Abalone Cove is probably one of the most beautiful and stimulating places I have ever visited. Before I became a photographer I wanted to be a marine biologist... now I think I want to be a psychologist but all three are just self-serving excuses to do what I love.
The last year has been really hard on me… I went through a long bout of un-employment, lost some loved ones, ended a relationship… the usual. The first time I came here I was with my boyfriend at the time and things were falling apart just below the surface. Despite our issues I appreciated his effort to do something special and different for a change and fell in love with the tidepools.
My schedule has picked up soon and my life had gone from depression keeping me from doing the things I love to lack of free time keeping me from doing what I love. I saw a post on LAist that the year’s lowest tides were coming up that weekend and immediately knew where I would enjoy it! My friend Anna is a real naturalist and all I had to do was send her the link about low tide and she was in.
By Friday the forecast was rain all weekend but I was determined to still go out. Anna was skeptical, but the come-and-go rain clouds Saturday morning gave us enough ammunition to head on down. It was beautiful. The clouds were huge and varied in size and shape. The choppy water sprayed and the sea slugs were out in force.
All of these photos were taken with the Lubitel 166+. Most are taken with Kodak 400VC with the exception of a black and white mystery roll with no label. It was my first time using the camera and my fascination with the viewfinder got me through the frustrating first hour of getting accustomed to the controls. By the end of the day I was in love.
Places like this, an escape from the city and a connection to nature; cameras like this that slow you down and force you to look at the world from a new angle… these are things that keep me grateful.
When visiting Sevilla, there is a place that I think you shouldn't miss. It is not often mentioned in tourist guides, but I found it to be a highlight of the city: The Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo.
Previously, I suggested that you walk around Ubud. For he second part of my Lomography Day Trip piece on Ubud, allow me to show you places that are worth visiting. Don't worry, you won't get lost! If you do want to get lost, just rent a bicycle and ride around!
Here's the third and final part of my Lomography Day Trip features about Ubud. To be honest, there are a lot of places there that are worth visiting, but I just picked some of them to help you make the best of your trip. So prepare your notes or travel books and take note of the must-see places that I'll mention below. Maybe one day you'll visit Ubud.

As the iconic LC-A celebrates its 30th birthday this month, we think it's only timely that we look back to Lomography's roots and shine the spotlight on the camera's birthplace, Saint Petersburg. If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!
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!
Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
Kevin Law, a young photographer from Hong Kong specializing in shooting portraits, wedding events, and street snaps, likes to utilize natural lighting and colors to tell the story. Most importantly, he fell in love with the Petzval Art Lens immediately after his first try!
