    Knokke - Het Zuin nature reserve

    If you are in Belgium, have already visited all the tourist “musts” and still have an extra day or two to spend in the country, you might consider to go on a cycling or hiking tour to the Knokke-Heist area. It is one of the most interesting destinations in the Belgian coast with its 12 kms of sandy beaches and 3500 hectares of polders and dunes, with signposted walking and cycle routes, not to forget Het Zwin, a surprising nature reserve and bird sanctuary that stretches from the end of Het Zoute over the Belgian-Dutch border.

    Love & Sprockets:  A Lubitel 166+ Masterclass

    There is something so exciting about shooting 35mm film through a medium format camera when the sprocket holes on the film are exposed. The Diana+ can do it courtesy of the 35mm back. And with some tape and foam and rubber-bands you can Macgyver something effective on some other cameras. But I’ve never used a camera that shoots 35mm film through the sprocket holes with the quality and control of the Lomo Lubitel 166+.

    Diana F+: A Dive Into The Past!

    When I decide to make a trip somewhere, there is nothing better than my Diana F+. Instead of buying some postcards, I actually prefer taking some shots with my jewel: you cannot imagine anything more vintage and retro! That’s why I strongly recommend this camera to all the travelers and nostalgic of the ‘60s.

    Lubitel With a Plus

    I found my first lubitel on ebay. She came from Ukraine and had the lovely name 166. Shipping cost more than the camera herself. She arrived and I saw she’d been used before. Some parts were a bit broken or missing. I shot a few rolls, always thinking about the shoot from the hip rule and have not been looking through the viewfinder.

    Nazaré

    Located in the center region of the Portuguese Atlantic coast, Nazaré is one of the most beautiful and traditional village at the Portuguese sea shore. The name Nazaré was given to this village in the 4th century due to a statue of the Virgin Mary that has been brought by a monk from Nazareth, Palestine.

    My Lubitel+ Story... A Walk in the Park

    Over the past couple of months, I have had the great privilege of testing out the new "Lomo Lubitel 166+":http://www.lomography.com/lubitel166+/ to get a feel for this amazing new camera. One of my favorite things to do, ever since I first discovered Lomography, has been to just go out walking with a camera and pockets stuffed with film, to just let the world come through my lens. It's a way of heightening your senses and really become attuned to the world around you. It has always been, for me, a very intimate approach to taking pictures, and if someone asked me, I'd say that's what Lomography is all about.

    Tipster Of The Week: With Or Without Lubikin

    By now, you must have heard of the new king of Lomotown- the Lubitel 166+ made its debut recently together with his faithful assistant, the very optimistic Lubikin which exclusively is in charge on any of the camera's internal 35mm affairs thus making the Lubitel a very un-modern but hip, bi-format twin lens reflex camera of its kind.

    Arctic Summer

    Lofoten is a group of islands in the north of Norway. Despite being north of the arctic circle the atmosphere is warm and the nature is wild and beautiful with white sandy beaches and steep mountains. The people there are humorous and open (more so than the rest of the Norwegian population, it seems!

    My LomoStory by zulupt

    I discovered Lomography on a tiny article at the last page of a magazine, it had a really tiny picture of a Supersampler (I think it was a yellow one) but no sample picture, that plastic camera with four lens really catch my eye and I remember thinking “that’s awkward, a camera with four lens for 50€, I should get one for me” but time passed by and I forgot that tiny plastic wonder.

    Foggy Night in Ötztal Bahnhof

    When it is getting colder outside and nights are accompanied by fog it is time for a spooky night walk through Ö., the village where I live. The time is right when it has rained and the air is still humid so that the street lights outside have some blurry glow. The streets are deserted then and a whiff of mystery is in the air.

    Once a good friend of mine told me about an old tunnel somewhere in the mountains near the place I live. It is some kind of secret which everybody knows but nobody could tell where exactly you can find this tunnel. But Ronald found out where the entrance is and where the tunnel leads you to – he’s an adventurer with heart and sole.

    My Lubitel Story:  A Tale of Romance

    After acquiring several cameras, they've all seemed to settle into their respective roles. Like a little camera society! My Holga tends to be the party animal - taken whenever there's a get together or a club outing. Diana likes to go with me to museums and galleries. My Feds are respectful and noble, used for weddings and 'serious' photography. The 'Samplers' are spontaneous and fun. Now what about Lubitel? Oh, Lubitel, why she's the most adventurous of all.
