Right outside of Albuquerque is Tinkertown! A small miniature museum with walls made from glass bottles and tons of handmade figurines.
Tinkertown is a folk art museum that is located about 20 minutes outside of Albuquerque on the way to the tram. The museum takes about an hour to walk through. It features walls made from glass bottles and dozens of scenes made up of handmade wooden figurines.
Many of the figurines and much of the museum itself was built by it’s creator Ross Ward. Each scene is different and allows for interesting experimentation in long exposures and with your flash. Part of the exhibit is dedicated exclusively to the circus and to clowns.
The staff are extremely friendly and admission is cheap. Photography is allowed in all the exhibits. Sunlight is the main source of light allowing for beautiful, naturally light photos. A flash is helpful for darker corners and hidden spots.
The back of the museum boasts of a boat and beautiful pathways made from stone and glass. There is a variety of lighting for different effects throughout the whole place.
This article is dedicated to the Italian street photographer and portraitist Ugo Mulas who masterfully documented the miniature circus of the great sculptor Alexander Calder. To write this tribute I documented a recent Christmas event in my city Como, a wonderful exhibition of vintage toys in a forest of snow-covered pines. Take a look!
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.

Speak of South Korea and, chances are, the bustling capital city Seoul and the charming island of Jeju would be the first destinations to come to mind—and for very good reasons. But while these top tourist draws are definitely worth the visit, the rest of the country is dotted with many more gems often unheard of to outsiders. Here are a few of them.
