    Put a Bird on it!

    This may be common sense but have you done it yet? Yes, it may seem silly, but when was the last time you were up-close and personal to more than 60 birds at one time?

    Explore Little Tibet in Kathmandu, Nepal

    From dawn 'til dusk, hundreds of monks as well as Nepalese and Tibetans of every age walk around a 40m high stupa called Boudha or Bodhnath. They pray their mantra by murmuring and twirling the prayer wheels over and over, seeking for accumulated wisdom and merit (good karma) as well as purified negativity (bad karma).

    Zenit KM: Feathered Friends

    Their movement is as hard to predict as the weather. One minute they're on a standstill, the next they horde the sky with their brisk wings. This is precisely why people need binoculars and camouflage suits just to trace the track of birds. Similarly for photographers, these creatures present a friendly challenge. To capture the perfect stance, on land as in mid-air, is a reward.

    Wapping Woods

    Wapping was originally a Saxon settlement. This area was known as a marshland until the 16th century when it was drained. It then became a rich meadow and garden ground until it was acquired for the London Docks. By 1969, the docks at Wapping were empty. Trees were planted and it was optimistically called Wapping Woods. However, the trees could not survive and the result is the small park we have today.

    Tuileries Garden

    One of the best things Paris can offer. Oh, those gardens! I keep on coming back. The pure beauty of Paris. Place de la Concorde, Tuileries Garden and then the Pyramids of Louvre - nothing can beat this experience! Created by Catherine de Medicis as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was first opened to the public in 1667, and became a public park after the French Revolution.

    Have you ever heard birds singing? I bet some of you have. Here, I will show you guys a singing corner for birds located at Ang Mo Kio Town Garden West. It is a popular place among bird lovers but not for lomographers like us. So I hope more lomographers will press their shutter buttons there and share this location here.

    Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, Cape Town

    Kirstenbosch - the biggest open-air botanical garden of all. I fell in love with this garden when I first came here back in 2004. So, when I arrived to Cape Town this year, I immediately wanted to go back. Although a few obstacles (in the shape of a vineyard visit and so on) almost prevented me from doing that, there I was, still back at Kirstenbosch!

    Bitty Birdies in Books!

    Full bodied Blue Jays, or just their heads. Drawings of birds in silhouette form, in ballpoint pen, or with layer upon layer of mixed media, are what follows. A lot of artists are work with old books, for instance by hollowing them out to make 3D creations. The following American artist shows us that birds laid out on graphs appeal to our senses.

    Shooting Sport Center Bockenberg

    We all like to shoot like crazy, with our cameras around our neck and in our bags: shoot, shoot, shoot and don't think! But did you ever try to shoot with a gun, and not with a camera?? I always asked myself why we're using the same verb "to shoot" for photography and when using guns or weapons.... Well, once I changed the weapon and practiced some "shooting sport" with a rifle, but didn't forget my camera to show you how it was! :)

    Twosday Tuesday: Birds in Flight Up Close

    Here at Lomography, we always like looking at the creative and random photos submitted by our community members in our downtime. And, amusingly, we find that there are a lot of snapshots that bear a striking resemblance to one another – be it in the way they were composed or in idea – even though they were taken in different parts of the globe!
