Current and Classic Architecture in London

3

Any city that has not remained paralyzed with the time, has an ancient part and a modern one.

So far, everything is clear. There are cities where the breaking point between some and others is clear, but in other cases, nevertheless, the difference is not so clear.

In London, as in many other places, the catastrophes have left his trace (fires, …), but it is a city that has been able to be filling his streets of buildings, bridges and emblematic parks. Come to this point, someone can wonder …: what?

The secret is to play with them to include them in photos that reflect his union, not his alienation. Personally, I like to photograph the old buildings reflected in modern windows, or join some and others, as if there were the same (or doing that a big crane supports the weight of British Museum …).

Walking along London, each one can find the best way of combining, joining, putting up, mixing or differentiating all kinds of buildings.

    LomoLocations: The Duality of Osaka in Agfa Precisa CT

The duality is evident in Tokyo and even in Osaka, which has gained more visitors over the years.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.

    Lomo In-Depth: The Defining Role of Women Photographers in Art History

Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.

    The Petzval 85 and 58 Lenses remain favorites among Lomographers because of the quality bokeh, perfect for making dreamy portraits, à la classic paintings. But portraiture is more than just showing off a pretty face in a classic, vertical orientation: It's a marriage of elements. Think of it in terms of attitude and personality.
