  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Mogwai

    Mogwai
    Nestled at the center of Marikina Shoe Expo or what is more affectionately called "Cubao X", is Mogwai, a bar owned by one of the most acclaimed directors in Philippine cinema, Erik Matti. It is the ideal place to chill out or for a nightcap, with beers pegged at a dollar each. You can get dessert with their specialty the choco lava cake where you can see the sweet filling oozing before your eyes.
  • 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
  • Chinatown Bangkok

    Chinatown Bangkok
    Like in other countries in the world, Bangkok also has its own Chinatown. The Bangkok's Chinatown district runs along Yaowarat Road from Odeon Circle up to the Ong Ang Canal. It's made famous for its gold shop and pawnshops or just about anything you wanted to buy could be found here.
  • Clark Field

    Clark Field
    Last weekend, I had a chance to take some time to shoot at the open exhibit located at Clark Airbase. This place played a vital role during the world war. It is an airbase of the Filipino and American soldiers who sacrificed their lives for my country, the Philippines. Too bad it was raining when I had the shoot. I really wasn't able to capture all the things I wanted to.
  • Playground

    Playground
    Ask yourself - are you super stylish, are you fashion-directed, are you a fashion victim? If you could answer yes to one of the questions above or maybe all of them - you should not miss out this concept store located at SOI THONGLOR. This is like the famous concept store COLETTE in Paris but bigger, housing a Starbucks, 2 restaurant, a cooking school, magazine store, music corner, art space and of course the fashion clothing, jewelry, stationary, furniture, utensils for kitchen, appliances, decorations and other nick-nacks. What ever that is hot, new, avant garde, weird, trendy and limited edition - you will find it here.
  • La Boqueria

    La Boqueria
    I had a wonderful time in Barcelona. It's one of my favorite cities. It's a very modern city, but it's the old part that always makes me come back. During a very hot day I was looking for some gifts to offer to my friends that stayed in Lisbon (my home town) at "Ramblas" one of the most famous sidewalks in Europe. Suddenly I found a fresh place where the colors, the smells and the flavors are different than all the other places that I visited before. The place that I am talking about is called "La Boqueria". It's a typical market where people can find all the kinds of fruits, vegetables, fishes and a lot off different exotic things like bugs, for example.
  • Luneta Park

    Luneta Park
    Unfairly labelled as a make out haven for lovers, Luneta is one of the most important places in Philippine history. One can't help but feel a sense of nationalism as you step into the park. The Rizal Monument signifies the exact location where the national hero was shot on the road to the country's independence. On a more positive note, it is a photographic haven with its harmonious mix of playgrounds, orchidariums and picnic areas. Wait for dusk and see the most magnificent sunset you'll see by the bay. All you need to do is to ride a Jeepney or a bus going to Quiapo and go down there itself.
  • Alexanderplatz

    Alexanderplatz
    The Alexanderplatz is a living myth that belongs to Berlin like the Brandenburg Gate. It was a market square, which received his name, based on the russian zar as he was visiting Berlin, in 1805. But it became a legend just after it was connected to U- and S-Bahn in the 20s of the last century and even more so after the Second World War.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Castle of Santa Catalina

    Castle of Santa Catalina
    These shots were taken at the Cruz to the Castillo de Santa Catalina at Jaén city. Jaén city is situated 82 km from Granada and you can get the buses to drive there every half hour in the bus-station at Granada and the trip takes around one hour. The city has a lots of things to lomo and to see and one of those things is the cross (see my photos) that is situated on top of the highest mountain near the city. On this place it is possible to see the whole town of Jaén, all the surrounding mountains and landscape with olive trees.
  • 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.
  • St Benezet's Bridge

    St Benezet's Bridge
    I don't know if foreigners have ever heard of it, but in France, everybody learns in primary school the song "Sous le Pont d"Avignon, on y danse, on y danse" (on the bridge of Avignon, one dances round and round...)
  • Santuario Fatima

    Santuario Fatima
    It was May 13th 1917 when the Virgin Mary appeared for the first time to three shepherd children at Cova da Iria, a few kilometers from Fátima. It certainly was a turning point for the small village that nowadays receives more than 7 million visitors every year and it is one the most important religious tourism destinations in the world.
  • The Grand Place

    The Grand Place
    Belgium is a tiny country with Brussels as its capital. I find that many people bypass it on their travels...in fact a lot of people don't even know where on the map it is! Sad! I'm sure the only thing they can relate to it is probably the actor Van Damme or Brussels sprouts.
  • Saen Saeb Canal

    Saen Saeb Canal
    The Saen Saeb Canal was built by the order of King Rama III during the conflict between Annam about Cambodia to establish a water transport for soldiers and weapons to Cambodia. The construction started in 1837 and was finished three years after.
  • 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.
