  • 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.

    Everyday market full of colors. Find the usual food offers, fresh fruit and vegetables, fabrics and flowers.
  • Bridgeport

    Bridgeport
    Bridgeport, Connecticut may well be the street photographer's dream. It's a poor city; "hardscrabble" is a term often used to describe it; along with "blue-color", "down-on-its-heels", "seedy", and "shaky". Let's face it, it's not dolled up nor is it sanitized - it's really ugly and it's real. It's a perfect laboratory for the fan of grit and those who search for the sublime amidst the mundane. But even a place as seemingly hopeless as Bridgeport is subject to gentrification and revitalization. Enterprise zones, development projects, eminent domain abuse - all are rapidly working their protean magic across the cityscape. Many of my favorite places for shooting have already mutated and changed; the television graveyard, the old trucks that dotted the vacant lots - all are gone. Former factories are turning into offices and loft condominiums, so you got to get there soon. Owners of blighted lots and abandoned warehouses are suddenly taking an interest in their property, chasing off itinerant photographers and locking the gates behind. You can still catch some unusual graffiti - at least if it's on public property.
  • 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.

  • Shuang-chun beach

    Shuang-chun beach
    Shuang-chun beach is located in the Jiayi County. I often go there with my schoolmates to swim. This is a beach that very few people know. Because this beach has maintained its very primitive life style there is hardly any pollution.
  • Cactus Club Café

    Cactus Club Café
    It's one of our favourite places to dine, mainly because of the design and décor, you'll wish your dining room at home was like this. A bank of TV screens behind the bar keeps the sports fans happy. The restaurant seating is mostly booths that seat 4, with cool dim lighting, very snug and cozy. The menu is the usual west coast fusion, I can only recommend the Steaks, and these are always good. Other items include Ahi Tuna, Endamame, and Fajitas. For drinks, Margaritas are popular, in many flavors.
  • 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.
  • Cours Saleya

    Cours Saleya
    When you are once in Nice, you have to visit the Cours Saleya. It lies parallel to the Promenade des Anglais which streches by the sea. Go there in the morning and have your breakfast in one of the multiple cafés. Sit down and have a cup of lovely latte and some french croissants and just look at people and enjoy the first warming sun.
  • Get Dressed and Get Out There!

    Get Dressed and Get Out There!
    Harajuku is arguably the most lomographic place in the whole Tokyo. I can't remember which but on either day you're bound to find one of these AMAZING kids out there all decked and parading around. It's X-Japan or Tokyo XPRO'ed.
  • Colosseum

    Colosseum
    If you are in Rome, Italy as a tourist, you shouldn't definitely miss visiting this enormous architectural monument built about 1920 years ago by the Emperor Vespasian. He started building it between 70 and 76 AD, but it was completed by his son Titus in 80 AD. The Colosseum was dedicated to the year of Vespasian's death by him. The opening celebrations lasted for 100 days presenting many games.
  • Alentejo

    Alentejo
    Alentejo is a region in the south of Portugal. It is divided in "alto Alentejo" and "baixo Alentejo", but their similarity is striking. I think this location should be posted in the ultimate LomoLocations due to its unique features.
  • Villa 14th

    Villa 14th
    Welcome to the most exciting apartment in Helsinki Villa 14th - two floor wooden house with big balcony with view to the water. Authentic interior of old furniture, wallpapers and smell from the 1920's, 1960's and some probably - still from the 19th century.
  • Semenyih Dam

    Semenyih Dam
    Do you love fishing? Actually fishing was not my real hobby. My boss is the one who knows fishing very well and often takes me to fish. Semenyih is a small town located in Selangor, Malaysia. It shares its name with Semenyih River, which is the main river passing near the town.
  • 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.
  • Chinatown

    Chinatown
    Red&gold Chinese urban island in Italy. A must see. Go any day, anytime. Don't miss the supermarket! Ok fellow lomographers, this is my choice for lomohunting area. If you need a break from the harmonious and perfect and measured and all-in-its-place renaissance beauty, you need to come over here.
  • Vancouver

    Vancouver
    Vancouver was my first trip alone, and the trip that I'll never ever forget. I spent one month there studying and sight-seeing. If you think of traveling to study English, definitely you have to go to Vancouver, it's a great place to study. Besides that, it's a great city for people who want to have everything around them.
  • 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.

    De Galdenwaard Stadium

  • Dour Festival

    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...).
