    Palanga Amber Park Museum

    Amber is Lithuania's gold and this museum holds every kind of amber. This time we visited this park early in the morning, so we where alone. It's a nice feeling when you can hear only the birds and how waves are breaking in to the beach. Amber Museum Park is huge - it starts from the main street of Palanga town and goes till the beach.

    Creux du Van

    Best time to go there is in the summer months, since you got to reach the top of the mountain walking up. Good shoes and not too much of backpack to carry is an important tip. Ah yes and even if it's Switzerland, don't forget to carry one or two bottles of water with you. There are not too many fountains in the region.

    Seoul in Night

    Seoul is maybe not such a giant city as Tokyo or Shanghai, but it is still an Asian metropolis of its own kind. This is best seen, when walking through the streets at night. It makes bling-bling and flashes everywhere, even in the remotest of the areas.

    World Light Expo 2007

    At the corner of the barren highway that is Coastal Road you would see some odd looking shapes peeking over the hastily constructed fences. But by the night fall these shapes come to life in a spectacular display of lomographic glory. Lights of different hues light up Chinese structures made from everyday trinkets like plates, spoons, cd's, what ever you have. Just don't forget to bring films at least at ISO 400. Or a gigantic flash. If it gets too hot, you can also visit the ice light show, where it is minus 18 degrees. Just don't bring your gear inside.

    Earth is our motherland, so we have to be good and not waste it. But today all we hear is pollution, greenhouse effect and so on... What to do? The answer is simple - even today, when technology is going straight forward, we can live without hurting the Fauna and Flora duo.

  • Phnom Penh

    Phnom Penh

    I was fascinated by this city with temples and houses in Indochina style. It's a little pearl in Southeast Asia and its tragic recent past seems to undermine, but not destroy its beauty and life. You can be attacked by tuk tuk drivers and people but you can also see young Buddhist monk with in their orange, yellow and brown color clothing walking in silence. I believe it was the hottest time of the year, and walking around, even for just 5 mins, in 40C heat is a tough task! Even though parts of the city were messy a lot of it was beautiful, including areas by the lake and by the river. The people were great too!

  • Bolinao

    2008-04-27 #places

    Bolinao is on the north eastern portion of the Philippines' biggest island Luzon. A 6 hour bus ride takes one to this beach paradise which thank goodness has not yet been fully discovered by humanity though it seems to be on the verge. I love that it has generally remained quiet and clean. Hopefully it will never be turned into a beach that is invaded by commercialization.

    Santo Antônio do Pinhal

    Feel the mountains' fresh air. Hear the sound of nature. Taste the flavor of this little place called Santo Antonio do Pinhal, a town on the mountains, where the local way of life is the law. And Santo Antonio is affordable (you don't need much money to eat or stay well there).

    Kaunas Days Festival

    Kaunas - is the second largest city in Lithuania, which was even the capital of Lithuania lots of years ago. Today this is a city, known for its basketball club "Žalgiris", basketball player Arvydas Sabonis and so on. So it is so natural, that the city with such history has got its own festival, which is called the "Kaunas' Days" festival (sometimes it is called only the "Day", not "Days").

    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.

    The Wall - Live House

    The Wall was opened by the Live House, the independent trade mark, the phonograph record line and by some of independent music singers. Why is it called "The Wall"? "The Wall" was one of the albums of Pink Floyd. It is the spirit of rock. If you are a fan of rock, you have to come here to The Wall. Live performances by local and foreign bands, arranged on Friday and Saturday nights, on a specific holiday and so on, other time intervals non periodically conduct the activities.

    Bullring and Selfridges Building

    The Bullring is home to two great loves in life: shopping and fine architecture. If it had nothing but camera shops held within then we would happily die there. Outside it looks beautiful and inside they sell you things to enhance your own fantastic life.

    Lis Na Ree Resort

    I would like to introduce the Lis Na Ree resorts to the people who plan to overnight in Cherating, Kuantan. The reason why I like this resort so much is because it is very close to the beach. Besides that, it also has a goat farm right in front of the hotel, I feel like I'm back in the nature! Just love the feeling of this resort.

  • Valencia

    written by lomokim on 2008-04-27 #places

    Valencia is a city next to the beach where lots of Spanish and foreign students are living. Therefore it never lacks of animation. First of all, the city is amazing in an architectural point of view. Indeed, the main river, called the Turia, has been dried because of flood problems and they decided to make a huge park inside.

    The Old Part of Cairo - The Islamic Quarter

    Take your small and discreet LC-A and leave the noisy and glittering Cornish El Nile, with its hotel buildings you can find all over the world in the same style, and take time (as much as you can) to walk through the old heart of Cairo.

  • Paddle Steamer “Ryde Queen”

    Paddle Steamer “Ryde Queen”

    This poor abandoned ship is steeped in history. She was built in 1937 for the Southern Railway Company, weighed some 566 tonnes and was finished to a very high standard. She had a promenade deck with observation lounge and a large saloon, restaurant, tea room, smoking room and Ladies' room on the main deck. She operated an all-year round service between Portsmouth and Ryde on the the Isle of Wight before the outbreak of World War II. During the war she served first as a minesweeper, was converted into an anti-aircraft vessel and took part in the Normandy Landings in June of 1944 and was returned to her normal passenger service after the war in 1945. She was eventually replaced by more modern motor vessels but still operated occasionally as a relief vessel. I can remember as a young child the excitement, if when we travelled to the mainland we were fortunate enough to sail on the PS Ryde which was then the last Paddle Steamer working on the Solent.

    Do you plan to have only a short stay in Stockholm, but still would like to see or shoot some typical Swedish country houses? Easy! You just have to take the bus 44 or the old streetcar for Skansen, in the island of Djurgården, a royal park near the centre of Stockholm.

    Like in other countries in the world, Bangkok also has its own Chinatown. The Bangkok's Chinatown district runs along Yaowarat Road from Odeon Circle up to the Ong Ang Canal. It's made famous for its gold shop and pawnshops or just about anything you wanted to buy could be found here.

    Anawangin Cove

    What I thought to be ubiquitous in Philippine beaches are palm trees, but in Anawangin Cove there are more evergreen trees than palm trees growing on the sand. That's unusual, so my friends and I wanted to see the place. To get there, we took a bus from Manila to San Antonio in Zambales province. Then we took a tricycle to Pundakit beach where we hired a few small boats to take us to Anawangin.

    Old McDonalds'

    I don't know if this is a common fact, but I 'm almost sure that is something really unusual. My town, my dearest Cali has down McDonald's. I am not communist or something alike but I must say that I'm very proud with this. Here was working three McDonald's since the middle nineties approximately, but now here is none.

    Telok Chempedak Beach

    During a Lomo outing with a bunch of Lomogrpahers to Kuantan, we passed by a beach named Telok Chempedak. The first impression of Telok Chempedak beach was like in heaven - golden sands, waves, sun, people, everything was just great! I love this place so much. Telok Chempedak is located just approximately 5 km from the Kuantan town.

    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.

    Alanga Hotel

    Searching for a trip next spring? Wanna see the real Sea and smell the real vacation-time-smell? Then you must at least give a chance to the most popular Lithuanian resort near the sea, called the Palanga town. It has a lot to offer, not only in the summertime, when the streets are full of street artists and lots of attractions, but also at any time of the year. And if you need a really peaceful accommodation place, then you just have to choose this hotel - Alanga. Yes, you're completely right, if you did get the idea of the hotel's name: Alanga is in Palanga and it has only the first letter missing. And it's also the name of the river, near which the hotel is situated.

    The National Park Serra da Estrella is the highest mountain chain in Portugal. Most of the Portuguese just call it Serra. The highest Mountain is the so called Torre, which is almost 2000 meters high. On the way up and down I had to stop for several times just to take some pictures of this really natural beauty.

    Provincetown Mass USA is on the very tip of cape cod, this is the place that the pilgrims landed... then left. Later it's weird location all the way out at the end of the land became home to all manner of pirates who did things like leave church early when they saw a ship on the rocks for plunder from the church windows, the preacher had no choice but to let them go.
