Little Venice on the LC-Wide and Other Lovely Lomography Cameras

From Regent’s Park to Regent’s Canal to Little Venice, it doesn’t get better than this mini adventure to take amazing pictures.

There’s nothing better than walking along Regent’s Canal on a sunny weekend after a week of taking the tube and going to work. I usually start my walk going down Regent’s Canal taking the pathway next to the London Zoo. As you go down, you can either go left (to Camden) or right to Little Venice. Rumour has it that the name Little Venice was used by the poet Robert Browning to describe the area of Maida Vale overlooking Browning’s Pool, but Lord Byron was the first to compare this part of London to Venice. It’s a 15-minute walk with a lot of fantastic photo opportunities along the way:

Once you get to Little Venice there’s plenty of things to do in the area such as the London Waterbus Company, Puppert Theatre, the Cascade Floating Art Gallery, and don’t forget to grab a drink at Canal Café Theatre.

For those of you who don’t live near Regent’s Canal you can always take the tube to Paddington Station, it’s a few minutes walk to Little Venice from the station.

If you’re an admirer of John Masefield’s poetry you can go see the house where he wrote his most well-known poem: The Everlasting Mercy, at 30 Maida Avenue.

Needless to say, Little Venice is the place to be for aspiring writers and poets.

The Lomo LC-Wide boasts the newly-developed 17mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens. This 35mm camera wonder is the perfect companion for your photo expeditions. It produces eye-catching splashes of colour with astonishing saturation and contrasts with the added versatility of 3 different formats. Open up to a new photographic experience with the LC-Wide, available in our Shop.
