  • Valencia

    Valencia
    Valencia is a city next to the beach where lots of Spanish and foreign students are living. Therefore it never lacks of animation. First of all, the city is amazing in an architectural point of view. Indeed, the main river, called the Turia, has been dried because of flood problems and they decided to make a huge park inside.
  • Boeing Factory

    Boeing Factory
    The Boeing Factory is about 25 miles north of Seattle. There is a big visitor centre with lots of bits of planes and interactive displays. A 42 foot tail from a 747 looks huge when you see a person standing beside it, then realize it's just the tail, the scale is impressive. Display sections of the new 787 Dreamliner are nice to see, the windows have a touch-screen shade control which looks very cool. Also inside are TV screens showing the features of the new plane.
  • Downtown Vancouver and beyond

    Downtown Vancouver and beyond
    From street level at the Harbor Centre building in Vancouver you can ride the elevator to The Lookout, a 360 degree observatory high above the city. It's open all day from about 9 am to 10 pm and your ticket is valid for the whole day, so you can go back for night shots. It costs about $13 per person. The elevator is on the outside of the building which is great for views too.
  • Arles

    Arles
    Arles is an ancient city in the south of France, in the Bouches-du-Rhône county. Arles was established by the Greeks as early as the 6th century BC. The Romans took the town in 123 BC and expanded it into an important city, with a canal link to the Mediterranean Sea being constructed in 104 BC. However, it struggled to escape the shadow of Massalia (Marseille) further along the coast.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Phu Kradung National Park

    Phu Kradung National Park
    Last winter, I made a trip with my dudes to the Phukadung National Park. We started at Mor-Chit, the North Eastern Bus Terminal and took the air-conditioned bus to Loei Province in the evening. The next day, we arrived at Loei and got off at Pha Nok Khao. Here we had some breakfast. After that we took the local bus to Phukradung National Park. And then, we started our track to the top of the Phukradung Mountain. At noon we arrived and then we relaxed before walking 3 more kilometres to our camp. The rest of the day we spent with setting up our camp and take a rest. And dinner was served. In the morning of day 3, we got up very early. But it was worth it, because saw the beautiful sunrise at Pha Nok An cliff. Once we returned to our camp, it was time to have our breakfast.

  • Georgia Guide Stones

    Georgia Guide Stones
    A strange and mysterious place, surrounded by evil forces, sits upon a high hilltop in eastern Georgia, USA. What is this place? Some call it America's Stonehenge. Some call it the work of the devil. People came from far and wide to receive psychic messages from it. The locals ignore it. It is, The Georgia Guide Stones.
  • Liège

    Liège
    My name is Kim and I've been living in Liège for a long time now. I don't want to worry about how many people are living in Liège or how many square meters Liège is. Liège is a nice city in Belgium and is a part of the Wallonia region (there is also a Flemish region and a German one! wonderful for one of the 3 smallest countries of the whole Universe!). Despite of the fact that it is a small city in a small country, Liège is always moving very fast! We love evolution, art and culture. I have several places where I love to go.
  • Friedhof Sihlfeld

    Friedhof Sihlfeld
    You could go there any time around the year, though the opening times are variable depending on the season. You think probably it's just a cemetery. BUT - it's the biggest coherent green area in Zürich. For it's a cemetery where you could almost feel like in an huge park. There are several trees and plants from different parts in the world - Magnolias or Chinese Acacias or false acacias as of course the local vegetation. The Fauna is prosperous, foxes live there now for generations, and of course birds and other rodents. Beside of that, of course you can admire the exact structuring of the tombs. Walls and segments of urn -graves extend themselves imposingly, surrounded by the aesthetically arranged family-graves. The Crematory building is surely worth a visit too. Two Sphinxes on the entrance pillars beware the Chapel of unexpected intruders. A small round tank/pool with a couple of goldfishes in the middle of the forecourt - two colonnades on the left and the right side of the Chapel. I saw pics of the interior but I never have been inside myself since it always has been closed, when I was there.

    Makati Central Business District
    I have been working in the Makati central business district (CBD) for many years. It is known as a major financial and commercial area in Metro Manila. Many international companies have offices there. There are also many hotels, serviced apartments, inns, condominiums, restaurants, and shopping centers.
  • 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.
  • Monaco Grand Prix Race

You probably did not know my name till today, but from now on I am a real pain for all the teams of real F1 - Ferrari, McLaren and Renault are already scared. Monaco Grand Prix is already mine! Yes, all you lomolovers who are huge fans of Formula1 MUST go to Monaco, because it is the only place in the world where you can freely try the feeling of being the race king. Ok, The Monaco Grand Prix (Grand Prix de Monaco) is a Formula One race held each year on the Circuit de Monaco. Run since 1929, it is widely considered to be one of the most important and prestigious automobile races in the world.
  • Casa Mila

    Casa Mila
    My first attraction on my Barcelona trip this summer. A must for anyone, either you love art or not. Any time any hours, any minutes; either morning or evening, the views are great! I only managed to get myself some bright sunlight pictures, but seeing other people's evening shots or sunset shots on the warrior roof, they are fab!
  • Grande Corniche

    Grande Corniche
    The Grande Corniche is one of the 3 coastal roads going from Nice to Menton and the Italian border. There's the Basse Corniche (lower coastal road), the Moyenne Corniche (middle coastal road) and the Grande Corniche (High coastal road) also known as the road D2564 (see this link for the exact location of the road: "http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html":http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html). This road was constructed by Napoleon the 1st at the beginning of the 19th century and was the only way to go from Nice to Menton. Take the beginning of the road in Nice, near of the port, and follow the signs "Observatoire" or "Grande Corniche". It's climbing until 500-800m above the sea and that's why it's one of the best places to admire the beautiful Mediterranean landscapes of the Cote d'Azur. The whole area around this road is a natural park with beautiful forests and a lot of walking possibilities through the park.

    Cold and classical Christmas Party in the hot, hot tropical summer.
  • Nan-chuo Old Street

    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.
