    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.

    Reunion Island

    One of my favorite spots to shoot is the Reunion Island. It's an island where my family comes from. It lies in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar. The island is so beautiful and all the people I know who went to there fell in love with it.

    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.

    Landayan

    It was Good Friday when I first saw this marketplace. It is summer, and it is extra hot and humid. Umbrellas are everywhere. People came in droves to visit the miraculous church of St. Sepulcro. The streets leading to the church were buzzing with all the activity - quite the opposite inside the church.

    Mountains

    MOUNTAINS. This goes hand in hand with forests, I love to travel to mountains whenever & wherever I can. Always photogenic and awe-inspiring summer or winter gotta have 'em near me. Playing and sliding on snow. Hiking, planning trips and looking at them in books and on maps, going to ranges I have only seen in print. Basking in their glow (sometimes getting punished by their elements) getting into the silence of the backcountry on a cold winter morning. I live in a city nestled by them & would go crazy if I wasn't. Not to mention: my job involves being in the mountains nonstop (I shoot snowboarding professionally) in the winter time. I need them!!!

    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.

    Chiang Mai

    Flooded chiang mai. I touched down in Chiang Mai and a gorgeous afternoon greeted me. Managed to knock 50 baht off my room price and rested until evening descended. I decided to head to the night market for some dinner...got half way there and suddenly the rumors I'd been hearing came back to me: Chiang Mai was flooded!! I'd heard it a few times but I guess it didn't really sink in until now! People were wading through waist-deep water....the night market was definitely out! I had no choice but to return to the seedy part of town and find a semi-decent restaurant.

    Food market at Barbés

    If you`re in Paris for a longer time, there`s no way getting round the markets here. My favourite market is the one at Barb`s every Saturday and Wednesday, a magic place where delicious fruits and vegetables, orientalic marketing strategies and dirt are somehow mixed into a tasty cocktail. Be sure to go there between 1 and 2 on the afternoon for supercheapo offers (2 kilo 1 euro yeah!). Also check out the other stuff they sell and have a look at the electric glittering womens underwear from Syria. On your way back home, be sure to go by TATI on the corner and have some converse shoes for 10 eurobucks. There are lots of wedding shops with unforgettable shoe designs for men and women too. If you want to take pictures on the market, be sure to do it secretely (special hip shot mission) or to ask very

    When: Best in October, There is a Camel-Fair nearby Just imagine that you are in the middle of the North-Indian Desert. Just for Fun! Then you jump into a Hindu-Temple. Because there is not anything else to do and why are you in India anyway? Like me. We wanted to go to a city which streets had been flooded. But this mischief brought me to the place that flooded my imagination. The Karni Mata Temple close to Bikaner is off from any travel-route, a diamond among travelers.

    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.

    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!

    Jalan Petaling in Chinatown

    I recently visited Kuala Lumpur for a holiday, and I loved it! Aside from the popular tourist must-sees like the Petronas and Menara Towers and the Detaran Merdeka, it is a tourist must to visit all the shops around (if you have time). Kuala Lumpur is a shopping heaven. It's a good place for bargaining - especially for electronics.

    Kaunas Jazz festival

    Festivals are always good. Why? Because you can change the routine of your day by dancing, singing and of course doing all the crazy LOMO things in the crowd. Kaunas Jazz festival started even in 1991 and today it is one of the biggest that kind of festivals not only in Lithuania, but even in the Eastern Europe.

    Islands Borromeo

    On the South part of Lake Maggiore, there are three jewels called Borromées Islands: Isola Bella, Isola Superiore and Isola Madre. Lake Maggiore is the second largest of Italian lakes (65 km long, 2-4.5 km wide and 370 m deep in its maximum depth) but may rank first in beauty. It is an internationally famous resort of Europe, with its picturesque and spectacular landscape, mild climate and luxuriant vegetation. The climate favors a beautiful botanic garden on the lake shore, with exotic and rare plants including even those from the subtropical zone. The lake has many islands and some of them are famous for their lovely parks and pretty villas.

    Abandoned plants and mills

    Close to Lisbon, in the south side of Tejo River you find an industrial city called Barreiro. It is a city that during many years lived of the great plants and industries that in middle of the 60's had been built there. Currently already almost all the plants have been locked up or are not active, but the city continues with the heavy inheritance of being one of the places most polluted of the country.

    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.

    Neues Institutsgebäude NIG

    If you`re into late 70's asbest-architecture, this is the place for you. Some clear instructions: enter this University building preferably in the evening when there are no more lazy students around. Have a 50 cent coffee at one of the automats. Say hi to one of the people lying around there. Go to the entrance hall again and get ready for an unforgettable adventure! Step into the grand PATERNOSTER elevator (this thing is made out of wood and goes up and down with crazy mechanics) and occupy yourself by reading the students paroles for vegan food. Get transported to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor and do not descend. When you`re reaching the 5th floor, a sign (see image) will tell you to get the hell off the elevator. The sign somehow signifies that horrible things may happen. But you`ll stay and become a hero. Hold your plastic cup tight. Catch your last breath. Load your camera and take some pictures of your awestruck face. Nuff said, you`ll see for yourself, my friend!

    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.
