A Lovely Lomowalk in Rotterdam

Here you can read the report of a LOMO day at Rotterdam on the 7th of May. It was a lovely, sunny day, and we really enjoyed it!

Because we weren’t able to join the lomowalks in The Netherlands which were organized before, we thought: let’s organize one by ourselves! So we picked a date and we spread the word on Facebook and Lomography.com. We were a little anxious that we would be the only ones to show up but fortunately, we were not alone! Lomography is alive in Holland! :D There were around 12 people waiting for us. OK, we admit, some of them were from the Analog Photo Collective, but HEY! Let the Lomowalk begin!

The location this time was…: Rotterdam!! In photography magazine Zoom, Rotterdam is called the #1 hot spot for photographers, so we were curious. Maybe you can make your own decision about that #1 position after you have seen our pictures.

We were so lucky that Saturday: the weather was beautiful. It was hot! We started with drinks at Café Engels (at a great viewpoint) and telling each other about our cameras and our experiences with LOMO. Afterwards we were ready to walk around in Rotterdam. Luckily we had a number of “locals” with us. Via the Witte de Withstreet and the Museumpark we walked to the Euromast, we relaxed in the park and off course we couldn’t miss the Erasmusbrug. It was a very nice day, so thanks to everybody who joined us and we hope to see you again at the next meeting!

Bye Maaike & Marloes
