"Don't like the weather? Wait twenty minutes." - Scottish saying. I thought the bad weather would never end and I'd never get to see the beach on Benbecula that I'd dreamt about for weeks. Check out the beaches of the outer Hebrides!
We’d been on the road for almost two weeks, we’d had sun, rain, wind and every time we’d come close to one of the many giant beaches of the Hebrides in Scotland, the mist closed in, the rain came down and we got stranded in our tent.
Then we got to Benbecula (Beinn nam Fadhla), a little island between the larger islands of North and South Uist. It takes various trains, buses and ferries to get there, and that’s exactly how it should be.
The sun was out. The beach was massive. There was nobody else for miles around…so we did a little dance!
Barbora Smoláková's first brush with lomography started with a Diana F+ Deluxe Kit. With its variety of accessories, the Diana F+ allowed her to explore the endless possibilities of creative photography. In this interview, she opens up about her experience shooting with this versatile camera and how it helped her appreciate the beauty of ordinary things.
A hat is in the position to be noticed before any other item of clothing. Its shape and texture can immediately call to mind cultural associations. A cloche is to 1920s fashion as a picture hat is to the 1900s. The wide-brimmed or fur-lined variety, on the other hand, is more functional for tribes.
Mary Robinson has shown a natural talent for photography even at such an early age. Even when she was first featured on the Magazine in 2011, her images already made an impression on the Lomography Community. Her work has evolved in the span of four years, but its quaint beauty remains.
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.
