The Carmen baths, the docks, and the Contemporary Art Centre. When I went to Malaga I visited many places that are hidden in this city but my favourites were these three.
Carmen baths is located in the Eastern District of Malaga and is notable for containing an old resort made up of a central pavilion and bathing area perimeter. It is found to be wild and semi-derelict and has a beach area and a terrace bar. It is an old-fashioned and decadent place, but it’s worth taking a stroll along the beach to the resort and an aperitif as well.
Walking around the 3,000-year-old docks, placed in the Malaga Bay is another activity that should not be missed if you visit a city facing the sea. Look at the lighthouse, the boats and sails, and feel the smell of salt. If after the sea route around you fancy a calming afternoon, then a visit to the Contemporary Art Centre (http://cacmalaga.org/) will not be the best option. It’s located in the heart of the city, between Comandante Benitez Avenue and Germany Street. The CAC Malaga is located in the former Malaga Wholesale Market, a historic building on the left bank of the river Guadalmedina. During my visit an exhibition of Dexter Dalwood was taking place, a retrospective of paintings and collages made by bringing together the work of the last decade and showing his personal view of some of the events and personalities that marked the twentieth century.
So I can only say: enjoy your stay in Malaga and as always, come with a camera in hand!
I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.
Located in the Zhejiang province, Hangzhou is known as one of the most beautiful cities in China. I went there following my aunt’s advice. She studied calligraphy in Hangzhou Arts University (杭州美术大学) and told me, "When I sat by the lake, I just understood Chinese painters. They painted what they see, not less."

Speak of South Korea and, chances are, the bustling capital city Seoul and the charming island of Jeju would be the first destinations to come to mind—and for very good reasons. But while these top tourist draws are definitely worth the visit, the rest of the country is dotted with many more gems often unheard of to outsiders. Here are a few of them.
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 second part 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.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.
The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
