High flying on the Skyline Drive. 105 miles on the Skyline Drive along the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The speed limit never goes over 35 miles per hour. Elevations ranging from about 2,000 to over 3,500 feet above sea level. 75 scenic overlooks with unbelievable views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Over 500 miles of hiking trails. 101 miles of the Appalachian Trail.
You can spend an entire day just driving from one end of the park to the other. You take a break about halfway to eat. Thanksgiving leftovers which consists of chicken and stuffing sandwiches with pumpkin roll for desert. Your eyeballs want you to stop at every overlook you pass, but the sun is going down. Driving out of the park at dusk can be dangerous for the amount of deer that graze by the side of the road. Keep your wits about you and a sharp eye and you should make it out A Okay.
The next day, you tackle a 10 mile hike that you couldn’t complete on your previous visit due to a horrendous allergy attack and stupidly choosing to wear uncomfortable skateboarding shoes. Piece of cake this time. I don’t think the sights and sounds of Shenandoah will ever grow old. Our next mission: Backcountry camping in the belly of the beast.
The Korean Peninsula is very mountainous, especially in North Korea. The landscape has affected the mentality and economy of its state. The beauty of Mount Kumgang and other mountains ignited myths and tales for a whole nation living on a rock.
In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

Named for the Italian city situated in the Lombardy region, overflowing with art and culture, say hello to the colorful aesthetics of the new Lomo'Instant Milano, the latest member of the Lomo'Instant family!
The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
On my birthday, I climbed the holiest mountain of Bali on a genuine pilgrimage. Walking towards Pura Besakih is also a tale about Balinese Hinduism, which is a singularity in Indonesia. So tighten your sarong around your hips and stick with me on this spiritual passage through the gates of heaven.
With an expanded field of view and its ability to produce high quality images and capture minute detail, medium format photography has become the top choice of many photographers. Lomography is working hard to make sure that it keeps going with the continued production of medium format film and cameras.

Take your Diana F+, Holga 120, Lubitel 166+ or the new Lomo LC-A 120 and show us your best square shots!
Lomography is thrilled to have been invited to the press event for "Strange and Familiar," an exhibition curated by Martin Parr at the Barbican Centre, London. We took top photographer Lomokev along to snap some of the photographers involved in the show.
These blue-tinted photographs were taken by Edward S. Curtis, renowned ethnologist and photographer who had also worked on the set of the 1923 silent epic film not only as still photographer but also as the second unit cameraman.
