    One of the main attractions in Auckland (New Zealand's biggest city) is the Sky Tower. The Sky Tower allows you to have amazing panoramic views over the whole city and is as well a great photographic subject to shoot from outside.

    Film Manipulation: Mixing Bleach, Detergent and Negatives

    I've been experimenting with many substances, more or less corrosives, for film manipulation. The images come out so different, that sometimes you can't even recognize them. The pictures in this experiment are a result of mixing bleach and detergent powder.

    Dunedin, the Most Scottish Town in New Zealand

    Dunedin is one of the biggest cities in the south island of New Zealand and has a very Scottish identity. Through words - and of course, lots of analogue photographs, let me show you some of the main points of interest in this city!

    Wellington, Capital of New Zealand

    Finally, here we are at Wellington! This was our last stop in New Zealand, and is the capital of this country. Even if it's not the biggest city of the country, it's the political capital and also known as the heart of the cultural and artistic life of New Zealand

  • Mt. Eden Park, Auckland

    Mt. Eden Park, Auckland

    Mt. Eden Park in Auckland is made from an impressive former volcano crater and offers a great view over the whole area. It's perfectly safe to visit as it's already a dormant volcano - you can either enjoy a nice walk uphill or take a car if you're being lazy but once you get to the top, you'll quickly realize that all the effort is well worth it.

    Get a Nice Girl and a Kid So You Get to Know Your City Better

    I dig deep in the city each time I go for a walk with my 4-month-old son. So if you want to get to know Berlin better - mainly the "Barrios", Kreuzberg and Neukölln - read on after the jump and have a look at the gallery at the bottom.

  • Place de la Concorde, Paris

    Place de la Concorde, Paris

    Not only a place of memory, but also an open-air circus. At 8 hectares (20 acres), the octagonal Place de la Concorde is the largest square in Paris. It is situated between the Tuileries and the Champs-Elysées. What is now a place for taking pictures with the Eiffel Tower on the horizon, as well as a reforming place for all sorts of street artists, is actually a place of great heritage.

    The Old Photo Booth at The Ace Hotel

    A photographer’s paradise! For all us old school, black & white lovers, this photo booth is NOT for the faint of heart. This is NOT one of those cheesy sticker photo booths that you’ll find in the mall, nor is it the rip off sitting in your local movie theater lobby; this is the real deal!

    Papeete, the Big City of French Polynesia

    If you have the chance one day to visit French Polynesia, the city of Papeete will be the first place you'll see and visit. If you expect the mythical image of Tahiti, you'll be disappointed, because it's not the right place for this! But there are other things to see...

    More London Square

    One of the most entertaining and panoramic squares of London. It is one of my favorite places in London. Not only because it only takes me 30 minutes to walk here, but because it's new, futuristic, contemporary, facing Tower Bridge and just next to City Hall.

    Kasbah

    Kasbah district in Marrakech, a place which seemed to have resisted change that comes with time. However, the main reason why we went to this area was the Hammam. It was my birthday so I decided a visit to a spa would be nice.

  • Wapping Woods

    Wapping Woods

    Wapping was originally a Saxon settlement. This area was known as a marshland until the 16th century when it was drained. It then became a rich meadow and garden ground until it was acquired for the London Docks. By 1969, the docks at Wapping were empty. Trees were planted and it was optimistically called Wapping Woods. However, the trees could not survive and the result is the small park we have today.

    Scenes from the City with the New Petzval Lens

    The new Petzval Lens has proven itself a master of close-up shots and soulful portraits time and time again. Now some of our talented community members have stepped it up a notch and aimed the Petzval at city-scapes. From snow-capped pedestrians, couples chatting in parks, bustling markets, or people waiting to get on the metro - the beautiful banalities of city life are covered in these eloquent shots. Scroll through this gallery we've put together just for you to get a taste of the Petzval's urban potential!

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    If you ask anyone from Marseille what building is the symbol of the town, they will all answer you "La Bonne Mère"! Indeed, the "Good Mother" is the main cathedral of Marseille and is the holy protector of the whole city and people of Marseille

    Lisbon Graffiti: Calçada da Glória

    When you visit Lisbon, you must ride the typical funicular, "Elevador da Glória". My suggestion, if you are a street art lover, is to go up in the funicular (Lisbon streets are very steep!) and come down walking to enjoy the art.

    Johor Bahru - a city located in the southern part of Malaysia. Based on population size, it should be Malaysia's second largest city. I already mentioned Johor Bahru in my previous article, now, what does this city that is just across the water from Singapore have to offer?
