One of the most beautiful cities in the world, and very different from what I expected.
Actually, I expected a lot of New England charm with lots of city filth and stench. But Boston is different: friendly and quiet neighborhoods around the center, a student-tourist Cambridge and an unexpectedly nice and clean downtown. Boston has me hooked. It is much more European-like than other states in the U.S. It also has a wide range of restaurants. Top Italian restaurants can be easily found as they seem to almost be more common than American burger stalls. Nevertheless, the “American feeling” is not lacking. The big malls are simply magical and the skyline is breathtaking. The entire city can be easily explored on foot. If you’re interested on getting a bird’s eye view, you can visit the observation deck of the Prudential Tower. Admission is not cheap, but the view is really amazing and worth every dollar. A city tour by “Duck Tour” is also very cool: ride on amphibious vehicles across the city, first on the road and then on water.
For super nice beach courses, Cape Cod is worth a visit, it is accessible by car in 1-2 hours. Everything is pretty expensive there, but the wide sandy beach is beautiful. If you are adventurous, take a car trip up the coast to the north. This is a very pretty fishing village and here, you can eat all the delicious lobsters you want! :-P
From February to July, I experienced one the happiest times of my life: I lived in China. I lived in Suzhou, Jiangsu, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. So here's some advice directly from me to you—what to do in Suzhou?
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."

What makes travel a great experience is the newness of things. The environment, people and culture tend to be different from customs back home. Coming from the Philippines, I found a lot of novel things in the United Kingdom, especially in the city of London.
The city of Santiago stands beautifully in Chile's central valley and along the Andes mountains. As one of the most developed cities in South America, not only does it possess scenic natural attractions, but an incredible urban life as well.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.

Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.
