An amazing Botanical Garden with beautiful glass sculptures.
One of the Jewel locations of St louis is the St. Louis Botanical Garden. I love the placement of glass artist Dale Chihuly http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dale_Chihuly and mosaic artist Nicki Saint Phalle http://www.nikidesaintphalle.org/press/20080107_missouri_botanical_garden . Both of the artists works are a lomographers dream. I have on many occasions wondered around finding great views and angles with the great light plays of the glass. The St. Louis Botanical Garden is a National Historic Landmark. It also has the distinction of being the oldest botanical garden in the United States at one hundred and fifty years old.
The grounds of the Missouri Botanical Garden feature gardens, modern and traditional, and living collections of major groups of ornamental and practical plants. The greenhouses hold a world of conservatories display plants native to lands from the edge of the earth away from St. Louis Missouri. The St. Louis Botanical Garden is also known as “Shaw’s Garden” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Shaw_(botanist) ) Henry Shaw a botanist bought what is now the gardens after he retired at forty years old from family hardware business. He built his home here and began his intense interests in botany one of the largest landowners in St. Louis in 1840. “Shaw’s Garden." Henry Shaw’s was given to the city of St. Louis in 1859. Lomographers when you are in St. Louis make it to Shaw’s garden you will not be disappointed.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
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.

Lomo Lubitel 166+ is a match to the classic beauty of black and white photography. Perennial scenes of city life and nature get the right amount of light and dark, thanks to trusty exposure settings.

Our Lomographers love their Petzval and, as a result, they have taken it to the most amazing places: gardens full of green, immensely busy cities and breathtaking landscapes.
