Edirne was the capital of the Ottoman Empire before Istanbul was conquered. A few of the well-known Ottoman sights are thus within Edirne, like the Selimiye Mosque or the Old Mosque.
Our day began at Selimiye, architect Sinan’s masterpiece. It is a sight that competes with Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. After that we visited a few more mosques, like the Lale Mosque, the Mosque with 3 Balconies and the Ulu Mosque, which has the words “Allah”, and “Mohammed” written in huge script on the outer walls. Then we took a walk around the Tunca River and visited the Bayezid II Külliye Health Museum. That building was used as an asylum in the Ottoman days and nowadays; in each room there are different showcases for different treatments from those times, such as melancholy, lunatics, etc.
Of course all that sight seeing got us hungry and we got to taste the most amazing liver we ever had!
And well, we took a lot of photos! Which made it a really fun day!
At the beginning of November, I went to Madrid for the first time. I wanted to bring back home unique memories and photographs of what I was going to discover in the Spanish capital, so I brought the Petzval Lens with me to capture this trip within a beautiful swirling bokeh.
Just as we love the grainy sound of a vinyl record playing our latest jazz favorites, we choose analog photography for its natural imperfections that remind us so wondrously of our own reality. Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.

It's a modern utopia, a one-of-a-kind in the world: Brasília. The capital of marvelous Brazil is the wet dream of every architecture aficionado, the masterpiece of Oscar Niemeyer. This architect created an illusion of better living; thus, Brasília was declared an UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987. This is a homage to lines, curves, and boldness.
Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library. To pay homage to this great artist, I have selected a series of photos that I took in this place last summer. Take a look!
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.
In the days of our grandfathers and great grandfathers, it isn't uncommon for men to perform grand romantic gestures to woo the objects of their affection. In old Philippines, one oft-practiced custom was the harana.
