And I Came Back in Love with Seville

2

In the beginning of February this year, a couple of friends and I decided to make a surprise visit to our old classmates who now study in Seville.

The idea of meeting again with old classmates in Seville excited me so much, but not that much as it was going to be in Seville. I didn’t have a good image of this city, I mean, it didn’t look like “my style” at all. But everything changed when I spent a weekend there. So much that I came back in love with Seville.

Just when I got there I already loved the weather. It was the beginning of February and we were eating in a terrace wearing short sleeved t-shirts while the sun was burning! We set an improvised table in the terrace and stayed there for more than an hour and a half.

After lunch they gave us a tour of the city. Just going out to the street with that heat, listening to the people talking with that singular Andalusian accent and stepping on those stone streets it was such a luxury. Our first stop was one of the most distinguished monuments of Seville, the Giralda and its surroundings.

Afterwards our tour went on towards the also emblematic Torre del Oro heading to Triana. The landscape was spectacular. In the avenue, huge palm trees and orange trees were mixed, houses with Andalusian patios with stone streets as well.

The next morning was even better. We woke up not so early and we had breakfast in the little balcony of their Sevillian flat. At lunch time they proposed to have a picnic in a park that we sure would love. And they weren’t wrong! Maria Luisa park is huge and green, filled with enormous trees and singing birds.

After the picnic we headed to the famous Plaza de España. (Curious fact: a scene in one of the Star Wars movies was recorded there).

Actually this stay in Seville felt really really short, so when I have a couple of free days I’ll spend them there.

Lomo on and… OLÉ!

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    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.

Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.
