    Diana+ 35mm Back - The Dawn of the Sprocket Hole Era

    The 35mm back for the Diana F+ has made the world a better place to live in, I have always loved this technique, to be able to have part of world imprinted on the film sprockets is fantastic, to have a kodak of fuji sign on your forehead is also cool!

    Nion FM3a - Nikon Analog at it’s Best.

    The FM3a is the last film SLR designed by Nikon, back in 2001. It is an hybrid camera, which features a complete set of detailed manual controls with a few extras like an automatic aperture priority mode and the possibility to do TTL (Through The Lens) automatic flash photography. It can do just about anything, including multiple exposures. it's rugged, and it's fully operational lifetime is measured in decades, not years!!

  • Quiahuiztlan (Veracruz, Mexico)

    Quiahuiztlan (Veracruz, Mexico)

    In Mexico`s history, this place was a city with 17,000 inhabitants before the Conquest, and it was in this place where the Spanish first set foot in Mexico more than 500 years ago. Today it is a small village, with fishermen, boats, a few houses, a good restaurant also called Quiahuiztlan and 2 or more miles of beach for yourself and some few more visitors. Even for winter days, it`s a good option for eating seafood, getting a tan (or becoming red if you`re too white), and swimming. Q: Why? A: Because it`s Mexico, and there the winter does not exist.

    Every time I go to Veracruz from Mexico City I try to take photographs of the desert from the bus, because I really like the moving landscape, and being in the middle of somewhere. Mexican desert is the best, magical, with lagoons, unknown archeological sites, lizards, UFO`s (some people say, and I would like to lomo-prove it), and much more stories and characters travelling or living around. Lots of things to do, places to stop for a few minutes to grab a bite, or simply to buy things from people waiting by the road bumps. It is nice, your vision gets lost, your mind wonders, and the finger keep pressing the shutter.

  • Condesa Neighborhood

    Condesa Neighborhood

    Mexico City`s coolest and hippest neighborhood, the best place to see and be seen, art galleries, book stores, fashion, boutiques, cool restaurants and bars, beautiful streets and parks, and really nice Art Deco buildings from the 1920s. Very safe place also, but sometimes a little bit expensive, but it`s worth it. Having a walk, skateboarding or playing soccer (in Mexico you can play soccer everywhere), so always have your sneakers on, no boots, please, our legs will appreciate it. Eating in one of La Condesa`s multiple restaurants is relaxing, fun and satisfying. It`s also an LC-A paradise, so shouldn`t forget to bring a lot of rolls with you.
