Frankly speaking, Kostroma is a surprising city! Here I finished my university and met true friends. There are a lot of small restaurants. Now I live in another city but from time to time I like to visit my favourite city!
The ancient city Kostroma is one of the most beautiful cities in the central part of Russia. It will celebrate its next anniversary in 2012, 860 years since it’s foundation! City center has radial and semiring planning. The streets seem like it has beams which then gather on the main square called “skovorodka” or “frying pan” in English.It’s real name is Susanin Square. Kostroma is famous for its churches. Especially well-known is Ipatiev Monastery. It is situated in the picturesque bank or the Kostroma River. “Skovorodka” draws not only groups of tourists but local youth too. There are a lot of places where you can eat, drink, dance, relax and so on. That’s why I like visiting this marvelous city.
The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
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. My boyfriend and I usually go hiking together so we decided to spend our long weekend holiday (three days/two nights) at Mount Papandayan.

There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
