Amidst the hustle and bustle of this city, there is a peaceful and quiet hill park. Shing Mun Country Park is one such easily accessible location.
Shing Mun Country Park is located in northeastern Kowloon, spanning an area of 1400 hectare. It extends from Lead Mine Pass in the north, to the Shing Mun catchwater road in the south, and from Tai Mo Shan in the west to Grassy Hill and Needle Hill in the east. Building the Shing Mun Reservoir started in 1923 and was completed in 1936. The reservoir has a capacity of 3 billion gallons and was the largest reservoir in the then British Empire (Awesome!).
In a concrete jungle such as Hong Kong, you can discover another side of the city in the countryside. You can enjoy the fresh air, serenity, and appreciate the flora and fauna. There are no convenience stores in the park, therefore, please prepare your own picnic basket. If you had really forgotten about it, you can still grab some stuff from a food store located at the park’s entrance.
Admission to Shing Mun Country Park is free of charge.
From Tsuen Wan Shiu Wo Street, take minibus 82 to Pineapple Dam of Shing Mun Reservoir Terminus or take 40X、46X、47X、48X、73X、278X bus, alight at Wo Yi Hop Road and then walk along Shing Mun Road for thirty minutes to reach the Pineapple Dam.
The Lomo LC-A+ is always the best companion for traveling and wandering around. Hong Kong lies on the southern coast of China and is well known as a metropolitan city and where the Eastern and Western cultures meet and mix. Let the LC-A+ take you around and feel the hustle and bustle of one of the world's busiest cities!
Jürgen Bürgin finds pleasure in strolling through the hustle and bustle of the world's biggest cities and shooting street photographs without being recognized. For Lomography, however, the Film PR agent and photographer from Berlin took a different path, literally! We gave him a Lomo LC-A+ camera for his journey to the French Provence and waited in anticipation for his travel pictures away from the big city.
For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.

It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.
Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.
Berlin is the capital and largest city of Germany. With its 3.5 million residents, it is also the second largest city in the European Union. Berlin has a lot to offer when it comes to culture as there are so many people from many different countries living and working together. Of course, Berlin is also home of Lomography Germany!
Russell Darling is one of our Lomography UK regulars. He is a big part of our community of film fanatics and regularly joins our workshops and events. In this interview, we asked him about his experience shooting with the Lomo LC-A 120, as well as his work as visual effects practitioner for films such as "Star Wars," "Twilight," and "Godzilla."

Some city-based parents feel wistful when they see their kids huddled in front of screens. There is nostalgia for tree climbing, hopscotch and bicycling.
