I was over the moon when I saw the email 'You are one of our prophency winners'! I swear my heart skipped a few beats! From that day onwards, I daydreamed of the trip, running through the wardrobe for my summer-fashion-parade in Europe and stocking up on my films!
It was 9 years since I last visited Europe and I was super excited about this, especially as I was going to visit Lomography HQ! I also took the chance to extend my trip to travel around Central Europe – I’ve always wanted to visit, so thank you Lomography for granting my wish!
First Stop: Budapest
Melk Abbey & Krems – Just a few hours outside Vienna
I love Melk Abbey and especially, Krems, a peaceful quaint town.
Vienna – Ffinally!
Such a chic city with a vibrant arts scene, chic people enjoying a high quality of life. Lomo folks in Vienna, I am so chic-fully jealous of you!

Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.
Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass (just like the original Petzval lens) and features premium glass optics. Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.
Here's an idea we've came up with to make liking on Lomography even easier: allowing you to like photos on the overview page. Right now we've only unlocked it for albums – so please give it a try before we roll it out throughout the site!
