My favourite spot to get some sun is definitely BOSTON.
It’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world , that’s for sure. I visited Boston last year for the first time. After I lived in Philadelphia for a year, I really expected Boston to be full of noise and dirt as well (I love Philadelphia though!). People keep telling me that Boston is nice and clean and kind of European, and I was surprised HOW nice and clean it is in fact.
A lot of decent neighbourhoods and beautiful views wherever you go. To get around, take the bike or just walk. Everything is pretty close together. To see all of Boston you might wanna go on the “Duck-Tour”. Amphibian-Vehicles take you all over the city, even on the river! :-) It’s a lot of fun. To take a breathtaking view of the whole city, go on top of the Prudential Tower. What you see from up there is just unique! To see beautiful fishing villages, take a ride along the coast towards Maine. To really enjoy wonderful sandy beaches and NICESUNBATHS be sure to visit Cape Cod. Go for endless walks by the ocean and then look for the really good restaurants on Cade Cod.
What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!

Previously a music journalist, Stephen Dowling now writes for the BBC. If that isn't interesting enough, London-based writer is also passionate about film photography. He has blog called zorkiphoto where he writes about all his favourite cameras and film types. The folks over at Lomography UK lent him an LC-A 120 and, as you'll see in a bit, he managed to get some wonderful shots.
Toby Mason (aka fotobes) is one of our favourite UK-based Lomography fanatics. We love his photos and decided to lend him an LC-A 120 for testing. Get to know Toby and catch a glimpse of his stunning photos.
The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
The Lomography Sprocket Rocket - my first analogue camera ever - and I have had some troubled times behind us. We have been involved in a stormy love-hate relationship for several years. But in the end, we luckily managed to get over ourselves and overcome our problems. Now he's my old time favorite. Old love never rusts, that is.
December is here and with it comes lots of festive cheer and some exciting events and workshops at the Lomography Gallery Store Soho. Read on to find out more and to book your spot this Christmas Season.
The brand new Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves around the world this week. In an attempt to celebrate the home of the ol' bean and the cod, we ventured out in search of some classic Boston flair. While we couldn't find a baseball match or a proper clam chowder, we did have a blast chasing red brick walls and spicing up our photo shooting with some iconic American flavors!
