    One Imaginary Door

    I've always heard Portuguese people are poets. I'm starting to get why, when reality isn't good, we imagine something better – a poem, a song, a door.

    Railway Station of Nice

    I asked myself what kind of new place I could shoot in my town to share with the Lomo community and thought about the fact hat locations are all about traveling and discovery....hmmm ... what kind of place can represent the travel spirit before you arrive in a new place: a railway station of course!!

    Shunting Yards

    The trains run through the centre of Johannesburg like the Thames runs through London. Our shunting yards are so prominent yet so desolate that most miss them whilst driving over Nelson Mandela Bridge. Here is a look at what goes on in this undiscovered space under those highways and bridges.

  • Main Street Station

    Main Street Station

    Richmond is full of different architectural styles. Quite often you’ll find a historical building directly next to a brand new building, or in the case of Main Street Station you’ll notice that the highway has actually been built around the building! According to www.richmondgov.com, the building was originally built in 1901, and was for the next 74 years a “bustling transportation hub.” However, due to a decrease in passenger rail service, it was closed in 1975. The building remained closed for the next 28 years, and was re-opened in 2003 after years of renovation, and now has limited train service to downtown Richmond.

    Both a Portal and a Destination: LA Union Station

    The Union Station in downtown LA is usually just a place you go to...to go somewhere else. Hundreds of people arriving and leaving, you don't really notice it much outside of its usual purpose: it's just a train station. But here's what I think, it deserves a much-needed second glance.

    The Past Preserved at Robie's Country Store

    Hooksett, the small town I come from in New Hampshire, does not have much to show for itself these days. Littered with shopping plazas and used car dealerships, little evidence remains of what was once both a beautiful tourist destination and a bustling manufacturing village in decades long past. Perhaps the only remnant of these times is Robie's Country Store, a lone testament of more fruitful days for my community.

  • Trains - “Die Bahn”

    Trains - “Die Bahn”

    What do we do when we have to get from point A to point B? We choose the vehicle... Options are endless, but we all know, that planes are fast, but expensive, and on the other hand - cars are cheap, but slow... What to do? Choose trains!!! There is a huge railway web all around Europe, and lots of companies offer different "good deals" for traveling at the very low cost. My favorite is the German Railway, or "Die Bahn" as it is called in German.
