Every other year the Steinhuder Meer – a huge lake in Lower Saxony near Hanover – freezes.
When this happens, although everybody is talking about global warming, the people that live there (like me) and a lot of tourists can’t resist to go ice skating. In 1998 and 2009 there was an ice festival because the Steinhuder Meer almost froze completely so that the area you have for skating is about 30 square kilometers large (that’s the size of the lake). Which doesn’t mean that you can actually ice skate on the whole of this area but theoretically. On some areas the ice is always very thin and it is dangerous!
But there is enough ice left to do whatever you want: play ice hockey, play curling , go ice sailing or try to ride your bike on ice. Usually the Steinhuder Meer freezes in early January. This happens almost every year. But it seldom happens that the ice is to thick that we can have an ice festival. The Steinhuder Meer is close to Hanover which you can easily reach by train. From Hanover you can take a suburban train to Wunstorf and then take a bus to Steinhude.
The '90s was a memorable, incredible decade. Apart from the founding of Lomography and the community, there were other fads and pop culture icons that made noise, forever etching in the minds of many. Twenty-five years later, we still make memes out of "Clueless".

Christmas truly is one of the most wonderful times of the year -- everywhere just looks like part of Tinseltown as glamorous Christmas lights, outdoor music and carols, huge red-and-green cut-outs of Santa Claus, and of course, the Christmas trees. Mid-century, the trees get their makeover.

Color plays a huge but 'subtly-there' role in films. They give out the message and intention, the mood and feelings without being obvious. And David Fincher is no exception to manipulating our perception through his conflict-loving palettes.
Going on vacation with little children will always be memorable. Something unexpected is bound to happen even before the trip starts, as recalled by Simeon Smith who went on a rather eventful family holiday in Lake Garda.
Most venues will have a huge in caps policy for "NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY" but when the only lights you have are on stage or just a light bulb in a basement or coffee shop, how do you capture a good exposure? These are the tips and tricks for shooting great photos with little to no light and no flash.
