  • Khoo Kongsi house

    Khoo Kongsi house
    Khoo is the family name. Kongsi means clan (family) house. This clan house of the Khoo family reminds us of the very first period when the Chinese came to Penang. The Khoo family that built this Kongsi came originally from Sin Kang village in the Hokkien province of China. They actually began migrating overseas in the 16th century. They came to Penang sometime in the late 18th century. By 1835 the numbers was large enough that they formed a clan group and purchased the land and started building the first Kongsi.
  • Santa Terezinha Square

    Santa Terezinha Square
    Santa Terezinha Square is a wonderful place in Taubate City. It's a good spot to have a nice time with your family and friends on weekends. With a beautiful garden, it is the perfect place to meet other people, see folk music shows, eat some of the delicious local food, like "pastel" (fried rissole) and sugar cane juice. There you can see the Santa Terezinha Church too, with the famous stained glass windows, with all Jesus history and gorgeous neo-gothic architecture (perfect Lomo subject). The Square once was the Taubaté's downtown area. It was a long time ago. Now it is a place to exercise your faith, playing with your kids or just walk in a beautiful garden.
  • 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.
  • Sankt Martini Kirche

    Sankt Martini Kirche
    Do you know Wese-renaissance? No? Okay... You surely know Renaissance and Weser is a river in lower Saxony, Germany. Along River Weser were built up lots of houses, churches and castles during the era of renaissance. For example Saint Martins Church in Stadthagen. I like this church! It is very big if you compare it to the size of Stadthagen and you can see it from everywhere when you get closer to Stadthagen. It really dominates the skyline.
  • 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.
  • The Grand Place

    The Grand Place
    Belgium is a tiny country with Brussels as its capital. I find that many people bypass it on their travels...in fact a lot of people don't even know where on the map it is! Sad! I'm sure the only thing they can relate to it is probably the actor Van Damme or Brussels sprouts.
  • Train Station - Eugenio Lefreve

    Train Station - Eugenio Lefreve
    Up to the mountains, up to the sky. Santo Antonio do Pinhal, in the middle of Serra da Mantiqueira, is a beautiful little city. With waterfalls, hiking spots, restaurants, and small hotels, the city is perfect place to stay and joy the altitude (almost 1.300 m) and the nature. But the best place to go with your Lomos is the Train Station, where you can eat, drink hot coffee and feel like you travel back through time, with old architecture and the beautiful gardens. Walk through the train tracks, smell the cold air, visit the Holy Mother Statue, where you can see the entire valley ahead. What a splendid view. Winter is the best time to go there. But even in the summer you can feel the great weather of the mountains. But watch out, the train is coming and you don't want to be in front of it.
  • Praia Grande

    Praia Grande
    Praia Grande is one of the most popular Sao Paulo's beaches on the northern coast of Brazil. When you are in Ubatuba and looking for some crazy action, Praia Grande is the place for you. Waves, music, people, beer and Sun on almost 2 km long sandy beach by the South Atlantic Ocean.
  • Castle of Montjuic And Hill

    Castle of Montjuic And Hill
    The hill and castle of Montjuic is really a place to see in Barcelona and a place where you can see the whole city with a unique point of view. Dominating the south-west part of the city you have the whole panorama over it on one side, and on the other side you see the great industrial installations of the port of Barcelona. Climbing up the hill is also very interesting because of the park of Montjuic and the Olympic installations from de Olympic Games 1992 (and specially the Olympic swimming and diving pool... do you remember the diving sessions where the athletes jump in the air with the background of whole BCN and the Sagarada Familia?).
  • Baguio

    Baguio
    Baguio is the Summer Capital of the Philippines and is gifted with a variety of cultural, historical and scenic attractions that make it an important and interesting destination, favored by local and foreign tourists, whole families on vacation, honeymoon couples and large convention groups. Its year-round cool climate is one major attraction for those wanting to experience and entirely different Philippines. Most visitors come up during the months of March, April and May, especially on the Holy Week.
  • 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.
  • Skyline of Hong Kong from Victoria Peak

    Skyline of Hong Kong from Victoria Peak
    Want to be the King of the World? Forget about Titanic!!! What you need to do is take a 5 minute Peak Tram funicular railway from Central District of Hong Kong, go to The Peak Tower of Victoria Peak where you can see the greatest view of one of the best skylines in the world!
  • Warsaw University Library

    Warsaw University Library
    Earth is our motherland, so we have to be good and not waste it. But today all we hear is pollution, greenhouse effect and so on... What to do? The answer is simple - even today, when technology is going straight forward, we can live without hurting the Fauna and Flora duo.
  • Fun-o-rama

    Fun-o-rama
    Fun-o-rama is like this old azz arcade place right on the Short Sands beach, it is up in Southern Maine, USA. This beach town originally became a vacation spot for the rich and famous or at least upper class during the gilded age, Mark Twain stayed a long weekend once, anyways there are all these old type buildings that used to be grand hotels surrounding Fun-o-rama but this building is just a kid. After World War II Americans started to have the money for vacation, like regular working class Americans... my grandpa went for the first time to Fun-O-rama in 1948, the building was new, Skee-ball was a penny and the whole vacation costed him 65 dollars for the week. The rich left when the regular working man came and so now it s a very wacky mix.
  • Old South Station

    Old South Station
    It's not easy to find abandoned places in Nice! The ancient railway station of "Chemins de fer de Provence" is one of them. Built in a neoclassical style in 1892 by the architect Prosper Bobin, it is not used anymore since 1992 (a new terminus was built 6 blocks from the ancient one).
  • Sagrada Familia in night

    Sagrada Familia in night
    The well-known Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is perhaps one of the last great "century's constructions" of a cathedral, and like in the middle-ages the construction lasts for over then a century now (since 1882!!) and it's still not finished... If you want the whole story about the Sagrada, have a look at the official website (link below) but if you're in Barcelona, you must go visit the place, and the best moment for me is during the night! Until midnight, the cathedral lights are on, and the place takes a different face from the day, much more impressive, the shadows and colours of the light gives you the impression of a living beast in the middle of the city: it's alive!! Turn around the whole building and it will change its face, staring at you at every moment with a different face! :) It's a fascinating experience to visit this huge building at night, very different from the day (but it's very impressing at daylight too!) and gives you the opportunity to make cool pictures, of course!
  • Views from Tibidabo

    Views from Tibidabo
    Tibidabo is one of the highest hills surrounding the city of Barcelona (512 m) and is still very close to it to have one of the greatest views over the whole city. There is also a little attraction park, but more meant for children than to adults. You have also the great church of "Sagrat Chor" dominating the hill and not far from there the Colserrola Tower and the different tv and radio networks antennas.
  • Massena

    Massena
    The area of Massena is the main center of new Nice. The new parts of the city, which developed in the beginning of the 20th century started from there, just next to the old historical city, both were separated only by the river called Paillon.
  • Lucca

    Lucca
    When you'll be tired of Firenze, Sienna, and San Giminiano in Tuscany, pay a visit to Lucca! Lucca is situated in the heart of Tuscany, between Pisa (20 Km) and Florence (72 Km), and very close to sea and to mountains.
