Nuclearodvinsk (Severodvinsk, Russian Federation)

2

Recently my girlfriend invited me to spend New Year's holidays in the north of Russia, in Severodvinsk. I have never been there and I was so glad to visit it. We bought tickets, brandy, and warm sweaters.

Severodvinsk received city status in 1938. At the beginning, only shipbuilders lived there. For a long time Severodvinsk was closed to all people, except citizens who worked in it. The Soviet Union’s first nuclear submarine “Leninsky Komsomol” was built here in 1957 and at the beginning of the 1980s, the world’s largest submarine, “Typhoon class submarine”, was also built here, which was later recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Earlier, the main factory (Northern Machine Building Enterprise-SEVMASH), built about 4 submarines per year. But now only one in two years. The shipyard is situated in Yagry Island. It is far from the city center. The island is located in the White Sea. Here you can understand why the sea is “white”, it is difficult to differentiate the sea from the sky in winter. The sea is rather cold but the townspeople like to swim there, especially in July. There is a city beach equipped with all the necessary things. Practically all buildings in Severodvinsk are modern and simple in their architecture.

    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.

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    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.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!

    Kick-Off Country: Kicking Off the World Cup Blues in Paris

    Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.
