Situated between leafy suburban Dulwich and the diverse multicultural Brixton is one of London’s best-kept secrets. Herne Hill is an idyllic little “village” tucked tightly amongst the chaos of south London. You can find it by taking a short 5min bus ride from Brixton tube.
I’ve lived here now for nearly 9 years and cannot imagine being anywhere else. There is an abundance of small independent cafes and bars serving amazing coffee and homemade cakes. There is The Half Moon which is an old rustic pub dating back to 1896 which also has live bands, the occasional record fair and still has all the original stained glass windows. There is a local butcher and a cute little “laundrette”. The main attraction in this place is Brockwell Park which boasts of 125.53 acres of land and its very own outdoor LIDO. In the summer, the park is buzzing with picnic goers, runners, and sunbathers and has a friendly, warm atmosphere. There’s a number of festivals, circuses, and country fairs and there is even a toy railway for the kids.
I can’t recommend Herne Hill enough, if you are really lucky you may see some wild parakeets in the park or even pop singer LaRoux having a Sunday pint. If you are super lucky (like me) you may be able to get a shot of “Mr New Orleans”, a local man who always dresses in period 1920s gear including leather braces, spats, and a pocket watch.

What's so great about analog photography? You never know what you will get in the end. Not every film let all of my photos look perfect, some fail, too. Maybe some of you experienced the same. After trying out several film soups and chemicals I finally discovered the easiest and quickest way: chlorine!
Hi, everyone! I'd like to share with you my 2014 summary on analogue photography. Some things I did were completely new, while some were my good old habits. This year I learned how to develop black and white film, which I consider my greatest milestone. But the most important thing is that in 2014, I remain in love with Lomography! And the rest? Well, let's see...
We love sharing photos! So, with the recent release of the beloved Lomo'Instant camera, we thought it would be a great idea to look at some of the best ways to share your instants with the world.

Before the end of 2014, my girlfriend took the plunge of purchasing a rangefinder camera from eBay as a late Christmas gift for me. Let me present to you: the Fed 5. The Fed 5 has been known as a copy of the Leica M3 rangefinder camera. It is inexpensive compared to Leica models. So what are my experiences of using the Fed 5? Read on to find out more.
If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement. To see fellow artists labor over the tiniest detail, to feel the depth of their ambition, to be part of this silent energy—these are priceless perks. The following photographs of University of Art and Design from the 1920s let us sit in on some of these busy classes.
Common advice tells us that Tokyo is best experienced at night. The neon lights of Ginza come on, Shibuya Crossing gets crammed, Ropponggi lets loose. Reverse the advice and we’ll get something like a palate cleanser. The Imperial Palace, Shinjuku Gyoen and small parks peppered around the city offer relief, from morning until late afternoon. Even ordinary streets appeal to tourists. We suspect those secret ramen spots add to the charm.
April Fools! Indeed, you came here looking for a Lomo'Instant Caribbean Edition and what you found instead was the truth behind our little April Fool's prank this year. What a bitter pill to swallow! But don't let this keep you down — there are still many great Lomographic goodies to delight in.
