    Exit 17 to Dinosaur World

    If big action Hollywood cinema featuring large terrestrial reptiles who roamed the Earth long before Lomographic cameras existed are your type of deal, then you've probably seen Jurassic Park more than a few times. Combine your love of dinosaurs with a trip down Florida's east-west corridor on Interstate-4 and you'll surely be excited to find Dinosaur World.

    The Niagara SkyWheel rises above it all. Oh man, that's the cheesiest intro I've written yet. But seriously, the SkyWheel rises above the cheese that is Clifton Hill. Hop in a climate-controlled passenger cabin and get a bird's eye view of the magnificent falls.

    Last Spring

    Almost a year ago, at the beginning of spring, we made a short trip to Sacrow. A small sleepy town in Brandenburg, in the triangle of Potsdam and Berlin. We brought along a small picnic basket, a pot of coffee, and my Canon AE-1.

    During my recent visits to Helsinki, I was able to see several cities filled with amazing attractions and this one particularly intrigued me. A church built into the rock (aka Church of the Rock) is a great piece of original architecture.

    Lomography Day Trips: Lisbon, The City of Yellow Trams

    I divide people who travel to Portugal into two groups: those who prefer Porto and those who like Lisbon better. I love Porto, it's a little gem, but if I ever lived in Portugal I'd choose Lisbon in a heartbeat. It's got everything big cities have while staying beautiful and romantic and the same time.
