London is one of my favorite cities in the world, albeit that it rains a lot there. Or should I say, ‘used to rain a lot?’ Recent news has connected ongoing climate change in England to a drastic decline of rain, which may have a serious long term impact on the capital’s groundwater supply. Gavin Hammond, who’s unique and gloomy lomo photography we have featured before, has made it his mission to give the ‘rainy London as it used to be’ a moment in the sun. He has come up with a fantastic set of photos that shows many of the famous London spots in the reflection of puddles. It’s not only a great idea, the execution is fantastic, too.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
