    U.S. Shell
    There is a sea shell store in Los Fresnos, TX. Outside the store is a HUGE undersea reef sculpture. Every time I go back to shoot more pictures, I discover something new. Just for going inside the store, you get a free seashell necklace. They sell every kind of shell imaginable including live hermit crabs. They also serve ice cream at the snack bar!
  • Día de Muertos

    Día de Muertos
    Tepotzotlán is a place, a little colonial town, near México City… but most important is this day. November 1 & 2, Día de Muertos, Day of the Dead; the day when people that has left us in this side of the road visits us to have a drink at our table. In fact, you can take part of the festivity at almost any place at México. One of the must important traditions on this day is the offering; it acquires different characteristics at different locations. At Tepotzotlán, some of the youngsters of the town organize a macro offering with lots of skeletons and skulls in every size and material (sugar, paper and clay).
  • Alchichica

    Alchichica
    Every time I go to Veracruz from Mexico City I try to take photographs of the desert from the bus, because I really like the moving landscape, and being in the middle of somewhere. Mexican desert is the best, magical, with lagoons, unknown archeological sites, lizards, UFO`s (some people say, and I would like to lomo-prove it), and much more stories and characters travelling or living around. Lots of things to do, places to stop for a few minutes to grab a bite, or simply to buy things from people waiting by the road bumps. It is nice, your vision gets lost, your mind wonders, and the finger keep pressing the shutter.
  • Galeriiizu

    Galeriiizu
    I think most of the Lomographers love art & design, so do I. Galeriiizu is a very famous art gallery that brings in much influence on the art & design culture to Malaysia. It is wholly owned by Mr. Izuldin Hani (aka Izu), a very influential artist in Malaysia. Due to the passion on art, Izu started to contribute all his time by starting a studio in Bukit Antarabangsa. In this studio, he started to hold art exhibitions that brought his name further to the art & design society. After around moving to few places and he finally settled at the UOA centre. Throughout the whole journey, Izu has launched a lot of exhibitions to acknowledge great artists from around Malaysia. It's a must visit places for art & culture's lover!

    Not far away from my house, on Tchaikovskogo street near Fotanka river, just accross the bridge from Summer garden, is a hidden yard where a small academy of arts for children is based, everything is covered with mosaics there. Everything! Children`s playground, house walls, benches, etc....
  • 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.
  • Madeira

    Madeira
    Madeira is a great place to go. An amazing volcanic landscape with deep valleys, ravines and miles of footpaths, which makes a right place to go if you are a nature lover. There are some places that you can't miss; "Mercado dos Lavradores" in Funchal is one of them.
  • Emerald hills

    Emerald hills
    Leaving Hong Kong, we managed to get some snacks for the trip and decided to get on the road too early rather than too late so we hopped on the tube. Took the KCR out to the last stop then followed the masses through immigration and customs and found ourselves spewed out in Shenzhen, China!!
  • De Galdenwaard Stadium

    De Galdenwaard Stadium
    De Galgenwaard is the stadium of FC Utrecht. It's a beautiful stadion and the players are also great on film ;).
  • Viaduct of Millau

    Viaduct of Millau
    The Viaduct of Millau on the A75 highway (from Montpellier to Clermont Ferrand) is one of the latest important architectural achievements in France. It's just above the valley of the river Tarn, near of Millau (department of Aveyron) and is 245 meters high in the middle.
  • Disneyland

    Disneyland
    Disneyland is the place where dreams come true. I live only about 20 minutes away from Disneyland and Disney California Adventures. Though I myself have only been there 5 times, I am sick of annoying little kids crying to their parents and the long lines for the rides, but still not sick of taking pictures. You can see everything when you are there; from a happy family from Germany to a handicap Christian group from Iowa.
  • Mountains

    Mountains
    MOUNTAINS. This goes hand in hand with forests, I love to travel to mountains whenever & wherever I can. Always photogenic and awe-inspiring summer or winter gotta have 'em near me. Playing and sliding on snow. Hiking, planning trips and looking at them in books and on maps, going to ranges I have only seen in print. Basking in their glow (sometimes getting punished by their elements) getting into the silence of the backcountry on a cold winter morning. I live in a city nestled by them & would go crazy if I wasn't. Not to mention: my job involves being in the mountains nonstop (I shoot snowboarding professionally) in the winter time. I need them!!!
  • Plaza de las Vizcainas & Callejón de San Ignacio

    Plaza de las Vizcainas & Callejón de San Ignacio
    It's just an Alley, in an old neighborhood (Vizcainas) in the historical downtown of Mexico City. It's not a touristy spot, 'cause the place it's on a decay state. These days some people are trying to bring new life to the place. San Ignacio Alley is an example of that, its walls has turned into a canvas for urban artists and the passage a laboratory for some artists that recycle trash into art.

  • Ski Dubai

    Ski Dubai
    The Emirates are too over the top to be comprehended by a simple mind like me. But one thing I understood perfectly so far: deliver entertainment and sensations no matter of the costs. One perfect example for this is the ski Dubai! As we know, Dubai is in the middle of the desert! Desert equals sun equals heat equals no snow equals question. Answer: the sheikhs just build an amusement dome where there is a ski-world.
  • Abandoned Railroad Tracks

    Abandoned Railroad Tracks
    Traces of the once working mexican railroad, slowly erased by nature. On one side the tracks end abruptly, but on the other the keep going on and on. And not only railroad tracks go on, but lots of strange things like advertisements that warn you about never coming train; rusty metal, rusty clothes and even forgotten rusty christmas trees resting forever on the millions of stones that surround the tracks. It's like being on a forgotten island in the middle of a crowded city.
  • Sunday flea market

    Sunday flea market
    Sunday flea market. This place is just great to walk by or then look for something antique, among the market stalls you'll always find something to buy, needed or not! Try to go there at the morning cause it gets crowded around noon.
  • The Martyr's Shrine

    The Martyr's Shrine
    The Martyr's Shrine is located near Yuanshan on Beian Rd., near the lush mountains and facing the Keelung River. The Shrine was completed in 1969 and its grand architecture covers a large area of ground. Inside the shrine are the numerous plaques of martyrs as well as pictures illustrating the history of the building of our nation, a tribute to the selflessness of these brave people.
  • Liuxi cultural city

    Liuxi cultural city
    I like this place very much. The Taiwanese old movie-like streets are the places, the older generation remembers still very well. It carries the local lifestyle of various decades starting from 30's to the 60's surrounded with houses built following the ancient construction techniques.
