The LC-Wide Race: Roam the World Without Moving

2012-10-20 3

We can be forever thankful to books and the internet for bringing us to places we can not even imagine being. The leisure that is traveling is sometimes a gift we all can’t receive!

Time and expense: these are the factors to consider. But don’t fret if you can’t take yourself in Paris or Hawaii! For in lovely analogue photos, we are instantly roaming the world!

Just like how the LC-A Race had us; a free journey to various locations in the world through the LC-A racers’ Lomographs and blog posts! It was definitely a thrill to read and see their analogue photos, eh? Now let us go back to memory lane and relive these Lomo Locations!

A visit to Singapore’s Marina Barrage from cyanwater. This is a catchment area of 10,000 hectares, or one-sixth the size of Singapore! Definitely a place for kids and adults to visit and play around.

Then we go to the Maize's Maze in Elvington Lane in York. A maze that is marked within a large field of a crop, these are “spacious paths mapped out the shape of a spaceman” according to hanspan.

Let’s take a plane to Berlin and visit the Teufelsberg (which means Devil’s Mountain in German.) It rises 80 meters high above the Grunewald forrest and is said to contain an estimated 12 million cubic meters of rubble or almost 400,000 buildings! It was built during the time of the Nazis. Amazing details from yoscolmi!

We will keep our travel historical as we go to Sítio da Nazaré in Portugal, all thanks to zulupt. This one is located north of the Nazaré beach just 110 meters above the Atlantic Ocean. Here you can visit the Nossa Senhora da Nazaré church and the São Miguel Arcanjo Fort which became populated in the XVII century. Talk about cultural facts!

For our last stop let’s take a deep breath in Selimiye, a pristine village near Marmaris. A peaceful and quiet location visited by zekiyeayse. You’d definitely love to take a rest here as you are surrounded by hills and fresh air!

Wasn’t that exciting? To be able to take yourself in different places just through Lomographs and an imaginative mind! Well, we’d love to do that again as we are quick approaching the LC-Wide Race. Hey LC-Wide Racers, we’re looking forward to your locations! Cheers y’all!
