Our carousel of life has to be fun, lively, and full of color. It is the May Fair that brings color to the city of Leiria, every May, every year. Tradition is to bring the rain back. If there is no rain then there is the real fair.
So many rides, so much music, so much color, so many stalls selling, so many people, so much joy. It’s that event that promises to overthrow the stress and sadness of my countrymen. The May Fair can not cease to exist, we depend upon it to satisfy our desire to laugh and our stomachs too. Well, it’s obviously that we don’t find carousels only. Among many other things we found several huts fritters, sweet and high-calorie fried in oil and dipped in sugar – very addictive! These fritters are a classic tradition. It’s time to relive the moments of adolescence and to meet our favorite “carousel” which cause us more adrenaline. There will be some minutes of revival, adrenaline, fear and laughter, double laughter. I advise taking the Kangaroo carousel and other big and green rides which leaves us turned upside down for about 100 feet tall. Enjoy!
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
This is tribute to the Farm Security Administration photographer, Jack Delano, and his photographic series dedicated to barkers.

<i>Editor's Note: The past several years saw <b><a href="http://www.lomography.com/homes/maliha">Maliha</a></b> frequently moving from one place to another, a sort of nomad who likes the thrill of starting anew and finding her place in every city she stays at. In the last decade she has spent in the USA, Maliha has stayed at six different cities in five different states. Currently, Maliha is based in Denver, Colorado, and "Transient Living," a new series in the Lomography magazine, documents her experiences and the ways that she has come to call this city her home.</i>
Berlin is the capital and largest city of Germany. With its 3.5 million residents, it is also the second largest city in the European Union.

People seek extraordinary experiences while traveling, but not everyone gets to have an adventure of a lifetime. When lomographer Stephane Heinz (popularly known as vicuna in the Lomography community) saw the opportunity, he took the chance to travel and live miles away from his hometown in France. He and his wife, Kathi, came back home with a luggage full of valuable experiences and life lessons. Vicuna tells us about his four-year adventure in French Polynesia in this travel special.
Every year in the beginning of September, a small Italian town situated a few miles from my city of Como hosts an ancient fair dedicated to the Virgin Mary: the Fair of Our Lady of Rogoredo. This series of images fresh from my darkroom was taken using a roll of HP5+ film loaded inside my wonderful Horizon Perfekt.
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.
