    Liuxi cultural city

    I like this place very much. The Taiwanese old movie-like streets are the places, the older generation remembers still very well. It carries the local lifestyle of various decades starting from 30's to the 60's surrounded with houses built following the ancient construction techniques.

    Historical Downtown

    I know you boys and girls think you had visited a city, maybe you think you live in a city, a big city... someone must tell you the truth: you have never been in a city if you don't know Mexico City. And the place to be is the Historical Downtown.

    Ski Dubai

    The Emirates are too over the top to be comprehended by a simple mind like me. But one thing I understood perfectly so far: deliver entertainment and sensations no matter of the costs. One perfect example for this is the ski Dubai! As we know, Dubai is in the middle of the desert! Desert equals sun equals heat equals no snow equals question. Answer: the sheikhs just build an amusement dome where there is a ski-world.

    I fell in love with Venice. This picture was taken at night during an aqua alta, the piazza was flooded and the basilica reflected on the water like on a mirror, it was like in a dream...

    Alchichica

    Every time I go to Veracruz from Mexico City I try to take photographs of the desert from the bus, because I really like the moving landscape, and being in the middle of somewhere. Mexican desert is the best, magical, with lagoons, unknown archeological sites, lizards, UFO`s (some people say, and I would like to lomo-prove it), and much more stories and characters travelling or living around. Lots of things to do, places to stop for a few minutes to grab a bite, or simply to buy things from people waiting by the road bumps. It is nice, your vision gets lost, your mind wonders, and the finger keep pressing the shutter.

    Siegessäule

    Berlin, October 2004, three young people pay a visit to a good friend. Although all three have already been to the capital at least once, we do a little bit of sightseeing. The weather is fine and we're all in a brilliant mood. "Let's try to get on top of the Siegessäule!" I've always wanted to do that. Even my grandma was once on top of this monument and had left a message there (probably covered under ten layers of paint now). "No, you can't get up there!" argues Matthi, but he's wrong.

    The Russian community in Nice has always been important since the second half of XIXth century. Nice began its career as a touristy city and the English and Russian people were the first to be attracted by the "angel bay" ("baie des anges") of Nice. Among the Russian community was the mother of the Russian Tzar Nicolas II, Marie Feorodovna and she fell in love with this city. 1903 she decided to build an orthodox Russian church.

    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 industrial coal silo

    A few months ago my girlfriend showed me an abandoned industrial coal silo. It is located next to a Kroger in Merrimont, Ohio. Merrimont is a small village East of Cincinnati, Ohio that was established in 1929. The village has made great strides to make itself appear much older than it actually is. The local inn is styled like a medieval castle.

    Tepotzotlán is a place, a little colonial town, near México City… but most important is this day. November 1 & 2, Día de Muertos, Day of the Dead; the day when people that has left us in this side of the road visits us to have a drink at our table. In fact, you can take part of the festivity at almost any place at México. One of the must important traditions on this day is the offering; it acquires different characteristics at different locations. At Tepotzotlán, some of the youngsters of the town organize a macro offering with lots of skeletons and skulls in every size and material (sugar, paper and clay).

    Cathedral of Siecha

    There are many places that I love to photograph, cultural events, bars, clubs and pubs, but undoubtedly my favorite place to shoot is the Cathedral of Siecha. It is an ancient god-forsaken church located in a small town only 30 minutes from Bogota by car. The place is magical, it is cozy and very photogenic. It`s very cold and photos can be finished in darkness, which is perfect for the LC-A+. At night with natural light or using all the colors of the color splash flash you can make impressive photographs.

    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

    Mount Ulriken

    As a student of Scandinavian languages and literature I came to Bergen in October this year to work on my final thesis about a contemporary Norwegian author. I had been granted a scholarship by the state of Norway, which allowed me to stay in Bergen for three month and do my research at the local university. Everybody who has been through writing his or her final thesis for university knows what a frightening project that can be. Have my studies really provided me with the scientific competence I need to write such a work? Is my topic good enough? Will I find the material I need? Will I have enough time?

    On mission trips, I and 9 other youth built two houses in two weeks. These houses are located in Fuerzas Unidas, Honduras. The most beautiful place on Earth. It is a poor, poor country, and a poor, poor area, but you can see the entire city of Teguz from the top of Fuerzas Undias. A view that Americans would pay 2 million dollars for. The people are the most blessed people I've ever met. They have no money, but they have love, love for each other, and love for the LORD.

    Shooting at the speed of Lomographic sound

    I went into the Chicken Shack ready to have my ear drums blasted to smithereens. I wanted to get some of that funk, punk, power chord electric sound that only bands at the Chicken shack can create on film; it was much too dark and the beer made everything fuzzy and chaotic. Still, I had my LC-A loaded with some luscious reversal film and all I kept thinking about was XPRO madness that result from the shots I was taking. If lomography were a Live House it would be called the Chicken Shack and if Lomography was a band it would play there.

I rented myself a bike and explored the little island (20,46 km²). One of the most impressing buildings of the island is the islands landmark, the lighthouse.

    The Belgian waffle

    When you think of Belgium, you think of chocolate, frites and brussel sprouts BUT don't forget the yummy waffles (or gauffe as they call it in French). I've been living in Brussels for over 4 years now and still can't get enough of it! I especially crave it when I'm out shopping or running errands as they have very convenient stalls and booths located in the metro stations and on the high street.

    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.

    Wesak Day Festival. If you are looking for a festive holiday with your Lomo cameras, Thai Buddhist Wat Chetawan Temple is the right place that you have to visit. Wat Chetawan is located in Petaling Jaya, a satellite city in the state of Selangor Darul Ehsan. What is so wonderful about it? Wat Chetawan is one of the most beautiful temples in Malaysia. I last visited this place during the Buddhist largest festive celebration day named Wesak Day.
