  • Santo Antônio do Pinhal

    Santo Antônio do Pinhal
    Feel the mountains' fresh air. Hear the sound of nature. Taste the flavor of this little place called Santo Antonio do Pinhal, a town on the mountains, where the local way of life is the law. And Santo Antonio is affordable (you don't need much money to eat or stay well there).
  • St Benezet's Bridge

    St Benezet's Bridge
    I don't know if foreigners have ever heard of it, but in France, everybody learns in primary school the song "Sous le Pont d"Avignon, on y danse, on y danse" (on the bridge of Avignon, one dances round and round...)
  • Views from Tibidabo

    Views from Tibidabo
    Tibidabo is one of the highest hills surrounding the city of Barcelona (512 m) and is still very close to it to have one of the greatest views over the whole city. There is also a little attraction park, but more meant for children than to adults. You have also the great church of "Sagrat Chor" dominating the hill and not far from there the Colserrola Tower and the different tv and radio networks antennas.
  • Gardens at Jorge Zarur Avenue

    Gardens at Jorge Zarur Avenue
    Streets at night always have some good spots to go to with your lomographic piece of equipment. And here in Brazil, it's not different. This is an avenue on São José dos Campos, a city near mine. It's the way to one of most famous Malls of the city: Shopping Colinas.
  • Louisiana Museum

    Louisiana Museum
    This one is for the art lovers. Louisiana museum for modern art is located north of Copenhagen and has a beautiful ocean view. All year it hosts exhibitions from both national and international artists. The place is peaceful and minimalists, and contains several buildings with many areas.
  • 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.
  • Da Vinci Café

    Da Vinci Café
    At the Davinci Cafe; situated in BeiTou's Taipei National University of the Arts, one can see the entire city of Taipei by night. Looking out the full-length windows, one can even see the Taipei 101. Davinci Cafe not only possesses great views, but their cuisine is also authentic Italian. Whether it is the Grilled Veal Tenderloin Fillet with Goose Liver Sauce, the mixed seafood Plate with Cream Lemon Sauce or other Italian pasta dishes, the food and the views are equally good. All the bread and desserts in the salad bar are prepared by chefs from Hong Kong. The food is so delicious!
  • The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Monastery

    The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Monastery
    Yes, of course - you will be asking why the hell did I shoot those nice flowers instead of the Church and monastery... You would be right, but I will tell you something, that will be useful if you will go there. Do not go there late in the evenings, cause the monks close the doors of the monastery, so you have to go round it and take the pictures only of the buildings. But, that's not bad, as I did find one of the back doors open, and while nobody did see me, I did one last shot for my film (damn, I could have taken more films...). So you can check the inside of it.
  • Kendal Castle

    Kendal Castle
    Kendal Castle dates from the 1200s, but has been in disrepair since the 1600s. It stands atop a ridge to the east of Kendal town centre and can be seen from many places in and around the town. As a native of Kendal I spent many childhood days clambering around the walls and remnants of its former glory, keeping the Scots marauding the town at bay, although there's no record of the castle itself ever having to be defended against their assaults.
  • Ried Park Zoo

    Ried Park Zoo
    This is not only a Zoo, but a park with several ponds, a dog park, little league baseball fields, Colorado Rockies practice field, golf course, tennis courts and public art centre (including public darkrooms). Yes folks this is the ultimate Lomographic location. You can go see the exotic animals in the zoo and later go to the ponds and feed the aquatic fowl. Pay a buck or two and take a little train ride around the park while your dog plays with more of its own species in the dog park. Pause for a chat with the old man with the metal detector searching for rare tokens and other precious metals. When you're done, head to the dark room to reveal what your camera thinks that you need to take home as memories. There is so much to do here that you can certainly revisit again and again.
  • Aghios Nikolaos

    Aghios Nikolaos
    Need a vacation? Take it, but be careful - if you plan to take a rest at home, you can receive a call from your boss at any moment "please, can you come just for 15 minutes, we need your help". So the best plan is to go somewhere really far away, for example - the Crete Island. And if you really plan to go there for your vacation, choose Aghios Nikolaos town, as it is THE BEST resort town in whole Crete (well, at least you can hear that at your tourist information office). And it really is awesome. First of all, Aghios Nikolaos is a coastal town and the capital of Lasithi province (Crete Island is divided into 4 or 5 prefectures). The most amazing fact is that the town is built on the ruins of the ancient city. People call it Saint Nicholas town because Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors and of all of Greece.

  • Batad Rice Terraces

    Batad Rice Terraces
    Rice terraces are common in Asia, but in the Philippines, you can find rice terraces built by the Ifugao tribe over 2000 years ago on steep slopes and at altitudes reaching up to 1500 meters. One of the popular rice terraces that tourists visit is in Batad in Ifugao Province. The Batad rice terraces are beautifully formed in the shape of an ampitheater.
  • Kazakh Steppe

    Kazakh Steppe
    The largest country of Central Asia is Kasakhstan. But that doesn't mean that it is densely populated. The opposite is the case. The former Soviet Republic is rich of oil-resources but otherwise the nature is very poor. The harsh and high temperatures make it a not very fruitful soil. But besides the steppe of wild grass the soviet leadership tried to implement monocultures such as wheat or cotton in a very big style. So eventually the people, who formerly lived as nomads and had huge herds of sheep and cattle, became a nation of peasants and filled the largest chamber of wheat in the union.
  • Las Vegas

    Las Vegas
    Ever been to Vegas? This Gods forsaken oasis in the middle of the desert? You have to see it! It's like Disneyland on Mars. And I mean it not only literally! If you fly in you see nothing but red sand for a long time, but suddenly lights blink and the desert is illuminated. Have you seen "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas"? Well, it's like it. When you arrive in the airport slot-machines already wait for you. If you are in the city there is no way around the roulette-table. What should you do anyway.
  • Lavysas Lake

    Lavysas Lake
    This is my favorite and number one lake in Lithuania. All you need is a tent and sleeping bag. Don't forget to take some friends with you too. Then you can stay anywhere you want, the land next to the lake doesn't belong to anybody. Don't be afraid to go here with little children - lake is shoal.
  • Luneta Park

    Luneta Park
    Unfairly labelled as a make out haven for lovers, Luneta is one of the most important places in Philippine history. One can't help but feel a sense of nationalism as you step into the park. The Rizal Monument signifies the exact location where the national hero was shot on the road to the country's independence. On a more positive note, it is a photographic haven with its harmonious mix of playgrounds, orchidariums and picnic areas. Wait for dusk and see the most magnificent sunset you'll see by the bay. All you need to do is to ride a Jeepney or a bus going to Quiapo and go down there itself.
  • Bullerdeich In Hammerbrook

    Bullerdeich In Hammerbrook
    The area I live in is basically not inhabited. Hammerbrook in Hamburg is an industrial- and business-territory. But there are lofts and there am I. I live in an Artists House where people live in lofts and start projects together, but this very spot will be explained in a few weeks. The main objective is the Bullerdeich: It is one fantastic secret wild park close to my flat.
  • Ravello

    Ravello
    Ravello has the most divine panoramic view of Italy! Ravello is situated near the Amalfi coast, in Italy, near Naples, on a splendid position, on a rocky spur astride the Dragon's and Reginna's Valleys. Ravello was an important town of the Maritime Republic of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200. But when the people from Pisa attacked and sacked it, a slow decline began.
