It’s always been her favourite place to spend her spare time.
It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday again so I thought about taking my mother-in-law to an especially nice place on that equally special day. There is a lake called the “Lister”. It’s about a half hour drive from where we live. My mother-in-law has always loved this lake. Her parents took her there when she was a child and she learned to swim in this lake when she was little. (Hard for me to believe that young parents these days take their child to the swimming pool once or twice a week and after a number of weeks the child is supposed to swim – or not).
She spent hours having fun there when she was a young girl and when she got married and had three boys, they still spent their weekends at this lake. Her husband and the boys went fishing at the Lister and she always joined them .
Now the boys are grownup and one of them takes me to the lake every now and then. I must say it is one beautiful place! It is just so pretty, I now understand why my mother-in-law loves this place so much. She is now a little bit old, quite sick, but still tries to spend some time at the water.
It is Mother’s Day on Sunday so of course we will take her to the Lister!

"I have been living in Portland for about 8 years now, off and on and it does feel like home. It is a great place to come back to after traveling. But I think I am happiest on the road or traveling, it feels kind of second nature to me," explains Portland-based photographer Jeff Luker.

Mere days before my two week adventure I spontaneously inherited Lomography’s original gem of immediate satisfaction. Armed with the most creative take on instant photography yet, I was able to see Salamanca, Oviedo, Santander, and Madrid through a rare lens.

With my visit to the polar station of Ny Ålesund I already got a taste for the far north. But eventually I wanted to get a piece of the real thing. So I went on a journey straight to the North Pole, 90° latitude and a point, where every compass goes cuckoo crazy. It was remarkable.
Sometimes, waiting for the perfect moment to capture on film can be challenging. Here's where our next Lomo'Instant Automat Glass tip comes in handy: all it takes is switching the Bulb mode on and getting creative with some sparklers.
I like to think, that every location I have been writing about in the past years was a discovery of some sort. This story will be about the discovery somebody else made. Wendy Sloboda is maybe the coolest dino hunter of our time. She has tattoos, dreads and she found a new species of dinosaur, that now carries her name: the Wendiceratops Pinhornensis.
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.
