Washington D.C. Zoo

Washington DC can be a fantastic vacation getaway spot. Watch out because there are a lot of people that think the exact same thing. I found that when you get away from the mall and take a nice stroll through the city there are many nice things to point your camera at. The city is very clean (at least parts are) and there are a ton of clubs and things to do that don't involve US history, if one is trying to get away from all that. Of course all the stuff that is part of the mall and US history is really nice too.

I liked the zoo best, but I’m a sucker for zoos. I know people have issues of the animals locked up in cages and what not, but they get fed and bathed everyday, hell lock me up in a zoo and come take pictures of me. The national zoo is one of the cleanest, best maintained zoos that I have ever been to. The animals appear to be happy and well taken care of. It is also one of the largest zoos in the US and they are expanding. You’ll find a lot of tourists here and lots of kids, but hey they need their pictures taken too. The metro will take you where you need to go and you might as well take its picture too.

    My Key to Escaping Digital Confinement: The Lomo LC-Wide

    I'm Nick Page, a graphic designer based in the UK. After 20 years of working in advertising, I returned to film photography five years ago and found that the analogue life was just what I needed to get away from the "pixel perfect" images I deal with every day in my job.

    Lomography Day Trips: A Three-Day Bicycle Route Across Italy and Switzerland

    I live in the North of Italy, near the border with Switzerland. I love to cycle in Swiss territory, because their car traffic is lower than in Italy and because there are nice bicycle paths free of cars and motorbikes. In this article I'll show you a nice three-day bicycle path that I cycled last summer. Take a look after the jump!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    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!
