same time?

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    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.
