Karimunjawa is a newly-discovered untouched virgin paradise said to become the “next Bali”.
Karimunjawa is about wonderful, scenic, white sandy beaches, and shallow turquoise waters that is also non-swimmer friendly.
The best thing about Karimunjawa is its heavenly scenery and wide crystal clear, shallow sea area. As for underwater scenery.
Karimunjawa has a wide coral reefs area for snorkeling but too bad some of them are dying, damaged, and bleaching. Basically the coral reefs here are healthier than in Java, Bali or Lombok, but nothing compares to Bunaken, Weh Island or Eastern Indonesia.
Boasting of beautiful tropical reefs and an enormous well-preserved national park, this new tourist destination is a great experience for both the experienced traveler and newbies.
These images, said to be the first color photographs of Bali, Indonesia, were taken by National Geographic photographer Franklin Price Knott during a journey through Japan, China, the Philippines, Bali, and India back in 1927 at the age of 73.

Fashion becomes something of an artifact if it is laden with details that next generations can replicate. If the original textiles are no longer available, vintage photography becomes the main style guide.

If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

Iceland is a paradise blessed with majestic views at practically every turn. Here, luchiannap recalls a memorable road trip at the Snaefellsnes peninsula, where she and her friends were able to find one such amazing vista.
Every year in the beginning of September, a small Italian town situated a few miles from my city of Como hosts an ancient fair dedicated to the Virgin Mary: the Fair of Our Lady of Rogoredo. This series of images fresh from my darkroom was taken using a roll of HP5+ film loaded inside my wonderful Horizon Perfekt.
This is a tribute to a founding father of photography, the American photographer Paul Strand. In 1955, he released a book about Luzzara, a small town in central Italy, in collaboration with the famous neo-realist screenwriter Cesare Zavattini. To pay homage to this great artist, this summer I personally went to Luzzara to take a series of photos that shows the changes in this little town 60 years after the work of Strand was published.
Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.
