    Mincyuan Street

    Bricks used to build Sansia old street at that time were transported from a faraway country, Japan. In addition, the planning of the old street as a whole gives out a deep sense of retro which you can see old buildings with delicately carved exterior along the old street.

    Alchichica

    Every time I go to Veracruz from Mexico City I try to take photographs of the desert from the bus, because I really like the moving landscape, and being in the middle of somewhere. Mexican desert is the best, magical, with lagoons, unknown archeological sites, lizards, UFO`s (some people say, and I would like to lomo-prove it), and much more stories and characters travelling or living around. Lots of things to do, places to stop for a few minutes to grab a bite, or simply to buy things from people waiting by the road bumps. It is nice, your vision gets lost, your mind wonders, and the finger keep pressing the shutter.

    Aurora

    So the Aurora thing.. The party place with lots of different djs on all days of a week, cheep beer and drinks with cool music and a small place for dancing. It's close to the centre of Warsaw, close to anything! And they sell sandwiches if you are hungry :)

    Greek Easter at Uncle Paul’s

    Every since I can remember my family would always get together at my uncles house in Lindenhurst, NY. Perorations start a week or so in advanced. Uncle Paul orders the lamb and goat. Grandma starts preparing all the side dishes and colours the Easer Eggs. Finally on Easter Sunday Uncle Paul gets up nice and early to prepare the lamb and goat. Then he lights the BBQ.

    Liuxi cultural city

    I like this place very much. The Taiwanese old movie-like streets are the places, the older generation remembers still very well. It carries the local lifestyle of various decades starting from 30's to the 60's surrounded with houses built following the ancient construction techniques.

    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.

    Abandoned industrial coal silo

    A few months ago my girlfriend showed me an abandoned industrial coal silo. It is located next to a Kroger in Merrimont, Ohio. Merrimont is a small village East of Cincinnati, Ohio that was established in 1929. The village has made great strides to make itself appear much older than it actually is. The local inn is styled like a medieval castle.

    I fell in love with Venice. This picture was taken at night during an aqua alta, the piazza was flooded and the basilica reflected on the water like on a mirror, it was like in a dream...

    Zum dicken Heinrich

    It was my grandfather (the big Henry, cause he was really tall and fat), who built up this restaurant many years ago together with my grandmother. When he died, my uncle and aunt got the restaurant. And they developed it even more.

    Chiang Mai

    Flooded chiang mai. I touched down in Chiang Mai and a gorgeous afternoon greeted me. Managed to knock 50 baht off my room price and rested until evening descended. I decided to head to the night market for some dinner...got half way there and suddenly the rumors I'd been hearing came back to me: Chiang Mai was flooded!! I'd heard it a few times but I guess it didn't really sink in until now! People were wading through waist-deep water....the night market was definitely out! I had no choice but to return to the seedy part of town and find a semi-decent restaurant.

    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.

    My favourite transport vehicle is my bicycle. It's so easy to go out with it, to the city or to the countryside. It costs nothing, only a little bit physical energy and it's also good for your health to do a little bit exercise.

    Mountains

    MOUNTAINS. This goes hand in hand with forests, I love to travel to mountains whenever & wherever I can. Always photogenic and awe-inspiring summer or winter gotta have 'em near me. Playing and sliding on snow. Hiking, planning trips and looking at them in books and on maps, going to ranges I have only seen in print. Basking in their glow (sometimes getting punished by their elements) getting into the silence of the backcountry on a cold winter morning. I live in a city nestled by them & would go crazy if I wasn't. Not to mention: my job involves being in the mountains nonstop (I shoot snowboarding professionally) in the winter time. I need them!!!

    Food market at Barbés

    If you`re in Paris for a longer time, there`s no way getting round the markets here. My favourite market is the one at Barb`s every Saturday and Wednesday, a magic place where delicious fruits and vegetables, orientalic marketing strategies and dirt are somehow mixed into a tasty cocktail. Be sure to go there between 1 and 2 on the afternoon for supercheapo offers (2 kilo 1 euro yeah!). Also check out the other stuff they sell and have a look at the electric glittering womens underwear from Syria. On your way back home, be sure to go by TATI on the corner and have some converse shoes for 10 eurobucks. There are lots of wedding shops with unforgettable shoe designs for men and women too. If you want to take pictures on the market, be sure to do it secretely (special hip shot mission) or to ask very

    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.

    When: Best in October, There is a Camel-Fair nearby Just imagine that you are in the middle of the North-Indian Desert. Just for Fun! Then you jump into a Hindu-Temple. Because there is not anything else to do and why are you in India anyway? Like me. We wanted to go to a city which streets had been flooded. But this mischief brought me to the place that flooded my imagination. The Karni Mata Temple close to Bikaner is off from any travel-route, a diamond among travelers.

    Golf Club d'Hulencourt

    Whether you're a seasoned golfer, attempting to be a golfer or just admire gorgeous landscapes...a golf course is one the best areas to photograph. There is always going to be something to shoot - the sunset or sunrise, beautifully manicured flower beds and fairways, ducks frolicking in the water hazards, the occasional deer, hedgehog, fox that scampers on your path, and the best bit... seeing you or one of your mates hit an incredible golf shot (or an equally incredibly bad swing!). Basically, the possibilities are endless.

    Plaza de las Vizcainas & Callejón de San Ignacio

    It's just an Alley, in an old neighborhood (Vizcainas) in the historical downtown of Mexico City. It's not a touristy spot, 'cause the place it's on a decay state. These days some people are trying to bring new life to the place. San Ignacio Alley is an example of that, its walls has turned into a canvas for urban artists and the passage a laboratory for some artists that recycle trash into art.

    If you are in Rome, Italy as a tourist, you shouldn't definitely miss visiting this enormous architectural monument built about 1920 years ago by the Emperor Vespasian. He started building it between 70 and 76 AD, but it was completed by his son Titus in 80 AD. The Colosseum was dedicated to the year of Vespasian's death by him. The opening celebrations lasted for 100 days presenting many games.

Although it may or may not be the most beautiful fountain in Rome, but it is without doubt the most famous and packed with tourists and locals. It is said that it became famous after

    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.

    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.
