  • Caza Vizantina

    Caza Vizantina
    Much of the pomp and grandeur that was the Pearl of the Orient was carpet-bombed to bloody rubble during the Second World War. But whatever pitiful remains escaped the terror of Manila's dark chapter suffers a sadder fate: the slow death of indifference and neglect. Such is the case of a magnificent house in San Nicolas.....

  • Gateshead Trinity Square Multi-Storey Car Park

    Gateshead Trinity Square Multi-Storey Car Park
    Designed in 1962 in the then cutting-edge Brutalist style, by the time it opened in 1969 the style was no longer fashionable. Raw concrete and angled edges towered above Gateshead, easy to spot from most points in Newcastle across the Tyne. It was featured heavily in the 1970 film 'Get Carter', by which point it was already in decline.
  • Architecture in Stuttgart: Weißenhofsiedlung

    Architecture in Stuttgart: Weißenhofsiedlung
    Thrills up and down my spine. This was what I experimented when I was walking across the streets of Weißenhofsiedlung in Stuttgart. Directed by Mies van der Rohe, 17 architects created a neighborhood in 1927 just to show what the “New Architecture” would be. There you can see from a detached house to an apartment block.

  • Lucbuan Cemetery (Cuyo, Palawan)

    Lucbuan Cemetery (Cuyo, Palawan)
    I was amazed when I saw this place - a small cemetery just above the beach front. A very solemn and quiet place, ideal place to, well, talk to dead relatives. Some of the crosses are old and have the designs of the late 18th century, those who were buried here probably were rich Spanish descendants who stayed after the Philippines regained its freedom from Spain early 1900s. Other crosses are makeshift from woods and lumber, probably owned by the locals.

For over a hundred years this grandfather of towers squats on the edge of Jalan Selat next to Jalan Pasar.

    Splendid Chinese Temple (Nontaburi)

  • Holocaust Memorial (Berlin)

    Holocaust Memorial (Berlin)
    A 19.000 square meter huge site covered with 2.711 cement blocks, or also called "stelae". All of the stelae have the same length of 2,38m, same width of 0,95m and vary in the height from 0,2m to 4,8m. Due to the wavy ground the whole site gets a shape of a huge wave.

  • Melaten (Cologne)

    Melaten (Cologne)
    Cemeteries make nice Lomographic motives. This is a huge public cemetery in Cologne. Usually cemeteries are places where you don't take a stroll. It's a place to find peace and to come to rest (in both senses of the word). But Melaten is a bit different. It is constructed like a park. There is a lot of green, trees, meadows, bushes and the graves and gravestones adapt somehow into the landscape. What is so special about this cemetery are its magnificent and elaborate gravestones decorated with larger than life angels and other figures - the Death for example.
