    Villa Auska

    The Villa *AUSKA*, I would like to present you, was build in late 60s for Leonid Brezhnev - General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (1964 - 1982), but he never stayed there. It is a beautiful and authentic place in the forest near the seaside in the city of Palanga.

    The famous Santa Cruz beach of Northern California is an awesome Lomolocation all year-round. Though the summer might be a little too crowded due to the lively and always animated boardwalk, the environment is still great and fun.

    Blue Lagoon

    Iceland surely is a strange place. One of the most astonishing sites is the blue lagoon. Well. It's a hot thermal source. But it's more than that. It lay in the middle of a field of volcanic stones, a rough moon-like field. The Bath is close to the seaside, that's why there are Sea-Minerals in the water and on you. It's a habit to put a white mineral-paste on you skin.

    River Reuss

    I don't take charge if you are going to this place, well actually into this place. Lucerne, the city where I live, is next to the "Vierwaldstättersee" (name of the lake). Here also starts the river Reuss that passes the city and also divided into the old and new part of it. Lots of tourists are coming to see the "Kappelbridge" (view picture) that crosses the river. After this bridge there are coming some others.

    Disneyland

    Disneyland is the place where dreams come true. I live only about 20 minutes away from Disneyland and Disney California Adventures. Though I myself have only been there 5 times, I am sick of annoying little kids crying to their parents and the long lines for the rides, but still not sick of taking pictures. You can see everything when you are there; from a happy family from Germany to a handicap Christian group from Iowa.

    Karni Mata Rat Temple

    When: Best in October, There is a Camel-Fair nearby Just imagine that you are in the middle of the North-Indian Desert. Just for Fun! Then you jump into a Hindu-Temple. Because there is not anything else to do and why are you in India anyway? Like me. We wanted to go to a city which streets had been flooded. But this mischief brought me to the place that flooded my imagination. The Karni Mata Temple close to Bikaner is off from any travel-route, a diamond among travelers.

    Walthamstow

    When: All year long, even Christmas and New Years Day. I got a scholarship for traveling to the UK and Ireland and had to write a thesis about it. The most surprising part of the journey was a short trip to Walthamstow. I wanted to experience a bit of the album Park-life by Blur. They grew up around the corner in Hackney and so the picture on the album shows two dogs racing.

    Food market at Barbés

    If you`re in Paris for a longer time, there`s no way getting round the markets here. My favourite market is the one at Barb`s every Saturday and Wednesday, a magic place where delicious fruits and vegetables, orientalic marketing strategies and dirt are somehow mixed into a tasty cocktail. Be sure to go there between 1 and 2 on the afternoon for supercheapo offers (2 kilo 1 euro yeah!). Also check out the other stuff they sell and have a look at the electric glittering womens underwear from Syria. On your way back home, be sure to go by TATI on the corner and have some converse shoes for 10 eurobucks. There are lots of wedding shops with unforgettable shoe designs for men and women too. If you want to take pictures on the market, be sure to do it secretely (special hip shot mission) or to ask very

    Alcatraz prison

    Alcatraz is a small island across from the city of San Francisco. It used to be a place for the criminals who had committed a very serious crime, such as Al Capone. Now this place has become a tourist spot. It is very cold there and it's really even not far from the city, but this place makes you feel a bit creepy and lonely at the same time. This place is pretty old but they are doing a very great job to preserve a lot of old buildings and old facilities. It's like a museum where you can walk around and explore on your own. The museum provides the tourists with all the information one could need and also with information assistant if necessary. For example, the assistant narrates about this place and also guides you around where to go. There is a very well done graphic map that keeps you from getting lost. Is it a fun place to go? No, I think this place would be more educational and adventurous. When I got out of this place I felt that, I will never do anything wrong and end up in the prison like

    I love to take pictures in and of the Métro. I use it everyday and I like it, but I also hate it when there are too many people. And there are often a lot of people but I like to take pictures in the early morning or late in the night time when the Metro is empty.

    Mountains

    MOUNTAINS. This goes hand in hand with forests, I love to travel to mountains whenever & wherever I can. Always photogenic and awe-inspiring summer or winter gotta have 'em near me. Playing and sliding on snow. Hiking, planning trips and looking at them in books and on maps, going to ranges I have only seen in print. Basking in their glow (sometimes getting punished by their elements) getting into the silence of the backcountry on a cold winter morning. I live in a city nestled by them & would go crazy if I wasn't. Not to mention: my job involves being in the mountains nonstop (I shoot snowboarding professionally) in the winter time. I need them!!!

    Strawberry Fair

    The strawberry fair was created by middle class hippies as an excuse to bake a few home made cakes, eat the regional strawberries which were just ripening and break out your old tie died clothing. Over the years it has grown to brim over the local common and become a mini alternative festival with a huge beer tent.

    Neues Institutsgebäude NIG

    If you`re into late 70's asbest-architecture, this is the place for you. Some clear instructions: enter this University building preferably in the evening when there are no more lazy students around. Have a 50 cent coffee at one of the automats. Say hi to one of the people lying around there. Go to the entrance hall again and get ready for an unforgettable adventure! Step into the grand PATERNOSTER elevator (this thing is made out of wood and goes up and down with crazy mechanics) and occupy yourself by reading the students paroles for vegan food. Get transported to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor and do not descend. When you`re reaching the 5th floor, a sign (see image) will tell you to get the hell off the elevator. The sign somehow signifies that horrible things may happen. But you`ll stay and become a hero. Hold your plastic cup tight. Catch your last breath. Load your camera and take some pictures of your awestruck face. Nuff said, you`ll see for yourself, my friend!

    Galeriiizu

    I think most of the Lomographers love art & design, so do I. Galeriiizu is a very famous art gallery that brings in much influence on the art & design culture to Malaysia. It is wholly owned by Mr. Izuldin Hani (aka Izu), a very influential artist in Malaysia. Due to the passion on art, Izu started to contribute all his time by starting a studio in Bukit Antarabangsa. In this studio, he started to hold art exhibitions that brought his name further to the art & design society. After around moving to few places and he finally settled at the UOA centre. Throughout the whole journey, Izu has launched a lot of exhibitions to acknowledge great artists from around Malaysia. It's a must visit places for art & culture's lover!

    Abandoned plants and mills

    Close to Lisbon, in the south side of Tejo River you find an industrial city called Barreiro. It is a city that during many years lived of the great plants and industries that in middle of the 60's had been built there. Currently already almost all the plants have been locked up or are not active, but the city continues with the heavy inheritance of being one of the places most polluted of the country.

    Flooded chiang mai. I touched down in Chiang Mai and a gorgeous afternoon greeted me. Managed to knock 50 baht off my room price and rested until evening descended. I decided to head to the night market for some dinner...got half way there and suddenly the rumors I'd been hearing came back to me: Chiang Mai was flooded!! I'd heard it a few times but I guess it didn't really sink in until now! People were wading through waist-deep water....the night market was definitely out! I had no choice but to return to the seedy part of town and find a semi-decent restaurant.

    Islands Borromeo

    On the South part of Lake Maggiore, there are three jewels called Borromées Islands: Isola Bella, Isola Superiore and Isola Madre. Lake Maggiore is the second largest of Italian lakes (65 km long, 2-4.5 km wide and 370 m deep in its maximum depth) but may rank first in beauty. It is an internationally famous resort of Europe, with its picturesque and spectacular landscape, mild climate and luxuriant vegetation. The climate favors a beautiful botanic garden on the lake shore, with exotic and rare plants including even those from the subtropical zone. The lake has many islands and some of them are famous for their lovely parks and pretty villas.
