Café Gartensalon is probably one of the most wonderful and most colourful cafés in Munich at the moment. If you have some spare time, you should definitely go and try the home-made cakes there!
You can find Café Gartensalon at Türkenstraße 90/ Amalienpassage. While there are dogs and children playing outside the café, surrounded by dozens of colourful plants, you can not only order coffee inside, but also eat incredibly delicious, home-made cakes and (on Sundays, from 10am to 2pm) the finger-licking good breakfast/brunch buffet.
What’s more, there are paintings hanging from the walls which you can also buy, and there are painted chairs and self-made things everywhere. The Gartensalon is really a place to feel comfy at, especially because there are lively colours everywhere – and loads of great things to take pictures of.:)
I adore the home-made cakes and jams and love the fact that they are so dog-friendly – and I always felt welcome and kind of at home there.
If you’ve been following the Lomo LC-A-to-Z, then you’ve probably aimed below waist level, been yourself, crammed with everyone, done the duckface, enjoyed every instant, and fallen in love. Now’s the time for you to go wild!
Have you ever had the feeling that you plan too much? It’s not a bad thing, really. It’s just that you may be missing out on some of the greater things happening at the precise moment you’re plotting your schedule, and you’re missing a lot if all you do is plan all the time.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

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.

“I would like to buy a jukebox.” I've said this many times, so 4 years ago my ex-girlfriend went to my home with a little package. "It's a present for you," she said. I opened it and found a 12" vinyl disc, the single "Woman" by Wolfmother. It was wonderful. "If you will finally buy a jukebox, you shouldn't miss playing this song," she said.
Leuven is a typical Belgian university city that is full of students, but feels a bit like a ghost city when all the students go home for the weekend. Nevertheless, this is the perfect time to pay a visit to this beautiful historic city just right next to Brussels. If you like culture, cobblestoned streets, creativity, and Belgian beers, this is your perfect day trip!
If it's your first time to use the Fisheye Submarine Case (with your Fisheye One/Fisheye No.2 cameras) or the Krab Underwater Housing (with your LC-A+ or LC-Wide cameras), you might still feel a liiiiittle bit anxious about taking your favorite cameras underwater. To help ease your worries I gathered some of the most helpful tips, straight from summer-lovin' Lomographers who braved the waves with their cameras!
Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!
