I love Paris...

5

I love Paris in the spring time. I love Paris in the fall. I love Paris in the summer when it sizzles, as Ella Fitzgerald sang…and who doesn’t love Paris?

One of my favourite places in Paris is Montmartre. Not only for the fantastic Sacre Coeur and the amazing views of the city, it’s also a place for bohemian artists, painters, and nowadays, souvenirs and tourists. But after the compulsory sights, one can try to get lost in less popular streets and pretend to be a bohemian artist (a Lomo bohemian photographer maybe?). And when you’re tired, you can look for the moulins, or you can take le Rue Lepic and look for Amelie’s bar!

And that’s one of the things I love about Paris, you can find beauty in every corner. Not only in Notre Dame Cathedral or the Eiffel Tower (always packed with tourists), but in any café looking at St. Martin canal, in a metro sing, or in a boulangerie trying a delicious croissant.

And don’t forget these romantic grey roofs that cover so many Parisian houses.

Who’s the next to go and try a Parisian Lomo shot?

    The New Petzval Lens Through the Seasons

    The New Petzval Lens is not only known for its elegant brass exterior, but most importantly for the swirly bokeh effect it can bring to photographs. It makes a great portrait lens and performs exceptionally when taking photos of subjects against textured or lit backgrounds, day or night. And it does all these, in wet or dry weather; in any season – winter, spring, summer, or fall.

    Lomography Day Trips: Lisbon, The City of Yellow Trams

    I divide people who travel to Portugal into two groups: those who prefer Porto and those who like Lisbon better. I love Porto, it's a little gem, but if I ever lived in Portugal I'd choose Lisbon in a heartbeat. It's got everything big cities have while staying beautiful and romantic and the same time.

    Lomography x Zenit New Petzval Lens: Wandering Through The Big Apple

    There’s something about New York that attracts people, something that makes both visitors from the most bucolic places and tourists from the most cosmopolitan of cities fall in love. Countless movies and television programs have been filmed in New York, and so many songs have been written in reminiscence of the place. It’s not just the Empire State Building, Times Square or Broadway; there’s something special about the streets and the people who walk on them that make spectators stop, look, and listen.

    Hands-on Experience with the Lomo'Instant

    What I got is the Lomo'Instant Black Edition. Its texture and finish is quite simple, and could work as creative space for someone who's into DIY and decorations. In terms of form, it is very handy and acceptable in size. I also love the camera strap that makes it easy to carry.

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
