    Panelomo’s Lomographic Journey - Goodbye Singapore, Hello Abu Dhabi

    Inspired by stouf’s Goodbye Quebec post, here’s my story of an unforgettable end and a start of another lomographic journey. I arrived in Singapore last summer of 2001, coming from my hometown in Manila, Philippines. Judging from my profession, Singapore is truly an architect’s playground.

    i-City Loves Analogue!

    We all know that film needs light to produce a perfect photograph which is why daytime offers the perfect opportunity to take photographs with your analog camera. But what do you do if you want to take photos during nighttime? How will you be able to work around the low light situation? Well if you happen to swing by Malaysia, i-City in Shah Alam definitely gives you all the light that you need to make stunning photographs.

    You have been warned - it's the attack of the squirrels! You are just walking around, enjoying the park, the sun and the trees. Innocently enjoying yourself, maybe even having a snack...

    When Lomo Went to the Seaside

    I visited Blackpool after an absence of thirteen years but this time went armed with a Vivi and a roll of E-6. Not only that but this was to be my first experience with lo-fi photography after spending the last few years in a digital only world. It was certainly an eye opener!

Besides being the vastest states in the country, Sabah and Sarawak are very much different from other states in Peninsular Malaysia, especially in culture, religion, attractions and even food! There are many interesting experiences to indulge in and we want you to share your stories!

    Plompetorengracht in Utrecht

    Just a gracht like any other - or an unassuming place to take amazing photographs? No matter how many times I pass by this place, it never ceases to inspire me to take at least a photograph or two with whatever film camera I have with me that day. Here's my collection of photographs from one of my favorite spots in the city.

    Ordinary Story (Rybinsk, Russian Federation)

    Provincial, rather small, mossy, conservative, boring, industrial, partly-Soviet, unattractive but I come back here every time, here, I always feel at home. I love it!

  • Berlin, the City I Live In

    Berlin, the City I Live In

    It was in 2007 when I first came to Berlin and it was love at first sight! Unfortunately, I was only there for a 10-day vacation. Still, memories of that trip never failed to excite me even as I wandered around in my old hometown. As fate would have it, a year later, I met the love of my life, who, coincidentally, was living in Berlin! So I made the big leap - I got married and moved to Berlin! And to this day, that still holds the top spot as the best decision I've ever made!

    Abandoned Pea Peeling Factory, Slowly Falling Apart

    In the city I work in, there is an old abandoned pea peeling factory. It used to be a place for artists and musicians to perform, but since it's falling apart, nobody is using the rooms in there anymore. I often drive by and I wanted to go in there!

    National University of Singapore, Singapore

    A place where the buildings are a mish-mash of the old and the new, the many interesting nooks and corners that I've discovered over the four years I've been there has made it a place I've come to grow fond of.

    On Our Way to THE Bridge

    Everyone who goes to San Francisco is going to see this bridge as evidenced by the millions of pictures that have been made of this location. But no one actually shows what you will see on the way there. Take your camera, take your film, keep you eyes - and your heart open, and go there!

    Rediscovering the Places (we thought) We Knew!

    If you ask any Singaporean, the most likely response you will get is "Singapore is too small, too boring. There isn't anywhere to go anymore!" I used to think so too until I decided to look at the small things through my analogue cameras and rediscover some of the things just "hiding" from plain sight.

    Edinburgh is the place I call home for the time being. It is a lovely student and travel location. It is a place that I have a love-and-hate relationship with as I associate it with both studying and entertainment.

    Where is the best place to get halloween junk? The halloween store, of course. PIck up your lomography camera and lets go right now. I don't know if they allow cameras into the store but I brought one anyway. Usually there are so many people shopping that the managers don't even notice you.

  • The European City in the States

    The European City in the States

    Everybody should remember their first time…I do. I was on a road trip with my whole family, discovering California. I´m not able to remember every detail from that amazing trip, but what I do remember is the feeling that I had when I first saw San Francisco. Those hills, Victorian houses, cable cars, the majestic Golden Gate. From that very first moment, that city became the city of my dreams. Who knew that 15 years later I would be just an hour away from my dream city?

    It seemed like a good morning for a walk on the long uninterrupted waterfront here in windy Chicago. The cold spray was unanticipated, but the feeling that we came away with after sharing the moving, wet expanse was definitely worth it.
