When I’m going to Porto’s Downtown it’s seems like compulsory passing in the Market of Bolhão. Why? Just it’s placed nearby the most covered street of Porto, Sta Catarina Street. As a market, Bolhão has four main sections: floral, fish, meat and vegetables zones. The marvelous thing it’s that all stores has a traditional air and the products are really fresh. Me and my dad always go there! Walking around with the LC-A camera, and as a participant of the LCA Race, I just couldn’t let pass the opportunity of lomo locate one of the ex-libris of Porto city.

The touristic appeal of Japan lies not only in its castles and flower storms, but also in the mix of unique practices and Occidental influences. The duality is evident in Tokyo and even in Osaka, which has gained more visitors over the years.

This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing.

It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
