Trains - “Die Bahn”

What do we do when we have to get from point A to point B? We choose the vehicle... Options are endless, but we all know, that planes are fast, but expensive, and on the other hand - cars are cheap, but slow... What to do? Choose trains!!! There is a huge railway web all around Europe, and lots of companies offer different "good deals" for traveling at the very low cost. My favorite is the German Railway, or "Die Bahn" as it is called in German.

What do we do when we have to get from point A to point B?

There is a huge railway web all around Europe, and lots of companies offer different “good deals” for traveling at the very low cost. My favorite is the German Railway, or “Die Bahn” as it is called in German.

It’s the best option for traveling all around the Germany, as you can see lots of good things, which you do not see while driving the car – even more: you can chill out inside of the train and take lots of photos with motion with your lomocameras just because the side windows are huge and often tidy. Die Bahn offers endless ticket prices and variations of them – for example, you buy a ticket for up to 6 people (if I am not mistaken) and you can get wherever you want during the day: change trains, take a nap in a stopover place or even get out of the train and change your trip plans. When to travel? Choose weekends, because then you have the best offers. Where to buy the tickets? Well, everywhere – there are lots of automatic cabins, which are fast but speechless; then there are salesmen and what is more – you have the option to buy the ticket even in the train (I had to do it because I had no time when changing the trains).

The train stations are awesome – cool clocks, timetable stands, people in rush, colorful trains and so on… What film to choose? It depends on what are you going to shoot – if the landscape from your moving train, then choose ISO100. If you are going to do the interesting shootout in one of the train stations, choose ISO400, as they all are covered with housetops, and there you can not find much sunshine… I prefer the train itself – from the colorful seats, sleeping passengers to public WCs, which all have the mirror for your awesome OSCM shot (keep that in mind!). So, where are you planning to go? Ah, nice trip you have in your mind – take a look at the Die Bahn internet site for more information and you will explore the whole Germany in several days. Fast, cheap and very tour-like!

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind. Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding?

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    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!
