    Fuji T64 Tungsten (35mm, 64 iso) user-review

    Last October I bought two rolls of Fuji T64 at my favourite camera shop in town, Richmond Camera. They had just these two rolls, expired (score!) so they were half price! I decided that I'd save them for a special occasion, and I'm very glad I did. I had the great opportunity to go back to London and re-trace a few of my steps from the world congress, and make a side trip and go back to Manchester as well. Needless to say I had a blast and could write for hours about how great it was to get back over to the UK... but I’ ll save you from that.

    Nice (Charms of The Old City)

    One of the main charms of Nice (besides the sea, of course) is the old city, "la vielle ville" or "vieux Nice" like the people here call it. It's a typical old Mediterranean city from the middle ages which has supported very few modifications since the 15th century (at least). As it is a main tourist attraction, there's a regular effort of the city to maintain in good state the architectural heritage of this old city and the whole area is really in a very good conservation state.

    Vienna at Christmas Time

    When I was first discovering Vienna 9 years ago it was around Christmas Time. I was very happy to stay there, of course, but coming from Nice, on the Cote d'Azur, where the winter temperature is nevre going under 10°, I was a little bit surprised of the cold and wet weather in Austria during this season.

    Caza Vizantina

    Much of the pomp and grandeur that was the Pearl of the Orient was carpet-bombed to bloody rubble during the Second World War. But whatever pitiful remains escaped the terror of Manila's dark chapter suffers a sadder fate: the slow death of indifference and neglect. Such is the case of a magnificent house in San Nicolas.....

    Most of the year the small town of Ludington, Michigan is nothing more than a small retirement community off the east shore of Lake Michigan, complete with shuffleboard, a mini golf course, and many, many antique shops. But once a year the town comes alive on the Fourth of July for one big communal block party!

    This location is near Bandung, West Java,Indonesia. The White Crater is famous for its beautiful scenery, which makes it an ideal place for family trips and excursions.

    Gateshead Trinity Square Multi-Storey Car Park

    Designed in 1962 in the then cutting-edge Brutalist style, by the time it opened in 1969 the style was no longer fashionable. Raw concrete and angled edges towered above Gateshead, easy to spot from most points in Newcastle across the Tyne. It was featured heavily in the 1970 film 'Get Carter', by which point it was already in decline.
