I randomly stumbled upon the Thriplow Village Daffodil Weekend last month and thought it's worthy of a Locations article.
If it’s a typical English fete you’re after then the Thriplow Village Daffodil Weekend is just the thing for you. For one weekend in March each year, the whole village opens its arms (and gardens, roads, cricket grounds and barns) to visitors interested in buying arts & crafts and of course, daffodils.
Just 7 miles outside of Cambridge, Thriplow is a quaint village and it’s fete offers something for everybody, including:
Heavy horses giving dray rides
May pole dancing
Sheep dogs working
Live birds of prey
Steam traction engine
There are also food stalls, arts & crafts and clothes stalls:
And of course, a country fete isn’t complete without some Morris dancers!
So although it’s been and gone for this year, its worth noting in the diary for next year. :)
If you love to craft or design things yourself, you can draw a lot of inspiration from these two creative women. You may have already stumbled upon Sophie and Catharina on the web, be it at hello handmade, workisnotajob, superwork, supercraft or their youngest project, lemon books.
Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!
A couple of weeks ago, my family and I celebrated Hari Raya after a month of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. Since the first day I laid my hands on the Lubitel 166+, I've always had the thought of taking portraits of my family. So this year, I finally took them. Here they are: Hari Raya Portraits!
She stumbled upon the Community last year when she was looking for a lightweight camera that she can easily bring during her backpacking trips. She settled on a Holga 135 BC, which she fondly calls "Hogs." Meet our Newcomer of the Week, Marilia Costa or also known in the Community as macosta!
February is here and the daffodils are out! We've got a great selection of workshops lined up this month. Learn how to get amazing shots with the Lubitel, transfer your favourite image onto a bag with our Lumi Paint workshop and join our Valentine's LC-A + workshop. We've also got a great exhibition from photographer Chris Pollard and you're all invited to the opening night. Read on for all the details.
Have you ever thought that your photos were worthy of having its own exhibit? Well, maybe it is! Take a chance and show us your most creative photographs. From the accidental shot that was taken from your hip or even the posed perfection you ask of your subjects, send us your best photos that define you as a person.
When a group of Viennese students stumbled upon the Lomo LC-A a couple of decades back, they were astounded with the images the small enigmatic Russian camera could create. The photos were bathed in saturated hues and cloaked in lovely vignettes – unlike anything they had ever seen.
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
