    Guidelines for Submitting Location Entries

    The following guidelines have been prepared for you to see what it is that we look at before we publish a location. As you will see, the guidelines allow for personal freedom yet they point out several things that you should think about when writing an entry. A location should be a location. What we mean by this is that a location entry should be a specific place, not a general city. Therefore, Paris is not good, but the Eiffel Tower is great.

    Garden for The Blind @ Queen Sirikit Park

    I am amazed to enter the garden for the blind. It is the first time for me. When I walk through the garden, there is sound from a loud speaker telling about flowers in the spot that I am standing. Everything in the garden is decorated for the blind. It is the segment of the big Queen Sirikit Park. You can enjoy other section, peaceful and harmonious with nature.

    Come Rain or Shine

    These days you can go on vacation all-year round... And, if you don't fancy the slopes and après-ski in the winter you can get jet off to another corner of the globe and catch some rays. It's a good thing that Lomography is an all-season activity!

    Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park

    The largest monolith in the world sits majestically in the center of the Australian landmass. With the beautiful rocks of Kata Tjuta (meaning 'many heads' in the traditional aboriginal _Pinjantjatjara_ language) nearby (well, 50 kms by road distant from Uluru which _is_ nearby if you are used to driving Australian distances!), this is one of the most amazing areas in the world that you can visit.

    Manifattura Moncalieri (Torino)

    I can't remember how many times I passed in front of this abandoned factory with my car, insulting myself for not having a camera with me to take a few shots of this awesome piece of architecture... Till the day I said come on, I have to go there and shoot! So I took my bag with a few cameras and drove to the factory!

    Vlissingen, The Netherlands

    A month ago, me and my boyfriend went for a little trip to Zeeland, Vlissingen, to eat some local fresh yummy mussels. I had my Diana for some months but due the boring Belgian weather and never getting the chance to have some vacation, this was the best moment to take her out for the first time.

    Photokina - The Future is Analogue - September 23-28, Cologne, Germany

    For the fifth time we are invited to present the world of Lomography at the Photokina 2008 in Cologne, Germany. This year we have chosen the theme "The Future is Analogue" both, as a statement of our belief in an analogue future, and a celebration of the unique creative film use coming directly from the one million + Lomographers, who devote themselves to creative analogue photography, embrace analogue lifestyle, and who are the very core of who we The Lomographic Society International are. This opens up a visual dialogue upon which a base for discussion and development is made.

    Aurora

    Aurora Province is located on the East-Central side of Luzon Island in the Philippines. Many of its municipalities were once part of Quezon Province. Aurora became an official province in 1979. This is why when I told some friends I went to Aurora, they said, “Oh you went to Quezon.” I had to correct them.

    This beautiful landscaped park was dominated by the original Palácio de Cristal (Crystal Palace), which was an astonishing building, made of iron and glass, built in 1860 for the International Show of 1865 and having the Crystal Palace in London as a model. It was big enough to receive 10.000 people at a time!

    Duke Street (and surrondings). Liverpool, UK.

    Duke is my favorite street in Liverpool, but I have to admit it wasn't a love at first sight. There aren't the same fashion shops you could find anywhere and no cool places published in magazines, and nowadays it's hard to find.

    Oh Agfa, how could you break my heart and discontinue this beautiful, elegant film? This for me is the x-pro film of choice. Colour-shifts are intense without looking garish, contrast is beefed up without losing detail.
