    Island Life - the Isle of Wight
    Oh Wow! Island Theme - this is just perfect for me, because I LOVE Islands! I live on an island and all the best holidays I've ever had have been on Islands.
  • Langkawi Island & Westin Resort Hotel

    Langkawi Island & Westin Resort Hotel
    If you are to have a totally relaxing summer holiday, Langkawi Island is your choice. There're so many beautiful beaches on this island where you can't resist stopping by and giving a good Lomo shot. And if you are to wish to soak under the sun in Langkawi Island, or to get your body tanned while facing the pretty sea view.
  • Fukuei Cape Lighthouse

    Fukuei Cape Lighthouse
    Fukuei Cape Lighthouse lies at the very northern end of Taiwan Island. Fukuei Cape Lighthouse often has to deal with fall and winter mist as well as with an unstable climate. To solve the problem, Japanese added a foghorn in the lighthouse, which can warn the boats when the mist is too strong.
  • Lake Malawi

    Lake Malawi
    Malawi is one of the least known places in Africa. It lies between Zambia, Mozambique and Kenia and was formerly attached to North Rodesia. The people there speak English, one of the poorest countries of the world, but everything there works with a smile. Their main economy- products are wood and fish. A lot of fish, because one third of the country is covered by water. That's lake Malawi! One boat, the Ilala, goes weekly from north to south, filled with people, maïs, goats, fish... and very eventually some lost tourists.
  • Desert Sunset of USJ3A

    Desert Sunset of USJ3A
    There was one day when I was on my way to pick my girlfriend up from work around evening time 6 p.m., but I was too early for that. So, I drove myself nearby the area by heading to random direction, where I turned as I saw a corner; and I turned as I saw a junction. Then finally decided to check out a quite new housing area nearby there as well.
  • False Creek Ferries

    False Creek Ferries
    I love the ferries that operate on False Creek in the heart of Vancouver. Looking down on False Creek from one of the 3 bridges that connect Downtown Vancouver to Vancouver West they dart about the inlet like water boatmen skating on a pond. False Creek not only attracts the tourists and day-trippers that come to town for an amusing diversion on the water but it also is much loved by the local residents of this fabulous and unique city. False Creek is surrounded by some of the city's most enticing attractions.
  • Chiltern Sculpture Trail

    Chiltern Sculpture Trail
    The other day I discovered this strange, slightly creepy spot in the Oxfordshire countryside; the Chiltern Sculpture Trail has all the loveliness of a picturesque woodland walk, with all the sinister craziness of a modern art exhibition. As you walk through the woodland, you and your Lomo can discover Blair Witch style tree decorations, a solitary sign saying "Darling, it's dark now" or the end of a road that goes nowhere; and the sculptures, by local artists, are constantly changing, with new ones added all the time, so even on repeated visits you'll find surprises behind every tree.
  • Punta Fuego

    Punta Fuego
    Looking for a place to relax and unwind? Get out of the city and rest somewhere in Batangas, Philippines! Batangas is the HUB for those who want to beat the heat of the sun during summer. Hence, go there during the summer days or when you just feel the need to. Or a Lomo shoot perhaps. I stayed there a couple of times and I always enjoy taking memories with me through my Holga. I give the sceneries and the amenities 5 out of 5. The best shots I had with my Holga were captured at Punta Fuego, Batangas. It is located at the tip most part of Batangas and it is around 3 to 4 hours travel by land from the metro.
  • Victorian Era Buildings

    Victorian Era Buildings
    Troy, New York is 15 minutes north of Albany, the capital of New York State. During the mid-19th and early 20th centuries, Troy was one of the most prosperous cities in the United States due mainly to the iron works and textile factories that lined the riverfront.
  • Brach’s Candy Factory

    Brach’s Candy Factory
    I recently went to the abandoned Brach's Candy Factory, 401 N. Cicero Ave., Chicago, IL. At the time of its closing in 2004, it was the largest candy factory in the world. Although it has only been three years since it closed, its interior condition has quickly deteriorated. The factory is easy to get into the plant via a noticeable break in the fence and is located on Chicago's West Side near the intersection of N. Cicero Ave. and W. Lake Street. You can use Chicago's rapid transit system by taking the Green Line: Lake, getting off at the Cicero station. The station is on the northeast corner of Lake and Cicero and the candy factory is off to the left of the station. You may find homeless people in some of the rooms of the factory. We did, but they just said hello as we walked by.
  • Richmond Night Market

    Richmond Night Market
    This night market has something for everyone. Open from 7 pm to midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sundays from May to October. There are lots of stalls/vendors with gadgets, clothing, flowers, Korean stationary (my favorite is Afro Ken), cell phones & accessories, traditional Asian products, lucky bamboo... and on... and on... Bring plenty of cash!!! Stuff is cheap but most don't take credit cards.
  • Vatican Museums

    Vatican Museums
    I've never been a huge fan of museums because frankly while traveling, I'd rather see the beautiful cityscape and enjoy mingling with the locals while sampling the country's speciality dishes however the Vatican museums are definitely an exception.
  • Chau Doc

    Chau Doc
    Chau Doc is a Vietnamese river city close to the Cambodia border. There are a number of floating houses (the floats are empty metal drums) which provide a convenient way for families to raise fish underneath. What makes Chau Doc interesting is its mix of communities, Khmer, Cham, and Chinese. The Cham are mostly Muslim, and leave in isolated communities across the river, complete with mosques. It's an incredibly friendly and bustling little city.

    The Bramble Bush Bay chain link ferry operates between Sandbanks and Shell Bay at the entrance of Poole Harbour on the south coast of England. It transports pedestrians and any type of vehicle imaginable from bicycles to double-decker buses.

  • Kaziuko Muge

    Kaziuko Muge (English: Kaziukas Fair) - is a biggest annual Lithuanian folk crafts fair dating back to the beginning of the 17th century, held on the Sunday nearest to St. Casimir's Day, March 4, the day Saint Casimir Jagiellon died, and is referred to as Kaziukio mugė in Lithuanian, literary - Little Casimir's Fair.

  • Alor Setar

    Alor Setar
    Alor Setar, the place surrounded by huge rice fields. Travelling by car from Kuala Lumpur (Capital of Malaysia) will take you about 5 hours instead of 12 hours with a journey by train. But as a Lomographer, I prefer using train. Don't you? I went there once really early in the morning, just after the sunrise. You will see designed lamp posts along the street. These design represent the flag & history of Alor Setar. The air was so fresh, the sky was so gorgeous and the sun was so hot! I took my brunch at an old, clean and cheap "kopitiam" (coffee shop in Chinese). The food is just delicious. Don't forget to eat and shoot there! The ambience is just good for shooting. Few miles away, you will see some historical buildings. Muslim is the main religion in our country. Of course, mosque is the place for muslims to pray everyday. From city to town, from town to village. Here we go, the rice fields. I love huge, spacious and green scenery, because I cannot see this in my city anymore. My camera just couldn't stop shooting. Not many cars, little noise, just only green and blue colours in my sight. The "kampung" (village in Malaysian) is just in peace every day. Local people used to call the hill near their houses as The Elephant Hill. It just looks like a giant elephant lying on the ground. According to the local history, that hill was in the past a living-place for elephants. The Elephant Hill really looks good and is well-known. Besides just "green and blue", you can also find combination of "blue & blue" which means "sea & sky".
  • Atomium

    Atomium
    Oh wow! This must be about my favorite place to take photos in Brussels - and I have actually never been inside! (too scared to get disappointed, I guess...). Let's start with some history: the atomium was built for the World's Fair held in Brussels in 1958. The 103 meter tall structure (which represents a unit cell of an iron crystal, in case you were wondering) was planned by André Waterkeyn and it was supposed to stand only for 6 months. That's why the building was in quite a sorry condition for years and had to undergo heavy renovation works a couple of years ago. Now its nine steel spheres are sound and shiny again, craving for photographs! It is also worth visiting after sunset, when the spheres are illuminated. Day or night, go there if you happen to be in Brussels...you will make some beautiful pics!
  • Beach of Altafulla

    Beach of Altafulla
    When I went to Barcelona this summer, I made a little excursion south, in the direction Tarragona, to visit some friends living in Altafulla, small town on the Costa Daurada. It's about 100 km south from Barcelona and easy to go there with the coastal highway. You'll go out at the exit "Torredembarra/Altafulla", then follow the signs to Altafulla. In the city, follow the direction of the "roman ruins" and after "Playa de Altafulla". It's a great and wide sand beach and the beautiful blue/turquoise color of the sea gives you immediately a big smile! :)
  • Downtown Chicago

    Downtown Chicago
    I had never stepped foot in Chicago until June 2006. I lived and worked there for four months. It was love at first sight. From the moment I stepped off the plane the people, the architecture, the lake, the views, the history enchanted me. It was pure unadulterated magic. I lived in Wrigleyville but a girl needs her space from time to time and the best place for me to be alone was the busiest place in Chicago: Downtown. Bustling streets filled with people and noise was the perfect place for me to lose myself.
