    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!

    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.

    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.

    Leaving Hong Kong, we managed to get some snacks for the trip and decided to get on the road too early rather than too late so we hopped on the tube. Took the KCR out to the last stop then followed the masses through immigration and customs and found ourselves spewed out in Shenzhen, China!!

    Schützenfest

    The Hanoverian Schützenfest is the biggest event in summer. Although all small cities, townships and villages around Hanover have their own Schützenfeste, not one of them can be compared with the event in Hanover. They all have one in common: the shooting clubs of the towns have shooting matches to determine their champion shooters (Schützenkönig/königin, Bürgerkönig, Jugendkönig). In a huge procession these champions are then celebrated.

    Lamesa Eco Park

    At the heart of the urban jungle of Quezon City lies a real jungle of sorts. Rehabilitated and repackaged for families, the Lamesa Dam is now known as the Lamesa Eco Park. Growing up near the place we used to run around the lush vast plains not minding the dangers the steep cliffs posted. Happy times but in the interest of political correctness everything is safe there now as I visited a few weeks back.

    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.

    Ski Dubai

    The Emirates are too over the top to be comprehended by a simple mind like me. But one thing I understood perfectly so far: deliver entertainment and sensations no matter of the costs. One perfect example for this is the ski Dubai! As we know, Dubai is in the middle of the desert! Desert equals sun equals heat equals no snow equals question. Answer: the sheikhs just build an amusement dome where there is a ski-world.

If you need a break from the harmonious and perfect and measured and all-in-its-place renaissance beauty, you need to come over here.

    Alcatraz prison

    Alcatraz is a small island across from the city of San Francisco. It used to be a place for the criminals who had committed a very serious crime, such as Al Capone. Now this place has become a tourist spot. It is very cold there and it's really even not far from the city, but this place makes you feel a bit creepy and lonely at the same time. This place is pretty old but they are doing a very great job to preserve a lot of old buildings and old facilities. It's like a museum where you can walk around and explore on your own. The museum provides the tourists with all the information one could need and also with information assistant if necessary. For example, the assistant narrates about this place and also guides you around where to go. There is a very well done graphic map that keeps you from getting lost. Is it a fun place to go? No, I think this place would be more educational and adventurous. When I got out of this place I felt that, I will never do anything wrong and end up in the prison like

    Vancouver was my first trip alone, and the trip that I'll never ever forget. I spent one month there studying and sight-seeing. If you think of traveling to study English, definitely you have to go to Vancouver, it's a great place to study. Besides that, it's a great city for people who want to have everything around them.

    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?

    Dour Festival

    Hello dear lomographers! My name is Kim and I come from Belgium. One of the smallest countries in Europe! Nevertheless we have lots of things to offer the inhabitants as well as the ones who decide to come by our wonderful country. Festivals are a part of the amazing entertainment we have. The biggest one is the Werchter festival in the Flammish part of Belgium, another one and much smaller is the Rhâââ Lovely festival. An entirely free Live Nations festival with an amazing program for those who are fond of alternative rock music (Explosion in the Sky, Migala, Matt Elliott performed there...).

    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.

    Nasher Sculpture Garden

    If you're a fan of sculptures, this is the place for you! The Nasher Sculpture garden at the Dallas Museum of Art is a lomographer's paradise. On a bright, sunny day, even the original fisheye can enjoy itself! Thursday evenings relax in the cool shadow of downtown with a bottle of wine, a close friend or just your lomo and settle in for some sweet jazz and excellent people watching.

    Bridgeport

    Bridgeport, Connecticut may well be the street photographer's dream. It's a poor city; "hardscrabble" is a term often used to describe it; along with "blue-color", "down-on-its-heels", "seedy", and "shaky". Let's face it, it's not dolled up nor is it sanitized - it's really ugly and it's real. It's a perfect laboratory for the fan of grit and those who search for the sublime amidst the mundane. But even a place as seemingly hopeless as Bridgeport is subject to gentrification and revitalization. Enterprise zones, development projects, eminent domain abuse - all are rapidly working their protean magic across the cityscape. Many of my favorite places for shooting have already mutated and changed; the television graveyard, the old trucks that dotted the vacant lots - all are gone. Former factories are turning into offices and loft condominiums, so you got to get there soon. Owners of blighted lots and abandoned warehouses are suddenly taking an interest in their property, chasing off itinerant photographers and locking the gates behind. You can still catch some unusual graffiti - at least if it's on public property.

    Chiufen Town

    Chiufen Town is a small and beautiful town, located on a mountainside overlooking the Pacific Ocean and is one of Taiwan's cultural treasures. A visit there offers a chance to escape from the city and to imagine what life was like many years ago. You can feel the old atmosphere here. The old brick buildings offer a charming, relaxed view. The narrow, stone alleyways and steep stairways suggest an old-fashioned way of living. The whole place has a colorful and romantic air about it.

    Blue Lagoon

    Iceland surely is a strange place. One of the most astonishing sites is the blue lagoon. Well. It's a hot thermal source. But it's more than that. It lay in the middle of a field of volcanic stones, a rough moon-like field. The Bath is close to the seaside, that's why there are Sea-Minerals in the water and on you. It's a habit to put a white mineral-paste on you skin.

    Gamla Stan in Stockholm

    A couple of weeks ago I went to Stockholm. It was freezing cold, but very charming. I fell immediately in love with the heart of Stockholm, Gamla Stan. The name derives from the term "gamla staden", which literally means Old Town. On the maps and in the literature from the mid 19th century, however, it was being called "staden mellan broarna" ("the city between the bridges") or staden inom broarna ("the city within the bridges"). This is not surprising, since the city of Stockholm was built on islands and Gamla Stan is the oldest and central part of the settlements.
