Instead of waiting in line to visit museums and monuments, I suggest you visit the open air museum of street art just by wandering in Granada.
Since the very first moment I arrived, Granada became one of my favorite cities. Of course I had to visit Alhambra (wake up at 5 am and wait in line for hours while raining) but I must confess I had a better time just wandering around the city. The Albaicin quarter is amazing and it seems that everywhere you go there is art on the walls!
Back home and after having my article Street art at Granada about the work of the artist El niño de las Pinturas published I went through my archive and found out more great graffiti I shoot in Granada. Some I can recognize as from “El Niño de las Pinturas” and other are anonymous work so I separated them in two galleries.
I know that this is only a tiny sample of great things Granada has to offer but graffiti is one of my favorite subjects, specially when holding a LC-A in my hands!
If you are in search of a lesser known European city full of nice examples of art and architecture, I would recommend that you visit Palermo, the capital of the region of Sicily in the South of Italy. This city is rich with wonderful churches, squares, fountains, and other important monuments and buildings! Take a look after the jump!
On Thursday, May 1st, all the shops in the Carnaby Street area will open its doors late for a big shopping extravaganza organized by Grazia Magazine. Lomography Soho is just off of Carnaby Street and we will be joining the celebrations with a 20% discount on products and a special La Sardina workshop. Find out more after the jump.
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!
While I have been making attempts to do some street photography in the past two years, I must confess that I've let my introverted side take over countless times, resulting in half-baked (and sometimes half-hearted) snaps. However, once I started letting go of my inhibitions and just immerse myself in the task and experience, I found that street photography forcing my eyes open on so many things.
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.
One of the great things about photography is that we can look at the world and preserve that image on print instead of just looking at it again and again in our heads. Also, we can create a world as we’d like it to be – with everything just the way we like them.
