Lomo to Lomo: A London Adventure (lukaaus and danlev)

2011-05-09 3

On 29th March 2011, (Danlev) and I were in London. We planned a journey that would take us from the Lomography Gallery Store by Carnaby Street to the East London store in Spitalfields.

From Piccadily Circus we headed over to the Lomography Store. After a great little visit, a purchase of a Fisheye 2 for Danlev and a collection of some prophecies posters, we started out for East London.

Passing through Covent Garden and Soho we eventually stopped for lunch at the Lowlander for a well-earned beverage (recommended for a wide selection of great beers).

Following this ‘refueling’, we continued our journey. Passing the Thames River and its sights along the way. This included the Tower of London with the Traitors Gate.

As well as Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Our journey took us up past St. Katherine’s Docks where we stopped for a quick coffee. Using several cameras throughout the day I switched between my LC-A, Holga and a little toy camera, the Eximus Wide & Slim.

Finally, we reached our destination. The Gallery Store in Spitalfields, East London. A great day and some fun Lomography.

Check out (Danlev’s article) for the other side of the camera story.
