    Princes Street Gardens

    Princes Street Gardens, right in the centre of Edinburgh, sandwiched between one of the busiest shopping streets in Scotland, the railway line and station and some pretty ancient and eerie graveyards, all overlooked by the stunning and historic Edinburgh Castle, perched up on its black volcanic rock.

    Gateway Of India

    Me and another gal pal decided to visit Churchgate apart from the normal shopping rout in Mumbai usually done by our colleagues. Taking the train (the busiest rail service in the world) was really surprising and was not what we had in mind. You must be thinking we are crazy not to take the taxi straight but it was a breeze apart from buying the ticket!! Although the cabin was old and packed with lots of people, it never got stinky and the ceiling was full of fans blowing. The ride was joyous and smooth. And so we

    Science Museum

    The science museum in London is a great place because it's very interesting about many different things and because you can take pictures of almost everything you see! :) It's a way of learning many new things about science and what I prefer is the big room of planes, cars and space! Another very interesting part is about optics and history of photography and so many other different subjects.

    Hong Kong on Fuji Velvia

    The day before yesterday I had lunch in Tsim Sha Tsui, wonderful lamb curry, chicken karahi and chappatis, then (energy boosted) walked to the star ferry, sat on the waves, took a rusty old tram to western market, stood and walked admiring Sheung Wan and all the small alleys with dried fish stalls, barbers, fruit and vegetables, meat laid out in fresh reds, spices and nuts in huge baskets... and I emptied my roll of film, loaded another, walked high up to the mid levels, then down through Soho...sat for an hour at pacific coffee drinking a reasonable latte and reading my Elliott Smith book.

    Callot frescos

    When Remy Callot died in 2001, his house was intended for destruction to build a traffic circle. But Remy Callot had spent his retirement to decorate his garden's walls with mosaic. So, in 2006, "the house of the fool" as it was called, was finally destroyed but walls were preserved and now, instead of a roundabout, it is question to build a museum of Art Brut. I truly hope it will!

    Georgia Guide Stones

    A strange and mysterious place, surrounded by evil forces, sits upon a high hilltop in eastern Georgia, USA. What is this place? Some call it America's Stonehenge. Some call it the work of the devil. People came from far and wide to receive psychic messages from it. The locals ignore it. It is, The Georgia Guide Stones.

    Shanghai

    Shanghai is one crazy city. It's an exciting and interesting place that, although is really hectic, can have an eerie silence. I guess this is because the streets are patrolled by military and the Chinese are generally a very polite bunch of people.

  • Weird Easter Tradition

    Weird Easter Tradition

    It is a little bit weird so don't laugh, please. Well, my family had this old tradition: hiding a lot of eggs over the house for the kids for searching and then later seeking them. The kids work the whole morning till they find the eggs and eat them. But you ask, "Ok, but everybody does it". The difference here is, the Easter character isn't the rabbit (here you can see our rabbit that loves another holiday, the rabbit thinks he is Santa, but well, he had his own problems, ok?). So, back to my history, our Easter character is that little dwarf like creature from "Snow White movie". Do you know him? That very little and very old person who saved the Snow White from a terrible fate: the wedding with that boring prince from a sort of kingdom about what you never heard before. Anyway, they are the little guys who deliver theses delicious chocolate eggs and stuff to the kids of my family. It's weird, but it's true. They live in our garden working on some stuff around the year, but during the Easter they prepare and hide the eggs for us. You can search for those little guys right here, near my house in Taubaté, Sao Paulo: the Taubaté's Horto Municipal (city garden), a beautiful garden and rain forest animals' sanctuary, with little lakes and a lot of bushes and small trees, a perfect place to hide some chocolate eggs for your children or spend your time with Lomography.

    Philippine Tricycle

    We all know (well most people) that the quintessential Philippine way of getting around is with the legendary Jeepney. However it is unavoidable that in some cases that we would need to go someplace that won't have the luxury of space. We would require something a little more compact which is what the Philippine tricycle is all about. It is basically a cheap motorcycle (in same cases just a bicycle) welded with an aluminium sidecar.

    Shi Lin Night Market

    Beyond a doubt, Shi Lin Night Market is one of the most famous night markets in Taipei, making it a long-time favorite among residents and tourists, locals and foreigners. When you go to Shi Lin Night Market, be sure not to eat beforehand. The food there is simply too delicious to pass up. The prices are low, the servings are generous and the variety seems endless - cold, hot, sweet, sour, salty, spicy, fish, fowl; if it can be eaten, they probably have it. Don't worry about not being able to find what you want to eat. Rather, worry that you might not be able to finish everything you want.

    Gardens of Cimiez

    The gardens of Cimiez, near of the Monastery (see other location) is a beautiful place for relaxing in a green and quiet space in the city. The main part of this garden is an olive grove where you can rest under the shadow of a giant and very old olive-tree, and take a little sunbath and pictures too! The place is well known for the people of Nice, and on week-ends you'll see all families coming with their picnic and the children are playing football, frisbee, etc.... The second part of the garden is more a "rose grove" where you can admire the great flowers the monks are cultivating since the XVIth century and admire also the great view over the whole east-side of the city of Nice. The point of view from this hill over the city is just great, and that is why the Romans founded their first city on this hill (named "Cemenellum") in the 4th century.... If you're in Nice during the summer, don't miss the Nice Jazz Festival taking place in the Olive grove of Cimiez, with great musicians in a beautiful place!

    Market in Udine

    This is a market in Udine, Italy. It takes place every week on Monday. It was the first time I went there and wow, I found lots of people and lots of objects to be shot from the hip. Voices everywhere, Chinese everywhere with their "out of market" prices. I found a beggar seated down on the ground and I gave him 20 cents then I took a shot of him. This is a type of life I like to shoot with my Lomo, the simple life of simple people rushing between the stands.

    Long before the days of the package holiday and the budget airline, when British were more restricted in where they could spend their summer holiday, the east coast of England from the Wash up to Hull was a tourist Mecca of beach resorts and holiday camps. In the fifties, sixties and seventies many families chose to spend two weeks at one of the famous beach resorts on the Lincolnshire coast, one of the most popular being Mablethorpe.

    Praia da Lagoinha do Leste

    This beach is located on the south east side of the Island of Florianopolis. There is no road that you can take to the beach, and depending where you start it is a half mile to a mile walk to get there. You can take a little ferry boat from one of the closer more accessible beaches if that is your fancy as well.

    Genova is a beautiful city but don't try to visit it with six friends with different desires; one wants to have a walk on the harbor to see the boat where Roman Polanski shot Pirates, another wants to risk his life visiting little street where you can lose yourself among bad virtues girls, a dreamer wants to saunter on the Palazzi street dreaming about a rich destiny.

    Park Güell

    Park Güell is definitely one of the highlights of Barcelona. Constructed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi back in the years 1900-1914, this park offers you a small peak into the mind of Gaudi and what inspires his art. You will see how he moulded and shaped everything from benches to ceilings and walls in the form of nature...various animals, leaves and waves. As you enter the park (which is enormous), you are entranced by all the gorgeous mosaic tiles that cover nearly EVERYTHING, including the famous dragon which seems to be guarding the park.

    Museum of Rare Stones

    Stones are cold and often not so interesting, but one man, named Vaclovas Intas, did get the feeling, that stones have a lot more to tell us than our drunk partners in local pubs on Friday nights. That's why he did collect stones from all over the world into one place in Lithuania's north side, the town, called Mosedis.
