In the alps - if you want to get from one valley to another - you have to drive through a tunnel. But if you want to have some nice and lovely pics on your rolls after crossing the mountains, enjoy a ride over a pass - for example the Flüelapass in Davos.
The Flüelapass is the connection from Davos to the world famous valley called “Engadin” (yes, the bling-bling-champagne-fur-caviare-and-billionaire-village St. Moritz is located there as well…). During wintertime the pass is closed because of the danger of avalanches. But during the “months without snow” the pass is very popular especially for motorcycles and tourists with motorhomes who do the route with the maximum of 25km/h…. At the weekends it’s almost like living next to a highway, so that’s why I prefer to go there during the week after work when the traffic isn’t heavy. Sometimes I’m a lazy ass and that’s why I take my car to get to the pass. The scenery is very impressive and it looks like a stone desert but for me it’s fantastic to be there, enjoying the silence and the landscape and breathe fresh air. Last autumn, me and my girlfriend (Lady Holga from HongKong) were there a few times, parked the car, took a short walk away from the street and then klick-klacked. This year, I’ve promised my second – and new – girlfriend, Miss Lomo from Russia, to take her there as well.
So it’s very recommendable – if you are one of these guys with a motorhome enjoying your holidays in Switzerland – to stop at a parking place and take your camera for some lovely pictures of the alps. And there are a lot of possibilities in Switzerland to do this. We’ve got no sea or beach but he have the impressive piles of stones, call “the Alps”.
If you are in search of a lesser known European city full of nice examples of art and architecture, I would recommend that you visit Palermo, the capital of the region of Sicily in the South of Italy.

Although already equipped with a degree in Photography, Justin Quinnell got into pinhole photography a little over a decade ago, when he became the Head of Photography while teaching in a college in Bristol, United Kingdom, a time when "one person would have a fully manual Zenith B beside another with a fully automatic camera. " We've had interviews with Justin in the Magazine through the years, and one thing hasn't changed: his enthusiasm for pinhole photography.

I’d only heard rumors of the Magic Tree. I had no idea if they were true and, honestly, I’m still half disbelieving of it despite the story I’m about to tell you. If you have faith in what I say, I’m grateful. If you don’t, I bear no ill will towards you. But either way, please shout out in the comments what secrets or sophistries you think I found through its twisting branches.
I went to Shinjuku Park in order to celebrate spring and enjoy the Japanese tradition of "hanami," which means the "contemplation of cherry blossoms." I tried to capture the beauty of cherry trees with my Lubitel 166B loaded with an expired roll of Agfa Portrait 160 film. I obtained a sepia effect on my photos, and I felt as if I just traveled through old Japan.
