  • Vatican Museums

    Vatican Museums
    I've never been a huge fan of museums because frankly while traveling, I'd rather see the beautiful cityscape and enjoy mingling with the locals while sampling the country's speciality dishes however the Vatican museums are definitely an exception.
  • Gondola

    Gondola
    I know its ultra touristy but a trip to Venice isn't complete without a gondola ride. There are millions of things to shoot along the way and you definitely get a different perspective of Venice actually being on the water.
  • Kaunas Days Festival

    Kaunas Days Festival
    Kaunas - is the second largest city in Lithuania, which was even the capital of Lithuania lots of years ago. Today this is a city, known for its basketball club "Žalgiris", basketball player Arvydas Sabonis and so on. So it is so natural, that the city with such history has got its own festival, which is called the "Kaunas' Days" festival (sometimes it is called only the "Day", not "Days").
  • Mingė village

    Mingė village
    Ok, this story is very funny. First of all, I am going to talk about a little village in south western part of Lithuania, near the Minija river, which flows through the Klaipeda town (third town in Lithuania, near the Baltic Sea). The village is really small, there are about 30 houses and the same amount of native families, living there... so where is the whole fun? First of all, there are no streets in this village.
  • Lesvos

    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.
  • Victorian Era Buildings

    Victorian Era Buildings
    Troy, New York is 15 minutes north of Albany, the capital of New York State. During the mid-19th and early 20th centuries, Troy was one of the most prosperous cities in the United States due mainly to the iron works and textile factories that lined the riverfront.
  • Sydney

    Sydney
    So if you ask me what is the best city on Earth to take Lomo pictures I'll have to say Sydney (AU). Don't know why no one here wrote about Sydney yet. But ok, I'll be the first one. ...
  • Japaratinga Beach

    Japaratinga Beach
    Japaratinga is one of the most beautiful beaches on the northeast coast of Brazil. If you want to spend some time with friends in peace, this is the place. Streams, reefs, really white sand and an amazing sea just waiting for you to take your Lomo pics. It's almost a wild beach, so it will be only you and your friends and lots of coconuts. Enjoy!s
  • Callot frescos

    Callot frescos
    When Remy Callot died in 2001, his house was intended for destruction to build a traffic circle. But Remy Callot had spent his retirement to decorate his garden's walls with mosaic. So, in 2006, "the house of the fool" as it was called, was finally destroyed but walls were preserved and now, instead of a roundabout, it is question to build a museum of Art Brut. I truly hope it will!
  • Hong Kong on Fuji Velvia

    Hong Kong on Fuji Velvia
    The day before yesterday I had lunch in Tsim Sha Tsui, wonderful lamb curry, chicken karahi and chappatis, then (energy boosted) walked to the star ferry, sat on the waves, took a rusty old tram to western market, stood and walked admiring Sheung Wan and all the small alleys with dried fish stalls, barbers, fruit and vegetables, meat laid out in fresh reds, spices and nuts in huge baskets... and I emptied my roll of film, loaded another, walked high up to the mid levels, then down through Soho...sat for an hour at pacific coffee drinking a reasonable latte and reading my Elliott Smith book.
  • Kauno marios – Kaunas Lagoon

    Kauno marios – Kaunas Lagoon
    Kauno marios (English: Kaunas Lagoon) is the largest Lithuanian artificial lake created in 1959 on Neman River near Kaunas and Rumšiškės. It covers territory of 63.5 km² which is approximately 0.1% of the total territory of Lithuania. The greatest width of the lagoon is 3.3 km and the greatest depth is 22 m. In preparation of the dam opening 721 farms and villages were moved to different places. The entire Rumšiškės town was moved and now is an open air museum of traditional architecture. But nowadays it's a great place where you can take your Lomo camera and with some friends go for a swim. As you can see on the photos we took some beer and meat too. By the way, this place is terrific for the frogeye lovers! Usually during the summer Kaunas lagoon water is great. The last but not the least - don't forget to take something to fight with mosquitoes which are trying to kill you in the evening.
  • Cherbourg

    Cherbourg
    Cherbourg is a harbor in Manche a French region. It's my city I live here for ten years now and it's very pleasant. I will not tell the contrary probably because of my pride! But you've got the sea, the country, it can be very hot in summer and it snows sometimes (in fact 3 times in 10 years!). The main thing to see is la Cité de la Mer. It is a museum-aquarium- restaurant, seagulls, boats, and numerous terraces of nice cafés especially in a sunny and very windy day when parasols threaten to kill you. No, no, no I'm not a good patriot don't trust my words.
  • Vasco da Gama Bridge

    Vasco da Gama Bridge
    Ever since I moved to Lisbon I've been fascinated by the Vasco da Gama Bridge. I have lost track of how many pictures I have taken of it: from every angle, in every light, in the morning, in the afternoon... The bridge is 17.2 km long and was built as an alternative route to the 25 de Abril Bridge, frequently congested with traffic jams especially during the rush-hour periods and on sunny weekends.

  • The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Monastery

    The Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Monastery
    Yes, of course - you will be asking why the hell did I shoot those nice flowers instead of the Church and monastery... You would be right, but I will tell you something, that will be useful if you will go there. Do not go there late in the evenings, cause the monks close the doors of the monastery, so you have to go round it and take the pictures only of the buildings. But, that's not bad, as I did find one of the back doors open, and while nobody did see me, I did one last shot for my film (damn, I could have taken more films...). So you can check the inside of it.
  • Dangerous Quicksands in Arnside

    Dangerous Quicksands in Arnside
    Arnside is a village on the River Kent estuary at the upstream end of Morecambe Bay. The bay is an expanse of dangerous shifting quick-sands filled twice daily by a rapidly moving tidal bore. It's a dangerous place for the unwary and does occasionally claim lives, none so tragic as the internationally reported loss of 23 Chinese cockle pickers in 2004 "http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4238209.stm":http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4238209.stm

  • Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

    Guggenheim Museum Bilbao
    The fish out of the sea. As you reach the Bilbao Guggenheim, your heart goes faster and you get a shiver down your spine. You are just in front of the biggest fish out of the sea! The building was finished 10 years ago, designed by Frank O. Gehry. People from Bilbao, at first, felt strange with its presence, but easily get used to it.

  • Queen's Island

    Queen's Island
    Queen's Island on the River Lagan is home to the Harland and Wolff ship-yards, birthplace of the Titanic, probably Belfast's most famous export. The Belfast shipbuilding industry can be dated back to the mid-1600s, and the banks of the Lagan became devoted to the H+W shipyards in the late eighteenth century. From Queen's Island came some of the most famous ships in modern history, such as the Olympic and the Britannia. Despite its sticky end, the Titanic is still celebrated as one of the most notable triumphs of modern industry, and its history is celebrated each year during the Belfast "Titanic Festival".
