Costa Brava - Llançà and Cadaques

I was lucky enough to spend a long weekend in Costa Brava, in Spain with my girlfriend, friends, and LC-A!

Llançà is a small fishing village in the north of the Costa Brava (translated, ‘Costa Brava’ means ‘wild coast’). It is about 10km from the South of France.

Llanca is very very cute with a nice beach and town. However, my favorite part was the walking path along the coast that you can take for miles to other villages dotted around the Costa Brava.

On our first day, we walked about 12 to the next village and back, but the entire walk is along the stunning coast line. There are many, many little coves along the way, some so small that only 4 people can sunbathe at one time! If you want secluded beaches, then this is a place to head to! While on the walk, the film in my LC-A got a bit messed up when winding on, and the result was a few interesting doubles came out, accidentally!

We spent a day in Cadaques (which is where Salvador Dali is from), which was very quaint. The houses and streets are in a typical Mediterranean style and the village has breathtaking beaches and water! There are many cafes and bars and the village seems to pay homage to Dali and his work!

    LC-A Goes To: Cesena and Cesenatico

    If you want to spend a weekend near the sea but do not want to restrict yourself to the usual routine consisting of the hotel and the beach, I recommend taking a trip to Cesena and Cesenatico, two towns located on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. I did mine by combining sunbathing and cultural excursions.This was documented with my trusty Lomo LC-A. Have a look!

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    My Vinyl Paradise

    “I would like to buy a jukebox.” I've said this many times, so 4 years ago my ex-girlfriend went to my home with a little package. "It's a present for you," she said. I opened it and found a 12" vinyl disc, the single "Woman" by Wolfmother. It was wonderful. "If you will finally buy a jukebox, you shouldn't miss playing this song," she said.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
