In April 2013 I visited Berlin with my LC-A+. I fell in love with the city while she, my camera, fell in love with the Lomography Sunset Strip.
For a while I’ve wanted to find out what’s up with Berlin. I’ve wondered why everybody was crazy about this German city.
I confess, I don’t see Germany as the happiest country in the world. Before visiting Berlin, one might think that because of its dark past, it is a heavy and sad city. But believe me, nothing can be farther from the truth!
I found Berlin to be a true cosmopolitan city, probably because of its central location in Europe. There are people from every place in the world either working or studying in Berlin.
I don’t think it’s the most beautiful city in the world. You see, I’m from Lisbon, so you have to understand my standards. But it has the most awesome ambiance I’ve ever felt in an Western European city!
I visited Berlin in the first spring days and everybody was happy and friendly, enjoying the sun in the parks.
While I fell in love with the city, my LC-A+ found a new love, too. I shot using a Lomography Sunset Strip for the first time and I think my LC-A+ fell in love with it. I never imagined I could be so pleased with this combination.
Come and see the highlights of Berlin and notice the amazing colors that I got with this pair!

One last great thing about Berlin: If you, like myself, are coming from a place with a very small analogue photography market, be prepared to lose your mind! Film in Berlin is available even in supermarkets like Rossmann and DM, and they are very cheap! It was a delight for this Portuguese girl and her dear LC-A+. Now we have plenty of film to use on our next trips!
