    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.

    Día de Muertos

    Tepotzotlán is a place, a little colonial town, near México City… but most important is this day. November 1 & 2, Día de Muertos, Day of the Dead; the day when people that has left us in this side of the road visits us to have a drink at our table. In fact, you can take part of the festivity at almost any place at México. One of the must important traditions on this day is the offering; it acquires different characteristics at different locations. At Tepotzotlán, some of the youngsters of the town organize a macro offering with lots of skeletons and skulls in every size and material (sugar, paper and clay).

    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.

    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.

    Easter - Egg races

    If you're in Lithuania and it's Easter time, you have to get yourself into one of the best Easter traditions in the whole world. First of all, you have to prepare for the egg races! Find yourself the standard package of eggs in the supermarket, and paint them. Here is the big thing, believe me or not, because the "tuning" of your egg can be the critical factor in the races.

    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.

    It was Good Friday when I first saw this marketplace. It is summer, and it is extra hot and humid. Umbrellas are everywhere. People came in droves to visit the miraculous church of St. Sepulcro. The streets leading to the church were buzzing with all the activity - quite the opposite inside the church.

    Well this sounds a bit like a boring lomolocation - garden, flowers, old people, tourists. But I want you to first read this text (that took me hours to write!) and do not skip the first paragraph with the historic facts! Then you will see why I like this location and why it is worth to pay a visit.

    Well, no one will be surprised to hear that also in Europe you can find a lot of historical buildings, especially churches. But this one is especially special. Why? Well it's not the long history that started in around year 990. No, it's the colour inside.

    Neues Institutsgebäude NIG

    If you`re into late 70's asbest-architecture, this is the place for you. Some clear instructions: enter this University building preferably in the evening when there are no more lazy students around. Have a 50 cent coffee at one of the automats. Say hi to one of the people lying around there. Go to the entrance hall again and get ready for an unforgettable adventure! Step into the grand PATERNOSTER elevator (this thing is made out of wood and goes up and down with crazy mechanics) and occupy yourself by reading the students paroles for vegan food. Get transported to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor and do not descend. When you`re reaching the 5th floor, a sign (see image) will tell you to get the hell off the elevator. The sign somehow signifies that horrible things may happen. But you`ll stay and become a hero. Hold your plastic cup tight. Catch your last breath. Load your camera and take some pictures of your awestruck face. Nuff said, you`ll see for yourself, my friend!

    Condesa Neighborhood

    Mexico City`s coolest and hippest neighborhood, the best place to see and be seen, art galleries, book stores, fashion, boutiques, cool restaurants and bars, beautiful streets and parks, and really nice Art Deco buildings from the 1920s. Very safe place also, but sometimes a little bit expensive, but it`s worth it. Having a walk, skateboarding or playing soccer (in Mexico you can play soccer everywhere), so always have your sneakers on, no boots, please, our legs will appreciate it. Eating in one of La Condesa`s multiple restaurants is relaxing, fun and satisfying. It`s also an LC-A paradise, so shouldn`t forget to bring a lot of rolls with you.

    Cathedral of Siecha

    There are many places that I love to photograph, cultural events, bars, clubs and pubs, but undoubtedly my favorite place to shoot is the Cathedral of Siecha. It is an ancient god-forsaken church located in a small town only 30 minutes from Bogota by car. The place is magical, it is cozy and very photogenic. It`s very cold and photos can be finished in darkness, which is perfect for the LC-A+. At night with natural light or using all the colors of the color splash flash you can make impressive photographs.

    Abandoned Railroad Tracks

    Traces of the once working mexican railroad, slowly erased by nature. On one side the tracks end abruptly, but on the other the keep going on and on. And not only railroad tracks go on, but lots of strange things like advertisements that warn you about never coming train; rusty metal, rusty clothes and even forgotten rusty christmas trees resting forever on the millions of stones that surround the tracks. It's like being on a forgotten island in the middle of a crowded city.
