  • Intramuros

    Intramuros
    Formerly the infamous prison for rebels and dissidents during the old times, the walled city of Intramuros, the "city within a city", has withstood the test of time and still remains majestic as ever. Some of its splendor is lost due to urbanization not to mention the series of bombings experienced during the Second World War but it still retains its old worldly charm. Some of the moats and gates of old still stand while one of the many torture chambers has been converted to a coffee shop. How's that for ingenuity? For a tourist, a visit to Manila would be incomplete without at least a visit to the walled city. It is located near the Pasig River and most jeeps going to Quiapo will pass by there.
  • University of the Philippines

    University of the Philippines
    Already nearing its 100th year, the University of the Philippines still holds the accolade of being the premier university of the country. Symbolized by the Oblation, UP is characterized by its freedom for its students, which are notoriously labelled as activists and radicals because of the freedom given.
  • Lyon Opera House

    Lyon Opera House
    The Opera House in Lyon is really a great architectural building from the end of the 20th century. The original opera house was built 1831 in a very classical style, but as time went by the building was in a bad state at the end of the 1980's and needed to be rebuilt. The famous French architect Jean Nouvel proposed a very revolutionary construction of the Opera house within the old walls of the building, to conserve the historical heritage of the place. The inside of the Opera was totally rebuilt, and the most important work was around the rooftop of the building: the old classical glass & iron construction of the 19th century couldn't be restored, and there was Jean Nouvel's most spectacular idea: a brand new rooftop, still constructed with darkened glass for the light but with an ultra modern design of an half-circle over the old walls! The project provoked a very big debate among the citizens of Lyon (like every revolutionary construction...), some of them adored this new roof, other hated it and said it was a scandal to make of the opera house such an ugly building.... Finally the project was accepted and was inaugurated 1993.
  • T Lor Su waterfall

    T Lor Su waterfall
    You might wonder where might be the 6th of the most beautiful water-falls of the world. This is it. "T Lor Su" The amazing water-fall, no question about it. It's kind of tough to go up there from Bangkok. You need to take a bus from BKK to Tak and form Tak to "Umpang" and about 30 more kilo-meters to the T Lor Su.
  • 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.

There are lots of stalls/vendors with gadgets, clothing, flowers, Korean stationary (my favorite is Afro Ken), cell phones & accessories, traditional Asian products, lucky bamboo... and on... and on...

  • Narita

    Narita
    The place that you must see when landing in Japan is not the hi-tech city of Hello Kitty, but instead the view of rice fields and the pace is slow. The location you should see is Narita, Japan. Narita city is located next to Tokyo's International Airport and is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the big smoke. Narita is packed with temples and tradition. Sushi restaurants are plentiful and the locals are friendly.
  • Phnom Penh

    Phnom Penh
    I was fascinated by this city with temples and houses in Indochina style. It's a little pearl in Southeast Asia and its tragic recent past seems to undermine, but not destroy its beauty and life. You can be attacked by tuk tuk drivers and people but you can also see young Buddhist monk with in their orange, yellow and brown color clothing walking in silence. I believe it was the hottest time of the year, and walking around, even for just 5 mins, in 40C heat is a tough task! Even though parts of the city were messy a lot of it was beautiful, including areas by the lake and by the river. The people were great too!
  • Chatuchak Weekend Market

    Chatuchak Weekend Market
    Though there are many markets throughout Bangkok, Chatuchak Weekend Market is still pretty much the undisputed king of them all. Chatuchak is pronounced as Jatujak and simply known by the local people as JJ.

It covers over 35 acres and contains more than 10,000 stalls selling practically everything under the sun. Such as the smallest nails, to foods, trendy fashions, antiques intricate wooden carvings, masks from far-off lands, adorable fluffy dogs, colorful fish of every hue and singing birds.

    Vytautas – the Great War Museum Park
    You can find Vytauto Didžiojo karo muziejus (English: Vytautas the Great War Museum) in the Kaunas center. It was opened in 1936 and named after the Grand Duke of Lithuania, Vytautas. Inside of the museum you can find many interesting things like historical weapons and a thing that I am proud of - Lituanica plane, on which Steponas Darius and Stasys Girėnas had crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1933.

  • Carnival In The Mountains

    Carnival In The Mountains
    Everyone on this planet know the Brazilian carnivals. Everyone have heard about the Rio de Janeiro with that stuff like "the greatest show on Earth", and other bla bla bla. Well, guys, you need to know the Brazilian carnival like I know: diving into the countryside and discovering the real experience on these old and traditional streets in these traditional little Brazilian cities.
  • Cruise Ship

    Cruise Ship
    The views from a cruise ship are just amazing, so why not capture it with a Fisheye? The ship is enormous, so to capture that, I took pictures of the "tail" or the red exhaust pipes from the top deck. The red glass is actually the ceiling of the atrium below, so don't forget to take a shot from inside the ship looking out (that's the shot that looks like I used a red filter but it's actually the sun shinning through the red glass that made this effect.)
  • Praia da Lagoinha do Leste

    Praia da Lagoinha do Leste
    This beach is located on the south east side of the Island of Florianopolis. There is no road that you can take to the beach, and depending where you start it is a half mile to a mile walk to get there. You can take a little ferry boat from one of the closer more accessible beaches if that is your fancy as well.
  • Gardens of Cimiez

    Gardens of Cimiez
    The gardens of Cimiez, near of the Monastery (see other location) is a beautiful place for relaxing in a green and quiet space in the city. The main part of this garden is an olive grove where you can rest under the shadow of a giant and very old olive-tree, and take a little sunbath and pictures too! The place is well known for the people of Nice, and on week-ends you'll see all families coming with their picnic and the children are playing football, frisbee, etc.... The second part of the garden is more a "rose grove" where you can admire the great flowers the monks are cultivating since the XVIth century and admire also the great view over the whole east-side of the city of Nice. The point of view from this hill over the city is just great, and that is why the Romans founded their first city on this hill (named "Cemenellum") in the 4th century.... If you're in Nice during the summer, don't miss the Nice Jazz Festival taking place in the Olive grove of Cimiez, with great musicians in a beautiful place!

  • Songzanlin Monastery

    Songzanlin Monastery
    Located in the north-western part of Yunnan Province, Shangri-La, formerly known as Zhongdian, is actually an ugly town. I refuse to call it Shangri-La after I visited it.
  • Market of La Libé

    Market of La Libé
    It's the old market of the "Place de la Libération" named after the allied Victory in World War II and the liberation of the city of Nice in 1944. Since then, the place changed name into "Place Charles de Gaulle" but all the people still name it "la Libération", or best, "la Libé". The market takes place every day of the year, whatever the weather is. You can find all kinds of fruits and vegetables, great quality of fish, spices, flowers and very good Olive oil too... The whole market is very mixed in a very popular mood.

  • Brentford

    Brentford
    Head west out of London and you get to Brentford - not a very glamorous sounding location, you might think. Until you realize that you're just step away from the Thames River, with the famous world heritage site Kew Gardens over the river, and with Water mans Park and its beautiful metal sculptures and the string of Thames houseboats at your feet.
