The Natural History museum is one of my favourite places to go to in the whole country, and not just because it’s free entry.
Located along Exhibition Road in the South Kensington area of London alongside the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, this landmark Alfred Waterhouse building is almost as historical as the secrets it holds within it’s walls. Established in 1881, the huge array of displays (ranging from entire dinosaur skeletons to a life-size model of a blue whale) never fail to bring in a crowd. The amount of fascinating exhibitions and hands-on activities are too many to list and require a sizeable amount of time to really study and take in, but the architecture of the very building itself is the main drawing point for me. I’ve been visiting this institution since I was a very young boy obsessed with all things dinosaur but nowadays just the appearance of the building itself, inside and out, is enough to give me the chills…and when you team the aesthetics of the building with the ice-rink and carousel located outside the front of the building, you get a perfect opportunity for some lomographic fun!
If you ever have the chance to drop by the City of London, the Natural History Museum should be high on your list of landmarks to visit…and don’t forget to bring your camera!
I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
Common sense tells us that when the weather gets bitterly cold, it's best to stay inside and drink a cup of something warm. But when you have a primo lens like the Petzval, it's hard not to go on an adventure! Equipped with nerves of steel and a Petzval lens, these Lomographers around the globe bundled up and braved the conditions to capture the top 10 wintry (not so) hot spots.
It's Tipstember! For this month, we will be awarding 25 fat piggies to every tipster article that gets published on the Lomography Magazine.

If you don't have tricks up your sleeve, however, you can still contribute to the Magazine and let your voice be heard. Here are some suggestions.

The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
