    Russian church

    The Russian community in Nice has always been important since the second half of XIXth century. Nice began its career as a touristy city and the English and Russian people were the first to be attracted by the "angel bay" ("baie des anges") of Nice. Among the Russian community was the mother of the Russian Tzar Nicolas II, Marie Feorodovna and she fell in love with this city. 1903 she decided to build an orthodox Russian church.

    Old town

    Everybody has a child in them who longs for fairy tales, ghost stories and thrilling legends. One of the dearest and most charming places for me is my hometown Tallinn and its romantic medieval city-center. Here almost every house or corner has a legend or more. On your journey through the city you`ll definitely meet water-goblins, the city`s guardian Old Thomas, Stout Margaret and even devil himself.

    Métropolitain

    I love to take pictures in and of the Métro. I use it everyday and I like it, but I also hate it when there are too many people. And there are often a lot of people but I like to take pictures in the early morning or late in the night time when the Metro is empty.

    Día de Muertos

    Tepotzotlán is a place, a little colonial town, near México City… but most important is this day. November 1 & 2, Día de Muertos, Day of the Dead; the day when people that has left us in this side of the road visits us to have a drink at our table. In fact, you can take part of the festivity at almost any place at México. One of the must important traditions on this day is the offering; it acquires different characteristics at different locations. At Tepotzotlán, some of the youngsters of the town organize a macro offering with lots of skeletons and skulls in every size and material (sugar, paper and clay).

    Tampico

    Tampico - it`s the strangest city I've ever visited. I was there on a 4 day business trip, so I didn't really have time to lomograph the city... It was an amazing mixture of decay and modernity: abandoned buildings everywhere, side by side with shiny furbished buildings. I made a mental map of the city, while walking around it. On the last day, I escaped from work at the dinnertime and racing against the time I shot 2 rolls of the city. The map is still in my mind, waiting for the moment until I`m back in Tampico.

    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.

    Well this sounds a bit like a boring lomolocation - garden, flowers, old people, tourists. But I want you to first read this text (that took me hours to write!) and do not skip the first paragraph with the historic facts! Then you will see why I like this location and why it is worth to pay a visit.

    Mount Ulriken

    As a student of Scandinavian languages and literature I came to Bergen in October this year to work on my final thesis about a contemporary Norwegian author. I had been granted a scholarship by the state of Norway, which allowed me to stay in Bergen for three month and do my research at the local university. Everybody who has been through writing his or her final thesis for university knows what a frightening project that can be. Have my studies really provided me with the scientific competence I need to write such a work? Is my topic good enough? Will I find the material I need? Will I have enough time?

    On mission trips, I and 9 other youth built two houses in two weeks. These houses are located in Fuerzas Unidas, Honduras. The most beautiful place on Earth. It is a poor, poor country, and a poor, poor area, but you can see the entire city of Teguz from the top of Fuerzas Undias. A view that Americans would pay 2 million dollars for. The people are the most blessed people I've ever met. They have no money, but they have love, love for each other, and love for the LORD.

    Harajuku

    Not for the faint-hearted, Harajuku lies between Shibuya and Yoyogi in the japanese metropolis, Tokyo. On any day of the week you will find the small area full of people either shopping, eating or just hanging around looking painfully cool. Packed with expensive and exclusive boutiques as well as more affordable shops this is the place to come if you want to be "seen".

    There is a sea shell store in Los Fresnos, TX. Outside the store is a HUGE undersea reef sculpture. Every time I go back to shoot more pictures, I discover something new. Just for going inside the store, you get a free seashell necklace. They sell every kind of shell imaginable including live hermit crabs. They also serve ice cream at the snack bar!

    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.

    Harajuku is arguably the most lomographic place in the whole Tokyo. I can't remember which but on either day you're bound to find one of these AMAZING kids out there all decked and parading around. It's X-Japan or Tokyo XPRO'ed.

    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.

    If the city is kidnapping you, the buildings across your job place throw away the sun to the twilight zone, the summer sky is a stranger for your eyes, and your face, legs, arms and the whole skin over your body have the colour of bones; bound to the insane tv addiction, internet and other miracles, then you urgently need to take yourself away to sunniest, purest and natural areas.

    Sagrada Familia

    I haven't had so much experience with South-Europe so far. I was always more attached to the east and far-east. But Barcelona certainly changed my mind about what there is to expect from the south. I mean we don't even have to mention the food! I live with a Spanish girl and she constantly gets the finest oil and ham from her parents. And we don't have to mention the weather, I rather not, I live in Hamburg!

    Cairo

    My friend David, Maya and I arrived in Cairo early in the morning, hailed a taxi and set off to the Talat Harb area to look for hotels. Our taxi driver (working on commission basis) drove us to his hotel where we were dragged in, tiredness and the thought of a bed overweighed our energy to look for another one. The hotel was cheap but awful. The rooms were dirty and the English man who run it was frankly the biggest asshole I have met in my travels. Anyways, we checked in, caught a few hours of sleep and got up for a late breakfast. David stayed in bed all day while Maya and I went to explore Cairo.
