The Casino of Monte Carlo is the main place were you can have a view of all these "clichés" who are more than that because they're also the reality of this place (shown for example in the 1995 James Bond movie "Goldeneye")!

    Kodak Portra160vc (35mm, 160 iso) user-review

    I don't use Kodak Portra 160 VC that much because it's difficult to find one from where I live but I had once the chance to find some rolls and test it with my Horizon. And the results were really good, I was surprised by the fine grain and the great colours of this film.

    West Como (Perth)

    West Como is situated 20 minutes from the Perth city. There are many nice gardens and lake to visit. You can choose to have a walk or rent a bike. Big trees, fallen leaves and nice air makes you feel more relaxing. Clean environment and green grass is exactly what you need to shoot some portrait album. You can even snap sunset pictures every evening.

    Behind the Scenes: Q&A with Zoe Ezequiel

    Zoe Ezequiel ("zoe191":http://www.lomohomes.com/zoe191) is one of the most revered female Lomographers in Manila, Philippines. Her pictures are full of life, and reflects her love for traveling and exploring new places. However, she does not know how to ride a bike, and doesn't know how to swim (nice to know I'm not alone, Zoe!). When not taking pictures, she works as a technical writer (__"I make user guides and online help for a software company"__). She admits that she's allergic to cold air and cold water, but she wishes to travel someday to a place that has snow. Also, __"I have never had a toothache so I don't know how painful that is and I wish I never would."__

    The Beautiful Sunny Island of Aruba

    Bonbini! Welcome as they say in Aruba. I love this island. It’s a great place for a vacation from the major city life. The beaches are crystal clear and the locals are amazing. We went in December, which is in the off-season, and I would definitely recommend that! The island is not that busy and there aren’t many tourists around so you’ll actually get a feel for how the island really is.

    This is a really nice place to go and take shots in London. It has great tall buildings and interesting angles. You can also take great shots of the hustle and bustle of working in the city. Well worth a visit when in London! It is also easy to get to via London underground or the DLR. Love it!

    Located off the coast of California, Santa Cruz Island is an incredible Lomolocation with cliffs, coasts, caves and coves to explore! Camping overnight guarantees an island fox sighting, and chances are you'll see (or at least hear) seals at one point or another.

    It’s not easy to find a nice, well- designed concrete skate park in Malaysia. Shah Alam is the place where almost all skaters gather to satisfy their thirst for skating. Under the hot sun, this skate park could be the best skate park ever built in Malaysia today, the design and the pattern of the park gives the skaters a feel like they are skating in a Western country.

    Introducing the Special Edition Instax Mini 7S Choco and White

    Polaroid-style photography is back with a vengeance in the shape of Fuji 'Cheki' instant cameras. Only this time the picture quality and development time are heaps better and a whole bunch of mod-cons are thrown into the deal. Unlike the old-style Polaroid snappers, the battery is now inside the camera, instead of in the film cartridge, making the cameras more economical and environmentally friendly. Also, now the Fuji cameras use Fujifilm Instax Mini, which is much easier to get your hands on.
