    Lake Malawi

    Malawi is one of the least known places in Africa. It lies between Zambia, Mozambique and Kenia and was formerly attached to North Rodesia. The people there speak English, one of the poorest countries of the world, but everything there works with a smile. Their main economy- products are wood and fish. A lot of fish, because one third of the country is covered by water. That's lake Malawi! One boat, the Ilala, goes weekly from north to south, filled with people, maïs, goats, fish... and very eventually some lost tourists.

    Bains des Pâquis

    Les Bains de Pâquis, one of the most trendy place in Geneva. The incontrovertible place to see. In summer it's very crowded, everyone looks for a little corner to put his towel, it smells like tanning oil all over the place, and you have to watch your feet to avoid burned creatures on the floor.

    Alexanderplatz

    The Alexanderplatz is a living myth that belongs to Berlin like the Brandenburg Gate. It was a market square, which received his name, based on the russian zar as he was visiting Berlin, in 1805. But it became a legend just after it was connected to U- and S-Bahn in the 20s of the last century and even more so after the Second World War.

    Kaunas Days Festival

    Kaunas - is the second largest city in Lithuania, which was even the capital of Lithuania lots of years ago. Today this is a city, known for its basketball club "Žalgiris", basketball player Arvydas Sabonis and so on. So it is so natural, that the city with such history has got its own festival, which is called the "Kaunas' Days" festival (sometimes it is called only the "Day", not "Days").

    Abandoned Trains

    Route 32 in Watervliet, NY (about 12 miles from Albany) passes over the mainline of the Delaware & Hudson Railway, much like the other highway overpasses in the area. The casual observer may miss the Lomographer's treasure trove which lies beneath the bridge, along side the tracks.

    Clark Field

    Last weekend, I had a chance to take some time to shoot at the open exhibit located at Clark Airbase. This place played a vital role during the world war. It is an airbase of the Filipino and American soldiers who sacrificed their lives for my country, the Philippines. Too bad it was raining when I had the shoot. I really wasn't able to capture all the things I wanted to.

    Duhnen

    The first time I've been to this part of North Sea I was in my mother's womb, I guess. My grandfather had a camping-car there and we (the entire family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins) went there (in parts) to sleep in this little smelly car. We did this every year, we came there (it was like ages driving there when you are young) and went to the beach.

    Around Hong Kong

    After meeting last outside the foundry pub on an old street - under a sunny summer day - Rupert made a visit to Hong Kong. Friday night was spent heading down to the harbor, walking around central, Soho then heading home for an early night to stock up on some serious energy.

  • Agiasos

    Agiasos

    If you go to Lesvos island, you should pay a visit to Agiasos (Αγιάσος), located on mount Olympos (there are actually quite a few mountains with this name in Greece! ;). It is only 26km from the capital Mytilene and yet it feels completely different. Actually, because of its inland location and quiet atmosphere, it has nothing to do with the stereotype of the Greek islands. You can go for a walk from the center (quite touristy) to the upper part of town to enjoy the landscape and see some of the curious boards with local sayings (very photogenic but impossible to understand unless you know the local dialect!). Not to be missed is the traditional kafenio (a kind of café where people from the village -mostly men- meet up to discuss politics and sports and have a drink, normally ouzo; actually the best Greek ouzo comes from Lesvos!) close to the church of Panagia, famous because of its IV century icone of the Virgin. Actually, Agiasos is the religious centre of the island and, every year, on august the 15th pilgrims arrive from all over Greece to visit the church and then a huge feast -a panigyri- is organized.

    World Pyroolympics

    Having a successful first last year in the Philippines, the World Pyro Olympics has promised to make it even better with more countries from different continents. The 2nd World Pyro Olympics donned in the country last January created an event for every Filipinos, foreigners, photographers, fireworks enthusiasts, and Lomographers like I do, an event something to look forward to every year.

    Wellesbourne Market

    You can find Wellesbourne Market a few miles from the M40, sandwiched in between Leamington Spa and Stratford. Locating it shouldn't be too much trouble, as it's held in a massive airfield which is taken over every Saturday by bargain-hunters. Wellesbourne is ideal for knock-off clothes, imported cosmetics, pic 'n' mix sweets, clocks with pictures of Elvis on the face and, well, not much else.

    Cagayan de Oro Fiesta

    Every August 28th, the whole province of Cagayan de Oro gets transformed into an entirely new entity of color, merriment and wonder as they celebrate their yearly festival. Floats, parades, dances and concerts are aplenty as they celebrate and give thanks to another fruitful year. This is a week long event so there is no reason to miss a one of a kind Lomographic photo opportunity. The locals are accommodating and gamely smile for the camera, proud of their heritage as Cagayanos. Getting there is a 1 ½ hour flight from Manila with rates depending on the airline. Accommodations are readily available but book in advance if you're going to the festival since many people go there.

    Ponte JK

    The Ponte JK (Juscolino Kubitschek Bridge), crossing Paranoá Lake, is today one of the most famous points of Brasilia, the planned city built by President Juscelino Kubitschek to be the capital of Brazil. It was inaugurated in 2002 in his honor and in 2003 it was elected in a World International Congress on Bridges (yes, such a thing exists...) the most beautiful bridge of the world. Alexandre Chan and Mario Vila Verde are respectively the architect and the engineer responsible for its design and construction, which cost around 160 million reis (Brazilian money) (or 80 million American dollars today...). It is a beautiful place, really, because it seems to be so light (despite it weights more than 13 000 tons) and at night the illumination gives it a special aura, as if Brasilia was a huge modern metropolis.

    Mount Batulao

    The first time I went to Mount Batulao was to celebrate my birthday on a September weekend with some friends. The picturesque jagged ridge of Mount Batulao looks like it has snow-capped peaks but it is actually just covered with cogon grass and its white plume-like flowers. We set up our tents on the first campsite that we saw that has a tree.

    Church of the Three Crosses

    From the very first time I thought traveling to Finland, one of my 'must' was the Church of the 3 Crosses, in Imatra, near the Russian frontier. For a Mediterranean guy, visiting Finland is astonishing. Things as elementary as villages are completely different from the ones I'm used to. Imatra is a clear example. The first time I was in Imatra, I missed the "city centre", so I had to get back... Finding the church is a hard mission, but it is worth it.

    Valencia

    Valencia is a city next to the beach where lots of Spanish and foreign students are living. Therefore it never lacks of animation. First of all, the city is amazing in an architectural point of view. Indeed, the main river, called the Turia, has been dried because of flood problems and they decided to make a huge park inside.

    Market in Udine

    This is a market in Udine, Italy. It takes place every week on Monday. It was the first time I went there and wow, I found lots of people and lots of objects to be shot from the hip. Voices everywhere, Chinese everywhere with their "out of market" prices. I found a beggar seated down on the ground and I gave him 20 cents then I took a shot of him. This is a type of life I like to shoot with my Lomo, the simple life of simple people rushing between the stands.

    For those who remember or are familiar with stories of World War II, the island of Corregidor in the Philippines is a place worth visiting. This tadpole-shaped island, also known as The Rock, because of its rocky landscape, is only 6 kilometres long and about 2.4 kilometers at its widest point.

    Market of La Libé

    It's the old market of the "Place de la Libération" named after the allied Victory in World War II and the liberation of the city of Nice in 1944. Since then, the place changed name into "Place Charles de Gaulle" but all the people still name it "la Libération", or best, "la Libé". The market takes place every day of the year, whatever the weather is. You can find all kinds of fruits and vegetables, great quality of fish, spices, flowers and very good Olive oil too... The whole market is very mixed in a very popular mood.

In the other building you can find an information centre. They are repairing some of the buildings at the moment, so you can go inside and take a look what is done.

    Cahors (20.000 habitants) is situated in the south west of France about 100km north of Toulouse on the Paris - Toulouse Axis. About 20 years ago the market of Cahors used to take place every morning, but as the farmers are getting older and can't transmit their traditions.

    Washington D.C. Zoo

    Washington DC can be a fantastic vacation getaway spot. Watch out because there are a lot of people that think the exact same thing. I found that when you get away from the mall and take a nice stroll through the city there are many nice things to point your camera at. The city is very clean (at least parts are) and there are a ton of clubs and things to do that don't involve US history, if one is trying to get away from all that. Of course all the stuff that is part of the mall and US history is really nice too.
