Escape from Madrid and enjoy a natural treasure in Segovia: “Riofrío Palace Forest”. Disconnect from everything for a day and take many photos.
I have plenty of memories from my childhood in “Riofrio Palace Forest”:http://www.spain.info/en/conoce/museo/segovia/palacio_real_de_riofrio.html. My grandpa used to take us there with bags full of bread to feed the deers (too bad those photos are in Caracas and I can’t show them to you). I remember it with such affection that I decided to go there again, this time with some of my cameras, to re-shoot everything. But there was one problem: the hind deers just had their fawns and they were into the forest caring for the little ones, so we saw them in the distance but it was impossible to photograph them.
Anyhow, we took many other beautiful photos and had a lovely walk in a wonderful environment.
I highly recommend this trip if you come to Madrid (just an hour by car) and I give you 3 basic tips:
1.Don’t forget your cameras and film.
2.For lunch, you should go to Segovia to have some “cordero” (yummy lamb). Or go to La Granja to have some “judiones” (big and delicious beans). Or “cochinillo” (little roasted pig) at Torrecaballeros.
3.Go in good company.
If you follow my tips you’ll get a nice day, great photos and a wonderful meal.
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
At the end of March this year, my friends and I went to Bromo in East Java. We went from Jakarta to Yogyakarta for one day before heading to Mt. Bromo. We decided to take photos of everything there with our analog cameras.
Our LomoAmigo, Asher Moss, shows us his best photographs from a week with other creatives to explore photography, filmmaking, modeling, and music.

What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.

From the simple Vivitar 110 camera he received from his grandmother, Brett Wolff already accumulated close to almost a hundred cameras and accessories in his analog arsenal. Some of the cameras he treasured were even handed down by relatives and friends, making these more precious to him. Let's take a closer look at his camera collection.
