    Shuang-chun beach

    Shuang-chun beach is located in the Jiayi County. I often go there with my schoolmates to swim. This is a beach that very few people know. Because this beach has maintained its very primitive life style there is hardly any pollution.

    Cours Saleya

    When you are once in Nice, you have to visit the Cours Saleya. It lies parallel to the Promenade des Anglais which streches by the sea. Go there in the morning and have your breakfast in one of the multiple cafés. Sit down and have a cup of lovely latte and some french croissants and just look at people and enjoy the first warming sun.

    Gardens of Herrenhausen

    Well this sounds a bit like a boring lomolocation - garden, flowers, old people, tourists. But I want you to first read this text (that took me hours to write!) and do not skip the first paragraph with the historic facts! Then you will see why I like this location and why it is worth to pay a visit.

    Contrasting the majesty and grandeur of nature, is the wonder of the city...which is also of high interest, photographically. either at home or on the road, shooting in the city is never boring. Architecture. Filth.

    Sunday flea market. This place is just great to walk by or then look for something antique, among the market stalls you'll always find something to buy, needed or not! Try to go there at the morning cause it gets crowded around noon.

    Bridgeport

    Bridgeport, Connecticut may well be the street photographer's dream. It's a poor city; "hardscrabble" is a term often used to describe it; along with "blue-color", "down-on-its-heels", "seedy", and "shaky". Let's face it, it's not dolled up nor is it sanitized - it's really ugly and it's real. It's a perfect laboratory for the fan of grit and those who search for the sublime amidst the mundane. But even a place as seemingly hopeless as Bridgeport is subject to gentrification and revitalization. Enterprise zones, development projects, eminent domain abuse - all are rapidly working their protean magic across the cityscape. Many of my favorite places for shooting have already mutated and changed; the television graveyard, the old trucks that dotted the vacant lots - all are gone. Former factories are turning into offices and loft condominiums, so you got to get there soon. Owners of blighted lots and abandoned warehouses are suddenly taking an interest in their property, chasing off itinerant photographers and locking the gates behind. You can still catch some unusual graffiti - at least if it's on public property.

    It was my grandfather (the big Henry, cause he was really tall and fat), who built up this restaurant many years ago together with my grandmother. When he died, my uncle and aunt got the restaurant. And they developed it even more.

    Gamla Stan in Stockholm

    A couple of weeks ago I went to Stockholm. It was freezing cold, but very charming. I fell immediately in love with the heart of Stockholm, Gamla Stan. The name derives from the term "gamla staden", which literally means Old Town. On the maps and in the literature from the mid 19th century, however, it was being called "staden mellan broarna" ("the city between the bridges") or staden inom broarna ("the city within the bridges"). This is not surprising, since the city of Stockholm was built on islands and Gamla Stan is the oldest and central part of the settlements.

    Well, no one will be surprised to hear that also in Europe you can find a lot of historical buildings, especially churches. But this one is especially special. Why? Well it's not the long history that started in around year 990. No, it's the colour inside.

    Alentejo

    Alentejo is a region in the south of Portugal. It is divided in "alto Alentejo" and "baixo Alentejo", but their similarity is striking. I think this location should be posted in the ultimate LomoLocations due to its unique features.

    A beautiful place in Lucerne

    This special place that I will show you, is one out of many that you will find in Lucerne. No doubt about that. BUT this place you will find no other travelers, because it's a secret that I am telling you. Even lots of people that live here have never been there. That's for sure. No matter, in winter, summer, autumn, spring, day or night this place is beautiful anytime. The building that you can see is part of the conservatoire...must be nice going to school there. Actually I have never seen people going in or coming out of it.

    Red&gold Chinese urban island in Italy. A must see. Go any day, anytime. Don't miss the supermarket! Ok fellow lomographers, this is my choice for lomohunting area. If you need a break from the harmonious and perfect and measured and all-in-its-place renaissance beauty, you need to come over here.

    Easter - Egg races

    If you're in Lithuania and it's Easter time, you have to get yourself into one of the best Easter traditions in the whole world. First of all, you have to prepare for the egg races! Find yourself the standard package of eggs in the supermarket, and paint them. Here is the big thing, believe me or not, because the "tuning" of your egg can be the critical factor in the races.

  • Condesa Neighborhood

    Condesa Neighborhood

    Mexico City`s coolest and hippest neighborhood, the best place to see and be seen, art galleries, book stores, fashion, boutiques, cool restaurants and bars, beautiful streets and parks, and really nice Art Deco buildings from the 1920s. Very safe place also, but sometimes a little bit expensive, but it`s worth it. Having a walk, skateboarding or playing soccer (in Mexico you can play soccer everywhere), so always have your sneakers on, no boots, please, our legs will appreciate it. Eating in one of La Condesa`s multiple restaurants is relaxing, fun and satisfying. It`s also an LC-A paradise, so shouldn`t forget to bring a lot of rolls with you.

    Abandoned Railroad Tracks

    Traces of the once working mexican railroad, slowly erased by nature. On one side the tracks end abruptly, but on the other the keep going on and on. And not only railroad tracks go on, but lots of strange things like advertisements that warn you about never coming train; rusty metal, rusty clothes and even forgotten rusty christmas trees resting forever on the millions of stones that surround the tracks. It's like being on a forgotten island in the middle of a crowded city.

    If you're a fan of sculptures, this is the place for you! The Nasher Sculpture garden at the Dallas Museum of Art is a lomographer's paradise. On a bright, sunny day, even the original fisheye can enjoy itself! Thursday evenings relax in the cool shadow of downtown with a bottle of wine, a close friend or just your lomo and settle in for some sweet jazz and excellent people watching.

    If you are in Rome, Italy as a tourist, you shouldn't definitely miss visiting this enormous architectural monument built about 1920 years ago by the Emperor Vespasian. He started building it between 70 and 76 AD, but it was completed by his son Titus in 80 AD. The Colosseum was dedicated to the year of Vespasian's death by him. The opening celebrations lasted for 100 days presenting many games.

    Cairo

    My friend David, Maya and I arrived in Cairo early in the morning, hailed a taxi and set off to the Talat Harb area to look for hotels. Our taxi driver (working on commission basis) drove us to his hotel where we were dragged in, tiredness and the thought of a bed overweighed our energy to look for another one. The hotel was cheap but awful. The rooms were dirty and the English man who run it was frankly the biggest asshole I have met in my travels. Anyways, we checked in, caught a few hours of sleep and got up for a late breakfast. David stayed in bed all day while Maya and I went to explore Cairo.

    Tampico

    Tampico - it`s the strangest city I've ever visited. I was there on a 4 day business trip, so I didn't really have time to lomograph the city... It was an amazing mixture of decay and modernity: abandoned buildings everywhere, side by side with shiny furbished buildings. I made a mental map of the city, while walking around it. On the last day, I escaped from work at the dinnertime and racing against the time I shot 2 rolls of the city. The map is still in my mind, waiting for the moment until I`m back in Tampico.
