Don’t know what to do this summer? How about following the Carters Steam on their annual tour? You’ll definitely get to see some fantastic shows.
The Carters Steam Fair was created by John Carter in 1976. John Carter loved to collect vintage rides, games, and arcade. The caravans from the fair are also vintage. There’s a lot of fun attractions (some of them dates back to the early twentieth century) such as The Wall of Death, Lost Ark, Octopus, Paramount Chairoplane, Rock & Roll Dodgems, and the Victory Dive Bomber.
You might have already seen the fair in movies such as The Krays, The End of the Affair, and 28 Weeks Later.
The Carters Steam Fair travels all over the UK, you can find the fair at West Wycombe this weekend.
Don’t forget to stop by the candy floss machine while you’re there.

Alternative folk act Bear's Den is set to embark on a UK tour to promote the album "Islands," which was released in October 2014. But before going on tour, the British trio, composed of Andrew Davie (vocals, guitar), Kevin Jones (vocals, drums) and Joey Haynes (vocals, banjo), captured some of their summer memories on film with the Sprocket Rocket.
In 2009, Neil Krug uploaded a commercial for Pulp Art Book on Youtube. In the comments section someone asked, “Does anyone know what kind of camera he uses or how he gets his pictures to look the way they do?” Krug was on to something. He did something wildly intriguing, one that looked to have a secret formula.

For Patrice Baunov, film photography is an "intimate medium that shows the interaction between the photographer and his surroundings during a specific moment." In this interview, our well-rounded newcomer from Berlin, Germany talks about his wide range of interests and how he applies Lomography's "Don't think just shoot" attitude on his photography and daily life.
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.
