    Twosday Tuesday: Eyes to the Sky

    Here at Lomography, we always like looking at the creative and random photos submitted by our community members. And, amusingly, we find that there are a lot of snapshots that bear a striking resemblance to one another – be it in the way they were composed or in idea – even though they were taken in different parts of the globe!

    Exploring Malacca: A State Rich of Historical Background in Malaysia

    If you travelling to Malaysia, I most recommend Malacca. This is because it is a great to visit, with its rich historical and cultural background from previous Portuguese, Dutch and British rule. The centre of city was listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in year 2008.

    Kodak 400TX: Bundles of Atmosphere with My First B&W Roll Ever!

    This was the first ever roll of black and white film that I had used. I was a bit worried about not being able to achieve the results I've seen with black and white films by other people. But, to my surprise, I was definitely happy with the results: moody, dramatic, and a little creepy. Everything one could ask for.

    The Smith Tower: The Cage at the Top of Seattle

    The Smith Tower in Seattle hasn't been able to claim the title of "tallest skyscraper on the west coast" for 50 years, but this 38-storey neoclassical office tower is still worth a visit. Since the first 34 floors are private offices, and the top three floors are for private residence, your visit will include the lobby, the elevator, and The Chinese Room on the 35th floor.

    My Favorite Monument in Lisbon

    Someone asked me once which was my favorite monument in Lisbon. It is probably the city's aqueduct. I like that it distributes an essential element for life and its beautiful construction makes me burn film after film.

    Marvellous Melbourne in Black and White

    Melbourne, my home city, is a mesmerising collection of landmarks and cityscapes. Thanks to the gold rush of the 1880s, much of inner Melbourne's architecture has a distinct Victorian character. Let me give you a snapshot of Melbourne's character through the wonderful Ilford chromogenic B&W.

    Central Tejo: Electricity Museum

    Central Tejo is not only a beautiful building by the river, but also a fun museum to visit in Lisbon. It used to be a thermoelectric plant built between 1908 and 1951 and is located near the river Tejo, in Lisbon's touristic neighborhood, Belém. This emblematic brick building, with its high iron windows reaching to the sky is undeniably beautiful.

    The Mies Van Der Rohe Pavillion - Barcelona

    I found myself visiting Barcelona and this time, my feet were directed towards Montjuic. I had been there previously, but this time was different. The underground metro stopped at the Espanya station and I climbed outside to Montjuic. How beautiful! The plaza is very large, there is a lot of traffic and the Palace of Montjuic is there, lying on the hill, watching how everything below is taken care of.

  • My College, My Adda

    My College, My Adda

    In Hindi, 'adda' is a noun, with the nominal form of the word meaning the location or nest of a group or community, usually someplace shady. The etymology can be traced to the original meaning of the word, which means the "perching spot or perch for birds". Me and my friends refer to our college as our 'adda' - our ritual meeting place. Here are a few photos of my college taken with the lovely Diana Mini.

    Austin, Texas: 1931

    While digging through a drawer-full of photos that my great uncle Henry took (an early Lomography pioneer, I assume), I found this amazing panoramic shot of Congress Avenue in my hometown of Austin, Texas taken with an early Cirkut Panoramic camera. It's a breathtaking photo in my opinion.

    Hamburg is dominated by water. This is also reflected in the architecture of the city. The latest example: Dockland, the ferry landing of the same name.
