I woke up on a beautiful Saturday morning and had no plans other than going downtown to a friend's yard sale. So the first thing that I did was grab my camera bag and head out of the house. I knew I wanted to take some photos but wasn't sure where. After browsing through the great yard sale items, I asked my friend if he knows any places close by that I can snap a few pictures of. He brings up Oakland Cemetery which is only about a mile away from his house.
Upon arriving at Oakland, I am immediately blown away with the beauty of this old cemetery. The place is huge to say the least, and only about 5 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Unlike other attractions around Atlanta, Oakland is a place where you’re free to enter and explore. They do offer walking tours for around US$10, if someone wants to learn more information on the cemetery itself.
Having spent just about an hour walking around, I was only able to explore a fraction of this place.
I would recommend this location to anyone living in or planing on visiting Atlanta. There are awesome Mausoleums, Gravestones, Skyline views and famous residents (Margaret Mitchell, Bobby Jones) as well.
A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

Although she is a trained photographer, Ines quit her job and continued with photography only as a hobby. Luckily she always has enough time for that. Ines creates beautiful, expressive portraits.

The best thing about working for Lomography is having first access to new products. Imagine everyone's excitement when the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M was delivered to the headquarters in Vienna, where members of the Lomography team took turns testing this tiny yet powerful optic on various cameras. Meanwhile, Tom Bates from Marketing teased out the idyllic and colorful possibilities of shooting with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 lens on a trip to the UK countryside.
William Eggleston's photographs are deceptively simple. They have ordinary details and make no grand statements. In this video by Tate, curator Simon Baker explains why his work has more to say than the surface shows.
St. George's Day was sunny and full of energy this year. A group of Morris dancers graced us with their presence around Soho, and we took the chance to do an impromptu shoot with our favorite cameras just outside the Lomography Gallery Store!
