    A secret area in London with excellent views for history lovers. Wapping is an area in east London, part of the former Docklands, about which lots of Londoners don't even know. And the ones who know, appreciate it a lot.

    Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific

    Bora Bora...a name which evokes a place that is already close to being considered as "paradise". I actually had the chance to go there for a week; sailing in one of the world's most beautiful lagoons, enjoying the marvelous views, and of course, taking lots of pictures.

    Berlin For a Night Through Indonesian Eyes

    The first impression when i arrived in Berlin was "WOW what a great great train station", there's nothing like this in my home country. It's quite different than the 2 cities before I got to Berlin (Erfurt and Frankfurt), maybe because all of the skyscrapers in downtown. This is the third city in my summer school trip around Europe, in Deutchland or we can called it Germany.

    Lomo Everywhere in London

    After taking it easy on a Saturday night, I decided to get on my bike early on a Sunday morning and see London as i never have before, desolate and peaceful. Loaded with my little Holga 135bc and a few rolls of film, I rode around London's quiet streets and shot away.

    If you have ever waited for an owl to deliver your invitation to spend 7 years of education in Hogwarts, if you have always wanted to feel what it's like to take a subject called Potions, if you have always wanted to take a sip of that oh so famous Butterbeer, or if you are simply a Harry Potter fan, you have to go straight into the heart of Orlando. Inside the Islands of Adventure in Universal Studios, you will find the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the Lomo Location of your dreams.

    Hello analogue freaks from Malaysia! Did you go anywhere this summer? Did you pay a visit to the wonderful beach near the East Coast yet? What about some heritage places at Malacca?

    Varanasi, India - Between Life and Death at the Bathing Ghats

    Sin and luck, death, birth and reincarnation - all combined in one of the most fascinating, oldest and holiest cities of India. Hindu pilgrims gather from all over the country to wash themselves free of all sin and guilt at the shores of the river Ganges. In addition to that, an old ritual attracts thousands of pilgrims: they seek to cremate their relatives at the burning ghats of the river.

    Magic Doubtful Sound: Is this Norway or New Zealand?

    Exploring the beauty of a Fjord...I thought that this was only possible in Norway but in fact, you can explore the surprising Fjordland in southwestern New Zealand! We went to the Doubtful Sound and despite it's name, there's no doubt that it's one of the most amazing places I've ever seen.

    Paris Revisited

    I refuse to submit to the idea that Paris is a cliché. I marvel at the same picture of the Eiffel tower everybody takes from the same exact spot. I love to remember walking through modern streets and suddenly encountering a block full of very old buildings or a very old church.

    Explore Little Tibet in Kathmandu, Nepal

    From dawn 'til dusk, hundreds of monks as well as Nepalese and Tibetans of every age walk around a 40m high stupa called Boudha or Bodhnath. They pray their mantra by murmuring and twirling the prayer wheels over and over, seeking for accumulated wisdom and merit (good karma) as well as purified negativity (bad karma).

    The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

    I wish more than almost anything that Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was real! At least for a day it was! Islands of Adventure at Universal Studios in Orlando, FL, oh thank you for at least letting me pretend. For all you fans of Harry Potter, make sure to schedule a visit here - and bring your film cameras!

    Sunsets in Boracay are simply amazing! Each shot you take, regardless of what camera you use, is unique and breathtaking. This is my wonderful experience capturing Boracay sunsets and seeing them through plastic lenses.

    Moeraki Boulders: Are These Alien Eggs?

    The Moeraki Boulders are one of the strangest geological stone formations I ever saw. It looks almost like some aliens landed on a beach and left behind some of their eggs to prepare for a future invasion of the earth. Is this the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"???

    The Beaches of the Outer Hebrides

    "Don't like the weather? Wait twenty minutes." - Scottish saying. I thought the bad weather would never end and I'd never get to see the beach on Benbecula that I'd dreamt about for weeks. Check out the beaches of the outer Hebrides!

    A Day with the Dinosaurs

    A small trip south of the river Thames can take you many places but back in time is not one you would expect. Here in Crystal Palace Park, you will find you have stepped back in time to a land of Dinosaurs or at least a Victorian view of them.
