Park of the Nations, Lisbon

2010-08-12 6

Park of the Nations is a new and exciting area of the Lisbon. It is a leisure, commercial, and residential area in Northeastern part Lisbon, Portugal, next to the Tagus river estuary. It is certainly an interesting place worthy of a few rolls!

We found ourselves here because we decided to visit the Oceanarium. Once we left the tube station, we were struck by the futuristic views of Santiago Calatrava’ buildings of the bus station and Vasco da Gama shopping mall. Calatrava is also responsible for the Valencia city’s makeover.

Locals quite frequently call the area “expo” as it was renovated in the1998’ World Exhibition. Before or after your visit to the Oceanarium, wander around the marina, take the cable ride (great fun!), enjoy the cleverly programmed “Volcano” fountain and have a drink or a food at one of the multiply restaurants which stroll along the promenade. This place is also very popular among the bird lovers, as the Tagus River’s estuary is one of the largest in Europe. São Gabriel and São Rafael twin towers are impressive, Vasco de Gama Tower just asks to be in the shot and everything around is very new, clean and exciting.
You just can’t stop Lomographing. My mother enjoyed this area a lot as she found Lisbon a little bit worn over for her taste. She also couldn’t figure out why they tile their houses from outside :)

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    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!

    LomoLocations: The Duality of Osaka in Agfa Precisa CT

    The touristic appeal of Japan lies not only in its castles and flower storms, but also in the mix of unique practices and Occidental influences. The duality is evident in Tokyo and even in Osaka, which has gained more visitors over the years. A port city, Osaka has retained its 'merchant' status with a battery of retail shops amid an area of cultural interest.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
