“Around the World in Analogue” is your bite-size guide to the most amazing travel destinations across the globe, as documented by the members of the Lomography community. Today, Lomographer Michael Schönen (@neneohcs) shares tips on the must-see places in South England.
People who have come to my LomoHome may have noticed that most of the time I share a short subtext for each album, which is a brief and short intro and may carry some details. This album is film three of six, taken on a trip to South England in May 2018. At that time, my wife and me were in Lyme Regis.
We explored - Heligans Garden, an incredible beautiful landscape — in the hands of a friendly community — which is very rich of different plants and variety of artistry.
Then, we traveled to Falmouth (visiting the maritime museum with a Titanic exhibition), Jippie (There was a vinyl record shop with vintage furniture and interior), and Falmouth (It has a nice beach-culture and a cinema, if pop culture is a deep need).
If you'll visit Cornwall, I deeply recommend to visit the Lizard (half island) which is incredibly beautiful. The coastline has a history of stone carving because of its rare serpentine geology.
What made the trip especially interesting was stumbling across two beautiful Lomographers who followed an art class in St Ives. They were filming with an old film camera and intended to develop their films on sight! Guess in what chemistry? Yes, caffenol! We had a chat and they told me that their workshop was led by Robert Schaller, who invented a transportable equipment for developing film, even super 8 on the go, which was so cool.
For many reasons, I plan to return to Southengland and especially to visit Cornwall again. This trip was a pleasurable adventure fueled by curiosity for the beauty of this country. It is spring and the people we met were nice! Wow it´s spring. For my travels, to consider which camera equipment to bring may take some time. The analogue choice for this trip was the China-produced Leica C2, which is a very flexible point and shoot with only a few but useful possibilities to work around the impeccable automatic. I took several different films on the journey, also went shopping for some films. In this album, you see the qualities of a Lomography Color Negative 100 and I can really recommend for it´s wonderful colors….
All photos were taken by Michael Schönen with a Leica C2 and Lomography Color Negative 100. To see more of his photographs, visit his LomoHome.
