Workshop Highlights: Lomojourney to the Old Fashioned Day at the Park


Scenic Marina del Rey was a gorgeous backdrop for all the retro happenings at the Old Fashioned Day at the Park. Our classic cameras fit right into the scene as we journeyed back in time from the Lomography Gallery Store Santa Monica to days gone by.

We had quite a turnout for the Old Fashioned Day workshop. Who could resist a chance to see vintage Americana beside the beautiful Marina Del Rey? Portrait opportunities were endless: we met an friendly old cowboy who let us take his picture with some of the classic cars, we posed for each other and we saw some fascinating characters on the bus ride, too.

Families with multiple generations were grilling burgers, old timers were teaching youngsters how to manually pump water, music from mid-century filled the air, and our analogue cameras fit right into this scene. The nostalgic sense of eras gone by was so intense that when we boarded the Big Blue Blus to head back to Santa Monica, it almost felt like a time machine!
