Following the way down from the mountains in the “Var” department (see other locations of “Bargeme” and “Mons”) here’s is the 3rd place to visit in the area.
Fayence is much bigger than Bargeme or Mons. It is in fact the main city of the area, even if there are only 4000 people. And it’s not located so high in the mountains, just 300meers high. So you don’t have there the same amazing viewpoint as in the previous ones, but you still have a very nice typical and charming old medieval city to visit.
The city was founded by the Romans who called it “Favienta Loca”, that means literally “nice place” and it’s true that it’s a place where you like to stay. It’s a perfect place to spend some holidays (in summer for example…) if you want to have some nature trips in the whole area (and there are really beautiful spots to visit), to enjoy the calm of a little charming city, and even if you want to go to a “big one” like Nice or Cannes, you are not so far away from the coastal highway to reach these cities…
Well, if you’re in Fayence, take your time to walk through the narrow streets of the old city and enjoy the charms of it! :)
I visited Tibet in early June 2009. It was a group trip with three other friends including fellow lomographer, @venusattack. Tibet to me is a mysterious and untainted place. We wanted to go on a trip there because of its breathtaking mountainous scenery and monasteries.
With only a large format camera, rolls of film and a tripod, a Chinese photographer biked his way from the coasts of Shandong all the way up to the mountains of Qinghai to photograph China's modern landscape.
We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
This article is dedicated to Bruce Davidson, one of the most important American documentary photographers and a leading figure of the Magnum agency. Recalling his photos of the Worcester Fire Department in 1999, I'll show you my coverage of Como Fire Department's public demonstration, an annual event commemorating St. Barbara.
There is no permanent way to defy the natural process of time and decay; human ability and scientific process could only delay. Photographer Erik Hijweege visits a repository of frozen endangered species to immortalize them in photographs.

An Argentinean writer and photographer living in the Pacific Northwest, Lorraine Healy is a long-time fan of plastic cameras and is the author of "Tricks With A Plastic Wonder," a manual for achieving better results with a Holga camera, available as an eBook from Amazon.com. In this article, Healy explains how you can find ways to do street photography even if you live in a rural area.
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
