    The Sacré Coeur at the Heart of Paris

    Only one day in Paris and what did we see? The Sacré Coeur is my first stop in our whirlwind tour of the beautiful city of Paris. As I came in from the Eurostar at the Gard du Nord it was the closest site so off we went.

    The Capuchin Catacombs in Palermo, Sicily

    If you go to Sicily you can't miss the capuchin catacombs of Palermo, something that confirms the ghoulish side of this city. A cemetery that contains 8000 mummies, lined upon walls, lying or standing, skeletons, and perfectly preserved bodies. It was active until 1920, when the last body was interred. And hooray! This is actually my first Lomo location in Sicily

    Pigalle and The Moulin Rouge:  A Day Trip Continued!

    Part of a day trip to Paris included many sites to see so as part of a walking tour we also did Pigalle in order to see the famous Moulin Rouge! If you are familiar with Baz Lurhman's film of the same name it will give you a feel for the area.

    Malaysia LomoLocations Call Out!

    Hello analogue freaks from Malaysia! Did you go anywhere this summer? Did you pay a visit to the wonderful beach near the East Coast yet? What about some heritage places at Malacca? Have you been to the countryside and had a Lomo-relaxing-walk with your loves one? Or maybe participated in any of the happening events, festivals, or concerts in Malaysia for the past few months?

    Are a Child's Eyes Made of Plastic?

    Can we revisit a place from our youth? To see how much things have changed. Two important events in my life happened in 1971, the Enchanted Forest Children's Amusement Park opened in Hope Valley and coincidentally, I was born. My parents drove me to this woodland wonderland a few times every summer of my youth to enjoy the rides and basically just have a fun family outing.

    An Escape From the City, the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center

    The Houston Arboretum and Nature Center is an escape from urban surroundings, tucked away surprisingly close to the hustle and bustle of the Galleria Area. This natural getaway is just inside the 610 Loop, off of Woodway Drive.

    Forgotten Places - Eastern State Penitentiary

    This abandoned prison in Philadelphia housed some of America's most infamous gangsters, including Al Capone. Full of its fair share of spooky stories and escape attempts, this massive complex is now classified as a 'living ruin'. With a favor from a friend, I was given behind-the-scenes access to some of the closed off areas and here are the results!

    (Requested Location) Pompidou Centre Paris

    One day in Paris can be as long or as short as you want. We planned for a long day filled with as much sightseeing as possible, continuing on our flying visit of the main landmarks our next stop (even though it felt like a walk through) was the Pompidou Centre.

    LomoLocations Call-Out: East Malaysia

    Sabah and Sarawak are two of the largest Malaysian states on the island of Borneo. 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!

    Solomon islands - the world's magical end

    It feels like the world’s end. Imagine just you, the ocean, tropical rainforest and traditional leaf hut villages. Longing to go off the beaten track? There is no beaten track.. :) We were lucky to win a trip to one of the last South Pacific frontiers, the Solomon islands. Armed with a Lomography Spinner 360 and a Sprocket Rocket we went on an adventure to the most remote and secretive islands you can imagine. And guess what? You’re about to discover a glimpse of our experiences...

    Spitalfields Market - Shopping Mecca of East London

    On a border of the Financial City with its skyscrapers, there is Spitalfields Market from which the East End starts. 50 steps away from busy Liverpool Street Station, and you are already lost in narrow and curvy streets which haven't changed through centuries.

  • Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco

    Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco

    The Palace of Fine Arts was constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition to house the works of fine arts exhibits. It was a temporary structure made of plaster and burlap and was meant to be torn down after the Exposition along with the other temporary structures, but it was so beloved that a committee was formed immediately for its preservation and with their efforts, saved it from destruction. Today, after extensive renovations, one can appreciate the grace and beauty of the structure with its iconic golden domed rotunda reflected in the surrounding pool, the rows of Corinthian columns flanking it, and the Ancient Greek and Roman inspired architecture and sculpture.

    The Ever Evolving Canvas - a Graffiti Mecca in Tulsa, Oklahoma

    To those who live elsewhere and to some who live even closer, the thought of Tulsa, Oklahoma stirs up ideas of oil and cowboy hats or Native Americans, farmland, and the historic "Mother Road", Route 66. Here's another side of Tulsa captured through film photography.

    Jökulsárlón - In the Land of Fire and Ice

    Welcome to Iceland, where fire literally meets ice, not only Bjork puts Iceland on the map but also places like Jökulsárlón. Planning on going here for a trip? Well make sure to load up on film as there wouldn't be any film shops available on the way to this place. You certainly can't miss out on the amazing photo opportunities that this place offers.

    Historic Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, GA

    I woke up on a beautiful Saturday morning and had no plans other than going downtown to a friend's yard sale. So the first thing that I did was grab my camera bag and head out of the house. I knew I wanted to take some photos but wasn't sure where. After browsing through the great yard sale items, I asked my friend if he knows any places close by that I can snap a few pictures of. He brings up Oakland Cemetery which is only about a mile away from his house.

    One Imaginary Door

    I've always heard Portuguese people are poets. I'm starting to get why, when reality isn't good, we imagine something better – a poem, a song, a door.

    MMK - Modern Art Museum of Frankfurt: An Exciting Discovery!

    When I hear "modern art", I think of Malevich's Black Square and the most random objects that I would never consider "art". A lot different with the Modern Art Museum in Frankfurt, Germany. It is HEAVEN fornphotographers. And even though there are indeed some random objects, there's still a lot more than that to discover.

    The Abandoned Factory in Albenga

    Last Sunday, I drove to Albenga to take photos of the abandoned factory that I always see when I enter the town. With my Holga camera and SX-70 in tow, I spent half an hour there just taking photos. It was a good spot for picture taking on a gloomy Sunday.

    Old Town Hall Tower - Prague

    The Old Town Hall Tower in Prague holds one of the the oldest and most elaborate clocks ever built – the Astronomical Clock or Orloj, which you have probably heard of, as it is one of the city's most popular tourist attractions. I know the clock is amazing... but have you ever noticed the tower? Yes, today I’m not going to talk about the clock but rather the tower that hosts it and what you can do in there.

    Conquering Mutianyu, The Great Wall

    I decided to end my summer trip in Beijing with a BANG! True enough, IT WAS! My friend and I decided to go to Mutianyu where the watchtowers and passes were built on the steep mountains (and what a climb it was!). Hiring a private taxi indeed was the best transport to take since it only took us a little over an hour. And it’s cheap! It’s a fast and easy way to get to the Great Wall if you want to spend a lot of time trekking the only man-made structure visible from space!
