    Feeding Pigeons in Chelsea

    Making double exposures in Chelsea. I don't like pigeons myself. Well, not unless they are Chelsea pigeons. In Chelsea, everything is different, kind of like having a Midas touch.

    A Luxury Pinhole Camera

    The other day I saw a luxury pinhole camera on sale. The uniqueness of this camera is not in performance but in price. Nothing less than $ 975 for a new pinhole camera. Want to know why? To me, honestly, I did not remove my Diana + ...

  • Victoria and Alfred Hotel, Cape Town

    Victoria and Alfred Hotel, Cape Town

    A hotel with the best ever view you could possibly ever wish for. While preparing for going to Cape Town, I obviously wanted to stay somewhere with a Table Mountain view. It is called such because of the clouds rolling across the top of the mountain, which looks like a table cloth. A lot of the hotels advertised "partial Table View", but in reality, you would have to hang out by the window with the possibility of a broken neck to see even a glimpse of this majestic mountain.

    Cascade Country Manors, South Africa

    Cascade Country Manors, a luxurious lomographic gateway in Western Cape. The reason we went to stay at Cascade Manor was because my friends wanted to visit Nabygelegen Vineyards because it was one of the few places producing the Pinot Noir they were so found of.

    La Mamounia - Oasis of Beauty

    La Mamounia - the eye candy of Marrakech. After a day spent wandering around dusty Medina and souqs, it was still too early to return to our hotel so I suggested we check out the only Art Deco building in town - Hotel La Mamounia. I am a big fan of Art Deco style in architecture, so for me it was a must.

  • Els Quatre Gats Restaurant

    Els Quatre Gats Restaurant

    Els Quatre Gats or 4 Gats (as its commonly known) sparked my interest after having read about it in a wonderful book called "Shadow of the wind" by a Spanish author Carlos Ruiz Zafon. The book was set in Barcelona so when I visited the city for the third time early this year, I made it a point to visit and dine in this famed restaurant. It opened in 1897 and was a popular haunt for Picasso and his mates. He apparently took on his first commissioned work by creating the front cover of the menu. This only peaked my interest more and sure enough, it didn't disappoint.

    Monte Carlo has an international image of luxury, glamour and beautiful prestigious cars. The Casino of Monte Carlo is the main place were you can have a view of all these "clichés" who are more than that because they're also the reality of this place (shown for example in the 1995 James Bond movie "Goldeneye")!
