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.

Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.
Between the end of July and the beginning of August this year, I traveled around Spain, from Barcelona to Gibraltar, then up to Toledo and again down to Zaragoza. With photos fresh from the lab, I'll show you the wonderful architecture of the City of The Arts and Sciences of Valencia in this article. Take a look after the jump!
I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
Our LomoAmigo, Asher Moss, shows us his best photographs from a week with other creatives to explore photography, filmmaking, modeling, and music. He escaped to Joshua Tree for three days with the LomoChrome Purple and a few other artists. Check out the vibrant purples and blues that make the LomoChrome Purple, as shown in the Asher Moss' photographs.
The London Analogue Festival celebrates everything analogue, from music art, film and of course photography too! This year’s festival takes place at the OXO Tower in London from September 12 to 14. Lomography will be hosting a special Sprocket Rocket Workshop on Saturday, September 13. It’s completely free to attend but booking in advance is advised. Read on for details.
Of course, Italy makes a great destination for taking photos. But what if there was a place where you could find stunning motifs, impressive colors, and the ideal mixture of nature and arts all at once? What if I told you that there is a place like that: a garden full of art in the middle of nowhere?
