    Castle Riegersburg

    Castle Riegersburg is situated above the Styrian village Riegersburg on a 482m high volcano rock. You are able to reach it by foot or with an elevator. To walk up means to use the original path leading to the entrance of the imposing castle - it is over 850 years old and was impregnable for hundreds of years.

  • The Holga 135BC: A Boy Finds His Camera

    The Holga 135BC: A Boy Finds His Camera

    Last year around this time, I was interning at a local newspaper. The editor asked me one day to go out and take some pictures for them with a little digital point and shoot. The editor was so impressed with my shots, he wondered if I had taken any photography lessons. "No", I said. "You have a great eye for it, though. You should think about taking up photography." So a few short months later my birthday rolled around, and after having a discussion with a friend who was familiar with Lomography, I decided to blow some birthday money on a Holga 135BC. Well...what a joy that has been.

    LC-A+ Week Oktober

    Another change of seasons is upon us. Whether you're walking around a college campus, the backstreets of your small town, or a misty forest at dusk, the LC-A+ is always ready to spring to action, even in the Fall. This month, we've teamed the LC-A+ with some truly special partners to make a spectacular Dream Team. We're also happy to give you a free roll of one of the best films in the world, Ilford's pinnacle of black & white films - SFX 200 when you buy an LC-A+ or Wide Angle Lens. And we're going back to school with the latest batch of Lomo Amigos who all have one thing in common - they were interns for Lomography!

    Dream Team Packages: LC-A+

    The greatest constant in the photographic world has always been black & white film. From fine grain to dynamic contrast and heart-wrenching tones, black & white is the choice for time-spanning, emotional photography. And what better way to capture your timeless autumnal adventures than in full-frame 20mm super-wide angle with the greatest accessory ever produced for the LC-A+, the Wide Angle lens.

    Vai Palm Beach in Crete Island

    The exotic sandy beach of Vai with the unique palm trees wood in Europe is situated at a distance of 94 kilometers far from Aghios Nicolaos at the Northeast and 24 kilometers eastern to Sitia. It has been named after the word “vagia”, meaning “palm tree” or “rims of palm tree” in Greek. According to the local legend the wood had been grown from the stones of dates thrown away by Arab pirates or Phoenician merchants set ashore at the place.

    Huber's Farm (Borden, In)

    Every fall we grab a posse and caravan from Louisville up to Borden Indiana to Huber's farm. They have tractor rides out to pumpkin patches, you can pick your own apples, and they have a wonderful selection of fresh produce! This year we had about twenty people and spent the day laying in the grass, eating apples plucked fresh from the tree and running through the corn maze. I highly suggest that everyone nearby make an effort to go next October!

    Capitol Hill

    This place is lomographic magic. Mother nature and (father?) city all in one happy little plaza. Last April, I got the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C. This was the city in which I bought my very first lomographic camera! I picked up the lomo fisheye no. 1 at an Urban Outfitters store and started shooting right away.

    The Docks (Galway)

    The Spanish Parade (more commonly and mistakenly referred to as simply "the Arch") is a haven for tourists, wastrels and those looking for a convenient and picturesque place to get drunk in the warm(ish) Galway Summer months. Go through the Spanish Arch (built in 1584 to keep out the mad Spanish Armada) and walk down the Long Walk past quaintly multicoloured houses facing the swan hangout of the Claddagh Basin across the bay.

Let me introduce you my Lomo guru, "MissKhali":http://www.lomohomes.com/MissKhali!

    The Courthouse Extension by Gunnar Asplund.

    Erik Gunnar Asplund (1885 –1940) is my favorite Swedish architect. I've seen some of his works, but I have to admit that when I stepped inside the Extension of the Göteborg Courthouse (1917-37), my heart almost stopped! It is still working as courthouse, and if you ask for taking pictures there is no problem.

    A Lomo Lubitel 166+ Dream Team

    The "Lomo Lubitel 166+":http://www.lomography.com/lubitel+/ is a remarkably versatile camera. With the right film, some patience, and a cable release, you can pretty much shoot in any conditions, and not even be limited to one possible option to get the right exposure. Because of the multitude of possible settings, you can shoot long exposures at f-stop 16 or even 22 for great depth of field, or even shorten your exposure a bit at a smaller f-stop and take portraits in any light. The Lubitel+ doesn't mind, because it puts complete control in your hands in every way.

    Sheffield City Hall

    On a recent trip to Sheffield I went to see the mighty boosh live instead of going to the dingy but rather good clubs. The train is one of the most effective ways to get into Sheffield, many of the best pubs and clubs are within 10 minutes walking distance and the city hall is within 15. Sheffield's city hall has very romanesque architecture and looks out on a large square with 2 symmetrical fountains that go blue at night, mixing the old and the modern.

    LC-A : Must... Stop... Shooting!

    Whoops... I can't! Holy crap I love this camera. I know you hear it all the time. Everyone loves the LC-A. I didn't buy into what I thought was just hype at first, either. I heard 'LC-A this' and 'LC-A that' and never really understood why I shouldn't just photoshop a digital picture. Then I bought one. It was like a revolution.

  • Ithaca

    Ithaca

    You have surely heard the name of Ithaca (Ιθάκη or Ithaki in Greek) in connection to Odysseus (or Ulysses), hero of Homer’s epic poems Iliad and Odyssey. The truth is it’s still unclear where Odysseus actually existed or whether he was from Ithaca (the most likely it’s that Homer was from the island or at least lived there).

    I have been to Morib Beach (Pantai Morib in Malay) since I was in a secondary school. That time I did not have any camera and nothing that could help me to capture the memories. Until I fell in love with Lomography, I took this opportunity to go to this beach again together with my dearest family, my lovely Lomo & SLR camera.
