    Smena Symbol Winners

    The second rumble for the Smena Symbol is over. The first time around we felt that there were not as many submissions into the night shoot category nor the b&w sections as we had hoped for. Hence we called for a second rumble!

    Kodak Ektachrome EPR (120, 64 iso) user-review

    Beautiful Kodak slide film with the finest grain size possible! This is my everyday film for all my medium format cameras. The Ektachrome EPR delivers the perfect color saturation and contrast which makes all your images dramatic and beautiful. When cross-processed, sometimes you’ll get a mild blue shit and a little extra color; but sometimes you’ll get these greens and yellows that are amazing too!

    Photoautomat in Hamburg

    A wonderful discovery of the wonderful black and white Photoautomat at Feldstraße in Hamburg. I guess you all know those old instant photo booths where you could do 4 different snapshots (originally for using those pictures in your passport) or get as many of your friends into the cabin and try to get all the heads on one picture.

    Khao San Road, Bangkok

    At the busy neighborhood of Banglamphu north of the Grand Palace lies the famous backpacker's Mecca: Khao San Road. Chaos is constant in Khao San, a pulsating plethora of multicultural, gastronomical and commercial life... true to the images swirling in my head as I read Alex Garland's cult-classic-turned-blockbuster about a secret paradise with a dark side, called "The Beach" :

  • Doubles With Subject

    Doubles With Subject

    If you make doubles with yourself, you can shoot a whole layer on a certain subject. Then rewind the film, insert it in (the same or another) camera and shoot a second layer. I like the repetition of subjects, form, structures. Good subjects to use are plants and flowers, I shoot one film with fruit and vegetables (be careful in supermarkets, sometimes they are unfriendleye there!) or one layer with my beloved dog.

    Independence Square, Kiev, Ukraine

    Situated at the northern end of Khreschatyk, Kiev’s Independence Square received global media attention in 2004 as the focal point of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution. Orange-clad demonstrators gathered in the Independence Square in Kiev during November, 2004. On some days, the number of protesters in the center of Kiev reached hundreds of thousands (one million by some estimates). Today, things have calmed down a little and the tented city that sprung up overnight has long gone. Independence Square, however, is still the city’s most popular spot for meetings, late night drinking and people watching.

    Santa Barbara

    If you want to take a break from the smoggy, bustling city, Santa Barbara is where you need to be. It's no Hawaii, but it's a nice and atmospheric change from your usual life. Whatever you want to do, it's in your reach. Whether it be camping, surfing, shopping, wine tasting, or just plain roaming, it's all here. Just don't try to do everything in one day. I tried, its impossible.

    Fountain Square, Indianapolis, Indiana

    Lying just east of downtown Indianapolis lies Fountain Square. Fountain Square is a historic district in the city that has tons of lomo moments just waiting to be captured. All the building are exactly as they were years ago and there is also an original Duckpin Bowling alley from the twenties. If you are looking for a nice place to eat, this is it. There are several diners and restaurants to choose from and they all have their own special appeal.

  • Boston

    written by ipdegirl on 2008-09-05 #places

    If you want a truly lo-fi, analogue, old-fashioned vacation take a trip to a little seaside town about 45 minutes northeast of Boston, MA called Nahant--which means 'almost an island'. It truly lives up to it's name as it's connected to the 'mainland' by a causeway that was built-up to accommodate a road. This lovely 1.2 square mile town is worlds away from the hustle-and-bustle of the big city of Boston that is visible just across the Bay on a clear day.

    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.

    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.

    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.
