I love Covent Garden. The current markets in Covent Garden (the Apple Market and Jubilee Market) are memories of a time when Covent Garden was the main vegetable (and flower) market in London which was moved out to the new Covent Garden Market in the 70s. I have to admit that I am a fan of My Fair Lady and when I am in Covent Garden I often sing “Wouldn’t It be Love-er-ly” in my head…or to any unfortunate friends that I am with. Today it is vibrant and bustling with life, just as it was when it was still a functioning vegetable market. Today you can pick up craft pieces or jewelry in the Apple Market or have your palm read in the Jubilee Market.

Vicuna is one of my best friends and wherever the wind takes him I will catch a paraglide to meet him. I did so, when he chased turtles in Polynesia and now, when he is digesting cheese in Switzerland. My prerogative was to hit a mountain on my birthday and so we did.

In the olden times, traveling was a rather intimate hobby. How so? To share one's journey to the unknown would require effort. Effort, in the sense you'd have to send them a keepsake with notes on the back. So why not relive the tradition of sending postcards with the Lomo'Instant Square?
The '90s was a memorable, incredible decade. Apart from the founding of Lomography and the community, there were other fads and pop culture icons that made noise, forever etching in the minds of many. Remember those Calvin Klein waistbands? We remember them, too.

Collage has been around since the invention of paper in China, and it has evolved throughout history. The earliest and most familiar point is when Surrealists and Dadaists began adapting the technique in photography. Here, we have today's trends on contemporary collage.
