Third Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

Those lovely hot air balloons took flight again at the Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta!

It’s the third year for the Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. I have never been to any of those fiestas and I would surely want to go to this year’s – and yes, I did!

For those who are not familiar, PUTRAJAYA INTERNATIONAL HOT AIR BALLOON FIESTA is a annual event to promote Putrajaya as travel a destination. Hot air balloons from all over the world are gathered in one place to be exhibited to be public. This year marked the third time this event has taken place in Malaysia.

I went with a group of Lomographers who called themselves the Lomorangers. Even if the weather was unpredictable, I believe we captured great moments of this event. Enjoy!

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    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.

    Testing a Yashica TLR Camera After 55 Years in Storage

    Though I am not a professional, photography is in my genes. My father was a photographer and technician in the Air Force and accumulated a number of cameras during his life. This is a story about one of those cameras, a Yashica 635 TLR. I brought the camera—after being in storage for about 55 years—back to life with a roll of Portra 160 during the golden hour at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington.

  • Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
