    In a place where culture, history, fire and tradition are moulding unique pieces made of clay and cooked in giant oven, you'll be able to be in touch with the rich Brazilian past. The ceramics handcraftsmanship is alive inside theses houses, old red brick ovens and mountains. A beautiful place surrounded by mountains (Serra do Mar, Serra da Mantiqueira and Serra da Quebra-Cangalha). The city starts where once was an old King's warehouse, in the middle of the Estrada Real (the road where gold was transported to the Port, in Paraty-RJ).

  • Temples of Angkor

    Temples of Angkor

    It's one of the most beautiful complexes of ancient temples in Southeast Asia. The temples of Angkor, in Cambodia, built by the Khmer civilization between 802 and 1220 AD, represent one of humankind's most astonishing and enduring architectural achievements. From Angkor the Khmer kings ruled over a vast domain that reached from Vietnam to China to the Bay of Bengal. There are more than 100 stone temples in all. Angkor Wat honours the Hindu god Vishnu and is a symbolic representation of Hindu cosmology, consisting of an enormous temple symbolizing the mythic Mt. Meru, its five inter-nested rectangular walls and moats represent chains of mountains and the cosmic ocean. Then I can suggest the smiling Bayon, this is one of the most popular spots and, facing east, it is mostly visited in the morning. A good reason to visit in the afternoon! All those friendly faces of Avalokiteshvara certainly make you feel good.

    Train Station - Eugenio Lefreve

    Up to the mountains, up to the sky. Santo Antonio do Pinhal, in the middle of Serra da Mantiqueira, is a beautiful little city. With waterfalls, hiking spots, restaurants, and small hotels, the city is perfect place to stay and joy the altitude (almost 1.300 m) and the nature. But the best place to go with your Lomos is the Train Station, where you can eat, drink hot coffee and feel like you travel back through time, with old architecture and the beautiful gardens. Walk through the train tracks, smell the cold air, visit the Holy Mother Statue, where you can see the entire valley ahead. What a splendid view. Winter is the best time to go there. But even in the summer you can feel the great weather of the mountains. But watch out, the train is coming and you don't want to be in front of it.

    Matala

    Have you ever been in Greece? No?! Then it's time to do that, because Greece has lots of good things for you... And if you choose to make a sightseeing-trip to Crete Island which is very friendly to the tourists from the whole world, do not hesitate to rent a car and take a little road to the south of the island. To be precise, go to Matala village, which is about 75 kilometers south-west of Heraklion (or Iraklion), the center (or capital) of Crete island.

    Mamac

    The MAMAC (Museum of Modern Art and Contemporary Art) was created by the architects Yves Bayard and Henri Vidal, and was inaugurated on June/ 21/ 1980. It is located at the centre of Nice, in the heart of Acropolis. It consists of four towers of 20 meters which are connected by glazed footbridges on a height of 30 metres. The buildings have 4000 m² for nine showrooms on three levels, plus a level terrace. It's a very nice building and I like to take pics of it.

    This is the place where it all began, the place where I started my first Lomographic adventure. The place is situated on Merang Beach, 40km up north from Kuala Terengganu on the east coast of Malaysia. You can go there by car, by bus or even by air. It is run by a friendly family of a local owner. It caters for family, group activities and backpackers with different range of rooms to suit everyone's budget.

    Sagrada Familia in night

    The well-known Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is perhaps one of the last great "century's constructions" of a cathedral, and like in the middle-ages the construction lasts for over then a century now (since 1882!!) and it's still not finished... If you want the whole story about the Sagrada, have a look at the official website (link below) but if you're in Barcelona, you must go visit the place, and the best moment for me is during the night! Until midnight, the cathedral lights are on, and the place takes a different face from the day, much more impressive, the shadows and colours of the light gives you the impression of a living beast in the middle of the city: it's alive!! Turn around the whole building and it will change its face, staring at you at every moment with a different face! :) It's a fascinating experience to visit this huge building at night, very different from the day (but it's very impressing at daylight too!) and gives you the opportunity to make cool pictures, of course!

    Kaunas

    First of all, I am living in this city at the moment, so there is no chance that you will not meet me if you're coming (smiling). Ok, the city is interesting - first of all, it is not so very tourist-like, but there are lots of things to see. Museums (even the Museum of Devils), theaters, cinemas, photo-shops (where a good film costs around 2 euros and the development of the film is only 80 cents) and of course the main streets.

    Salmon River

    Nestled up in northern Idaho runs the Salmon River. The middle section of the rivers is world famous (whether you've heard of it or not) for its white water rapids and scenery. One must set sail from the designated spot and the nearest outtake area is about 4 days float, if you move quick, and by quick I mean the speed of the water which is of course how fast everyone goes.

    Blue Ridge Mountains

    Right before school had resumed, my father and I took a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. We went hiking every day in the mountains. These pictures are from when we reached the summit of Sugar Mountain. It was a gorgeous day as we ate wild blueberries and braced ourselves from the fierce winds against the sharp boulders.

    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.

    Council of Europe

    Now this is an interesting place. The council of Europe is important, but nobody really knows what it is about. It invented the blue European flag with golden stars, but the European Union made it big. In the council are all European countries involved. Only Belarussia is out of the game. But more exciting than the political haze is the funky interior of the building made in the seventies.

    Mingė village

    Ok, this story is very funny. First of all, I am going to talk about a little village in south western part of Lithuania, near the Minija river, which flows through the Klaipeda town (third town in Lithuania, near the Baltic Sea). The village is really small, there are about 30 houses and the same amount of native families, living there... so where is the whole fun? First of all, there are no streets in this village.

    Maple Hill Park. It was a typical extremely hot summer day here in Southern California. My mom wanted to conserve energy so she turned off the air-conditioning in the middle of July!!! Who doesn't have their air-conditioning turned on in 110 degree Fahrenheit weather? Well, as a solution my older brother and sister and I went to Maple Hill Park in our huge neighborhood.

    False Creek Ferries

    I love the ferries that operate on False Creek in the heart of Vancouver. Looking down on False Creek from one of the 3 bridges that connect Downtown Vancouver to Vancouver West they dart about the inlet like water boatmen skating on a pond. False Creek not only attracts the tourists and day-trippers that come to town for an amusing diversion on the water but it also is much loved by the local residents of this fabulous and unique city. False Creek is surrounded by some of the city's most enticing attractions.

    Kinder Olympics - Luxembourg Kindergarten

    Don't be so broadminded - sports can be fun! And it is, especially in one hidden place in Luxembourg. It's the kindergarten in the heart of Luxembourg, where you can participate in KINDER OLYMPICS. Keep that in mind! Let the competition begin!!! First of all, the toy-horse race - very good for your back muscles, releases the pain from your head. It even can help working out with your hands, as you have to hold very tight not to fall down from it. But I could not run till the finish line - my horse was stuck and did not want to move... Second, the mind-and-wisdom activity - the crazy snail with numbers.

    I was able to visit Gaziantep last month. The city has been named as the Paris of the Southeast recently. And of course with my LC-A it was fully a discovery. Old town, castle, incredible ‘zeugma’ the ancient city mosaics, excellent food and much more. On that trip my boss chose a little hotel called ‘Anatolian Houses’: the traditional old houses which are connected together with a common court yard, restored and furnished very stylishly.

    Vicentina Aranha Hospital

    It used to be a geriatric hospital once, long-long-long time ago and was a place to treat breathing issues. By now it's closed and abandoned. A very impressive place, located on very rich neighborhood in São José dos Campos. The Vicentina Aranha hospital started its activities in 1914 and closed its doors in 2004, after 90 years saving peoples life.

    The Promenade des Anglais (literally the Englishman's promenade) is one of the main places to see if you stay in Nice. It's the whole coastal pedestrian walk along the seafront in Nice where you can admire the beautiful landscape of what is called the Baie des Anges, the Angel's bay.

    These shots were taken at the Cruz to the Castillo de Santa Catalina at Jaén city. Jaén city is situated 82 km from Granada and you can get the buses to drive there every half hour in the bus-station at Granada and the trip takes around one hour. The city has a lots of things to lomo and to see and one of those things is the cross (see my photos) that is situated on top of the highest mountain near the city. On this place it is possible to see the whole town of Jaén, all the surrounding mountains and landscape with olive trees.

    Do you know Wese-renaissance? No? Okay... You surely know Renaissance and Weser is a river in lower Saxony, Germany. Along River Weser were built up lots of houses, churches and castles during the era of renaissance. For example Saint Martins Church in Stadthagen. I like this church! It is very big if you compare it to the size of Stadthagen and you can see it from everywhere when you get closer to Stadthagen. It really dominates the skyline.

    Wigginton Tournament

    Every year the eleven a side girls football team that my daughter plays for - Darlington Spraire Lasses u16s, goes to compete in several tournaments that begin once the league season has finished. Tournaments are often a way for clubs to raise finances and widen their profile and builds relationships that can cross into league tie ups.
