The first purpose-built UK university campus in a foreign country. The University of Nottingham, Malaysia Campus.
The 101-acre (0.41 km2) campus is not only meant for education. For me, it’s an art at the same time. There are several structures which is attractive enough to conquer your films. (well, at least they killed many of my films.) The huge man made lake with a pedestrian bridge crossing over it is the most romantic place in the whole campus.
Not to forget also the administration building topped with an elegant clock tower. And faculty buildings in red, yellow, green, blue and purple are as lovely too. Well well, you got to reserve some films for the ducks around the lake too. There are 18 of it. (no, I did not count the ducks but the security officer said so.) The combination formed a perfect piece of art.
My favourite spot for taking lomographs? Of course the lake during evening. Sunset + water = perfect couple, aren’t they? Pay a visit to the university during its open day. and don’t forget to bring your lomo cameras along!
Steeped in rich and unique culture and history, the country of Peru is home to many tourist draws, both natural and built by men of ancient civilizations. Among these is the Colca Valley and Canyon, one of world's deepest canyons which boasts of a breathtaking view.
This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.
This article is the first one that I want to dedicate to the Expo 2015. A month ago, my city Como hosted a night spectacular preceding the opening of the Universal Exposition in Milan. With my Praktica and color film, I documented this joyful, artistic event.

Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
