What do you think about when you see old and abandoned structures that are too close to falling apart?
I don’t know about you, but I think such places are fascinating. Old buildings usually look different from the newer ones standing today, especially if they were constructed in a certain style. It also makes me wonder about the stories surrounding these places, since knowing them makes the experience of stepping into them more interesting. While it’s true that sometimes it’s just a case of its former residents transferring to a newer building (or some other practical reason), there are also times that the reason’s a more sinister one. But whatever the case may be, it can’t hurt to know about them!
If the idea of exploring an abandoned building sounds appealing to you, or it doesn’t but you’re still wondering how one looks like, then have a look at some of these photos our users have taken using the Lomo LC-A and Lomo LC-A+ cameras!

You know that moment when you’re falling asleep, almost dreaming and you start to see images that are a bit surreal, that you cannot quiet explain? The work of Brazilian photographer Nádia Maria reminds us a lot of these mysterious moments.
Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
The "Be An Explorer" campaign was launched last week. Apart from the 80-metre long LomoWall outdoors, there is also a Lomo'Instant Wide and Petzval Photo Booth, allowing you to experience the instant photo and the classic bokeh effect of the lens. Let us see what happened!

There are many components that transform street photography shots into masterpieces. Besides the people, unexpected details or unique situations, perspective is a powerful tool that can change common buildings into urban wonders. We picked some excellent examples from the German community as inspiration for your next LomoWalk. May you see the city in a new way!
