  • Queen's Island

    Queen's Island
    Queen's Island on the River Lagan is home to the Harland and Wolff ship-yards, birthplace of the Titanic, probably Belfast's most famous export. The Belfast shipbuilding industry can be dated back to the mid-1600s, and the banks of the Lagan became devoted to the H+W shipyards in the late eighteenth century. From Queen's Island came some of the most famous ships in modern history, such as the Olympic and the Britannia. Despite its sticky end, the Titanic is still celebrated as one of the most notable triumphs of modern industry, and its history is celebrated each year during the Belfast "Titanic Festival".
  • MACBA

    MACBA
    Do you know the MACBA in Barcelona? What is it?? It's the famous "Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona", great place of contemporary art, great building, and great place where the daily part of the Sonar festival takes place. It's located near of the "Plaça Catlunya" and the "Ramblas" in the centre of the city (Pl. dels Angels, 1). Easy to find, just follow the signs... The building was inaugurated 1995 and is the work of the architect Richard Meier.
  • Hill of Crosses

    Hill of Crosses
    Welcome to mysterious hill of crosses! The sacred, religious and touristy place, consists not only crosses, but giant crucifixes, carvings of Lithuanian patriots, statues of the Virgin Mary and thousands of tiny effigies and rosaries which have been brought here by Catholic pilgrims. The old story tells the first crosses were built in 1831 by people who lost their relatives in fight with the Russian Czar government, later with USSR. The Hill of Crosses was used as a place for Lithuanians to pray for peace, for their country, and for the loved ones they had lost.
  • Saint Clair Convent Cemetery

    Saint Clair Convent Cemetery
    The Franciscans funded the Saint Clair Convent back in 1673 and their cemetery is on the right side of the convent complex. It's very peaceful place, where Taubaté's people commemorate their loved and missed ones. It's one of oldest cemeteries of the city. On that same cemetery were they buried lots of important Taubaté's historical characters, we can see many Christ's statues, cool stone tombstones and the richest families mausoleums that are very creepy at night (ok, I can walk inside the cemetery at night, but shhhhh, don't tell to anyone), but very cool to shot at daytime.
  • King's Forest at West Stow

    King's Forest at West Stow
    If you flew over East Anglia in a helicopter you'd see below you a dark and rather gloomy area of forest somewhere in the middle of the more usual fen and farming landscape. If you drove along the A11 to Norwich, you would drive through a desolate and unexciting section of the same dark, dripping pine forest. Either way, you wouldn't feel tempted to explore further, which would be a shame, as on the boundary of this admittedly uninviting forest is a place where a much older deciduous woodland still exists among the plantations of pine and fir.
  • Christchurch

    Christchurch
    Usually when I meet travelers who've been to Christchurch (New Zealand), they often didn't really like it. One person described it to me as a "horrible little town". And while it's not a town (it's a whole city, thank you very much), I can see what they mean. If you try and go out on Sunday - Wednesday nights, the city is pretty much deserted (except for backpacker & $1-drink bars, but the locals who hang out there aren't really the best ambassadors for the city) and for about half of the year it's cold, grey, and miserable.
  • Zypliai Estate

    Zypliai Estate
    Zypliai estate has eleven buildings. Nowadays only three buildings are used. In one building, where 150 years ago they used to keep horses, there is a museum now. In the other building you can find an information centre. They are repairing some of the buildings at the moment, so you can go inside and take a look what is done.
  • Mount Batulao

    Mount Batulao
    The first time I went to Mount Batulao was to celebrate my birthday on a September weekend with some friends. The picturesque jagged ridge of Mount Batulao looks like it has snow-capped peaks but it is actually just covered with cogon grass and its white plume-like flowers. We set up our tents on the first campsite that we saw that has a tree.
  • Sydney

    Sydney
    So if you ask me what is the best city on Earth to take Lomo pictures I'll have to say Sydney (AU). Don't know why no one here wrote about Sydney yet. But ok, I'll be the first one. ...
  • Lake Caliraya

    Lake Caliraya
    Lake Caliraya is a man-made lake situated in the towns of Lumban, Cavinti, and Kalayaan in Laguna province, Philippines. It is approximately 1,200 feet above sea level. The climate in the area is considerably cool throughout the year. The lake was created by the Americans circa 1930s to generate hydroelectric power.
  • Tall Ship The Bounty

    Tall Ship The Bounty
    In August 2007, the tall ship The Bounty, visited Maryport on the west coast of Cumbria. The ship, a replica of the one famed for the 1789 mutiny between Fletcher Christian and Captain Bligh in the South Pacific, docked in the tiny port as part of a world voyage which continues through 2008.
  • Wimereux

    Wimereux
    My first time in northern France in the region of Boulogne was good fun. Though the trip was solely for the purpose of golf, the little town of Wimereux proved to be quaint and very homey (and the golf course superb!). As all French villages and seaside towns go, it had that lovely holiday feel to it. Lots of narrow streets, old buildings and locals to capture on film. The coast is a great place to have a stroll and to admire the old fort which guards France from the north as well.
  • Abandoned Trains

    Abandoned Trains
    Route 32 in Watervliet, NY (about 12 miles from Albany) passes over the mainline of the Delaware & Hudson Railway, much like the other highway overpasses in the area. The casual observer may miss the Lomographer's treasure trove which lies beneath the bridge, along side the tracks.
  • Grouse Mountain

    Grouse Mountain
    A trip up to Grouse Mountain is a must for visitors, the scenery is amazing and there's so much to do all year round. In winter it's a snow-sports playground, with skiing, snowboarding, terrain parks, snowshoeing and ice-skating. You can rent the equipment here if you need to and there are lessons too. While you're sliding around you'll be enjoying views of the city below, and the other north shore mountains. Grouse is one of 3 local ski areas, but only Grouse has the Sky ride, a big red gondola which operates year round.
  • Englishman’s Promenade

    Englishman’s Promenade
    The Promenade des Anglais (literally the Englishman's promenade) is one of the main places to see if you stay in Nice. It's the whole coastal pedestrian walk along the seafront in Nice where you can admire the beautiful landscape of what is called the Baie des Anges, the Angel's bay.
  • Azores

    Azores
    Azores - so, this is heaven. In any map, you can see some needles heads lost in the Atlantic Ocean over the central rift. People used to say that Azores are the tops of some of the tallest mountains on the planet and what remains from Atlantica.
  • Creux du Van

    Creux du Van
    Best time to go there is in the summer months, since you got to reach the top of the mountain walking up. Good shoes and not too much of backpack to carry is an important tip. Ah yes and even if it's Switzerland, don't forget to carry one or two bottles of water with you. There are not too many fountains in the region.
  • Honeymoon Bay

    Honeymoon Bay
    Mounting the waves becomes more challenging and exciting as the cold winter months creep in. All around Taiwan, swells from September to October are 3-5 feet (one to nearly two meters). The largest waves, 5-6 feet (two meters), are found from November to February. So seriously, if you want to catch the best waves, it's time to boogie.
  • Park Güell

    Park Güell
    Park Güell is definitely one of the highlights of Barcelona. Constructed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi back in the years 1900-1914, this park offers you a small peak into the mind of Gaudi and what inspires his art. You will see how he moulded and shaped everything from benches to ceilings and walls in the form of nature...various animals, leaves and waves. As you enter the park (which is enormous), you are entranced by all the gorgeous mosaic tiles that cover nearly EVERYTHING, including the famous dragon which seems to be guarding the park.
  • Pulau Ketam

    Pulau Ketam
    On 13th October this year (2007), a bunch of Lomographers from Malaysia went to a small island in Klang for a Lomo outing. We had 11 Lomographers which joined the outing activities and all were equipped with at least two Lomo cameras. We reached the port of Klang around 9.30 a.m and took a boat to our destination which was Pulau Ketam. We reached it around 12p.m. When I first reached there, what attracted me the most was the port of the Pulau Ketam. Besides that, the other thing that attracted me was the boat that was used by the fishermen. It was so colourful and it was absolutely perfect for Lomo shots. So I took out my cam and had non-stop picture shooting.
