London Hit List #21 Buckingham Palace is the quintessential royal abode, perhaps because it is the Queen’s official residence in London.
Every tourist who goes to London tends to make their way towards Buckingham Palace although it is only open to the public in the summer.

Colors mean differently for all walks of life. The color chartreuse is a vivid yellow-green, one that resembles lime and green apples, or the nuclear substance in the disaster movies. Such color is like a poisonous tango between sweetness and danger, isn’t it?
Wherever I go I am drawn to cemeteries, as the culture of death always tells a lot about the people, who live it. In the Philippines I stumbled about a variation of outstanding customs and rituals that left me partly in awe. This is a tale of life and death in the Philippines.
Colors mean differently for all walks of life. The color Scarlet is no mere orange-red hybrid hue; it's a passionate, haphazardous one. Lomography tries to understand the meaning of each complex color found in the gradient and what it means for most of us.
