A lot of foreigners call all eastern parts of Russia, "Siberia". It’s false. The place I want to present is situated in the east of the Russian Federation, on a peninsula called, Kamchatka. And it is not Siberia!
I moved to Kamchatka when I was twelve and ended up in an absolutely different world! The distance between Moscow and Ivashka is about 9000 km. But it is too difficult to reach this place. You should book a flight from Moscow to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. From there you will embark on an exciting trip on a rough road county in a jeep and car ferry through the river Kamchatka to the village Anavgai. And if you are very lucky with the weather then you will have a two-hour flight by helicopter to the terminal.
The main occupation of people here is fishing, although it’s also a popular way to past the time too. Only hunting can compete with its popularity. I had an opportunity to work two seasons catching fish. Of course I didn’t catch the bait and I didn’t go to the open sea. The main marketable fish is salmon. Fishing is carried out by seine which is situated not far from the coast. A team of 10 men is constantly on a boat in the seine. The round the clock work hours and conditions are cruel! WC overboard. Food is prepared on the boat on a hot iron stove. This was how everything was for us all summer season.
Salmon (as a representative of wildlife) isn’t the only animal that you can find in the seine. Sometimes sharks swim there and you should take them out with a lot of caution. Fishermen consider seals as their enemies. They like to swim into the seine and to regalia with fish heads. On the coast, you can see bears who are in a hurry to do their business. No wonder that The Day of Fishman is the main and most popular holiday in Ivashka. People celebrate it for several days. They drink vodka, eat caviar, and just enjoy themselves! And it is the one chance for fishermen to break the prohibition.
Kamchatka Krai is a place with amazing nature: volcanoes, thermal spring, mountains, lakes, sea, tundra and rich wildlife. The weather is severe. Winter begins in October and ends in May so you can also expect heavy snowfall! The residents end up trying to dig their houses from the snow. The main kind or transport during this time is the snowmobile and the main source of entertainment is winter fishing and hunting!
I’m very happy that I spent some years in this fantastic part of our Earth!

Situated along the banks of the Ganges, the vibrant city of Varanasi is one of the most important in Hinduism.

In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
