  • Dragons Backbone Rice Terraces (Longji)

    Dragons Backbone Rice Terraces (Longji)
    Because I can’t really find my Lonely Planet of China I have to recall how I have traveled, taking my diary and doing the most awkward thing: remembering! When I was in Guilin I ended up in a hostel and kind of got attached to a Frenchman. The fellow had contact to a Chinese tourist-lady and asked me, if I wanted to come on a trip to some legendary rice terraces.
  • Stone Alphabet (Ashtarak)

    Stone Alphabet (Ashtarak)
    One sometimes gets the feeling, that there are no secrets anymore and no insider-information to be shared. The Internet left us with no doubts and lack of knowledge. But still there are some lomo-locations, that are truly mysterious and barely to be found otherwise. There is a spot in Armenia, which I passed by on a recent trip. It is situated around a city called Astarak, directly aside to the highway leading to the capital Yerevan.
  • Metro Tokyo/ Osaka

    Metro Tokyo/ Osaka
    Tokyo is a city of roughly 20 million inhabitants with all the suburbs included. Yet the city is not dying of car-pollution and noise-explosion, hence 80 percent of all traffic is done by public transport, which is generally breaking down to buses, JR (some sort of city train) and metro.
  • Osaka-jo

    Osaka-jo
    The castle of Osaka is the major attraction of the town, and it surely is worth a visit. From the inside and the outside it represents the great history and future of this magic place called Japan. The Castle grounds covers 60.000 square meters, maybe the largest park in town. It dates back until 1583 when the famous Conqueror Toyotomi Hideyoshi started building it, but was many times looted and rebuilt.
  • Labyrinthus (Merville)

    Labyrinthus (Merville)
    Last summer I got lost: officially. And it was the whole idea behind it. There is a massive labyrinth in the french alsace area, to find it is easy to find back is much harder. So we took our sun-umbrella, because you never really know, when you will find the next source of water, while you are lost. It is consisting of high grown huge corn and it is so big that you need hours to find your way through.
  • Pole Dancing in London

    Pole Dancing in London
    Quite amazing, sliding up and down a post is a major fitness trend in Australia, UK and the US. Despite the fact, that the girls doing it with clothes on and not in a night club, the whole thing is still very sexy. But that is the idea: Bringing fitness and fun together.
  • Rollei Retro (35mm, 400 iso) user-review

    Rollei Retro (35mm, 400 iso) user-review
    Black-spirit: In my opinion the Rollei 400 ISO is very much like that of the Ilford XP2, which I love very much!

  • Kosovo Markets

    Kosovo Markets
    Kosovo is calm at the moment, but you never know. The southern part of Serbia is always on the threshold of trouble. Because 90 percent of all kosovars in Albania naturally seek for independence, but this is a long way to go. Meanwhile Kosovo is a shopping paradise for soldiers, politicians and whoever sets his foot on a friendly market. They offer great skullcaps, Adidas-shoes for a handful of dollars and they have a huge industry of barber-shops! And they barb as hell, every hairsection you could imagine with the sharpest knives around and with the most exciting feeling, that life comes and life goes...
  • Eternal Flame

    Eternal Flame
    The biggest attraction on the Independence Square of Toshkent is in my view the eternal flame at just opposite to the Turkistan-palace at the right corner of the square. I don't really know about the west, but eternal flames had been a big hit and a necessity in most of the Eastern-European capitals.
  • Lago di Fiastra

    Lago di Fiastra
    I recently took my vacation in the Marche, which is a neat area in the middle of Italy. Very calm and decently close to the Adriatic Sea and the port of Ancona. It has all the treats of the Italian landscape, having mountains and seaside alike.
  • Yerebatan Saray Cistern

    Yerebatan Saray Cistern
    One of the most amazing things about Istanbul is that it collects so many architectural styles and historic moments. Well, you can say this about Berlin, too, but in Istanbul you go way back. Before the Arabian influence took over it was a merely Christian area and during the Byzantium the architecture was very roman.
  • Shushi (Karabakh)

    Shushi (Karabakh)
    During the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan over Nagorno Karabakh Shushi had a major significance. Geographically it lays in the mountains atop of the capitol Stepanakert and for the longest time of the war it was in the hands of Azeri forces.
  • Olympia Stadium Berlin

    Olympia Stadium Berlin
    The Olympia stadium in Berlin is the most beautiful stadium in the world... in the eyes of all fans of the local football club Hertha BSC. And so is my opinion. It was built for the Olympic Games in 1936 and therefore it was built majestically to serve Hitler's delight in eternal propaganda for the German Reich.
  • Kiev

    Kiev
    Kiev is one of the hero-cities of the Soviet Union. This status was passed only to a very few towns, which had a major significance during the Second World War. And as we know WWII was one of the main topics in school, television and likewise propaganda.
  • Cemetery of Bruce Lee

    Cemetery of Bruce Lee
    I didn't even know, that when legends die, that they have to lay down in a cemetery. That they are nothing but normal Earthly creatures that pass away one day sooner or later. I was recently in Seattle and after a few days I kind of got bored and flipped through the hotel-journal to find other interesting spots in town.
  • Dali Town

    Dali Town
    China is a huge country and with so many differences between the people and the geographics. You have sharp mountains and round mountains, Banantrees and desert and Han-Chinese and Minorities. And there are so many of them. And the perfect spot to feel this diversity is the province Yunnan.
  • Baku

    Baku
    Among the new Islamic countries of the post-Soviet Union, I tend to like Azerbaijan a lot. You get your kebab warm, photo-venders throw LC-A after you and I even saw transvestites after nightfall on the street. That's what I call liberal, baby! I was in Baku for a seminar, so food and drinks were granted for free. Yeah! There is an interesting habit for waiters, though.
  • Walthamstow

    Walthamstow
    When: All year long, even Christmas and New Years Day. I got a scholarship for traveling to the UK and Ireland and had to write a thesis about it. The most surprising part of the journey was a short trip to Walthamstow. I wanted to experience a bit of the album Park-life by Blur. They grew up around the corner in Hackney and so the picture on the album shows two dogs racing.
  • Hamburg Arena

    Hamburg Arena
    If you love football you just have to be in love with the temples of football: the stadiums. Because Germany was having the World Cup they invested plenty of money into the infrastructure and new stadiums. There is little doubt, that these stadiums are the finest on the planet at the moment.
