    IKEA

Famous for its avant garde, minimalist DIY designs IKEA is also cost efficient as well as environmentally sound. With that aside, it is a very nice place to take some awesome lomographs.

One near Changi Airport and one near Queensway Shopping Centre. You can take a bus, mrt or a taxi to go to either store.
  • Colours of Yellowstone National Park

    Colours of Yellowstone National Park
    Ahh, Yellowstone, one of the tourist capitals of the world. My parents have a cabin nearby and so I have been there numerous times. As it is a tourist hot-zone, I typically try to avoid taking my camera, but I got suckered in one time and happened to have some slide film in there. I snapped a few and realized why people take their cameras and decided that I will always have one with me on future visits.
  • Canadian Vimy Memorial

    Canadian Vimy Memorial
    During the First World War, my region, the Pas-de-Calais was the place of many battles. In Vimy (my city), on April 1917, a great offensive was launched by Canadian Corps, the battle was terrible and many soldiers were killed there, but the Canadian succeeded in taking the ridge of Vimy to the Germans.
  • Congo

    Congo
    The RD du Congo is that huge green spot in the centre of the African continent. It's a country with a sad past. This summer they had elections for the first time in 30 years. Kabila Jr and Bemba were the two main candidates. Finally Kabila made it. I went to Likasi, a small town (200 000 villagers), above Lubumbashi, the second biggest city of Congo (2 million people).
  • Cameron Highland

    Cameron Highland
    One of my favorite vacation spots in Malaysia is Cameron Highland. I like it so much because of the weather. Due to its position which is in the highland, it is always cold and has nice weather. Cameron Highlands have lots of hotel and small hostel for travelers.
  • Cosmovitral and botanical garden

    Cosmovitral and botanical garden
    An amazing art nouveau structure built at the beginning of the XX century at the historical downtown of the Toluca city. Originally it was the "16 of September market". In 1978 the artist Leopoldo Flores and some other local artists began the construction of a massive stained glass window (in fact one of the largest in the world, as far as I know). In the 80's the building was reopened as the Cosmovitral and Botanical Garden.
  • Festos (Crete Island)

    Festos (Crete Island)
    Again back to Crete Island, where the history of Europe starts... This time something very special for you. Festos is an ancient town or building complex as well as the name of the disc, which is very famous in the whole world.
  • Stockholm Public Library

    Stockholm Public Library
    If you ever visit Stockholm, don't miss the Public Library, as Swedish call Stockholms Stadsbibliotek. One of the most modern buildings, but build in 1928! The building suffered lots of modifications, but every time Gunnar Asplund changed the plans, it got simpler. At first it was thought to be a classic-modern building, but it ended up being a functionalist one.
  • Eiscafé Dolomiti

    Eiscafé Dolomiti
    Okay... Everyone says "here you can get the best ice-cream ever", but believe me, here in our region it IS the very best ice-cream you can get! People come from everywhere and queue more than half an hour to get these sweet little ice-balls in so many different tastes. It is summer, the sun is shining, you have had some nice food and what are your plans? Eat ice-cream.
  • Villa Noailles

    Villa Noailles
    In 1924, one of the most daring and influential patrons of the arts, Charles and Marie Laure de Noailles commissioned the architect Robert Mallet Stevens to build the Villa Noailles in Hyères in the South of France.
  • Tanay

    Tanay
    A place that you can hide after the tiring modern life in the city.
  • 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 :).
  • Plaza Dorrego (San Telmo)

    Plaza Dorrego (San Telmo)
    I am currently living in Buenos Aires, Argentina,and I am lucky enough to live in San Telmo, a gorgeous old neighborhood. My favorite place is the antique market on Plaza Dorrego. It takes place on Sundays, and is located on Plaza Dorrego, although the magic starts at the moment you walk down my street, which is called Defensa.
  • Kudirkos Naumiestis

    Kudirkos Naumiestis
    This town is not very popular in Lithuania, and I even could never ever turn my car towards this town, but my girlfriend told me a story about one of the biggest sabotages in Lithuanian history of the 20th century.
  • Warehouse (Harpendem)

    Warehouse (Harpendem)
    There is this amazing place where my friend's band practices. It's in Harpenden (just outside London), just off High field Oval (that's a road name), thing is it's all private property I think, but if you really want to photograph there, contact them, they're nice people. Basically it's a warehouse on the YWAM base.
  • Pope’s Palace

    Pope’s Palace
    In the 15th century, with the arrival of the popes, Avignon became the capital of Christianity, supplanting Rome for nearly a hundred years. To the South of the Cathedral, the Popes built an enormous fortress considered at the time as one of the most beautiful and strongest fortresses in the world.
  • Dali Town

    Dali Town
    China is a huge country and with so many differences between the people and the geographics. You have sharp mountains and round mountains, Banantrees and desert and Han-Chinese and Minorities. And there are so many of them. And the perfect spot to feel this diversity is the province Yunnan.
  • Toronto

    Toronto
    Toronto is an amazing place to visit. There is so much to see. To get your self started, I would recommend taking the open top bus tours.
  • Centre Pompidou – Musée Beaubourg

    Centre Pompidou – Musée Beaubourg
    I like the "Musée Beaubourg'! It's an amazing place located in the 4th district of Paris. There are always great exhibitions of contemporary art (photography, painting...) and it's a real pleasure to wander inside the museum in the spacious rooms: at a certain point you bump into Warhol and the following moment you contemplate a big shot of Andreas Gursky.
  • Sainte Croix Lake

    Sainte Croix Lake
    The lake of Sainte Croix is an artificial reserve, setting in waters in 1973, following the construction of the dam of Sainte Croix on the course of the Verdon. It is located between the departments of the Var and Alpes de Hautes Provence, at feet of the Gorges du Verdon.
