You know that we love us some airports. From terminal design and ticket counters to restaurants and lounges—we’re all about it. That’s why we’ve been wasting a few minutes of our day checking out some awesome aerial airport photographs from Jeffrey Milstein.
The photographer’s series Flying illustrates the twists, turns, and everything else from high above the airport. These photographs are taken just high enough above the ground to get a great view of the scene, but some of the little details are just out of sight—no matter how hard we look for the baggage handlers down on the ground.
New cute camera alert! Yesterday in New York, Lomographypurveyor of vintage film cameras and creator of new, plastic onesunveiled a secret product. It's secret no longer, and the project they kept under wraps is the Lomo Fisheye Baby 110, a miniature version of their popular Fisheye camera, just pocket- and travel-sized.
We're big fans of Lomography here at Jaunted, and as frequent users of three of their cameras (the LC-A+, La Sardina and Diana Mini), we can vouch for their awesomeness when it comes to shaking up your usual travel photography routine. Leave the DSLR behind for a moment, bring a backup roll of real film and walk down some alleysyou'll quickly understand our love of good ol' analog.
In fact, it's our few years of pocketing our Diana Mini (a tiny version of their regular Diana camera) that makes us want to talk about the Fisheye Baby, because we think the small snappers are really the future of Lomography, now that everyone can pocket their smartphone cameras.

Most avid travelers are inseparable from their cameras, always on the lookout for different ways to capture the essence of a place. For a while, tilt-shift photography provided a unique perspective, "miniaturizing" everything from Red Square to the Statue of Liberty in countless vacation photos, but an old technique has recently been revived by a few talented photographers who turn off their flashes and use a slow shutter speed to convey the light, depth, and motion of night scenes.
Losing a memory card at the end of the trip can be tragic. But what if you plan to leave it behind on purpose? The Photochaining project encourages photographers to willingly leave behind cheap cards for others to find and add to. It's like Where's George, but for pictures!
Currently there are 16 memory cards out there, some with people names (Ben, Lola) and others with themes (Gimme, Love, Landscape). Most of them have only been found once in places from Madrid (where a card with the above photo was from) to San Francisco. As much as we like to hang onto our cards, this could work as long as people remember to let their findings go. Yours could be next!
