  • 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.
  • Park Stanley

    Park Stanley
    One of Vancouver's prize attractions and loved by all who visit and live in the city, is Stanly Park. This is the city's largest green space and located to the west of Downtown Vancouver. Stanly Park has so much to offer. For the most part it is surrounded by the sea and meandering along the water's edge is the seawall where walkers, joggers, bikers and roller-bladders can complete a ca. 10km peripheral circuit of the park. However, you can also take advantage of the free Stanely Park shuttle service that starts mid-June and runs daily until the end of September from 10:00 am until 6:30 pm.
  • Washington D.C. Zoo

    Washington D.C. Zoo
    Washington DC can be a fantastic vacation getaway spot. Watch out because there are a lot of people that think the exact same thing. I found that when you get away from the mall and take a nice stroll through the city there are many nice things to point your camera at. The city is very clean (at least parts are) and there are a ton of clubs and things to do that don't involve US history, if one is trying to get away from all that. Of course all the stuff that is part of the mall and US history is really nice too.
  • Portofino

    Portofino
    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.
  • 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.
  • Parc du Cinquantenaire

    Parc du Cinquantenaire
    This park is one of my favourite in Brussels because there is almost always something going on. Be it teens cutting class and smoking fags behind the bushes, lovers in tender embrace on the benches, dogs catching frisbees, mothers with their babies in prams, women stripping to bare basics sunbathing on the lawns, old ladies gossiping on the quiet corners of the park, tourists by the busloads photographing the massive Arc de Triomphe and visiting the museums that surround (namely the museums of Art and History, Aviation, the Army and Military
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Zoo Hundshaupten

    Zoo Hundshaupten
    The Zoo Hundshaupten is a neat little park located in the heart of Franconian Swiss near Nuremberg, Germany. It is embedded in a small valley where you can walk up and down and all around to see the typical animals which belong to the nature surrounding you.
  • Donkey Festival

    Donkey Festival
    This event is unique in South of France, a special day to discover all kinds of donkeys in a pretty small town between Nice and Digne on the Napoleon Road. This is about two hours from Nice in a small town built on the rocks. Situated on the pre-Alpes, you can still discover truly sympathetic and kind people far from the French Riviera atmosphere. All the habitants of Escragnolles and the communes around are participating to this event.
  • Paris

    Paris
    As much as I love a beach holiday, my favorite type of vacation is a city
  • Council of Europe

    Council of Europe
    Now this is an interesting place. The council of Europe is important, but nobody really knows what it is about. It invented the blue European flag with golden stars, but the European Union made it big. In the council are all European countries involved. Only Belarussia is out of the game. But more exciting than the political haze is the funky interior of the building made in the seventies.
  • Monaco Grand Prix Race

    Monaco Grand Prix Race
    All you Formula1 fans, now listen up! 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.
  • Medieval village of Sainte Agnes

    Medieval village of Sainte Agnes
    This little village is a rare photographic, historic and romantic spot on the Cote d'Azur. Sainte Agnes has the official title of the "highest coastal village of Europe"!! Indeed, it's only 3 km far from the sea and 800m high, so you got a great point of view about the whole coast of Menton (also very nice little old town...) and the beginning of Italy, and the pre-alps mountains (Mercantour parc, great place too...) behind you. An old castle (mostly in ruins) is on the top of the mountain and was built at the beginning of the 14th century with the village just below. It was a main place to control the coast and to see quickly the enemies approaching from all around. Between 1932 and 1938 a military base of the "ligne Maginot" was built inside the mountain (it was part of the defensive line between France and Germany and Italy) with big artillery towards the sea and Italy!! Nowadays it's empty and you can visit it without problems, very interesting :)
  • Bolinao

    Bolinao
    Bolinao is on the north eastern portion of the Philippines' biggest island Luzon. A 6 hour bus ride takes one to this beach paradise which thank goodness has not yet been fully discovered by humanity though it seems to be on the verge. I love that it has generally remained quiet and clean. Hopefully it will never be turned into a beach that is invaded by commercialization.
  • Coffee Bar - Kavos Baras

    Coffee Bar - Kavos Baras
    Coffee Bar is a cafe for everyone who likes high quality coffee. There are some reasons why you should choose this bar: first of all it starts to work from 7 am in the morning, so this is a place where you can find me after the sunrise and before first lecture during winter seasons (and tell me, who doesn't like to take some photos of the sunrise?). Secondly, Coffee Bar bakes its own confectionery. You really need to try éclairs, "cause they're so tasty.
  • Wendenstrasse Fest

    Wendenstrasse Fest
    It's a legend. And the legend is where I live - the Wendenstrassen-Fest!
  • Tanjung Inn Villa

    Tanjung Inn Villa
    This place is the place where you have to stay if coming to this side
  • Lesvos

    Lesvos
    Lesvos is the 3rd biggest island of Greece and located in the Aegean Sea very near to Turkey (approx. 16 km). We went to Lesvos on a 12-hour-ferry trip from Piraeus and arrived at the island's capital Mytilini on the eastern coast.
  • Trail Dust Town

    Trail Dust Town
    Here are few photos from Trail Dust Town in Tucson Arizona. A cheesy little relic of the old west. Of course they have a little troth for gold panning, an old photo studio (the kind where you dress up and hold fake guns and they print them sepia toned), gift shops, a live stunt show, and an arcade. As fun as this all is, a majority of the time I was pointing my Lubitel around with a bit of 70mm magic inside. You be the judge of the results. Take the afternoon, evening or what ever and have a hootin and hollerin good time. They have two restaurants there that aren't bad and plenty to see and do. I wouldn't plan on a full day as it's pretty small and there is a lot of other things to see and do in Tucson.
