    Basilique Notre-Dame-de-Fourvière

    First, don’t be afraid by different names: “Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourvière” “Fourvière Basilica” “Notre-Dame Basilica” “Basilica of Our Lady of Fourvière”: This is the same austere building. But, like the Christ in Rio or the Tibidabo in Barcelona it’s the perfect place for an incredible panoramic view of the city.

    Behind the Scenes: Q&A with Champi

    Thomas de Fleurian, aka "Champi": is a Veterinary Medicine student in Turin, Italy (he's originally from Lyon, France). With his current school course it is quite obvious then, that he's fond of all kinds of animals. We have an adventurous Lomographer here - besides taking photographs, he likes freestyle and freeride mountain biking, freestyle skiing and is willing to try any action/extreme sport!

    I Love Agfa Pro Pack: After seeing much of the contrast, vivid and high saturation photos of a cross-processed film, It’s about time for some natural, sort of original colour- toned pictures for me to see that will somehow cool down my eyesight.

    Assumption University Thailand -Suvarnabhumi Campus

    The recent host of the World's University Debate Championships has a spectacular campus to compliment the gracious students who volunteered their time. ABAC as it is called by it's population is a Lomographer's paradise. With structures that combine both the best of Thai and European architecture and a huge campus lined with so many sites to see, its no wonder why a week wasn't enough for me to shoot half of what this spectacular school had to offer.

    Like other Business Districts, Ortigas center takes on a whole different form when the sun sets. Home to some of the country's biggest corporations and shopping malls, there's always something to do in this busy little side of the Metro. After shopping your little feet off during the day, a ton of options await the evening Lomographer. You can choose one of the various bars that line up Metrowalk or push a little further to reach the C5 area.

    Plaza Dilao

    Back when Christianity was outlawed in Japan Boat loads of refugees were taken in by the various Catholic groups in the 1600's. Most of these Persecuted Christians lived around the area known today as Paco, Manila. During the time of the Spanish occupation Paco was known as Plaza Dilao or Yellow Plaza. This was attributed to either the skin tone of most residents during the time or a plant that was abundant in the area. A statue of Dom Justo Takayama stands

    Kensington Gardens

    When in London, Kensington Gardens is the ideal place for a Sunday morning stroll in the company of a loved one and a hot cup of coffee. But beware! The park may not be the most visited one in London, but it's still full of life. Pigeons are swooshing over you, swans are squeaking at you and millions of tiny little dogs are snapping at your heels. The human visitors may be few, but the animals who visit and live there are far more. Needless to say, the place is teeming with great photo-ops, just wait for a little dog or a swarm of pigeons and snap away!

    A gorgeous place in North London, with lots of lovely cafes & food places, high-end clothes stores, and plenty of historic buildings. A lot of culture to be found, and it's right next to Hampstead Heath - which is beautiful, calm and often has musical concerts. Great fun in the sun!

    Buenos Aires

    Buenos Aires is a truly intoxicating place. With streetscapes and a culture of both Latin American and European influences, the different neighborhoods of BA provide the perfect excuse for aimless wandering and shooting. The Recoleta Cemetery houses some of Argentina's most (in)famous characters, and an incredible array of monuments and alleyways. Maps are available, but it's quite an experience to let yourself get lost among the statues and stray cats.

  • Pingyao, City Wall

    Pingyao, City Wall

    After looking in the large pile of pictures, which I have made during a trip of three months in China, I surely discovered location-treasures. I have been first to China in 1999 and I spent about three months traveling around. Quite soon I bought a bike to take some tours with it. I soon understood, that this is stupid in such a massive country. But I had to learn. I bought the vehicle with the help of some students in Xian. From there I went south with my bike and I wanted to see how far it takes me. The ride itself was the adventure all ready, hence traffic is meanwhile quite wild in china. But at the same time you have your own speed and you don’t have to talk to anybody. Well not everybody. But it´s amazing as soon as you are on the streets cars and motos drive pass you in a slow gear and are amazed by seeing a laowai (long nose, foreigner) on their street. It is a bit like being Brangelina. I remember stopping at a melon-vendor aside the highway and soon after the place was crowded, because the wanted to be part of the gossip. I slept in the cornfield and with some repairs I reached Pingyao and I was done. But the sight on the UNESCO world heritage built me up again. The centre of the city of 400.000 is one of the few remaining city walls of the past Chinese empire. Most of them have been torn down over the years and used for other buildings. But this wall reminds you so much of martial art movies set in ancient times. I wonder if Pingyao is the true Hong Kong Movie-Mekka.

  • Huangguoshu (Biggest Waterfall in Asia)

    Huangguoshu (Biggest Waterfall in Asia)

    If you are on backpacking trip in China and didn´t have a shower in a while, or your clothes ought to be washed rather soon, you should go to Huangshou. This is for the one reason, that there is no chance that you will get out this place dry. The largest waterfall in China will show you what kind of force large amount of water can develop. It will rain from aside and from the top. From below and from within. This nature spectacle is eighty meters wide and an impressive site to watch. Also interesting is the way the Chinese make business at tourist-site, a very special kind of capitalism under the red flag. Ok, first you have to spend some yuan for the entrance ticket. You walk in and you see a sort of open-air-lift. Sure you have to take it and there is no other way to the water. And surely this is to be paid. Once you do your walks at the waterside you will have to walk through the caves.

    China is quite a country of contrasts. Not only if it comes to mentality and economy but even more so in the geography. I mean it is a vast land and certainly there are differences in the landscape. These differences are best seen in the mountains There are steep and sharp mountains in the north, Flat ones in the Middle, Cliffs in the yangzee and there are the round mountains of Guilin, a region in South-China.

    Because I can’t really find my Lonely Planet of China I have to recall how I have traveled, taking my diary and doing the most awkward thing: remembering! When I was in Guilin I ended up in a hostel and kind of got attached to a Frenchman. The fellow had contact to a Chinese tourist-lady and asked me, if I wanted to come on a trip to some legendary rice terraces.
