Wales, or West wales to be exact is a rugged, tough, windswept place where the people are made of steel and granite and courage. Every year i go there to visit my friends a few times. To this day i have not been there and not been rained on. But that's the magic of Wales.
Wales, or West wales to be exact is a rugged, tough, windswept place where the people are made of steel and granite and courage. Every year i go there to visit my friends a few times. To this day i have not been there and not been rained on. But that’s the magic of Wales. Its a place where that might look better in the rain, none more so than Cardigan Bay. With its vast beach surrounded by cliffs and a view towards Ireland (some locals claim to have seen Ireland from the beach but they must be relations of Steve Austin because i don’t even see ships, only hardships)
Cardigan itself is a very pretty town with a castle that some say was built by Thor. Well it wasn’t. It was built by Gilbert Fitz Richard in the 11th century but its still a good castle. There is a selection of fish n’ chip shops that offer the perfect remedy for warming the cockles although i wouldn’t recommend the one near the church (bit greasy) There is also a proper sweet shop run by a guy with a beard.

Not knowing exactly how to do deal with its odd appearance, Nadica first regarded the Lubitel 166B as a complete monstrosity. She left it untouched on her shelf for months after receiving it as a gift. After using other Lomo cameras and getting familiar with the rules on exposure, she finally had the courage to test it. Find out what made stacy_mcpommes fall in love with the Lubitel 166B in this installment of Weapon of Choice!
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
