    The Martyr's Shrine

    The Martyr's Shrine is located near Yuanshan on Beian Rd., near the lush mountains and facing the Keelung River. The Shrine was completed in 1969 and its grand architecture covers a large area of ground. Inside the shrine are the numerous plaques of martyrs as well as pictures illustrating the history of the building of our nation, a tribute to the selflessness of these brave people.

    Karni Mata Rat Temple

    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.

    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

    Hermitage Museum

    My second all-time favorite place is definitely The Hermitage Museum. I worked there for three years and had the opportunity to have regular breaks for traveling. But this place will always remain close to my heart! It's big, simply gorgeous, and very diverse!

    Métropolitain

    I love to take pictures in and of the Métro. I use it everyday and I like it, but I also hate it when there are too many people. And there are often a lot of people but I like to take pictures in the early morning or late in the night time when the Metro is empty.

    Chinatown

    Red&gold Chinese urban island in Italy. A must see. Go any day, anytime. Don't miss the supermarket! Ok fellow lomographers, this is my choice for lomohunting area. 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.

    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.

    Hamburg Arena

    If you love football you just have to be in love with the temples of football: the stadiums. Because Germany was having the World Cup they invested plenty of money into the infrastructure and new stadiums. There is little doubt, that these stadiums are the finest on the planet at the moment.

    Fuerzas Unidas

    On mission trips, I and 9 other youth built two houses in two weeks. These houses are located in Fuerzas Unidas, Honduras. The most beautiful place on Earth. It is a poor, poor country, and a poor, poor area, but you can see the entire city of Teguz from the top of Fuerzas Undias. A view that Americans would pay 2 million dollars for. The people are the most blessed people I've ever met. They have no money, but they have love, love for each other, and love for the LORD.

    A beautiful place in Lucerne

    This special place that I will show you, is one out of many that you will find in Lucerne. No doubt about that. BUT this place you will find no other travelers, because it's a secret that I am telling you. Even lots of people that live here have never been there. That's for sure. No matter, in winter, summer, autumn, spring, day or night this place is beautiful anytime. The building that you can see is part of the conservatoire...must be nice going to school there. Actually I have never seen people going in or coming out of it.

    Alentejo

    Alentejo is a region in the south of Portugal. It is divided in "alto Alentejo" and "baixo Alentejo", but their similarity is striking. I think this location should be posted in the ultimate LomoLocations due to its unique features.

    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.

    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.

    Boats

    The Mediterranean Sea is gorgeous - it has got the crossed water (not blue, not green - the "between" of both, like in doubles). So why not to discover it (the Sea) from the middle of it, ah? Well, you need to be a really good swimmer, or... need some luck to get to Marseille. The city itself is also so interesting, that you can even forget the plans of taking a trip with the boat in the Mediterranean Sea, so be calm and go straight ahead till you reach the old port, which is called Vieux-Port de Marseille.

    It's the central market of Brive-la-Gaillarde. This little town is in the county of Correze, region Limousin. It's a very rural area, lost in the mountains in the centre of France. Brive-la-Gaillarde is a capital of this area and every Saturday morning, you have the big market on the main square of the city.

    Orphanage and Thai funeral

    I met a group consisting of 12 people in Chiang Mai that I was to be leading for the next 2 1/2 weeks at the orphanage. We left civilization and made our way up north, through emerald hills and winding roads, to fang where kids' orphanage lies. It's always strange leading a group of people to a place you've never visited before but I went with the flow and all was well.

    U.S. Shell

    There is a sea shell store in Los Fresnos, TX. Outside the store is a HUGE undersea reef sculpture. Every time I go back to shoot more pictures, I discover something new. Just for going inside the store, you get a free seashell necklace. They sell every kind of shell imaginable including live hermit crabs. They also serve ice cream at the snack bar!

    Get Dressed and Get Out There!

    Harajuku is arguably the most lomographic place in the whole Tokyo. I can't remember which but on either day you're bound to find one of these AMAZING kids out there all decked and parading around. It's X-Japan or Tokyo XPRO'ed.

    If you want to relax and like nature, sand, sea and peace, Amrum is the best place for you. I spent my holidays there and enjoyed it very much. I rented myself a bike and explored the little island (20,46 km²). One of the most impressing buildings of the island is the islands landmark, the lighthouse.

    2nd Beach Pool

    Who doesn't love those sunny summer days? Or enjoy going to an outdoor heated pool? In Vancouver we have 2 favourites, 2nd Beach Pool in Stanley Park (pictured here) and Kitsilano Pool which is great for the more serious lane-swimmers. 2nd Beach Pool has 2 small slides and it's right on the edge of the ocean, the scenery is amazing. Bikes and roller-blades whiz by on the seawall, floatplanes in the sky, forest to the rear with raccoons, geese, swans, eagles and more.
