    Vatican Museums

    I've never been a huge fan of museums because frankly while traveling, I'd rather see the beautiful cityscape and enjoy mingling with the locals while sampling the country's speciality dishes however the Vatican museums are definitely an exception.

    Flying boat

    Starting from the Eiffel tower, The Pont Neuf, Notre Dame or Le Louvre, day and night you can have a one hour trip to see Paris from a original point of view. The 'Bateau mouche' (fly boat), is a boat with large windows and big terrace on top of it. You can walk on the sides of the ship to shoot great pictures. A voice is telling you the stories of the monuments in 13 languages, sometimes with music. Some boats have a night restaurant and allow you a romantic longer journey. Also, the river 'La Seine' cross Paris by the middle and has many beautiful bridges. If you go to Paris don't miss this experience, your Lomo cameras will love it! 11 Euros for adults and 6 euros for the children.

    Fish-market of Marseille

    40% of the fishes eaten by the French are farm fishes. When you'll go to Marseille, don't miss the traditional fish market that stands everyday on the Old Port (Le Vieux Port), on Belgian platform (Quai des Belges). The old fish-market (La Criée) has become the National Theater of the town. So, every morning, the fish-market takes place. The fishermen sell their fish on their own. They wake up very early, take fish (or not) from their nets, and go back to the harbor. Fresh, fresh fish! "Il est frais, il est frais mon poisson!" shouts the fishmonger.

  • FC Fossombrone

    FC Fossombrone

    This football team, in my view, is a legend. Without any achievements and success. The FC Fossombrone is playing the sixth Italian league and their games are only to be seen in the stadium and on their webpage. The story behind the team is that it was bought by the Belgian designer Dirk Bikkemberg. He turned this club around and gave it a complete make over. He designed the complete gear from socks to the under-wears and shirts. He built a new stadium with the green and the flags all designed. The jersey with the blue spiral and the white ground is the prettiest in the world. I read about this team in a German newspaper and it right away strike me, that Bikkemberg finalized the symbiosis between fashion and sport. The players of the team are also the models of Bikkemberg regular collection and star of his commercials.

    Chatuchak Weekend Market

    Though there are many markets throughout Bangkok, Chatuchak Weekend Market is still pretty much the undisputed king of them all. Chatuchak is pronounced as Jatujak and simply known by the local people as JJ.

    Samos

    Samos is a small island in Greece (length: about 43 km, width: about 19 km) but nevertheless full of contrasts ... mountains where you can go hiking (but you should be in good condition), beautiful and lonely beaches, cultural highlights like antique ruins, deep forests, picturesque villages, cosy taverns but also lively cities, where you can go shopping or enjoy nightlife. People here are very friendly and open minded. It's almost necessary to rent a car because public transport is non-lined. The streets are a challenge but great for adventurers like me!

    Barigui Park

    Every city has its own attractions. One of the most visited spots of Curitiba is the Barigui Park. It's a huuuuuuuuge park inside the city with an artificial lake, museums, amusement park, restaurants, aeromodelism, bike trail, sports field, trekking, barbecue spots, gym, exposition center, and many other things to see. During the summer time or weekends, the park is crowded with kids and dogs, families, couples and tourists having fun in their favorite spots. You can get there by car, bike, bus or even helicopter! You'll have so many things to shoot that you can't decide where to start! My favorite spot is next to the lake, where people bring their kites to fly across the sky. It's a beautiful show and you can't miss it!

    The Philippines is famous for its Fiestas or festivals commemorating a particular place's patron saint. The Aliwan Festival is dubbed 'the mother of all fiestas' and rightly so. With more than fifteen representatives from each corner of the country all vying for the right to be called the best, well at least for that year anyway. With colourful floats, intricate costumes and elaborate dances, there will be no lack of interesting subjects to photograph. The event offers a

    Ahhh, the lovely fortress town of San Gimignano! It was declared a UNESCO architectural world heritage site and no doubt indeed. The town is surrounded by massive walls and the entrance arch frames narrow cobbled streets lined with shops and cafes all bearing the specialities of the region. From hand-painted ceramics, glassware, pounded silver jewelry and of course the famed wines.

    Castle of Montjuic And Hill

    The hill and castle of Montjuic is really a place to see in Barcelona and a place where you can see the whole city with a unique point of view. Dominating the south-west part of the city you have the whole panorama over it on one side, and on the other side you see the great industrial installations of the port of Barcelona. Climbing up the hill is also very interesting because of the park of Montjuic and the Olympic installations from de Olympic Games 1992 (and specially the Olympic swimming and diving pool... do you remember the diving sessions where the athletes jump in the air with the background of whole BCN and the Sagarada Familia?).

    When one is in Singapore, there is always a strange structure looming over the horizon. Upon closer inspection this curiosity appears to be a massive architectural masterpiece that looks like one of the country's favorite fruits, albeit its stench, the durian. The Esplanade Theaters on the Bay is built to be the focal point for performing arts in the region.

    Cincinnati

    I have lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for my entire life. I have seen many things here, but there is always something new (or old) to discover in or around the city. I seldom venture into the downtown heart of my metropolis, but one day I decided to walk block after block while on foot with my LC-A. My friend and I had parked near a local pro shop after being disappointed with the film services and products they offered.

But wait - I have told you so many interesting places to see, but forgot to mention the best possible place to live in this island. That's why I have prepared this story about a little town of Hersonissos.

    Although it isn't the most famous city in Belgium and one could claim it is fairly small, I think Leuven is one of the greatest cities this country has to offer. Come during the day time and look at historical buildings, housing projects from the sixties, one of the prisons (we have two of them, both 19th century), have a drink on one of the many squares or BYO in one of the parks.

    Beach of Altafulla

    When I went to Barcelona this summer, I made a little excursion south, in the direction Tarragona, to visit some friends living in Altafulla, small town on the Costa Daurada. It's about 100 km south from Barcelona and easy to go there with the coastal highway. You'll go out at the exit "Torredembarra/Altafulla", then follow the signs to Altafulla. In the city, follow the direction of the "roman ruins" and after "Playa de Altafulla". It's a great and wide sand beach and the beautiful blue/turquoise color of the sea gives you immediately a big smile! :)

    Magic Fountain of Montjuic

    I must say I have a bit of poor luck with this attraction. My friends and I planned to go to this magic fountain on our first evening, however, before the performance started we decided to grab a meal and go back. Then here comes the pouring rain, getting lost around the back streets, very quiet place... etc etc. all those frustrating moments. We cannot go back to see the performance on time. Argh... Can you believe our luck? Raining our first evening, when we wish to enjoy the sunshine that London doesn't have.

    The views from a cruise ship are just amazing, so why not capture it with a Fisheye? The ship is enormous, so to capture that, I took pictures of the "tail" or the red exhaust pipes from the top deck. The red glass is actually the ceiling of the atrium below, so don't forget to take a shot from inside the ship looking out (that's the shot that looks like I used a red filter but it's actually the sun shinning through the red glass that made this effect.)

    Bay of Ecalgrain

    A little bay next to La Hague in Normandy, a beach of shingle between the sea and the cliff: this is the bay of Ecalgrain... Maybe the more beautiful beach of the spot! In the sunny afternoons you can meet some tourists but from 6 p.m. it's a pleasure to be almost alone in front of the sunset. One day I was swimming underwater with my water-glasses and I've seen the shadow of a dolphin. Yes! I swear! Ok, it could have been my glasses which were dirty... But you can see some fish all the same! Just come and see! And bring with you a piece of bread, some cheese and a bottle of red wine, it will be a great French experience!
