  • 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.
  • Mount Batulao

    Mount Batulao
    The first time I went to Mount Batulao was to celebrate my birthday on a September weekend with some friends. The picturesque jagged ridge of Mount Batulao looks like it has snow-capped peaks but it is actually just covered with cogon grass and its white plume-like flowers. We set up our tents on the first campsite that we saw that has a tree.
  • Silvretta-Bielerhoehe track

    Silvretta-Bielerhoehe track
    Silvretta-Hochalpenstrasse-Bielerhoehe. The Silvretta-Hochalpenstrasse is one of the most favored and beautiful mountain roads of the Austrian Alps. It connects the Montafon in Vorarlberg with the Paznauntal in Tyrol. The highest pint is Bielerhoehe in 2030 m sea level. There you can find lots of possibilities to spend your time. The simplest one is to sit down in the restaurant Silvrettasee with its amazing view over the Silvretta Lake. A very special one is to make a boat tour on the Silvretta Lake with the motorboat. It is Europe's one and only motorboat traffic in over 2000m sea level.
  • Galerija Tornis

    Galerija Tornis
    I and my friends found this horse accidentally. We were visiting the old town streets of Riga when suddenly we saw a wooden horse. It belongs to Galerija Tonris shop owners and they don't mind if you want to ride on the back of the horse. Inside the shop you can find and buy ancient Baltic and Scandinavian jewelry reproductions and original designs, amber (Baltic States gold), textile, hand-crafted metal-work, pottery, kitchen utensils made of juniper and CDs of Latvian music.
  • Laisves aleja - Freedom avenue

    Laisves aleja - Freedom avenue
    Liberty Avenue is the main street (avenue) in Kaunas. As far as I can count so there are about 20 restaurants and cafes and more than 50 shops. At one end of the avenue there is a church and on the other it turns to Vilnius Street, which goes to the old town.
  • Corregidor

    Corregidor
    For those who remember or are familiar with stories of World War II, the island of Corregidor in the Philippines is a place worth visiting. This tadpole-shaped island, also known as The Rock, because of its rocky landscape, is only 6 kilometres long and about 2.4 kilometers at its widest point.
  • Pigeons of Venice

    Pigeons of Venice
    Okay, okay, so many people call pigeons "rats with wings". They're everywhere, invading our planet by the hoards. They nip at anything edible, poop on your head if you're not careful and basically make a mess. However annoying they are, we all have to admit that they're one of the best lomographic animals around. If you want to mix the photogenic ability of these birds with a stunning backdrop, than there is no better place to go than to Europe's grandest drawing room...the Piazza San Marco in Venice! There are literally hundreds of pigeons constantly fluttering about giving you numerous chances to snap them up with your lens.
  • Fully Booked

    Fully Booked
    Sporting five levels of bibliophile friendly fare, Fully Booked at Bonifacio High Street is every book lover's heaven. Each turn of the page transports you to another realm of fun and excitement. Books of every genre and every generation are scattered for your reading pleasure. Touch up on some techniques with photography books available; though don't let the rules cramp your lomographic style. Just to cater to everyone, a respectable selection of LPs, CDs and DVDs are also available. With all these choices, there is no reason to go Fully Booked.
  • 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.
  • Punta Fuego

    Punta Fuego
    Looking for a place to relax and unwind? Get out of the city and rest somewhere in Batangas, Philippines! Batangas is the HUB for those who want to beat the heat of the sun during summer. Hence, go there during the summer days or when you just feel the need to. Or a Lomo shoot perhaps. I stayed there a couple of times and I always enjoy taking memories with me through my Holga. I give the sceneries and the amenities 5 out of 5. The best shots I had with my Holga were captured at Punta Fuego, Batangas. It is located at the tip most part of Batangas and it is around 3 to 4 hours travel by land from the metro.
  • Indian Street

    Indian Street
    I'm writing about the largest Indian street in Malaysia. It is located at Selangor, Klang, Jalan Tengku Kelana. There are few types of transport you can take to reach there, for example bus, taxi, or train. When taking bus from KL to Klang bus station, you are not too far from that. The Klang train station is only ten minutes walk from Indian street.
  • 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.
  • Old Tobacco Manufacture

    Old Tobacco Manufacture
    Old Tobacco manufacture, 'La Friche' is a huge complex transformed since 1992 into a multicultural concept. 500 m from the train station, it is a space of research, of production and distribution (broadcasting), completely dedicated to the contemporary creation under all these forms: entertainment (theater, dance, exhibitions, street entertainments), visual and digital arts, music, cinema... A ground opened as much for the artists as for the public. the best radio in town 'Radio grenouille' is spreading his program from there and the concert venue 'cabaret aleatoire' welcome the best current DJs and bands.
  • 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.
  • Labyrinth park of Horta

    Labyrinth park of Horta
    If you're in Barcelona, and a little bit tired of the crowd and the cars of the city, if you're looking for a quiet and refreshing place, if you're alone or with a friend (or more...), have a little excursion to the garden and labyrinth of Horta, located north of the city of Barcelona.
  • Aghios Nikolaos

    Aghios Nikolaos
    Need a vacation? Take it, but be careful - if you plan to take a rest at home, you can receive a call from your boss at any moment "please, can you come just for 15 minutes, we need your help". So the best plan is to go somewhere really far away, for example - the Crete Island. And if you really plan to go there for your vacation, choose Aghios Nikolaos town, as it is THE BEST resort town in whole Crete (well, at least you can hear that at your tourist information office). And it really is awesome. First of all, Aghios Nikolaos is a coastal town and the capital of Lasithi province (Crete Island is divided into 4 or 5 prefectures). The most amazing fact is that the town is built on the ruins of the ancient city. People call it Saint Nicholas town because Saint Nicholas is the patron saint of sailors and of all of Greece.
  • Palanga Amber Park Museum

    Palanga Amber Park Museum
    Amber is Lithuania's gold and this museum holds every kind of amber. This time we visited this park early in the morning, so we where alone. It's a nice feeling when you can hear only the birds and how waves are breaking in to the beach. Amber Museum Park is huge - it starts from the main street of Palanga town and goes till the beach.
  • Zypliai Estate

    Zypliai Estate
    Zypliai estate has eleven buildings. Nowadays only three buildings are used. In one building, where 150 years ago they used to keep horses, there is a museum now. In the other building you can find an information centre. They are repairing some of the buildings at the moment, so you can go inside and take a look what is done.
  • Els Quatre Gats Restaurant

    Els Quatre Gats Restaurant
    Els Quatre Gats or 4 Gats (as its commonly known) sparked my interest after having read about it in a wonderful book called "Shadow of the wind" by a Spanish author Carlos Ruiz Zafon. The book was set in Barcelona so when I visited the city for the third time early this year, I made it a point to visit and dine in this famed restaurant. It opened in 1897 and was a popular haunt for Picasso and his mates. He apparently took on his first commissioned work by creating the front cover of the menu. This only peaked my interest more and sure enough, it didn't disappoint.
  • Semana Santa sa Pampanga

    Semana Santa sa Pampanga
    As a young "kapampangan" (the term used for people residing in Pampanga), I take pride in the richness of our culture and heritage.
