    Palma De Mallorca

    As the Hotel Hawaii as my base I could explore both Palma Nova and Magaluf as they were both equal distances from the hotel (which should be on the map.) There was a great snorkeling area round the hotel as it stuck out into the sea, this gave me plenty of opportunity to chase fishes with my fisheye and underwater housing.

    Fuji Superia (35mm, 400 iso) user-review

    Fuji Superia ISO 400 is the most popular film in my country, Indonesia. It may not be the most popular film around but everyone here uses it to put in their camera. With ISO 400 you'll get bright colours, yellow will get even more yellower and the red is much more redder if you use this film.

    The Grounds of Alberta's Legislature (Edmonton)

    As expected, the Alberta Legislature is the site of serious business for the government of one of Canada's wealthiest provinces. But it is also a great place to find families picnicking and playing in one of the many fountains, community groups gathering to celebrate a multitude of occasions, lobby groups protesting something or another, and young men proposing marriage to their lovely ladies (as I did nearly 10 years ago).

    Michigan Central Station (Detroit)

    Old buildings intrigue me. I think about the stories that could be told if the walls could talk. Michigan Central Station at 2405 West Vernor in Detroit opened in 1913 and operated as a passenger rail station until the last Amtrak train pulled away from the station on January 6, 1988.
