“Somewhere in La Mancha…” …there’s a village where the little old ladies dance all night long.
In a part of Spain where everything is flat, sits a tiny village on a small hill overlooking miles of golden fields, hidden archaeological ruins and endlessly spinning tumbleweed.
It’s a small place of about fifty or sixty beautiful white houses and very few permanent residents. The population rockets however whenever there’s a party and here there’s always a reason to celebrate. I first visited Villar de Cantos about five years ago. The whole village were having a party and I was invited. The party was to celebrate the introduction of electricity!
The food is Spain is very good, in the Province of Cuenca it’s even better and in Villar de Cantos it’s incredible! In whichever party you find yourself here, there will always be at least one gigantic paella pan on the go and usually another filled with rabbit stew.
Everyone takes part, from the grandparents to the grandchildren. But it’s the more mature ladies that really shine. They know all the dances and once they start…there’s no stopping them…ever.

My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.
Shanghai in the 1920s and '30s was a city that intrigued British, American, French and Chinese cosmopolitans with its bustling streets and dens of sumptuous iniquity. This summer, Dances of Vice brings strains of jazz mingled with Hollywood-inspired music and Chinese folk melodies on the night of the Downtown Association in New York City.
Of course, Italy makes a great destination for taking photos. But what if there was a place where you could find stunning motifs, impressive colors, and the ideal mixture of nature and arts all at once? What if I told you that there is a place like that: a garden full of art in the middle of nowhere?
A self-portrait is a piece of a long narrative. It is a parcel of where you have been and what is precious to you. It is a silent version of a hello or an impactful sentence about the kind of photographer you are. Make your next statement count with a little help from your Lomography friends.
There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java.
