We thought after the success of the Manchester roadshow, us Northern lomographers would get on arranging or own meetings until we have a store in our neck of the woods. The first one is coming up at the end of July.
So I wrote a blog entry which you can have a read of here
There has been quite a bit of interest so we are going to go ahead with a meet up on Saturday 30 July in York. We will have our very own local guide in the lovely jimw08. I have put 10:00 as a meeting time but realistically I think I will sit in Costa Coffee in the train station from 10-10:30 so people have time to find us, call us if necessary and get organised. I have never actually been to York rail station but I have had a look at a map of it and there appears to be a Costa in a WH smith opposite the main entrance/concourse area. Please anyone correct me if this is not right!
The specifics of the day are going to be decided by our tour guide but I think we are going to head off from the station and visit York Minster first. Then we will be visiting the Shambles (oldest shopping street in Europe), the city walls and riverside at various points through the day. We will finish around 6pm we think in an ice-cream parlour which Jim is a big fan of. Obviously if people want to leave before then that is fine and equally I am sure there may be some stragglers who’ll head off to a pub in the evening.
It would be really great if I could keep a bit of a count up of who will be attending and how many so if you could indicate in the comments if you will be there then I will PM you my mobile number in case you need it on the day.
Anyone is welcome to join us so feel free to send this article to friends and lomographers alike, and hopefully I will see you in York.
When experimenting with new rolls of film, it's often the first roll that brings both the most joy and the most trial & tribulation. We want to start highlighting some successful first attempts here on our Magazine with our films. The first in this line up is Brian Bruno aka Brunoroids.
Today, we gain altitude with Ben Nardini, director of photography and pilot of drone for Almo film production. Passionate about image, whether static or moving, Ben meets the LC-Wide in the LGS in New York. He is taking this little analogue camera everywhere ever since, even when the good fellow leaves for Alaska. Let's go for a special meeting "from the top"!
The art of design intertwined with social networks and textile articles, we mix it all up, include photography and there it is -- magic happens. At least that is what Rita Cordeiro ends up giving us: beautiful images through her Instagram, either in a personal approach or for some specific brand.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
This coming August, ten photographers from Whidbey Island, including Lomography Community's Lorraine Healy (@lorrainehealy), will be showcasing a diverse selection of visual works---from film photography to lithography.

Breathe, eat, and sleep like a photographer. Thanks to museum curator Lisa Hostetler, you can now peruse your photographer's favorite plates, dishes, and mixes through "The Photographer's Cookbook". Who knows, you might just inherit whatever superpower these renowned geniuses have.
In an age where everyone owns a camera, with the capability to produce photographs, we've become all entitled to partake in the art of photography, whether we're doing it consciously or unaware. And we've all been guilty snapping our smartphones and cameras on delicacies.
