    Nan-chuo Old Street
    This is a place which people tend to forget, the name of it is Nan-chuo old street. On this street the local cultural lifestyle and buildings of passed hundred years have preserved very well. In the past this street use to be very lively. But because the economy is not booming here, very many inhabitants move to big cities nearby to work. Thus the street declines more and more. But some inhabitants are not willing to give up. Take a bicycle and ride through this street to get the view of the most primitive life style.

Vietnamese people don't like montagnards for their old alliance with French and then Americans, that's why they are called "moi" which means savage. From Lao Cai we went to Sapa. This is the area where you can find the best markets all over Vietnam. The scene is really great, green mountains, and flowered among famous for its beautiful clothes.

  • Pigeons of Venice

    Pigeons of Venice
    Okay, okay, so many people call pigeons "rats with wings". They're everywhere, invading our planet by the hoards. They nip at anything edible, poop on your head if you're not careful and basically make a mess. However annoying they are, we all have to admit that they're one of the best lomographic animals around. If you want to mix the photogenic ability of these birds with a stunning backdrop, than there is no better place to go than to Europe's grandest drawing room...the Piazza San Marco in Venice!

  • Lyon Opera House

    Lyon Opera House
    The Opera House in Lyon is really a great architectural building from the end of the 20th century. The original opera house was built 1831 in a very classical style, but as time went by the building was in a bad state at the end of the 1980's and needed to be rebuilt. The famous French architect Jean Nouvel proposed a very revolutionary construction of the Opera house within the old walls of the building, to conserve the historical heritage of the place. The inside of the Opera was totally rebuilt, and the most important work was around the rooftop of the building: the old classical glass & iron construction of the 19th century couldn't be restored, and there was Jean Nouvel's most spectacular idea: a brand new rooftop, still constructed with darkened glass for the light but with an ultra modern design of an half-circle over the old walls! The project provoked a very big debate among the citizens of Lyon (like every revolutionary construction...), some of them adored this new roof, other hated it and said it was a scandal to make of the opera house such an ugly building.... Finally the project was accepted and was inaugurated 1993.
  • Telok Chempedak Beach

    Telok Chempedak Beach
    During a Lomo outing with a bunch of Lomogrpahers to Kuantan, we passed by a beach named Telok Chempedak. The first impression of Telok Chempedak beach was like in heaven - golden sands, waves, sun, people, everything was just great! I love this place so much. Telok Chempedak is located just approximately 5 km from the Kuantan town.
  • Kent Falls

    Kent Falls
    Kent Falls is way on up in the corner of New England, basically there are a bunch of waterfalls there but also some picnicky fun. It originally was all set up for people when the new deal sent teenagers under the CCC program to fix it all up in the 30s. It kind of means a bunch to my family because my grandfather was in the CCC and my other grandfather went to the falls growing up, last time I went, I went with grandma and grandpa as well as my parents and nieces.

They celebrate it by walking around the streets of the city with really big and heavy figures of the Christian saints carrying it on their own shoulders for hours, most of them make it the whole day, but many have to change because its about 40-80 kg for each person.
  • Salmon River

    Salmon River
    Nestled up in northern Idaho runs the Salmon River. The middle section of the rivers is world famous (whether you've heard of it or not) for its white water rapids and scenery. One must set sail from the designated spot and the nearest outtake area is about 4 days float, if you move quick, and by quick I mean the speed of the water which is of course how fast everyone goes.
  • 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!
