When going on a train ride lots of people take a book or newspaper with them so they've got something to do . I don't like reading in the train so I get bored pretty soon after having left my home town.
When I went on a long train ride a couple of weeks ago to see my friend in Bavaria I decided to take my Lomo Spinner with me to take pictures out of the rolling train.
I’ve made a whole bunch of Timescans over the past weeks. And it’s always a big surprise to see the way they turn out. I had done a few Timescans out of the car (not me driving the car! :-D) and that gave me an idea…
Making Timescans out of the train is more difficult, because you have to act instantly, when you see something you wanna scan on your film. Once you missed it, there’s no second chance. You never know, what the picture will look like, because it all depends on how fast the train is and on how fast you react and turn the handle of your Spinner. But it’s lots and lots of fun (and don’t mind others looking at you!)
I took three rolls of film and after three to four hours of riding the train they were full of railroad images and I had to get myself a newspaper…
It's probably normal for a lot of people to travel on their own once in a while, but for me, it was a huge undertaking that kind of required me to prepare myself. So, when I finally took the plunge, it felt like I was doing something wild -- at least, travel-wise!
Here's the third and final part of my Lomography Day Trip features about Ubud. To be honest, there are a lot of places there that are worth visiting, but I just picked some of them to help you make the best of your trip. So prepare your notes or travel books and take note of the must-see places that I'll mention below. Maybe one day you'll visit Ubud.
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

A few months ago, Lomography made available a whole range of pinhole cameras made out of premium wood. Interested on knowing how good they are, I brought the medium format one on my last trip to Germany.
