    Fontana di Trevi

    Hasn't anyone heard of this famous wishing fountain before? You might at least see it in movies from America to Italy to Hong Kong or in music videos or on fashion shots. Although it may or may not be the most beautiful fountain in Rome, but it is without doubt the most famous and packed with tourists and locals. It is said that it became famous after

    Historical Downtown

    I know you boys and girls think you had visited a city, maybe you think you live in a city, a big city... someone must tell you the truth: you have never been in a city if you don't know Mexico City. And the place to be is the Historical Downtown.

    Orphanage and Thai funeral

    I met a group consisting of 12 people in Chiang Mai that I was to be leading for the next 2 1/2 weeks at the orphanage. We left civilization and made our way up north, through emerald hills and winding roads, to fang where kids' orphanage lies. It's always strange leading a group of people to a place you've never visited before but I went with the flow and all was well.

Whatever you're looking for whether it be food, clothes, souvenirs or anything else in between, this would be the place to go. Haggling is a norm so feel free to bargain all you want.

    Kai Yamada is having fun with plastic. Cameras, that is. "The reason I like shooting with plastic cameras is for the simplicity. Working with the Diana, or Holga or whatever, strips down photography to the essentials. You, the subject, a simple lens to refract the image onto a medium. It doesn’t get any plainer than that!"

    Of Seagulls & Swollen Hearts : Q&A with Liad Cohen

    Multiple-exposure images are easy to do, but quite difficult to pull off. Among the few who can master this trick effectively is Liad Cohen, LSI’s US Online Coordinator, and more importantly, a passionate Lomographer based in New York City. Besides taking long walks with his camera, he likes to write, play the guitar, and read (??Good Omens??, ??The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle??, ??Rule of the Bone??). He enjoys good movies (??Into the Wild??, ??Wristcutters??, ??Rocket Science??, ??Brotherhood of the Wolf??) and good music as well – his latest picks are ??In Rainbows by Radiohead??, and ??Mercy … by Ours??. A man of substance, talent, and good taste – that’s Liad Cohen for you!

    When you are doing laundry, it's always best to separate colors... that is, unless you're accidentally washing your film in your pants pocket! Here is the tale of how "Keren Fedida":http://www.flickr.com/photos/yummiliondragon/sets/72157603493183389/ went to "Phagwa":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holi 2008 with her Holga, and accidentally washed her film.
