    Lighthouse Beach in Kovalam, South India

    At the southern tip of India your Lomo camera will freak out by capturing some of the greatest nature and beach attractions: a lighthouse surrounded by uncountable coconut trees, a tropical beach, hundreds of craws, lots of people, boats, fishermen at work, and last but not least, amazing sunsets.

    Diamond Head Lighthouse

    For some reason, lighthouses are just simply beautiful. Perhaps it's due to the significance behind a beacon of light or perhaps, it's the sheer size and shape that just sticks out from its surroundings. Diamond Head Lighthouse is no exception.

    Beacons Beckoning: Cape Bojeador Lighthouse

    For quite some time now, I have been fascinated with lighthouses -- lonely sentinels of the sea that welcome ships as they approach harbors and bid them farewell in their seafaring journey. I've been so fascinated in fact that I decided to visit as many lighthouses in my country as I can. In this mini-series I call Beacons Beckoning, I will document my progress in this wanderlust-driven endeavor.

  • Long Sands

    written by kylethefrench on 2008-04-27 #places
    Long Sands

    Long Sands is a beach all long and sandy in Southern Maine. It was popular with native Americans before white people came as a place for fishing and harvesting 25 pound lobsters from off the rocks (for real 25 pounds was the common size before whitey came) and then settlers came in the 1630s. Some wars happened, many settlers and many more natives were killed, natives left, the sea-trade came. Crazy things happened like a mile out into the sea from this beach, there is a tiny rock outcropping called Boon Island where a ship crashed and the sailors were stuck out there, this is the 1850s, anyways they were stuck for a couple of months in the winter and they started to eat the dead guys to stay alive, we don't remember this in history because the Donner party is more famous now.

    With tenement housing, light industrial buildings, and a sea view of luxury properties all mixed together in the same area, Tai Kok Tsui is a very busy and crowded place in Hong Kong.

    In Taiwan, because of the subtropical climate, a traditional “desert” is impossible to appear here. But every winter, the northeast monsoon comes. During this time a miracle happens, we can actually see the desert in south Taiwan.

    A corner of the south coast of Ireland. An area where it is possible to feel mystical and magical Ireland. After a long week's work or when your head is bursting with the stresses of modern day living, there's nothing as wholesome and satisfying as searching the coast for isolation with views to boost.....

    You Spin My Head Right Round: My Travels in 360

    So far, my Spinner rolls always seem to be shot at times when I really want to fully document the place I am at, as I may not be able to go back there again. There is something about being in the photograph yourself, surrounded by what is going on around you that calls for this camera to be what I think of as more of a documentary device than other cameras. There are many things I love about this camera, but one big one that I do not. Read about it after the jump!

    Bolinao

    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.
