Lomo to Lomo: A London Adventure (lukaaus and danlev)

3

On 29th March 2011, (<a href="http://www.lomography.com/homes/danlev">Danlev</a>) and I were in London. We planned a journey that would take us from the Lomography Gallery Store by Carnaby Street to the East London store in Spitalfields.

From Piccadily Circus we headed over to the Lomography Store. After a great little visit, a purchase of a Fisheye 2 for Danlev and a collection of some prophecies posters, we started out for East London.

Passing through Covent Garden and Soho we eventually stopped for lunch at the Lowlander for a well-earned beverage (recommended for a wide selection of great beers).

Following this ‘refueling’, we continued our journey. Passing the Thames River and its sights along the way. This included the Tower of London with the Traitors Gate.

As well as Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Our journey took us up past St. Katherine’s Docks where we stopped for a quick coffee. Using several cameras throughout the day I switched between my LC-A, Holga and a little toy camera, the Eximus Wide & Slim.

Finally, we reached our destination. The Gallery Store in Spitalfields, East London. A great day and some fun Lomography.

Check out (Danlev’s article) for the other side of the camera story.

    Transient Living: Getting to Know the Neighborhood in Denver, Colorado

    <i>Editor's Note: The past several years saw <b><a href="http://www.lomography.com/homes/maliha">Maliha</a></b> frequently moving from one place to another, a sort of nomad who likes the thrill of starting anew and finding her place in every city she stays at. In the last decade she has spent in the USA, Maliha has stayed at six different cities in five different states. Currently, Maliha is based in Denver, Colorado, and "Transient Living," a new series in the Lomography magazine, documents her experiences and the ways that she has come to call this city her home.</i>

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    East and west, old and new coexist harmoniously in the highly-urbanized Southeast Asian city-state, Singapore. Singapore is home to various nationalities not only from around Asia but even from other far-flung countries all over the globe - a true cultural melting pot, with four different major languages and five official religions.
