  • Cappuccino

    Cappuccino
    There is absolutely nothing that can beat an authentic Italian cappuccino. I've always been a big fan of coffee and though many parts of the world are known for their different coffee varieties and beans...the cappuccino has always been a favourite of mine (and incidentally I discovered the cappuccino actually originated from Vienna!). When in Italy, it doesn't matter where you go, be it a fancy 100-year-old cafe or the little corner snack bar with two tables out front, the cappuccinos they serve are always top-knotch. I must've drunk about 42 cups in my 2 week stay and not once did it disappoint.
  • 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.
  • Holiday Resort in San Jhih

    Holiday Resort in San Jhih
    It is an abandoned holiday resort in San Jhih, a mall town on the north coast of Taiwan. It has been abandoned for more then 20 years. People call it "UFO house". The man who supposedly designed the flying saucer room is an architect from Finland Matti Suuronen. He designed the flying saucer shape in 1968 (UFO). The glass fiber system house calls "Futuro". Bit later the same year, the production cost of Futuro became more expensive, as well as producer Polykem had not consummated the plan to develop Futuro, and sold the design idea right to many countries carelessly, therefore you can see Futuro in so many places around the world.
  • Theresienstadt

    Theresienstadt
    On November 24, 1941, the Germans established a Jewish ghetto in the fortress town of Terezin (near Prague), Czech Republic. Known by its German name, Theresienstadt, until its liberation on May 8, 1945, it functioned as a ghetto and transit camp on the route to Auschwitz. Most of those imprisoned in Theresienstadt were German, Czech, Dutch, and Danish Jews; elderly and prominent Jews and Jewish veterans of World War I were also sent there.
  • Tashkent

    Tashkent
    Uzbekistan is mainly known, for its ancient cities on the old silk road such as Bukhara and Samarkand. Despite the beauty of these towns Tashkent became the capital of the Uzbek SSR in 1930. The great history of Tashkent is not really visible. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that Ghengis Khan in 1219 and the Russians in 1865 destroyed it big time. Still, there remained some major and the only well preserved mosques of the areas.
  • Cemitério do Convento Santa Clara

    Cemitério do Convento Santa Clara
    Franciscanos fundaram o Convento Santa Clara em 1673 e seu cemitério fica do lado direto do prédio principal. Como todo cemitério é um lugar muito calmo e sereno, onde o povo de Taubaté relembra seus entes queridos. É, talvez, o mais antigo da cidade ainda em funcionamento.
  • Metro Palais Royal 'Kiosque des Noctambules'

    Metro Palais Royal 'Kiosque des Noctambules'
    This unique new metro entrance situated on the square Colette was built and inaugurated in 2000 for the centenary of the Paris subway. It was realesed and supervised by the artist Jean-Michel Othoniel in a very controversial style.
  • La Reserve

    La Reserve
    Nice is well known for the beaches along the seafront. During the summer they're crowded with so many tourists that spending an afternoon at the beach is not so nice...BUT, if you know some special places that only people living in Nice are going to, you can spend great time on the beach without the tourist crowd :). One of these places (the people of Nice wouldn't be very happy if they know that I am revealing this nice place...;) is the beach called "La Reserve" near the port of Nice. Go to the port, following the coastal road to Villefranche and directly after the port you'll arrive on the Boulevard Franck Pilatte, and follow the road until the restaurant called "La Reserve".
  • Downtown Area

    Downtown Area
    I visited my sister out in Washington DC for a week a while back and grew weary of the mall and all of the tourism that I'd been dealing with for the first few days. I decided to take my camera out for a stroll threw the city. No cabs, trains, metros, just feet.
  • Zemaitijos National Park

    Zemaitijos National Park
    After sometime everyone of us discovers something very unbelievably interesting even there, where you think you know everything. This is what happened to me, when I planned to visit Zemaitijos National Park in the north part of Lithuania. Zemaitija is one of the lands (Lithuania is divided to 4 main zones), so it is very simple to name a national park with it's land's name, right? What can you expect there? First of all, a very beautiful lake, which is not so deep near the shore, I mean you can walk hundred of meters while you reach the 1.5 m depth zone.

    history Kaunas Oval Office Park
    If you want to visit only the park just like me so you can come when ever you want, but if you want to enter the museum, come on Wednesday, because you won't need to pay for the ticket (it's the day when everyone can visit museum for free). Inside the museum you can find interesting stuff about Lithuania's history.
  • Dalida Café

    Dalida Café
    Dalida café is XiMenDing's latest hippest addition to the icing of western Taipei. Dalida takes its name from a French diva, who makes regular appearances on the sound system of this Euro-style cafe. Taking advantage of its location on the square in front of the Red Theater, Dalida expands outwards with an outdoor patio and a terrace on the second floor.
  • Bauhaus

    Bauhaus
    Dessau is a small city 100 km south of Berlin. It is pilgrimage town for all those architecture addicts (that in some cases coincide with lomo addicts, or lomographers).
  • 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.
  • Flying boat

    Flying boat
    Starting from the Eiffel tower, The Pont Neuf, Notre Dame or Le Louvre, day and night you can have a one hour trip to see Paris from a original point of view. The 'Bateau mouche' (fly boat), is a boat with large windows and big terrace on top of it. You can walk on the sides of the ship to shoot great pictures. A voice is telling you the stories of the monuments in 13 languages, sometimes with music. Some boats have a night restaurant and allow you a romantic longer journey. Also, the river 'La Seine' cross Paris by the middle and has many beautiful bridges. If you go to Paris don't miss this experience, your Lomo cameras will love it! 11 Euros for adults and 6 euros for the children.
  • 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.
  • Leuven

    Leuven
    Although it isn't the most famous city in Belgium and one could claim it is fairly small, I think Leuven is one of the greatest cities this country has to offer. Come during the day time and look at historical buildings, housing projects from the sixties, one of the prisons (we have two of them, both 19th century), have a drink on one of the many squares or BYO in one of the parks.
  • Haunted Love Hotel

    Haunted Love Hotel
    Nestled in the drinking districts or on the outskirts of every city in Japan are the greatest hotels on Earth - Love Hotels. Cheaper than a business hotel and equipped with such amenities as karaoke machines, Play Station, disco balls, slot machines, sex toy vending machines (and one hotel in Nagano has a bed that will glide 15 feet back and forth across the mirrored room) they are a great places to spend an afternoon or a night.
  • Cable Cars

    Cable Cars
    Visiting Singapore is never complete without taking the cable car ride. Ride it from its two stations at Sentosa Island "www.sentosa.sg":www.sentosa.sg or from Mount Faber Jewel Box station "http:// www.mountfaber.com.sg/main-cablecar.htm":http:// www.mountfaber.com.sg/main-cablecar.htm The cable car provides a fantastic view of Singapore - the sweeping landscapes, the harbor, it's busy ports, cityscapes, Sentosa island - all very pretty and lomographic!
  • Lomo Days Festival

    Lomo Days Festival
    Lomo Days Festival in Vilnius, Lithuania was organized and curated by me, Neja aka Julia Svetlova, in Lithuanian capital Vilnius for the 1st time in May 2006. During 4 days Vilnius inhabitants could experience many Lomographic activities: we did Lomo Fish Day party in collaboration with top famous DJ crew One Ear Stereo at Zalia Papuga bar. Party involved music, dancing, massive Fisheye Curtains made out of images created with fisheye camera all around the Globe, and the night's highlight- LOMO LAB. 15 Colorsplash and Fisheye cameras were given away to people along with 2 rolls of film per each person.
