    The Definitive Trick...or How to Get Films FOR FREE!

    To take pictures, we need our cameras but without films, we can't do anything. Nowadays, prices have soared and the same people who today, take all our money, in the past they gave us the option of getting free films or albums.

    Feeding Pigeons in Chelsea

    Making double exposures in Chelsea. I don't like pigeons myself. Well, not unless they are Chelsea pigeons. In Chelsea, everything is different, kind of like having a Midas touch.

    Analogue All Around Taiwan

    Upon my arrival to Taiwan, I quickly realized how much faster the analogue world has caught up compared to my small island of Hawaii. Almost every store window I looked into had an analogue camera as decoration, advertisement, or inventory! See the analogue goodies after the jump!

    Bairro Alto - A Lisbon Must-See!

    If you are a tourist and do not want to miss one of the biggest attractions in Lisbon, you have to keep a morning or an afternoon to visit the old but charming, Bairro Alto. If you are young (at least in spirit), you like to go out drinking or just being with friends, surrounded by people and joy, you have to make time to visit it!

    Vancouver, Downtown - East Side

    The Vancouver downtown east side has quite a story and history. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Vancouver, B.C. At the turn of the 20th century, this was the heart of Vancouver (Hastings st. & Main St.) Everything was there, the main library, the banks, City hall, fantastic shopping and even the Wood wards Department Store. The great photographer Fred Herktzog focussed much of his time to this area.

    Phoenix

    Phoenix, Arizona can be a quite formidable place to visit. Fortunately with some advice, it can also be quite welcoming. With summer highs exceeding 110 degrees Fahrenheit it's not a bad idea to visit during the winter months, or pack some extra sunscreen. Just a 10 minute drive from Sky Harbor International Airport, downtown Phoenix is the cultural epicenter for the arts in Arizona.

  • La Boqueria

    La Boqueria

    I had a wonderful time in Barcelona. It's one of my favorite cities. It's a very modern city, but it's the old part that always makes me come back. During a very hot day I was looking for some gifts to offer to my friends that stayed in Lisbon (my home town) at "Ramblas" one of the most famous sidewalks in Europe. Suddenly I found a fresh place where the colors, the smells and the flavors are different than all the other places that I visited before. The place that I am talking about is called "La Boqueria". It's a typical market where people can find all the kinds of fruits, vegetables, fishes and a lot off different exotic things like bugs, for example.

    El Cabanyal: A Former Fishermen's Quarter in Valencia, Spain

    First there was a fishermen's village, then there was a spa, and now I say, 'enough is enough, let's declare this place a national heritage site!' Valencia has developed into one of Spain's coolest cities but some of the old areas are under constant threat.
