On April 2, lomographyNLD organized a Lomo meeting in Amsterdam. A second meeting in such a short time (remember the meeting in Nijmegen?), how great was that?! The day of the meeting, there was a pillow fight on "De Dam" in Amsterdam as well, a great opportunity to combine the two events.
That Saturday I went to Amsterdam a bit early. I hardly ever go to A’dam so I wanted to do some shopping as well. So I was an hour early, at 13h. It was the first sunny day of the year and quite warm in Nijmegen (where I’m from). When I walked outside the Central train station in Amsterdam it was very windy, but still warm and sunny. I walked to the centre of A’dam and it was so crowded that my mood for shopping was gone in a second. I entered some shops, bought a nice red skirt and decided to wait for the others and walked around “De Dam”. Then I went to the meeting spot and met lomographyNLD for the first time. Some people from the meeting in Nijmegen where also present, yay!
Then we walked all together to the place where the pillow fight was. There were a lot of people and all brought their pillows. We only brought our cameras but it was still so much fun! Everybody was laughing and hitting each other with the pillows. There where so much feathers whirling through the air that it was sometimes hard to breathe. And all of us where covered with the white feathers.
After the pillow fight, we went for a little walk, had some ice cream, and enjoyed the sun. After a while we all went on our own way. I was home quite late and when I woke up the next morning my whole bed was covered with feathers!

This autumn, Como hosted a very important sporting event: a 6,000-meter rowing race on the lake. The race was first held in 1893. After 123 years, the Trofeo Villa D'Este has been revived. I documented this event with my trusty Praktica camera and two lenses, a 50mm and 135mm.
The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.

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.
I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!
It is always a pleasant experience collaborating with our old friends and LomoAmigos. This time, Emily Soto shot another wonderful series with her Petzval Art Lens. We can't wait to share it with everyone, so here they are!
