San Diego Harbor

Visit the place anytime you're in San Diego, especially when the sun is shining or is just about to set. You`ll see the beautiful ocean, a bridge, boats/ships/ferries, many different birds, many different trees, fountains, a lot of public art, shops and stands, restaurants, and people. Don't let the tourists frighten you because there are so many different things you'll find to take pictures of. The Coronado Bridge is a tourist attraction but what is so great about San Diego's harbor is that you can find yourself in distinct places if you keep walking in any direction. There's the quaint Seaport Village where you'll find interesting novel shops and overpriced cookies. Just a few blocks away is San Diego's own downtown and the Gaslamp Quarter where you can go clubbing or get piss drunk later in the night, but don't walk too far into downtown because you might find yourself being bummed for a change. If you keep walking westwards along the port you will pass by a nice array of docked boats and yachts. As you walk on the delightful path between rows of trees, you might come upon a huge navy boat or cruise ship. Beyond the ships are the neat Urban Tree sculptures. There are 30 of them placed all along the bay front, waiting to be photographed. And if you're too tired to walk back to where you started, there's always people on taxi-bikes willing to give you ride back if you pay them a decent amount of money. Go lomo.

    If this view looks too sweet to be true, it's because the gable houses, spindly bridges and docked boats are all miniature! Using Horizon Kompakt, one Lomographer turned the make-believe village of Babbacombe into a life-size vista.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

    5 Noteworthy Architectural Details

    A building is a story of collective effort. The people who dreamed it up and polished every surface are anonymous to many, but their work announces a unique identity. For tourists, architecture is a marker of place, like souvenirs with flags and national costumes. For the camera-lugging traveler, a strong visual statement is what matters most.

In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
