  • Cincinnati

    Cincinnati
    I have lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for my entire life. I have seen many things here, but there is always something new (or old) to discover in or around the city. I seldom venture into the downtown heart of my metropolis, but one day I decided to walk block after block while on foot with my LC-A. My friend and I had parked near a local pro shop after being disappointed with the film services and products they offered.
  • Querétaro Highway

    Querétaro Highway
    When we travel by air or by ground, there are some places we never to pay attention to. Places where we are just another peasant, where nothing happens. But when you pay attention, these places are a source of non conventional images; in fact the perfect field for a lomographer. The Mexico City - Querétro Highway it's one of these places. Right now I'm doing an exhaustive photographic record of that road, with a sponsorship I obtained.
  • Vicentina Aranha Hospital

    Vicentina Aranha Hospital
    It used to be a geriatric hospital once, long-long-long time ago and was a place to treat breathing issues. By now it's closed and abandoned. A very impressive place, located on very rich neighborhood in São José dos Campos. The Vicentina Aranha hospital started its activities in 1914 and closed its doors in 2004, after 90 years saving peoples life.
  • Anawangin Cove

    Anawangin Cove
    What I thought to be ubiquitous in Philippine beaches are palm trees, but in Anawangin Cove there are more evergreen trees than palm trees growing on the sand. That's unusual, so my friends and I wanted to see the place. To get there, we took a bus from Manila to San Antonio in Zambales province. Then we took a tricycle to Pundakit beach where we hired a few small boats to take us to Anawangin.
  • Frankfurt Eastend

    Frankfurt Eastend
    If you are in Frankfurt and don't want to see the typical tourist spots you could check out the eastern part instead. There you can find the industrial port, built in 1908 (which you can only see from the outside unfortunately since the entry is forbidden) as well as ancient rail tracks that aren't used anymore, old cranes and the old Grossmarkthalle, one of the most famous market halls in Germany, built in the 1920s.
  • Basilica de Guadalupe

    Basilica de Guadalupe
    The Guadalupe day on the 12th of December is the national festivity of the brunette Virgin Guadalupe. Some people say that everybody is guadalupano in Mexico, it doesn't actually matter what religion they practice... well, that's an exaggeration; I wasn't raised as a Catholic, so I didn't understand (I still don't understand) that way of expressing faith. I had never been at the Guadalupe Basilica (something quite irregular for someone who lives so near it), but last December 12 I visited it with some few fellow photographers.
  • Kaunas Days Festival

    Kaunas Days Festival
    Kaunas - is the second largest city in Lithuania, which was even the capital of Lithuania lots of years ago. Today this is a city, known for its basketball club "Žalgiris", basketball player Arvydas Sabonis and so on. So it is so natural, that the city with such history has got its own festival, which is called the "Kaunas' Days" festival (sometimes it is called only the "Day", not "Days").
  • Bitan Scenic Area

    Bitan Scenic Area
    If you're looking for that weekend escape but can't seem to get the time to leave town, BiTan is the answer. Whether you've got a few hours, or the whole day, this riverside boardwalk provides a wealth of recreational activities and relaxation in a natural setting. Any sunny weekend you can join the crowd riding the MRT to XinDian, at the end of the Green Line, to visit BiTan.
  • Karachi

    Karachi
    I landed in Karachi and was picked up at the airport by my host for the three days. His friend had leant him a car and we drove to his house which was not far from the airport and down the most confusing set of alleyways I have ever seen, there was no way I could ever have retraced the steps had I got lost. Anyway, there in the house I laid down my backpack, heavy after a few months of travel and book-buying. It was already late, and the sun had set outside. John asked me if I was tired, I told him not yet, and so he took me by the arm and said:"We are going to a birthday party tonight, the host will not mind if I bring you".
  • Cagayan de Oro Fiesta

    Cagayan de Oro Fiesta
    Every August 28th, the whole province of Cagayan de Oro gets transformed into an entirely new entity of color, merriment and wonder as they celebrate their yearly festival. Floats, parades, dances and concerts are aplenty as they celebrate and give thanks to another fruitful year. This is a week long event so there is no reason to miss a one of a kind Lomographic photo opportunity. The locals are accommodating and gamely smile for the camera, proud of their heritage as Cagayanos. Getting there is a 1 ½ hour flight from Manila with rates depending on the airline. Accommodations are readily available but book in advance if you're going to the festival since many people go there.

    Barcelona really has a special place in my heart. The architecture of
  • Ponte JK

    Ponte JK
    The Ponte JK (Juscolino Kubitschek Bridge), crossing Paranoá Lake, is today one of the most famous points of Brasilia, the planned city built by President Juscelino Kubitschek to be the capital of Brazil. It was inaugurated in 2002 in his honor and in 2003 it was elected in a World International Congress on Bridges (yes, such a thing exists...) the most beautiful bridge of the world. Alexandre Chan and Mario Vila Verde are respectively the architect and the engineer responsible for its design and construction, which cost around 160 million reis (Brazilian money) (or 80 million American dollars today...). It is a beautiful place, really, because it seems to be so light (despite it weights more than 13 000 tons) and at night the illumination gives it a special aura, as if Brasilia was a huge modern metropolis.
  • Giant Lantern Festival

    Giant Lantern Festival
    Want a feast of colours for your Velvia, Provia, and Astia (Fuji should give me a discount for this one)? Then take your films and cameras and head to the majestic town of Pampanga in the Philippines!
  • Pedra do Baú - Chest Rock

    Pedra do Baú - Chest Rock
    "Above the clouds I see my shadow fly"... with this song inside my head, and wind on my face, climbing the Pedra do Baú is easy as the breeze. Leave all these bricks and walls behind you in the city and come here, at Vale do Paraíba almost the highest point of Brazil and feel the freedom, the pure air and a sort of nirvana state. People go up theses iron stairs fixed on the stone, step by step, to see the nature's beauty above an altitude of 1.700 meters, where you can see the entire valley between Serra do Mar and Serra da Mantiqueira. The big granite rock known as Pedra do Baú was a real challenge for those in search for some hardcore climbing "without stairs" (only professional people allowed, ok?!) or for normal people like you and me, who only want good moments in nature (use those stairs, of course). But be prepared to walk a lot: hiking one or two hours into the forest before you get the iron stairway to heaven. But the view…oh the view. That's magnificent view the only thing that really matters here. Don't miss this place.
  • Chinatown Kristintachibana

    Chinatown Kristintachibana
    A small Chinatown in comparison to the other big cities in the nation, our little Chinatown in Honolulu is packed with shops, eateries, bars and other businesses (even the late night prostitute and/or ice addict...I'm sure those in Chinatown and the city of Honolulu will love the picture I just painted - but it is the truth)...I prefer to walk around during the day to capture the essence of the culture there.
  • St Mary's Church

    St Mary's Church
    Belfast's most famous place of worship is probably St. Anne's Cathedral, located by Cathedral Quarter, a hive of activity at its annual Arts Festival. But in a most unlikely place, St Mary's Church also provides some astonishingly silent sanctuary. A few doors up from Castle Court, Belfast's biggest shopping centre, St Mary's is in a rather odd location, but still a retreat in the midst of city centre madness. Built in 1784, it was Belfast's first Catholic church - before it opened its door, Belfast's Catholic population met to worship at a site called Friar's Bush. Inside the church can be seen brightly-painted statues, Italian artwork, dramatic arrangements of candles and, of course, a depiction of the Sacred Heart.
  • Santa Terezinha Square

    Santa Terezinha Square
    Santa Terezinha Square is a wonderful place in Taubate City. It's a good spot to have a nice time with your family and friends on weekends. With a beautiful garden, it is the perfect place to meet other people, see folk music shows, eat some of the delicious local food, like "pastel" (fried rissole) and sugar cane juice. There you can see the Santa Terezinha Church too, with the famous stained glass windows, with all Jesus history and gorgeous neo-gothic architecture (perfect Lomo subject). The Square once was the Taubaté's downtown area. It was a long time ago. Now it is a place to exercise your faith, playing with your kids or just walk in a beautiful garden.
  • Kaliningrad

    Kaliningrad
    Have you been in Russia? If yes (the main part of it with St. Peter or Moscow), then try Kaliningrad Oblast, or Kaliningrad Area and especially the main town itself. It is situated near the Poland and Lithuania and still has got a pure sense of USSR. Imagine that there are still numbers on the shops, like magazine No.34 in one village and magazine No.35 in the next village just 3 kilometers away.
  • La plaza de Caicedo

    La plaza de Caicedo
    This place has been very important along the Cali's timeline; full of history, bloody baths, treats of peace, new born laws and others nostalgic details.

    Do you want to discover a symbol of the Dolce Vita? Go to Portofino, on Tigullio's gulf, 36 km from Genova, in Liguria, Italy.
