    Historic Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, GA

    I woke up on a beautiful Saturday morning and had no plans other than going downtown to a friend's yard sale. So the first thing that I did was grab my camera bag and head out of the house. I knew I wanted to take some photos but wasn't sure where. After browsing through the great yard sale items, I asked my friend if he knows any places close by that I can snap a few pictures of. He brings up Oakland Cemetery which is only about a mile away from his house.

    Spirit of the Delta

    Sometimes it is good to get away from the tumultuous nature of city life and spend some time in the country. With not much to anticipate for the day except the opportunity to enjoy being on the open road, I ventured into the California delta to cover its bridges.

    Braving the Winter Cold: Hiking at Yongmunsan Mountain (용문산) in the Snow

    Want to be hardcore? Want to test your endurance? Then why not climb a 1,157.2 m (3,797 ft) mountain in the middle of the snowy winter cold. And why not get lost in the mountain while you are at it, hiking through the fresh snow only to end up at a Buddhist temple where monks proceed to give you chocolate and drive you off the mountain. Yup, my hike on Yongmunsan Mountain (용문산) just 45km out of Seoul, definitely gave us an exciting day trip away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Prague is one of the most beautiful cities not just in Europe but also in the world. It is full of history and historic buildings, beautiful parks and other amazing places. But it is the same as it is with other things in life, if you visit Prague frequently it sure gets kind of boring seeing the same things over and over again.

    Downtown Marietta, Georgia: A Lomographic Treasure!

    A short 20-minute car ride north of Atlanta, Georgia lies the slightly older city of Marietta. Yes, older. Older, and chock full of history. During the American Civil War, Marietta was the last thing keeping General Sherman from burning Atlanta to the ground (that's for those of you who haven't seen "Gone With the Wind") and a fierce, ugly battle was fought here. Nowadays it's a lively, attractive city with things to do nearly every weekend in the summer and a ton of stuff to photograph.
