As much as I love my quirky hometown of Austin, Texas, I love to escape to my wonderful lake house on Lake Buchanan in the scenic hilly county of central Texas. Fun can always be found on this relaxing lake!
I’ve lived in Texas for all 16 years of my life and Lake Buchanan has been a huge part of it. Every summer of my life has been spent at my lake house situated on the beautiful Lake Buchanan. What sets it apart from many lakes is the fact that it is not in an urban area. No, when you visit this lake, you’ll get a full immersion in to the friendly country-folk of Texas. Because the lake is so big, there are many places to explore. Why not go to the waterfalls? How about some rock jumping (there are many good places for that)? You can even keep it simple and go to “Picnic Island”, pull your boat right up to the shore, hop out, swim, explore, and eat.
What also sets Lake Buchanan apart from other lakes is the fact that it is so calm. There are plenty of boats on the lake, but they never congregate in one area, so you never have to deal with a “busy” day. You can go out on the lake on any given day and never find it too busy or full of boats. There is no way that I can compile every thought and memory I have of this lake into one article. All I can say is this: if you are ever in the area, be sure to hang out on the waters of Lake Buchanan. I guarantee a good time!
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
My friends and I teamed up with Photo Art Pro to spread analog love to the Zaporozhye community. Last month, we hosted a Yeti Scavenger Hunt and had a LomoKino camera as prize. We challenged participants to shoot a roll of film based on a checklist. It was tremendous fun!

As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
