Planning to spend some time in Dortmund ? The former "Steel City" is now a good place for shopping and culture. Dortmund has a lot to offer...much more than a hot cup of Starbucks coffee.
Located in the center of Dortmund there is a beautiful church called the “Reinoldi” Church. You can go upstairs to the panorama platform. The steps that you have to take aren’t that many and it’ll only take you about five minutes to get to the top. From there you’ll have a wonderful view of the whole city. Take your time and shoot some lovely panoramas. The city seems to be endless. You see many other churches and you can watch those busy people down there. ;-)
When you get back to the ground, you will see an underground station almost next to the church. Don’t forget to check out what’s underground by taking the underground train and after leaving the train several times you will find great underground stations that will look just fantastic on your photos! You may bring your tripod cause of the long exposure times! Enjoy the business down there and have a good time in Dortmund!
Porto, the second biggest city in Portugal, has a lot of interesting architectural sights to offer, from the prestigious concert hall Casa da Musica to the social housing complex designed by Alvaro Siza Vieira.
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.
As a professional photography graduate, Fernando never goes out without carrying at least one camera and treats it as an integral part of his body. Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
