    Triana (Sevilla)

    Across the Guadalquivir from the old heart of Sevilla is Triana, the barrio of the city known for flamenco and for being a great place for a tapa and a glass of manzanilla. The streets closest to the river are impossibly narrow, with houses whitewashed and hung with pots of geraniums, or painted in the distinctive red paint of the city.

    Levoca is nothing special when you're looking to the map of eastern Slovakia. If you are traveling in this area (national parks, castles and so on), it would be a crime not to stop in the Levoca town. Take a break near the gate of Kosice, which is a monument and of course the main doors to the old town treasures of this beautiful town.

    Dune De Pilat

    What an incredible sight, as you stand at the base of the Dune after walking through all the touristy stuff. The heat is amazing and its so bright, it spreads out before you like a wall of sand. A staircase seems to grow out of the Dune so you can attempt to climb it without feeling like you are crossing the Sahara, of course climbing what appears to be a vertical staircase in the heat is not easy work.

    Not all too trustful of the tuk-tuks? In Thailand's congested capital, the efficient transport backbone is the Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) Skytrain, which was opened to the public in 1999 and currently undergoing expansion. Modeled after Vancouver's, this elevated rail system runs through 23 stations along two lines- Silom and Sukhumvit-that tangentially interchange at Siam Station.

    My LomoStory by johann_affendy

    Back when I was a social networking addict, I was always in search of new ways to edit my self-portraits; hoping it would spice up my 3.2 megapixel pictures. One day while scouring the Internet for tutorials, I stumbled across a Photoshop Action titled "lomography". The writer had a before-and-after comparison of a normal photograph and the lomo version of that same picture. The outcome, although digitally manipulated, piqued my interest enough to google more on lomography.

    Karlův Most (Prague)

    Daylight brings the crowds to Charles Bridge.. peddlers of paintings, drawings, jewelry and every sort of art imaginable. They accost and are accosted by tourists unceasingly. The only way the mob is unmanaged is when you are at a distance, unable to hear the roar of selling and buying.

    Lomography Diana+ - Staff Review

    A faithful reproduction of the '60s iconic camera of the same name, the Diana+ retains the best features and offers an all-new functionality. Back in the 1960s, a plastic camera made waves in Hong Kong. It was called the Diana - a lightweight medium-format camera manufactured by the Great Wall Plastics factory. It was inexpensive and easy to use, and can produce dreamy, soft-focus images that lo-fi enthusiasts go crazy about. The Diana was such a big hit, inspiring rival companies to make copies and knock-offs of the iconic camera.

    Ridiculously fun, absolutely flexible and always dependable. I bought a Fisheye 2 Camera a year ago. It was supposed to be a platform for catharsis and the vehicle that would introduce me to the wonderful world of Lomography. Now countless rolls later and an arsenal of cameras at hand it remains to be the closest one to my heart.
