  • Market in Udine

    Market in Udine
    This is a market in Udine, Italy. It takes place every week on Monday. It was the first time I went there and wow, I found lots of people and lots of objects to be shot from the hip. Voices everywhere, Chinese everywhere with their "out of market" prices. I found a beggar seated down on the ground and I gave him 20 cents then I took a shot of him. This is a type of life I like to shoot with my Lomo, the simple life of simple people rushing between the stands.

  • Top of the Stairs

    Top of the Stairs
    The top of the stairs directly south of Brigham Young University campus in Provo, UT. If you're in Provo, then it's easy to find BYU campus, just ask anyone. Go to the very south end and there are around 80 steps that lead to the street below. From right here at the top of these stairs are tons of amazing things to shoot! 1) the stairs themselves 2) if you're looking down the stairs and then you turn to your left, there is a great view of the Rocky Mountains 3) to your right is a pretty path that just continues downhill 4&5) straight above you is a guaranteed awesome shot of the sky because the sky in Utah is huge and full of fluffy clouds 6) go down a few steps and take a shot of the street in front-it's pretty in late afternoon with tons of shadows across the street. Any season is good to come: snowy winter, autumn with colorful leaves, sunny days all offer you cool photos. Don't walk around here at night though-it's dangerous and there's nothing to shoot!

    If you come to Nice by plane, you'll be very quickly fascinated by what you see.

  • South Bank

    South Bank
    This is my absolute all-time favorite part of London. Go anytime of the year, anytime of day. During the day you can visit the Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe theatre, wander down the Thames and see all the sights along the river (the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, the National Theatre) and, my favorite of all, the big second hand book stall under a bridge, where you can find all sorts of bargains.
  • Samos

    Samos
    Samos is a small island in Greece (length: about 43 km, width: about 19 km) but nevertheless full of contrasts ... mountains where you can go hiking (but you should be in good condition), beautiful and lonely beaches, cultural highlights like antique ruins, deep forests, picturesque villages, cosy taverns but also lively cities, where you can go shopping or enjoy nightlife. People here are very friendly and open minded. It's almost necessary to rent a car because public transport is non-lined. The streets are a challenge but great for adventurers like me!

  • Shi Lin Night Market

    Shi Lin Night Market
    Beyond a doubt, Shi Lin Night Market is one of the most famous night markets in Taipei, making it a long-time favorite among residents and tourists, locals and foreigners. When you go to Shi Lin Night Market, be sure not to eat beforehand. The food there is simply too delicious to pass up. The prices are low, the servings are generous and the variety seems endless - cold, hot, sweet, sour, salty, spicy, fish, fowl; if it can be eaten, they probably have it. Don't worry about not being able to find what you want to eat. Rather, worry that you might not be able to finish everything you want.
  • World Light Expo 2007

    World Light Expo 2007
    At the corner of the barren highway that is Coastal Road you would see some odd looking shapes peeking over the hastily constructed fences. But by the night fall these shapes come to life in a spectacular display of lomographic glory. Lights of different hues light up Chinese structures made from everyday trinkets like plates, spoons, cd's, what ever you have. Just don't forget to bring films at least at ISO 400. Or a gigantic flash. If it gets too hot, you can also visit the ice light show, where it is minus 18 degrees. Just don't bring your gear inside.
  • LomoShop

    LomoShop
    I went to Hong Kong for a weekend holiday. In Hong Kong you can find a "LOMOGRAPHIC SHOP", it's easy to go, you can go get by the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) and get off in Central Station. During my first time here everything was so cool. I went into the shop, it only has one lady in the staff. She was very nice and friendly so I went there just to buy a book. So good lucky the shop still has 4 of one book. I'll buy one for myself, I think if you are a true LOMO fan you need to have one of these books called "Don't think just shoot" Do you have one already? If you don't, hurry up the LOMO shop in Hong Kong still has got 3 left. GOOD LUCK :) I bought "Don't think, just shoot" book because it has a story about what LOMO means and very good pictures.

  • The Palace of Culture and Science

    The Palace of Culture and Science
    While visiting Warsaw for my first time (I had been here maybe 40 times, but always just passing by, as Poland is the road from Lithuania to the Western Europe), I could have not unnoticed the super huge building... After some chatting with my polish friends, I got some information about this building. Well, this is the Dom or Palac Kultury y Nauky, which stands for "The Palace of Culture and Science". It was the tallest building in the whole Poland, but as my friends told me, there is another new building already taller than our subject of this topic. OK, so here we start - outside the building you can find an interesting sun-clock: you just stand on some place on the ground, and your shadow shows the time (it did not show the exact time, but maybe my friends just did not read the manual, how to use it).
