I recently took myself on a little lomowalk around the less famous Hyde Park corner in Leeds, LS6. Although not as famous as its London counterpart, it is great for a bit of an urban lomowalk.
I used to live in Hyde Park a few years ago when we were all students. It is a vibrant area, just north of the main university campus and cutting through the 2 sides of Woodhouse Moor with lots to see and do, particularly as a photographer. Beautiful graffiti decorates almost every bit of wall space and I love visiting regularly to see what pieces have come and gone.
There is also a skate park and play area on the park itself if urban sports are your thing or you have young children. However, I like to visit the quirky cafes and shops which line every side of the major crossroads marking the area.
I am also a big fan of the lovely Hyde Park Pub on one of the corners, marking the area and making it always full of chatter and laughter. It also comes in handy in the summer months when you are spending the day at the park and need to pop off to the toilet and get a nice cold drink.
A recent lunchtime break turned into a big analogue adventure when I took the Lomo'Instant camera out with the Splitzer and captured a gloriously sunny day in the heart of Soho, London. I learned a couple of great tips about shooting with this new accessory. Read on to find out more.

The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
