    Wall of Graffiti!

    Do you know the best place to see graffiti? Have you heard of Hosier Lane, Melbourne, Australia or Queens, New York, United States ? If not, then you must Google it! Those are the places where you can see awesome graffiti painted all over buildings. The influence of graffiti subculture is also widespread in Malaysia. We also have our own best spot to see graffiti!

    Venice and Lomography X-Pro Chrome: A Perfect Match

    As soon as I stepped out of Santa Lucia station in Venice and saw the hive of activity on the waterfront, I knew which film to put in my trusty LC-A: Lomography X-Pro Chrome 100. What better film to bring out the vibrancy of this remarkable city.

    Gold and Chinatown

    Binondo, Manila's Chinatown, is one of our favorite places to photograph. It is an easy place to go to if we want to have an instant lomowalk because it can provide different streets with various ambiance. And of course, it has plenty of food and restaurants to choose from if ever we get hungry along the way. But one word always comes to mind every time I hear the place "Binondo". Wedding.

    The Favelas of Rio de Janeiro

    Rio de Janeiro is definitely a photogenic city (and with its own Lomo store to boot!), but often times, people limit themselves to staying around the beaches and tourist attractions while avoiding favelas entirely since they tend to get a bad rap in popular culture.

    The Wapping Project

    One of the best galleries in London, for real. My love affair with this gallery started through a lucky accident. I was flat hunting at that time when I saw a poster of a Guy Bourdin exhibition on the wall of some old building, which appeared to be a former Hydraulic Power Station, now the home of The Wapping Project Gallery.

    Lomography Guide to Prague: Museum Kampa

    Summer in Prague can be pretty exhausting. The sun is shining and there is no sea to jump into, just the river Vltava. If you are a modern art lover, then I offer you Museum Kampa as one of the best and interesting "break-from-sun" or "break-from-freeze" (during cold days) experiences in Prague.

    Ratu Boko: The Temple of Yogyakarta Exoticism

    I've always loved the Ratu Boko Temple or Boko Temple, because of its exoticism and its different from other temples in Yogyakarta. There's so much we can capture here. The combination of the temple, lawn, and the trees just make Boko Temple more exotic and sometimes you can find some animals there too.
