  • Holocaust Memorial (Berlin)

    Holocaust Memorial (Berlin)
    A 19.000 square meter huge site covered with 2.711 cement blocks, or also called "stelae". All of the stelae have the same length of 2,38m, same width of 0,95m and vary in the height from 0,2m to 4,8m. Due to the wavy ground the whole site gets a shape of a huge wave. The architect Peter Eisenman produced an uneasy and confusing atmosphere on the site that once located the Reichskanzlei (Reichs Chancellery) of Adolf Hitler during the Third Reich.......
  • Spice Island Grenada

    Spice Island Grenada
    I've only been to Spice Island Grenada once for a holiday, but it made a great location to shoot Lomos with my Frogeye and SuperSampler cameras. It certainly lived up to its reputation for being hot, spicy and tropical, just the perfect place for chillin'. It may have changed a little since I was there as it was hit by a hurricane and pretty much devastated later that year, but the Granadians are resilient people and they have been rebuilding their paradise Island. One place I would thoroughly recommend a visitor to go to is the Chocolate factory - not only do they produce wonderful chocolate, the whole ethos of the place is wonderful, it's very much a community enterprise.
  • Canet Plage (Perpignan)

    Canet Plage (Perpignan)
    Canet Plage is often mild, soft, glorious and quiet. Best time to go is between January through to May.
  • Hoppings Funfair

    Hoppings Funfair
    *When to go*: in July *What to see*: What isn't there to see! Eat hotdogs, hamburgers, chips, toffee apples, pop corn and candy floss to your heart's content and then be thrown around in a wild, spinning, twisting-up-side-down spaceship while tripping the light fantastic and chucking your guts up. Prepare for blast off!

  • Melaten (Cologne)

    Melaten (Cologne)
    Cemeteries make nice Lomographic motives. This is a huge public cemetery in Cologne. Usually cemeteries are places where you don't take a stroll. It's a place to find peace and to come to rest (in both senses of the word). But Melaten is a bit different. It is constructed like a park. There is a lot of green, trees, meadows, bushes and the graves and gravestones adapt somehow into the landscape. What is so special about this cemetery are its magnificent and elaborate gravestones decorated with larger than life angels and other figures - the Death for example.
  • Victoria and Albert Museum (London)

  • Kosovo Markets

    Kosovo Markets
    Kosovo is calm at the moment, but you never know. The southern part of Serbia is always on the threshold of trouble. Because 90 percent of all kosovars in Albania naturally seek for independence, but this is a long way to go. Meanwhile Kosovo is a shopping paradise for soldiers, politicians and whoever sets his foot on a friendly market. They offer great skullcaps, Adidas-shoes for a handful of dollars and they have a huge industry of barber-shops! And they barb as hell, every hairsection you could imagine with the sharpest knives around and with the most exciting feeling, that life comes and life goes...
  • San Diego Harbor

    San Diego Harbor
    Visit the place anytime you're in San Diego, especially when the sun is shining or is just about to set. You`ll see the beautiful ocean, a bridge, boats/ships/ferries, many different birds, many different trees, fountains, a lot of public art, shops and stands, restaurants, and people. Don't let the tourists frighten you because there are so many different things you'll find to take pictures of. The Coronado Bridge is a tourist attraction but what is so great about San Diego's harbor is that you can find yourself in distinct places if you keep walking in any direction. There's the quaint Seaport Village where you'll find interesting novel shops and overpriced cookies. Just a few blocks away is San Diego's own downtown and the Gaslamp Quarter where you can go clubbing or get piss drunk later in the night, but don't walk too far into downtown because you might find yourself being bummed for a change. If you keep walking westwards along the port you will pass by a nice array of docked boats and yachts. As you walk on the delightful path between rows of trees, you might come upon a huge navy boat or cruise ship. Beyond the ships are the neat Urban Tree sculptures. There are 30 of them placed all along the bay front, waiting to be photographed. And if you're too tired to walk back to where you started, there's always people on taxi-bikes willing to give you ride back if you pay them a decent amount of money. Go lomo.
  • Yerebatan Saray Cistern

    Yerebatan Saray Cistern
    One of the most amazing things about Istanbul is that it collects so many architectural styles and historic moments. Well, you can say this about Berlin, too, but in Istanbul you go way back. Before the Arabian influence took over it was a merely Christian area and during the Byzantium the architecture was very roman.
  • Vientiane

    Vientiane
    In such a short time Laos has carved its way into my heart with smiling people, beautiful nature and cheap beer. I arrived in Vientiane after a 12 hour bus ride from Bangkok which dropped me off at 4.30 am at Nong Khai bus station, I sat, waited...finally a tuk tuk driver came and told me the border opens at 6, we went, I sat and waited while the most breathtaking sunset lifted the veil of darkness from the sky...pink and yellow shards fighting for space on a bleak, blue canvas.
  • Taiping Lake Garden

    Taiping Lake Garden
    The Taiping Lake Garden has been operational since 1880. It was built on an old mining land and today plays host to a variety of plants, flowers, trees, birds and a dazzling variety of insects. The old mining pool has become the crown jewel - the lake.
  • Holker Garden Festival

    Holker Garden Festival
    Us Brits like nothing more than a grand day out in a posh person's backyard. One such event is the Holker Garden Festival held in the parkland at Holker Hall, near Flookburgh in south Cumbria, just a stone's throw from Morecambe Bay.

  • Gracia (Barcelona)

    Gracia (Barcelona)
    The area of Gracia in Barcelona is really the one I prefer. Located north of the central "Plaça Catalunya" it's in the same time really central, and different from the rest of the city.
  • Le Wiels Contemporary Art Center

    Le Wiels Contemporary Art Center
    A new and innovative contemporary art center, Le Wiels, has just opened its doors in one of the finest exponents of industrial modernist architecture in Brussels: the former brewery installations of the Wielemans Ceuppens company. The site was built in 1930 by Belgian architect Adrian Blomme and it's defiantly worth a visit.
  • Scilly Isles

    Scilly Isles
    The isles of Scilly are amazing, they make no sense to at all, they are 30 miles (approx.) of the coast of the UK and yet they have tropical gardens on the island of Tresco - outdoor ones and all unlike the indoor Eden project, just a few miles away on the mainland. They pretty much all have sandy beaches.
  • Millefont Lake

    Millefont Lake
    The Lake of Millefont is a beautiful place to take a walk, see nature, relax and take pictures. It's in the pre-alps, about 70 km from the coast of the Cote d'Azur and the city of Nice. You must leave Nice following the river Var, along the N202 road (west side of the city, near the airport). This road is the direct way to the mountains and you can quickly be in mountainous landscape and still see the Mediterranean Sea :).
  • Parliament Hill

    Parliament Hill
    The place I always go back to is called Parliament Hill and is part of Hampstead Heath which is a huge park in North London.
  • Camp in Mountains (New Caledonia)

    Camp in Mountains (New Caledonia)
    TVR is a camp in the mountains of NC. Everything is so clear up there, your thoughts, your beliefs, the water, the air, the people. Everyone and everything knows why they're there. Its lovely. The sun is always positioned in a way where you can always see it. Light shines on everything.
