  • Fuerzas Unidas

    Fuerzas Unidas
    On mission trips, I and 9 other youth built two houses in two weeks. These houses are located in Fuerzas Unidas, Honduras. The most beautiful place on Earth. It is a poor, poor country, and a poor, poor area, but you can see the entire city of Teguz from the top of Fuerzas Undias. A view that Americans would pay 2 million dollars for. The people are the most blessed people I've ever met. They have no money, but they have love, love for each other, and love for the LORD.
  • Alcatraz prison

    Alcatraz prison
    Alcatraz is a small island across from the city of San Francisco. It used to be a place for the criminals who had committed a very serious crime, such as Al Capone. Now this place has become a tourist spot. It is very cold there and it's really even not far from the city, but this place makes you feel a bit creepy and lonely at the same time. This place is pretty old but they are doing a very great job to preserve a lot of old buildings and old facilities. It's like a museum where you can walk around and explore on your own. The museum provides the tourists with all the information one could need and also with information assistant if necessary. For example, the assistant narrates about this place and also guides you around where to go. There is a very well done graphic map that keeps you from getting lost. Is it a fun place to go? No, I think this place would be more educational and adventurous. When I got out of this place I felt that, I will never do anything wrong and end up in the prison like
  • Bike

    Bike
    My favourite transport vehicle is my bicycle. It's so easy to go out with it, to the city or to the countryside. It costs nothing, only a little bit physical energy and it's also good for your health to do a little bit exercise.
  • Foz Do Iguacu

    Foz Do Iguacu
    The town of Iguacu borders Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay, not to difficult to find. This tourist Mecca boast the Foz Do Iguacu, and for good reasons. The largest waterfall in the world rests in this national park. The park has an Argentinian and a Brazilian side that are equally gorgeous. One can spend days viewing the falls from the walkways and bridges or one can take a helicopter tour or a boat tour. All of which are awesome.

  • 2nd Beach Pool

    2nd Beach Pool
    Who doesn't love those sunny summer days? Or enjoy going to an outdoor heated pool? In Vancouver we have 2 favourites, 2nd Beach Pool in Stanley Park (pictured here) and Kitsilano Pool which is great for the more serious lane-swimmers. 2nd Beach Pool has 2 small slides and it's right on the edge of the ocean, the scenery is amazing. Bikes and roller-blades whiz by on the seawall, floatplanes in the sky, forest to the rear with raccoons, geese, swans, eagles and more.

  • Islands Borromeo

    Islands Borromeo
    On the South part of Lake Maggiore, there are three jewels called Borromées Islands: Isola Bella, Isola Superiore and Isola Madre. Lake Maggiore is the second largest of Italian lakes (65 km long, 2-4.5 km wide and 370 m deep in its maximum depth) but may rank first in beauty. It is an internationally famous resort of Europe, with its picturesque and spectacular landscape, mild climate and luxuriant vegetation. The climate favors a beautiful botanic garden on the lake shore, with exotic and rare plants including even those from the subtropical zone. The lake has many islands and some of them are famous for their lovely parks and pretty villas.
  • Harajuku

    Harajuku
    Not for the faint-hearted, Harajuku lies between Shibuya and Yoyogi in the japanese metropolis, Tokyo. On any day of the week you will find the small area full of people either shopping, eating or just hanging around looking painfully cool. Packed with expensive and exclusive boutiques as well as more affordable shops this is the place to come if you want to be "seen".

  • Dataran Merdeka

    Dataran Merdeka
    My first LomoOuting started here, the Dataran Merdeka. It is located in Kuala Lumpur, the largest city of Malaysia. "Dataran" means "square". Meanwhile "Merdeka" is the most powerful word for every country, which means "independence".
  • Tampico

    Tampico
    Tampico - it`s the strangest city I've ever visited. I was there on a 4 day business trip, so I didn't really have time to lomograph the city... It was an amazing mixture of decay and modernity: abandoned buildings everywhere, side by side with shiny furbished buildings. I made a mental map of the city, while walking around it. On the last day, I escaped from work at the dinnertime and racing against the time I shot 2 rolls of the city. The map is still in my mind, waiting for the moment until I`m back in Tampico.

    The Parc des Bastions
    The park I prefer in my hometown Geneva is, doubtless, the Parc des Bastions. Located in the heart of the city, it is our genevan Central Park. In the park, you will find the University, the famous Mur des Réformateurs and the very trendy Café des Bastions. Students, nature-lovers, big families, old couples and young lovers love it.

  • Chiufen Town

    Chiufen Town
    Chiufen Town is a small and beautiful town, located on a mountainside overlooking the Pacific Ocean and is one of Taiwan's cultural treasures. A visit there offers a chance to escape from the city and to imagine what life was like many years ago. You can feel the old atmosphere here. The old brick buildings offer a charming, relaxed view. The narrow, stone alleyways and steep stairways suggest an old-fashioned way of living. The whole place has a colorful and romantic air about it.
