    'Occupy London' Protest

    On October 15 thousands of people from all over London gathered in St Paul's Churchyard to protest against capitalism and corporate greed. Defying the cold, police, and tourists, protesters united to deliver a very clear message: "There's a shift in the world - you don't have to be a genius to see our system's broken."

    DMZ - the World's Hottest Border

    It is most likely the one border that is constantly in the focus of the world. The demarcation line between North and South Korea is always hot and edgy. You better hold your horses and don’t get silly, because the soldiers have their finger on the trigger. But beside from that, the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in South Korea can also be considered as a political version of Disneyland.

    Lisbon Graffiti: Amoreiras Wall of Fame

    Someone said to me, or maybe I read it that this is the biggest graffiti wall in the Iberian Peninsula. I can't be sure of that, neither the length of it, but it is huge!

  • The Past Preserved at Robie's Country Store

    The Past Preserved at Robie's Country Store

    Hooksett, the small town I come from in New Hampshire, does not have much to show for itself these days. Littered with shopping plazas and used car dealerships, little evidence remains of what was once both a beautiful tourist destination and a bustling manufacturing village in decades long past. Perhaps the only remnant of these times is Robie's Country Store, a lone testament of more fruitful days for my community.

    Jacnaja Poljana, Kaliningrad

    Many German grandmas and grandpas are coming from a region called „Königsberg“. In fact we have the feeling that they are all coming from Königsberg;) But in the past, because after WWII this is Russian territory and the now called Kalininigrad was for a long time a closed area, which only was accessible for armed forces.

    Karen Demirchian Sport & Concert Complex, Yerevan

    Well this is a story how to find out, where you have actually been. I don't know, if this sounds familiar to you, but sometimes I snap my brain away. I come from an exotic country with dozen of films and looking at the pictures I don't recall the name of the thing photographed. After I have been to the Armenian capital Yerevan I found myself in that spot.

    Capitol Hill

    This place is lomographic magic. Mother nature and (father?) city all in one happy little plaza. Last April, I got the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C. This was the city in which I bought my very first lomographic camera! I picked up the lomo fisheye no. 1 at an Urban Outfitters store and started shooting right away.

  • Freedom Square, Tblissi

    Freedom Square, Tblissi

    The war with big brother Russia is on. How stupid and probably how inevitable, sadly enough. And one spot, that is always in the news and makes this lomo-location so vivid, is the freedom square. The funny thing is, the face of the demonstrations change its face at all times. One year ago I witnessed a demonstration against saakashvilli. Now, with the war in the back, he has somehow united the country from within. This looked differently half a year ago:

  • Kreshchatyk & Maidan Nezalezhnosti

    Kreshchatyk & Maidan Nezalezhnosti

    Most people think that Ukraine came from Russia, but it's actually the other way around. Kievan Rus was founded around 880 AD, and was an early predecessor of Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus. So people have been living in that particular spot for over 1200 years! It's incredible when you think about it. I just love Kiev, it is the capital and has a population of 4 million people.
