It is the second largest triumphal arch in the whole world: Arc de triomphe it’s a very beautiful monument located in a place called Place de L’Étoile, in the end of the Champs-Elysées.
Arc de triomphe it’s a very beautiful monument located in a place called Place de L’Étoile, in the end of the Champs-Elysées. The arch was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806 and is engraved with names of generals who commanded the French troops during Napoleon’s regime. The triumphal arch is adorned with many reliefs, most of them commemorating the emperor’s battles.
Beneath the Arch is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the eternal flame commemorating the dead people of the two world wars. It’s the place where on the Armistice Day (11th November) the President of the Republic lays a wreath and on 14 July, the French National Day begins a military parade down the Champs Elysées. Inside the Arch there is a small museum documenting its history and construction. It is the second largest triumphal arch in the whole world.
The top of the arch features a viewing platform from where you have great views of La Defense, the Champs-Elysées and the Sacré-Coeur, beautiful important and very well-known places in Paris. In the opposite direction at distance, in a perpendicular line is located the new arc: La Grande Arche de la Défense. As there is no elevator in the arch, be prepared to climb 234 steps if you want to visit it.

Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.

For some, it marked their first foray into the wonderful world of analog photography. Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is. Whatever the case may be, toy cameras will always hold a special place in the hearts (and shelves) of analog photographers everywhere, quirks and all.

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.

It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
