Cincinnati

1

I have lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for my entire life. I have seen many things here, but there is always something new (or old) to discover in or around the city. I seldom venture into the downtown heart of my metropolis, but one day I decided to walk block after block while on foot with my LC-A. My friend and I had parked near a local pro shop after being disappointed with the film services and products they offered.

I have lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for my entire life. I have seen many things here, but there is always something new (or old) to discover in or around the city. I seldom venture into the downtown heart of my metropolis, but one day I decided to walk block after block while on foot with my LC-A. My friend and I had parked near a local pro shop after being disappointed with the film services and products they offered.

We decided to head toward our city square, Fountain Square. As we walked down wide concrete sidewalks we saw countless skyscrapers bearing down over us. I was impressed as I rarely see skyscrapers up close and personal. We continued walking and passed a park with several statues of American presidents who were from Cincinnati. I quickly snapped two pictures of William Henry Harrison, who was president for only one month because he died from a cold he caught while reading his two hour inauguration speech in the cold rainy weather. We continued toward Fountain Square and I snapped some pictures of a few towering buildings that surrounded us. In all, it was an interesting and fun filled day. I promise to visit my city’s downtown more often, even though parking is sometimes a nightmare.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    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.

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.

    LC-A Goes To: Cesena and Cesenatico

    If you want to spend a weekend near the sea but do not want to restrict yourself to the usual routine consisting of the hotel and the beach, I recommend taking a trip to Cesena and Cesenatico, two towns located on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. I did mine by combining sunbathing and cultural excursions.This was documented with my trusty Lomo LC-A. Have a look!
