    Emirates Towers Hotel

    Dubai, inside a hotel room in Emirates Towers Hotel overlooking Sheikh Zayed Road. Sheikh Zayed road is lined with high rise office and apartment buildings and quite a few five star hotels. The roads are always busy during rush hour. When it isn't rush hour, the road is like a race track with crazy speedy drivers scaring the normal drivers. Sometimes it's like a scene from Wacky Races.

  • Baby-Plage

    written by libellule on 2008-04-27 #places

    Baby-plage in les Eaux-Vives, Geneva, is a very nice spot to enjoy the sun in summer. But if you want to stay in a peaceful and more airy place instead of the small crowded beach, go a little further on the left where all the boats are parked, and climb on the flat rocks. From there you only hear the sound of the wind on the boats, and the ducks and swans on the water, and you smile looking at the huge crowd of sheeps stacked on the other side of the lake. One of the best spots to spend a sunny afternoon and get some tan in Geneva right in the middle of the city!

    Kaunas Lagoon

    Tell me who doesn't like water? Or maybe swimming? Everyone in the world once in the lifetime goes for a swim, so did I and my friends. Of course it wasn't first time for us but still we had a very good time. If in the other life I would need to choose what kind of animal would I like to be, then I would choose to be a fish.

    Södermalm (or Sôder) is a district of Stockholm, on an island, south of Gamla Stan (the old town). It remained a rural area for a long time. In the 19th century, Södermalm was known as a working class district, with poor wooden houses which burned too easily.The times have changed! Nowadays Södermalm is a trendy district, with a wide range of restaurants, cafés, bars, alternative fashion shops and design galleries, sometimes mixed in the same place. If you want to do shopping, go to SOFO, south of Folkungagatan.

    Ajaccio is situated on the west coast of Corsica, on the bottom of gulf of Ajaccio, between Gravona and the Sanguinaires Islands. This city was occupied for a very long time by people from Genoa and Corsica had no rights from citizenship there. They settled in the east of the city on the other side of Piazza of Olmo which is now the FESCH Street named after the famous cardinal Fesch, uncle of Napoleon and big art collector.

    I have been living and working in Cologne the past three months. During that time I walked around to discover the city, but the place I fell in love with first became my favorite spot of all. Therefore I recommend to every Cologne-visitor who loves modern and contemporary art: The Museum Ludwig is a must-see!

    Phu Kradung National Park

    Last winter, I made a trip with my dudes to the Phukadung National Park. We started at Mor-Chit, the North Eastern Bus Terminal and took the air-conditioned bus to Loei Province in the evening. The next day, we arrived at Loei and got off at Pha Nok Khao. Here we had some breakfast. After that we took the local bus to Phukradung National Park. And then, we started our track to the top of the Phukradung Mountain. At noon we arrived and then we relaxed before walking 3 more kilometres to our camp. The rest of the day we spent with setting up our camp and take a rest. And dinner was served. In the morning of day 3, we got up very early. But it was worth it, because saw the beautiful sunrise at Pha Nok An cliff. Once we returned to our camp, it was time to have our breakfast.

    Museum of Rare Stones

    Stones are cold and often not so interesting, but one man, named Vaclovas Intas, did get the feeling, that stones have a lot more to tell us than our drunk partners in local pubs on Friday nights. That's why he did collect stones from all over the world into one place in Lithuania's north side, the town, called Mosedis.

    Pushkar or "how Shiva became our family-priest", this could be the proper description for this story. Karma, our driver, warned us about this sacred place. There is a holy lake in the centre and basically the city was built around it.

    Clark Field

    Last weekend, I had a chance to take some time to shoot at the open exhibit located at Clark Airbase. This place played a vital role during the world war. It is an airbase of the Filipino and American soldiers who sacrificed their lives for my country, the Philippines. Too bad it was raining when I had the shoot. I really wasn't able to capture all the things I wanted to.

    Many of you will undoubtedly know Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, one of the greatest and more interesting Spanish painters. Goya was born in a tiny village near the city of Saragosse (Zaragoza), called Fuendetodos. This region is great for a roadtrip combining nature, culture and, of course, gastronomy.

    Vatican City State

    To write about Vatican City, I'm nobody to do so because I'm not an expert or a tour guide. And it's also too big and too much to cover. So I'm gonna make it triple S - SHORT, SWEET and SIMPLE.

    Views from Tibidabo

    Tibidabo is one of the highest hills surrounding the city of Barcelona (512 m) and is still very close to it to have one of the greatest views over the whole city. There is also a little attraction park, but more meant for children than to adults. You have also the great church of "Sagrat Chor" dominating the hill and not far from there the Colserrola Tower and the different tv and radio networks antennas.

  • Agiasos

    written by jelga on 2008-04-27 #places

    If you go to Lesvos island, you should pay a visit to Agiasos (Αγιάσος), located on mount Olympos (there are actually quite a few mountains with this name in Greece! ;). It is only 26km from the capital Mytilene and yet it feels completely different. Actually, because of its inland location and quiet atmosphere, it has nothing to do with the stereotype of the Greek islands. You can go for a walk from the center (quite touristy) to the upper part of town to enjoy the landscape and see some of the curious boards with local sayings (very photogenic but impossible to understand unless you know the local dialect!). Not to be missed is the traditional kafenio (a kind of café where people from the village -mostly men- meet up to discuss politics and sports and have a drink, normally ouzo; actually the best Greek ouzo comes from Lesvos!) close to the church of Panagia, famous because of its IV century icone of the Virgin. Actually, Agiasos is the religious centre of the island and, every year, on august the 15th pilgrims arrive from all over Greece to visit the church and then a huge feast -a panigyri- is organized.

    Fukuei Cape Lighthouse

    Fukuei Cape Lighthouse lies at the very northern end of Taiwan Island. Fukuei Cape Lighthouse often has to deal with fall and winter mist as well as with an unstable climate. To solve the problem, Japanese added a foghorn in the lighthouse, which can warn the boats when the mist is too strong.

    World Light Expo 2007

    At the corner of the barren highway that is Coastal Road you would see some odd looking shapes peeking over the hastily constructed fences. But by the night fall these shapes come to life in a spectacular display of lomographic glory. Lights of different hues light up Chinese structures made from everyday trinkets like plates, spoons, cd's, what ever you have. Just don't forget to bring films at least at ISO 400. Or a gigantic flash. If it gets too hot, you can also visit the ice light show, where it is minus 18 degrees. Just don't bring your gear inside.

  • Rama 9 Royal Park

    Rama 9 Royal Park

    When I don't know what to do on the weekend, I usually go to public parks such as QueenSirikit Park, Rama 9 Royal Park, Suanluang, Lumpini Park and Benjakiti Park. My favorite park is Rama 9 Royal Park or Suanluang-ror-9 (in Thai) where bangkokians can walk, relax and exercise. It offers possibilities for many activities - swimming, tennis, jogging, walking, riding, badminton, picnics and a playground for kids. It's located in the outskirts of Bangkok; Sukhumvit soi103 rd. Rama 9 Royal Park is the biggest park in Bangkok. And it built for celebrating my Majesty the King's 60th birthday. I love to shoot there and double colorful flowers with a view or people.

    Phnom Penh

    I was fascinated by this city with temples and houses in Indochina style. It's a little pearl in Southeast Asia and its tragic recent past seems to undermine, but not destroy its beauty and life. You can be attacked by tuk tuk drivers and people but you can also see young Buddhist monk with in their orange, yellow and brown color clothing walking in silence. I believe it was the hottest time of the year, and walking around, even for just 5 mins, in 40C heat is a tough task! Even though parts of the city were messy a lot of it was beautiful, including areas by the lake and by the river. The people were great too!

    Casa Mila

    My first attraction on my Barcelona trip this summer. A must for anyone, either you love art or not. Any time any hours, any minutes; either morning or evening, the views are great! I only managed to get myself some bright sunlight pictures, but seeing other people's evening shots or sunset shots on the warrior roof, they are fab!
