    Flea Market in Dituva village

    Only 20km from Klaipeda the west city of Lithuania there is a small village Dituva, which has one of the biggest Saturday flea market in the area. The market is located in the fields near the gardens of Dituva. It's seems that local people doesn't grow food on the fields, but use the field for selling second hand stuff. At the first glance you can't see the end of it, it should be about 1 square km.

    Trains - “Die Bahn”

    What do we do when we have to get from point A to point B? We choose the vehicle... Options are endless, but we all know, that planes are fast, but expensive, and on the other hand - cars are cheap, but slow... What to do? Choose trains!!! There is a huge railway web all around Europe, and lots of companies offer different "good deals" for traveling at the very low cost. My favorite is the German Railway, or "Die Bahn" as it is called in German.

    Nou Camp Stadium

    In the summer of 2005 we all went to the Nou Camp stadium in Barcelona for a visit. It was truly impressive - it felt quite a small ground, due to the way it is constructed, but the capacity is huge - 112,000. Unfortunately we arrived 2 days after the last game of the season, so we couldn't see Barcelona play.

    Wigginton Tournament

    Every year the eleven a side girls football team that my daughter plays for - Darlington Spraire Lasses u16s, goes to compete in several tournaments that begin once the league season has finished. Tournaments are often a way for clubs to raise finances and widen their profile and builds relationships that can cross into league tie ups.

    Kauno marios – Kaunas Lagoon

    Kauno marios (English: Kaunas Lagoon) is the largest Lithuanian artificial lake created in 1959 on Neman River near Kaunas and Rumšiškės. It covers territory of 63.5 km² which is approximately 0.1% of the total territory of Lithuania. The greatest width of the lagoon is 3.3 km and the greatest depth is 22 m. In preparation of the dam opening 721 farms and villages were moved to different places. The entire Rumšiškės town was moved and now is an open air museum of traditional architecture. But nowadays it's a great place where you can take your Lomo camera and with some friends go for a swim. As you can see on the photos we took some beer and meat too. By the way, this place is terrific for the frogeye lovers! Usually during the summer Kaunas lagoon water is great. The last but not the least - don't forget to take something to fight with mosquitoes which are trying to kill you in the evening.

    Callot frescos

    When Remy Callot died in 2001, his house was intended for destruction to build a traffic circle. But Remy Callot had spent his retirement to decorate his garden's walls with mosaic. So, in 2006, "the house of the fool" as it was called, was finally destroyed but walls were preserved and now, instead of a roundabout, it is question to build a museum of Art Brut. I truly hope it will!

    Gondola

    I know its ultra touristy but a trip to Venice isn't complete without a gondola ride. There are millions of things to shoot along the way and you definitely get a different perspective of Venice actually being on the water.

    Warsaw and Krakow

    I had a lot of fun visiting Poland. I traveled through many small towns and a few big cities. I loved Krakow so very much because it was one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. Warsaw was much more modern looking, and its Soviet styled buildings imparted a taste of sadness to its atmosphere. I wandered down the streets of Krakow day and night. There was always something to do and so many friendly people to talk to. I enjoyed walking along the Vistula River at night in Krakow and Warsaw. I would eat at fine restaurants with my friends and drink carbonated mineral water and delectable beers. The food was delicious and incredibly affordable. I saw vast treasures owned by the Catholic Church in places of pilgrimage. I hope to go back to Poland one day.

  • Intramuros

    Intramuros

    Formerly the infamous prison for rebels and dissidents during the old times, the walled city of Intramuros, the "city within a city", has withstood the test of time and still remains majestic as ever. Some of its splendor is lost due to urbanization not to mention the series of bombings experienced during the Second World War but it still retains its old worldly charm. Some of the moats and gates of old still stand while one of the many torture chambers has been converted to a coffee shop. How's that for ingenuity? For a tourist, a visit to Manila would be incomplete without at least a visit to the walled city. It is located near the Pasig River and most jeeps going to Quiapo will pass by there.

    Pigeons of Venice

    Okay, okay, so many people call pigeons "rats with wings". They're everywhere, invading our planet by the hoards. They nip at anything edible, poop on your head if you're not careful and basically make a mess. However annoying they are, we all have to admit that they're one of the best lomographic animals around. If you want to mix the photogenic ability of these birds with a stunning backdrop, than there is no better place to go than to Europe's grandest drawing room...the Piazza San Marco in Venice! There are literally hundreds of pigeons constantly fluttering about giving you numerous chances to snap them up with your lens.

    Train Station - Eugenio Lefreve

    Up to the mountains, up to the sky. Santo Antonio do Pinhal, in the middle of Serra da Mantiqueira, is a beautiful little city. With waterfalls, hiking spots, restaurants, and small hotels, the city is perfect place to stay and joy the altitude (almost 1.300 m) and the nature. But the best place to go with your Lomos is the Train Station, where you can eat, drink hot coffee and feel like you travel back through time, with old architecture and the beautiful gardens. Walk through the train tracks, smell the cold air, visit the Holy Mother Statue, where you can see the entire valley ahead. What a splendid view. Winter is the best time to go there. But even in the summer you can feel the great weather of the mountains. But watch out, the train is coming and you don't want to be in front of it.

    Pulau Ketam

    On 13th October this year (2007), a bunch of Lomographers from Malaysia went to a small island in Klang for a Lomo outing. We had 11 Lomographers which joined the outing activities and all were equipped with at least two Lomo cameras. We reached the port of Klang around 9.30 a.m and took a boat to our destination which was Pulau Ketam. We reached it around 12p.m. When I first reached there, what attracted me the most was the port of the Pulau Ketam. Besides that, the other thing that attracted me was the boat that was used by the fishermen. It was so colourful and it was absolutely perfect for Lomo shots. So I took out my cam and had non-stop picture shooting.

    Old South Station

    It's not easy to find abandoned places in Nice! The ancient railway station of "Chemins de fer de Provence" is one of them. Built in a neoclassical style in 1892 by the architect Prosper Bobin, it is not used anymore since 1992 (a new terminus was built 6 blocks from the ancient one).

    Telok Chempedak Beach

    During a Lomo outing with a bunch of Lomogrpahers to Kuantan, we passed by a beach named Telok Chempedak. The first impression of Telok Chempedak beach was like in heaven - golden sands, waves, sun, people, everything was just great! I love this place so much. Telok Chempedak is located just approximately 5 km from the Kuantan town.

    National Park Serra da Estrella

    The National Park Serra da Estrella is the highest mountain chain in Portugal. Most of the Portuguese just call it Serra. The highest Mountain is the so called Torre, which is almost 2000 meters high. On the way up and down I had to stop for several times just to take some pictures of this really natural beauty.

    Temples of Angkor

    It's one of the most beautiful complexes of ancient temples in Southeast Asia. The temples of Angkor, in Cambodia, built by the Khmer civilization between 802 and 1220 AD, represent one of humankind's most astonishing and enduring architectural achievements. From Angkor the Khmer kings ruled over a vast domain that reached from Vietnam to China to the Bay of Bengal. There are more than 100 stone temples in all. Angkor Wat honours the Hindu god Vishnu and is a symbolic representation of Hindu cosmology, consisting of an enormous temple symbolizing the mythic Mt. Meru, its five inter-nested rectangular walls and moats represent chains of mountains and the cosmic ocean. Then I can suggest the smiling Bayon, this is one of the most popular spots and, facing east, it is mostly visited in the morning. A good reason to visit in the afternoon! All those friendly faces of Avalokiteshvara certainly make you feel good.

    Bains des Pâquis

    Les Bains de Pâquis, one of the most trendy place in Geneva. The incontrovertible place to see. In summer it's very crowded, everyone looks for a little corner to put his towel, it smells like tanning oil all over the place, and you have to watch your feet to avoid burned creatures on the floor.

    The Grand Place

    Belgium is a tiny country with Brussels as its capital. I find that many people bypass it on their travels...in fact a lot of people don't even know where on the map it is! Sad! I'm sure the only thing they can relate to it is probably the actor Van Damme or Brussels sprouts.

    Grande Corniche

    The Grande Corniche is one of the 3 coastal roads going from Nice to Menton and the Italian border. There's the Basse Corniche (lower coastal road), the Moyenne Corniche (middle coastal road) and the Grande Corniche (High coastal road) also known as the road D2564 (see this link for the exact location of the road: "http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html":http://www.cg06.fr/tourisme/parcs-corniche-fiche.html). This road was constructed by Napoleon the 1st at the beginning of the 19th century and was the only way to go from Nice to Menton. Take the beginning of the road in Nice, near of the port, and follow the signs "Observatoire" or "Grande Corniche". It's climbing until 500-800m above the sea and that's why it's one of the best places to admire the beautiful Mediterranean landscapes of the Cote d'Azur. The whole area around this road is a natural park with beautiful forests and a lot of walking possibilities through the park.

    This Grotto is a replica of the one in Lourdes, France. It is located in San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan. They also built a replica of the Church, at least externally. The gothic design is very unusual and not typical of basilicas in the Philippines. It is a place of prayer and pilgrimage.

    Nida

    If you want to have real leisure time, choose Nida. Please, take the map and find Lithuania. Do you see a small and thick land in the Baltic Sea? That's called the Kursiu Nerija and its center is the town of Nida. No busy people, no loud clubs (there are some, but not as the main places to visit here) - just pure landscape... Perfect for slide films near the beautiful places of sand, sea water and small town houses... quiet, but still interesting.

    Pérouges, near of Lyon is a beautiful little medieval village located in the natural park of La Dombes (see other location).

    Handicraft Ceramic Atelier

    In a place where culture, history, fire and tradition are moulding unique pieces made of clay and cooked in giant oven, you'll be able to be in touch with the rich Brazilian past. The ceramics handcraftsmanship is alive inside theses houses, old red brick ovens and mountains. A beautiful place surrounded by mountains (Serra do Mar, Serra da Mantiqueira and Serra da Quebra-Cangalha). The city starts where once was an old King's warehouse, in the middle of the Estrada Real (the road where gold was transported to the Port, in Paraty-RJ).

    Ried Park Zoo

    This is not only a Zoo, but a park with several ponds, a dog park, little league baseball fields, Colorado Rockies practice field, golf course, tennis courts and public art centre (including public darkrooms). Yes folks this is the ultimate Lomographic location. You can go see the exotic animals in the zoo and later go to the ponds and feed the aquatic fowl. Pay a buck or two and take a little train ride around the park while your dog plays with more of its own species in the dog park. Pause for a chat with the old man with the metal detector searching for rare tokens and other precious metals. When you're done, head to the dark room to reveal what your camera thinks that you need to take home as memories. There is so much to do here that you can certainly revisit again and again.

    House of Birth of Wilhelm Busch

    Do you know Max and Moritz? The two characters from a book, two boys working against every authority existing in their small world like teachers or an old widow. The whole text is written as a poem. Or "die fromme Helene"? Sure you know them. Maybe they are called differently in your country. I saw the names, but forgot them all!
