Faithful Shwedagon Pagoda

1

Truthfully by faith. Shwedagon Pagoda (also known as the Great Dagon Pagoda and the Golden Pagoda) is located in Yangon, Burma. It’s a sacred place where faithful Burmese go.

I had a chance to visit this holy place and I traveled there in high spirits. Burma is still the real Buddhist country. Everyone realized this because Shwedagon Pagoda has always been packed with Buddhists from both Burma and many countries around the world. From sunrise ’til sunset; they come here with heart and spirits that is full of belief and faith in this golden place.

Every evening, different generations of Burmese gather to help clean the surrounding area. This is a very impressive tradition.

Beauty, greatness, and faithfulness are the motivations why Buddhists across the world keep coming to visit Shwedagon Pagoda at least once in their lifetime.

    The Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island"), also known as "Pearl in the Havel sea," is a world cultural heritage and popular destination for Berliners. Loose peacocks, water buffalos and the magical character of the island were also a reason for me to go and spend one Sunday afternoon there, with my LC-A+ and the LomoChrome Purple film.

    Khalik Allah: A Halo in the Darkness of Night

    He calls himself Khalik Allah – a creator, a limitless, timeless, infinite being. He documents life as it comes and goes, as it hurts, as it glows inside the protagonists of his stories. His photography and videography take us deep into the never-ending nights of Harlem, a place where the darkness might seem to reach its peak. Yet, he is capturing light in its purest form, reminding us that it lies in everyone’s eyes, within everyone’s self.

    Lomography Day Trips: Hangzhou, Zheijang, China

    Located in the Zhejiang province, Hangzhou is known as one of the most beautiful cities in China. I went there following my aunt’s advice. She studied calligraphy in Hangzhou Arts University (杭州美术大学) and told me, "When I sat by the lake, I just understood Chinese painters. They painted what they see, not less."

    Light Painting: Electric Force

    Imagine a blindfolded painter whipping his brush on a canvas. This is what the light painter does in the dark. He wags his light writers in the air and trusts the camera to record what he can't see. As for the moment of truth—careful, the sparks might fly.
