    You've seen his face in the microsite galleries. He sorts through all your film lab rats tips, checking if they are nice & good enough to share with the community.

    Ludington, Michigan

    Most of the year the small town of Ludington, Michigan is nothing more than a small retirement community off the east shore of Lake Michigan, complete with shuffleboard, a mini golf course, and many, many antique shops. But once a year the town comes alive on the Fourth of July for one big communal block party!

    The White Crater (Bandung)

    This location is near Bandung, West Java,Indonesia. The White Crater is famous for its beautiful scenery, which makes it an ideal place for family trips and excursions. This place is also very famous for being the most used place for pre-wedding location. When I went there for a hunting session with my Lomofriend there was a couple doing their pre-wedding photo session.

    Gateshead Trinity Square Multi-Storey Car Park

    Designed in 1962 in the then cutting-edge Brutalist style, by the time it opened in 1969 the style was no longer fashionable. Raw concrete and angled edges towered above Gateshead, easy to spot from most points in Newcastle across the Tyne. It was featured heavily in the 1970 film 'Get Carter', by which point it was already in decline.

    Yorkshire Sculpture Park (Wakefield)

    Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a great Lomo opportunity. The grounds are enormous, taking in open fields with sculptures seemingly randomly dotted about, woodland areas, 'park' areas with more concentrated works, and indoor galleries. Each one is a new Lomographic challenge!

    Endless Langkawi

    Westin Langkawi Resort Spa - I saw this long jetty many times since the project was going on last year, but haven't got the right time to go there. Well, this time I've made myself another favorite album from there. By applying the green filter, I find it useful for strong sun ray reduction and it makes my pictures more clearer. It's not difficult to get to the location and you it's absolutely free to enter to that jetty, it's beside the Westin Resort hotel.

    Luang Prabang

    Luang Prabang is a small town at the River Mekong in North of Laos. Among the Laos mountains this little unique town hosts about 30000 inhabitants and because of its state of being UNESCO world heritage you`ll get the feeling there are twenty times more tourists. The state of World heritage was given to Luang Prabang because of its mass of Buddhist temples and the colonial architecture the French left there in 1995. But architecture is not the only left over, you`ll get there really fresh made, superb tasting chicken baguette right at the market.

    White Beach (Torrijos, Marinduque)

    Traveling to the island province of Marinduque during the Holy Week was a test of patience. But rewards are abound. The stretch of white sand beach of Poctoy is proof to that. The privacy of a beach cove was perfect for sleeping right at the shore. The following day was excellent for getting a tan, playing beach volley, throwing Frisbee or just take a dip!

    Bruxelles Pub (Dublin)

    This has to be my favorite place to be on either a sunny or (more then likely) rainy evening in Dublin city. Relax outside under the heat-lamps and have a drink in memory of 'Phil', or head inside and get-down with some great tunes.

    Architecture in Stuttgart: Weißenhofsiedlung

    Thrills up and down my spine. This was what I experimented when I was walking across the streets of Weißenhofsiedlung in Stuttgart. Directed by Mies van der Rohe, 17 architects created a neighborhood in 1927 just to show what the “New Architecture” would be. There you can see from a detached house to an apartment block.

    Golden Gate Park Festivals

    When the autumn's Indian Summer hits San Francisco, the only place to be is outside and at a festival in Golden Gate Park. Speedway Meadows fills up with thousands of peace-loving folk and the air becomes saturated with rhythm, song, dance, hoola-hooping, flowers in your hair, positive energy and a lot of that funky green smoke.

    Go Green at Rod Fai Park (Bangkok)

    How hot is our world! It’s a popular sentence people speak out loud today. I’ll say yes to Global Warming. We are part of the biggest world’s problem. The earth has higher temperature, it must have many bad factors and we, everybody, make it happen without being unaware. There are too main causes activating Global Warming. First, it is “water pollution”. And second, it is the “forest losses.” If we could have been more responsible for the earth, Global Warming would have never happened. Don’t take it too seriously, I am peaceful.

    Fuji Provia (120, 100 iso) user-review

    The Fuji Provia is one of my favourite slide films next to the Fuji Velvia. First of all: All Fuji slides are amazing! The colours are rich, saturated and simply brilliant! I always cross process my Fuji slides to give the pictures an extra kick of colour.

    Xochimilco (Mexico City)

    Xochimilco is one of the many neighborhoods in Mexico City, but it isn’t just any neighborhood, it’s one of the most fantastic places in Mexico City. It's a zone that maintains a lot of colorful, fantastic, and fun traditions. The most interesting thing about Xochimilco probably is the many water channels with houses, “chinampas” (chinampas are pieces of land that are put into a lake to get some more place to live in or plant crops.

    Burnham Park

    Laid-back Baguio locals may wax nostalgic about their home city's cooler temperatures and easy traffic along Session Road back in the 1980s and decades before, but Burnham Park -the heart of how I remember this century-old mountain city located 250 kilometers north of Manila - still retains much of its rusticity and charisma.

    Spreepark (Berlin, Germany)

    On the outskirts of Berlin in the heart of the Treptow district, lies the remnants of what was once the only amusement park in the former German Democratic Republic (Deutsche Demokratische Republik, or East Germany). Built amidst a forested area known as the Plänterwald along the banks of the river Spree, the park was opened in 1969 as "Kulturpark".
