I'm pretty sure that all of you have one or more favourite bars to hang out in at night. For me and my friends, the bar of choice is definitely the CMC.
When I started to going out, me and my friends discovered this little alternative bar in the middle of St. Gallen. I’ve known of this bar for around 3 or 4 years already and I’ve always liked going there. When you come in you’ll be on the first floor where you can just sit at the bar and drink something. Some people say they offer one of the best coffees in the whole town but I don’t drink coffee so I wouldn’t know. You can drink other things too. From water to Coke to beer and firewater ;) You can also just read the newspaper or sit there and talk because it’s pretty quiet on the ‘upper floor’.
If you have finished reading your paper or have already drank your coffee you can go down to the basement where the real party starts. In the basement there are always some DJs playing different styles of music. You can here anything between reggae, drum and bass and hip hop. Sometimes the crowd is really into the party and other times there are just some good vibes downstairs. It also has a tabletop soccer where you can play against other visitors.
I really do like this little bar because it’s very familiar and the people there are all very alternative and not so into mainstream. I hope you understand what I mean. ;) It’s perfect to hang out in, to meet friends or have a nice evening. So if you’re in St. Gallen, go and check out ‘CMC’ in the Metzgergasse near the market square.
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but whoever said that must have never shot with a Konica C35. This 46-year-old beauty can definitely hang with the big boys. Come see why this camera is one of my favorites, and why it should be one of yours, too.
As film photographers, I'm sure you, too, have been asked why you still choose to shoot in this medium at least once - whether by a genuinely curious friend or family member, or a disbelieving acquaintance.

Among many equally enticing choices, Paula picked the Diana Mini as her first Lomography camera because of its adorable size and cuteness.

It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

Ever since she started working late hours Tammy had inevitably acquired the habit of staying up into the wee hours of the night, doing nothing but catch up on her favorite websites, eat, and watch television. When nothing good’s on TV or in the Internet, however, she liked to hang out at her room’s balcony, sneakily smoking a cigarette or two while musing about all sorts of things.
