    Dour Festival
    Hello dear lomographers! My name is Kim and I come from Belgium. One of the smallest countries in Europe! Nevertheless we have lots of things to offer the inhabitants as well as the ones who decide to come by our wonderful country. Festivals are a part of the amazing entertainment we have. The biggest one is the Werchter festival in the Flammish part of Belgium, another one and much smaller is the Rhâââ Lovely festival. An entirely free Live Nations festival with an amazing program for those who are fond of alternative rock music (Explosion in the Sky, Migala, Matt Elliott performed there...).

  • 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

    My lovely hometown, Kampung Sauk is a small village located in Kuala Kangsar, the state of Perak Darul Ridzuan. "Kampung" means village in Malaysian.

  • Blue Lagoon

    Blue Lagoon
    Iceland surely is a strange place. One of the most astonishing sites is the blue lagoon. Well. It's a hot thermal source. But it's more than that. It lay in the middle of a field of volcanic stones, a rough moon-like field. The Bath is close to the seaside, that's why there are Sea-Minerals in the water and on you. It's a habit to put a white mineral-paste on you skin.
  • 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".

    Russian church
    The Russian community in Nice has always been important since the second half of XIXth century. Nice began its career as a touristy city and the English and Russian people were the first to be attracted by the "angel bay" ("baie des anges") of Nice.

  • 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.
  • 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.
