L'Armano is a big old villa from the 17th century, something like 200 meters away from my apartment in Grugliasco... It's a huge farm, including a 2 storey house and a chapel, surrounded by a big garden.
The house and garden are now abandoned and, unfortunately, left in ruins when it could be a nice place to restructure or at least to keep clean for people to visit it… Anyway, who wants can visit it (squatters included!), entering from the opened windows or holes in the wall, and if you like to shoot at ruins and architecture, it’s a real goldmine for any lomographer! Just be careful with the needles, it’s full of them down there!!
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.
