From the moment me and my girlfriend decided to walk the last twelve miles to the festival I fell in love Glastonbury.
The energy of the people and the place just bounces off each and every person who cascade through the gates. From the many avant-garde artists, performers and lunatics the sense of excitement doesn’t ever leave you once you have attended the festival. Like vampire tasting blood for the first time, it’s leaves you wanting more and more and more.
My personal favourite area of the festival is the Park Stage. As you walk though tall black and white stenciled flowers to enter the area to your right a sand castle of Michael and Emily Eavis faces tickles your sides.
As you walk further up the hill past the many joyous people who surround you, you spot the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. It’s exactly how I would imagine LSD to be like.
Oddly shaped tables, chairs and beds. People dressed in to most amazing colourful vibrant costumes.
As the legal trip starts to fade you can hear something in the background. Walk a little further up there is a small tent filled to the top with cushions with everyone inside either playing a musical instrument or singing their hearts out. On the outside there are children peeking in with their hands covered in clay from the tent next door.
During the evening It’s just as beautifully crazy and full of the most loving care free people you could ever want to meet.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results.

My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
The Glastonbury Festival is arguably one of the most anticipated and renowned music festivals in the world. It is a joy to be able to watch it, and a privilege to capture scenes on and off stage.

Japanese photographer Taio Konishi photographed this year's Glastonbury with a Petzval 85mm Lens, and here are some of the photos. He also talks about his Petzval-meets-Glastonbury experience in this exclusive.

What makes travel a great experience is the newness of things. The environment, people and culture tend to be different from customs back home. Coming from the Philippines, I found a lot of novel things in the United Kingdom, especially in the city of London.
Performing on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury Festival last year was one mean feat for Lancashire, England-based electronic musical duo Aquilo. With three EPs and a full-length album on the way, the band has caught considerable attention and received positive reviews.

You know that place you always picture in your head when you think of your dream holiday destination? That was Machu Picchu for me. Last May I decided to go for it and embarked on a two-and-a-half-week trip around Peru with my boyfriend.

Everything I had fit into eight boxes and two suitcases. That’s all I had collected in my 22 years on earth, eight boxes and two suitcases. My friends and I moved to Brooklyn in the dead of winter, just after a huge snowstorm. I came from California and had no real experience living in snow. All of it was magical to me.
