    Winter is a great time to remember summer, is it not? What is it about this annual exhibition that inspires my love/hate relationship with crowds and cotton candy? If you're a bit confused on what I'm talking about, here's a look at Capital Ex - an annual festival that we get to enjoy - or not, every July.

    Barigui Park

    Every city has its own attractions. One of the most visited spots of Curitiba is the Barigui Park. It's a huuuuuuuuge park inside the city with an artificial lake, museums, amusement park, restaurants, aeromodelism, bike trail, sports field, trekking, barbecue spots, gym, exposition center, and many other things to see. During the summer time or weekends, the park is crowded with kids and dogs, families, couples and tourists having fun in their favorite spots. You can get there by car, bike, bus or even helicopter! You'll have so many things to shoot that you can't decide where to start! My favorite spot is next to the lake, where people bring their kites to fly across the sky. It's a beautiful show and you can't miss it!

    Gröna Lund Fairground

    It's got to be winter to capture the eerie, abandoned feel of the place. You can shoot the forgotten merry-go-rounds, the deserted roller-coaster and the empty fairytale houses.

  • Moviepark

    written by camerao on 2008-04-27 #places

    Holga, Diana, SX 70 and Horizon entering Hollywood. If you want to make pics like in the glorious old times of Hollywood-Movies... you could do it without spending a lot of time and money. In Warner Brothers Movie parks you'll find back stages, facades and streets where you could imagine that gangsters, Bonny&Clyde or John Wayne have passed. And if you don't go there on holidays or on Sunday, take your time, until people have left the place you want to make your pic - you can make photos like in the 60s or 70s there. And if you take a portrait-film, and the good old SX 70 for your Polaroid-camera, you'll get the sweet colors which fit perfectly to your motives.

    Welcome to the Jungle...Jim's that is

    Travel down Route 1 south in Delaware and you'll see lots of crazy stuff: the UFO building at Eagle's Nest Airport, a tractor museum, an enormous propeller in front of a restaurant (which I hope to photograph in the future), 30ft. plastic neon-colored palm trees strung with blinky lights. None is as crazy, or inviting on a summer day, than Jungle Jim's .

  • Funicular

    written by golfpunkgirl on 2008-04-27 #places

    There is just something about riding a funicular that brings out the child in me. I get all giddy with excitement as the slanted tram travels up a very steep slope normally with fantastic views along the way. This particular funicular was in Barcelona and is one of the two ways you can get up to Mt. Tibidabo (aside from car/bus-boring!) and is over 100 years old and is the first of its kind in all of Spain!
