I have been coming to this beautiful park in North Leeds for the last 6 years and I am still not bored with it even in the slightest bit.
Golden Acre Park is situated in Adel, north of the popular student area of Headingley in Leeds. It can be accessed just off the Otley Road, north of Lawnswood. It is essentially a large park, with a bit of a nature reserve for ducks and birds. There is ample free parking, and usually in summer there is an ice-cream van parked right at the entrance. There is also a nice picnic area in the trees, with benches and tables and so on.
My absolute favourite part of the park however, is the little lake in the middle, you can walk all the way around this (or jog if you are that way inclined). There are ducks, swans, and geese on the lake and it is super fun to feed these, or just watch the little kids feed them. At the side of the water there is a little green gazebo which I absolutely love, though I have no idea why.
From this gazebo you can do birdwatching, or just have a sit down when it starts to rain (which it always seems to when I go there for a picnic – maybe because I always go in winter!). All in all this is a lovely family park and I recommend a visit to anyone living locally.
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.

As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.
With many of the pioneering and successful explorations in space happening during the '60s and '70s, this period has popularly been dubbed as the golden age of space exploration. Missions to the Moon have in particular excited and captured the attention of mankind, who has been fascinated by its mystery since time immemorial.
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.
Ever the adventurous traveler, wil6ka once again shares with us a special story from one of his many trips abroad. This time, it's about spending a meaningful birthday in beautiful Bali just last year.
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.
