Ever since I moved back home to Puerto Rico, I rarely get to see my nephew Dorian (who lives in New York), but when I do see him, I’m constantly taking pictures of him.
Taking pictures of my nephew is a lot of fun, not only because he’s so cute but also because it can be quite challenging. Dorian loves to run around, so taking pictures of him is not an easy task. Recently, I discovered a trick to get him to calm down long enough for me to take some pictures: hand over my Holga. He loves winding the film and all the clicking sounds it makes. I think we may have a future lomographer on our hands.
Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.

Abandoned locations are often surrounded by an air of mystery and beauty that beckons the adventurous ones to venture into them and have a look around. A few years ago, hodachrome and his friends had the opportunity to visit one such facility in Fukushima.
