  • Cathedral Notre Dame

    Cathedral Notre Dame
    The cathedral of "Notre Dame" of Paris, in the real historical center of the city (Island of the city, on the Seine) is a world-known monument and for sure one of the most visited places by the tourists in Paris. Always a very crowded place and typical "postcard" of your stay in Paris... But to say truly, the religious gothic style of this building is really worth the visit, it's a beautiful cathedral.
  • Shao He Ting Antique Market

    Shao He Ting Antique Market
    Chaoheting Market originated from a fair called Lung-an Market, run by the Taipei City Government. It was full of stalls selling all kinds of meat, fish, and fowl. Located in the heart of one of the most popular tourist areas in Taipei city, Shao He Ting sells a wide variety of antiques from Taiwan's Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). These include ticket stubs, movie posters, toys, jade ornaments and store signs, as well as larger items like tables, chairs and cabinets. Every weekend, this market is crowded with antique dealers from all over the island, as well as local residents and tourists. I like old lights here, they are so special and old. But I have too many lights in my room now.
  • 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!
  • Carnival

    Carnival
    If you are looking for a different Carnival, full of funny costumes, drinking and loud music, everything in a small town - you found the right
  • 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.
  • Bay of Ecalgrain

    Bay of Ecalgrain
    A little bay next to La Hague in Normandy, a beach of shingle between the sea and the cliff: this is the bay of Ecalgrain... Maybe the more beautiful beach of the spot! In the sunny afternoons you can meet some tourists but from 6 p.m. it's a pleasure to be almost alone in front of the sunset. One day I was swimming underwater with my water-glasses and I've seen the shadow of a dolphin. Yes! I swear! Ok, it could have been my glasses which were dirty... But you can see some fish all the same! Just come and see! And bring with you a piece of bread, some cheese and a bottle of red wine, it will be a great French experience!
  • Bandar Botanic Garden

    Bandar Botanic Garden
    Bandar botanic is one of the housing areas in Klang, Malaysia. Bandar Botanic is a favourite place among homebuyers because it is built with nature in mind. It is not only to create a harmonious environment but also to ensure that nature as we see it today can be enjoyed by the community and would remain as it is for our future generations.
  • Blue Ridge Mountains

    Blue Ridge Mountains
    Right before school had resumed, my father and I took a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. We went hiking every day in the mountains. These pictures are from when we reached the summit of Sugar Mountain. It was a gorgeous day as we ate wild blueberries and braced ourselves from the fierce winds against the sharp boulders.
  • The Wall Monuments

    The Wall Monuments
    You can find Wall Monuments all over the city of Berlin. They are charted in mostly every city map of Berlin and are easy to reach with the S-Bahn or on foot. The most popular and largest Wall Monument (1316 m long) is the East-Side-Gallery in the Mühlenstraße between the Ostbahnhof and the Oberbaumbrücke along the river Spree. It is called East-Side-Gallery because after the Fall of the Wall in 1989 artists from all over the world commented the political changes of the years 1989/90 in 106 paintings and graffiti and it is on the formerly east side of Berlin. Lots of those paintings are strongly weathered in the course of time - mostly because of urban emissions. So there was found an association to save this Wall Monument from further destruction and it was renovated and conserved. The East-Side-Gallery is a listed building.
  • FC Fossombrone

    FC Fossombrone
    This football team, in my view, is a legend. Without any achievements and success. The FC Fossombrone is playing the sixth Italian league and their games are only to be seen in the stadium and on their webpage. The story behind the team is that it was bought by the Belgian designer Dirk Bikkemberg. He turned this club around and gave it a complete make over. He designed the complete gear from socks to the under-wears and shirts. He built a new stadium with the green and the flags all designed. The jersey with the blue spiral and the white ground is the prettiest in the world. I read about this team in a German newspaper and it right away strike me, that Bikkemberg finalized the symbiosis between fashion and sport. The players of the team are also the models of Bikkemberg regular collection and star of his commercials.
  • 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.
  • Island of If

    Island of If
    One of the best known islands in the whole world - the island of If. I could not find the story about the island, why is it called like that - If. But one thing I know for sure is that this island is famous because of the Count of Monte Cristo. As you can remember the story of Alexandre Dumas, this Count was jailed there and the whole story is about how he tries to escape from this small island, where only the building of jail is located. I do not remember the exact amount of time, but I guess that he escaped only after several years (maybe 7 or 13) by digging the whole in the wall with the spoon.
  • Laisves aleja - Freedom avenue

    Laisves aleja - Freedom avenue
    Liberty Avenue is the main street (avenue) in Kaunas. As far as I can count so there are about 20 restaurants and cafes and more than 50 shops. At one end of the avenue there is a church and on the other it turns to Vilnius Street, which goes to the old town.
  • Fun-o-rama

    Fun-o-rama
    Fun-o-rama is like this old azz arcade place right on the Short Sands beach, it is up in Southern Maine, USA. This beach town originally became a vacation spot for the rich and famous or at least upper class during the gilded age, Mark Twain stayed a long weekend once, anyways there are all these old type buildings that used to be grand hotels surrounding Fun-o-rama but this building is just a kid. After World War II Americans started to have the money for vacation, like regular working class Americans... my grandpa went for the first time to Fun-O-rama in 1948, the building was new, Skee-ball was a penny and the whole vacation costed him 65 dollars for the week. The rich left when the regular working man came and so now it s a very wacky mix.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Hooters

    Hooters
    Known the world over for "aesthetically pleasing waitresses", Hooters is an institution in itself. Its expansion to Asia brought out a lot of curious customers including me, for a taste of what the chain has to offer. Although a far cry from the Hooters of American fame, they still manage to make the trip worthwhile as evidenced by the large number of foreigners and ex-pats sampling the local version. The signature hoola-hoops session in the middle of the store is still practiced and encouraged for the willing customers. The store specialty of Buffalo Wings are a treat in itself. If you don't fancy the Hooter ladies, you can always go here to enjoy and appreciate the delicious cuisine that they offer. Hooters is located in the middle of Clarke Quay.
  • Grotto

    Grotto
    This Grotto is a replica of the one in Lourdes, France. It is located in San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan. They also built a replica of the Church, at least externally. The gothic design is very unusual and not typical of basilicas in the Philippines. It is a place of prayer and pilgrimage.
  • Philippine Tricycle

    Philippine Tricycle
    We all know (well most people) that the quintessential Philippine way of getting around is with the legendary Jeepney. However it is unavoidable that in some cases that we would need to go someplace that won't have the luxury of space. We would require something a little more compact which is what the Philippine tricycle is all about. It is basically a cheap motorcycle (in same cases just a bicycle) welded with an aluminium sidecar.
  • Hahn Airport

    Hahn Airport
    Vacation can be real vacation only if you can get yourself far away from your everyday environment. No phone-calls from your boss "well, maybe you could stop by just for a second, cause we are having difficulties with the project" and so on. If you are far away from your home, you can even start forgetting the day of the week or even the time itself... How to do that? Cars and boats are expensive and quite lazy, so we have to choose planes... Good news: Frankfurt Hahn airport in Germany is one of the best stops in the whole Europe. You know why? Because you can go everywhere you want - this airport and of course some of the air-companies offer cheap flights to... Murcia in Spain or Verona in Italy... Or Africa... Or whatever you want.
