The Viaduct of Millau on the A75 highway (from Montpellier to Clermont Ferrand) is one of the latest important architectural achievements in France. It's just above the valley of the river Tarn, near of Millau (department of Aveyron) and is 245 meters high in the middle.

The famous architect Norman Foster designed this monument 1996, and the work began 2001 until 2004. It’s a very impressing place, the landscape with the city of Millau is amazing and the monumental bridge imposes his white and modern architecture over a huge valley!!! There’s a special parking (after the viaduct if you’re coming from Montpellier, before it if you’re coming from Clermont Ferrand) where you can have an overall view and take pictures.
A lot of tourists are there in the summer, sometimes coming especially from far places only to see this construction! I often take this highway to go to the old family house we got in the countryside of the “Massif Central” and never stopped before last summer, I only saw it on the road itself (but it’s very impressing too). I decided to stop and a great crowd of tourists was there! After a little 5-10 min walk I arrived to a little hill where you got the best point of view of this monument. Very great moment, I shoot lots of pics with Holga and Fisheye :)) Just have a look at the pics and for more information go to http://www.viaducdemillau.com/accueil.php :)

One of the great things about photography is that we can look at the world and preserve that image on print instead of just looking at it again and again in our heads. Also, we can create a world as we’d like it to be – with everything just the way we like them.
Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
This is a homage to another important street and social photographer who captured the essence of the life in Paris. As a multi-faceted and versatile artist, he was involved in street photography, urban details, and experiments in pictorialism. In this article, I pay tribute to this great artist and one of his most important books: "Graffiti." Read more after the jump!
Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

This is the story of my first adventure on the beach this year. In the middle of June, I took my first sunbath along the seaside on a small public beach in Varazze - a rather small and unkempt place which I will never return to in the future. Read more to find out why!
For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
