Once a year, during two weeks, all the city looks like an open air stage for jazz musicians!
Every year, from 12 to 18th of July, Vitoria turns into a jazz city. Lots of classic and moder jazz bands come for all over the world to take part in this 33 years old festival. The calm city changes completely, and people dance on the streets. Many bars and terraces are improvised stages of the musicians. This year the opening concert was played by Jazzanova, a german collective of jazz producers and DJ’s. This was the first time in Spain playing live and it was for free. Their smooth music made us dance and drink a lot that night. This year’s poster was made in collaboration with famous TV showman Andreu Buenafuente and designer and San fermine’s kukuxumusu designs Mikel Urmeneta. You can check the poster here (http://www.jazzvitoria.com/cartel.html).
After the Jazzanova concert we went to my favorite pub, the Dublin. There I met the musicians and got some CDs signed. One of my friends wanted them to write “To Belén with love”. Maybe they didn’t understand me or maybe they were also drunk but they signed also the LP with the same sentence.
The best thing of this festival is that most part of the concerts are for free. And you can see concerts in every square in the city. It takes less than 5 minutes to go form one stage to another. And it’s not overcrowded. You can see the concerts standing 5 meters away from the stage. The main spots are Café Dublin, Monterhermoso and NH Hotel. If you want to play (a lot of money) then you have to go to the Mendizorrotza sports center where the most famous and classic musicians play but it’s more like a social event than music. I prefer staying on the street and having fun while I drink a beer.
My brother had a photo exhibition last year at the North Sea Jazz Festival and got two tickets. So just like the old days with our father, we went to the Ahoy Rotterdam for an evening of jazz and other music. I was armed with an analogue SLR camera, telephoto lens, and sensitive film!
INmusic Festival is my favorite music festival in the world. But as it turned out, lots of other people have discovered it, too. They said 75,000 people attended the festival this year, which was like the number of attendees for the two previous years combined.

There is a weekend in New York where the city streets look like an alternate universe, full of fantastic characters and people who seem to have walked out of a comic book or a movie. This weekend is the NY Comic Con weekend and people from everywhere come to one of the biggest comic convention to be part of one of the biggest Cosplay competitions.

It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.

Two years ago I swore to myself, I'll be coming back soon!" This October my chance finally came and I flew for the second time to New York City to visit my dear colleagues in the Lomography Gallery Store New York. What I didn’t see coming, though, is the opportunity to test a new secret film during my trip.
