For the past few years, everytime I am in Taksim, I want to go to Flavio! They have the best pizzas in town and even more, they are friendly and cheap!
Flavio has been my favorite restaurant for the past few years. They were owned independently, but had become a part of a local chain of restaurants. However, that did not change them at all!
Flavio is located towards the end of Istiklal Street, in the street where there is the Adidas fashion store. They have outdoor tables and also a few tables inside. We tend to sit inside during winter but there are massive heaters on the outside too, so that’s also an option. The menu mostly consists of Italian-inspired dishes like pastas and pizzas and they have great appetizers too! And the prices are more reasonable than most other places.
We usually go there with hubby or our friends, probably every other week! So if you ever come to Istanbul and looking for a different taste, make sure to stop by Flavio!
Iconic photos from the past are hard to pass by. They just have this certain look and feel to them that made them memorable but an ad campaign for a newspaper in Cape Town, South Africa put a modern twist on some of them. Here’s a clue – selfies.
Summer is always thrilling and worth looking forward to. There are so many exciting things to do: trips to the seaside, chilling out with friends with beer and music, and going on surfing holidays, to name a few. To make summer even more fun is the ongoing Summer Bazaar in the Lomography Online Shop!

Lomography Japan has been working with CAMPFIRE, one of the country's largest crowdfunding services. In the past year, we have launched three successful projects such as the campaigns for the Lomography Smartphone Scanner, Petzval Lens and the Lomo’Instant, and Campfire has been helping us reach out to our supporters in Japan. Koh, Campfire's Senior Project Manager, has been involved in all three. Also a lomographer,she is no stranger to our products and has even shot with the new Petzval Lens.
A year ago we started a series highlighting the very best LomoKino movies. We asked you to share your LomoKino masterpieces for a chance to be included in our monthly compilation, and you happily obliged. Now we're proud to present the Best of the LomoKino for the past year - enjoy!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
Who do you think deserves the crown for the best 35mm SLR camera? Canon and Nikon will always be in a two-horse race to the top spot in the consumer to prosumer SLR/DSLR market, having developed reputations as two of the biggest go-to brands. Representing the Canon corner, I can safely say the Canon EOS-1N is by far the best SLR I have ever used.
I have been using the Diana extensively for the past two years. It was actually the camera that got my into film photography (something that I am so grateful for). So I have compiled a list of Diana tips for y’all…
In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.
