    Poetry Park in Marijampolė

    Almost twenty five years ago in my town somebody spread rumours about new place to take time. This engaged local artists, specifically literates, to organize night verse reading which met with great success.

    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.

    Hollywood: A Tourist in my Own Town

    The funny thing about Hollywood - the town, not the idea - is that it actually has very little to do with the entertainment industry. Hollywood and Highland is ridiculous, mass-produced, candy-colored, jammed-together, and yet it is a carnival of inauthenticity, not unlike the entertainment industry itself.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Girl with the Scarred Face (A Tribute to Juergen Teller)

    This is a tribute to Juergen Teller, a great fashion photographer who continues to work with analogue cameras. In the 1990s he radically changed the way to make fashion photography. His models appear "soap and water", without heavy make-up, and his images seem taken like an amateur photographer. Between his nice works, there is a photos that I like so much, taken in Cuba and called "The Girl with the Broken Nose." Take a look after the jump!

    Bayliss Park, Council Bluffs, Iowa - Summer Road Trip 2009 - Lomostop #8

    By now you know my story: July 2009, 8000 km road trip, 3 generations, 1 van. Crazy? Yes. Lomographically limited? In no way whatsoever! I took along 10 cameras and 40 rolls of film. We passed through 10 American states and 3 Canadian provinces, and we only stopped at McDonalds twice...

  • Magic Fountain of Montjuic

    Magic Fountain of Montjuic

    I must say I have a bit of poor luck with this attraction. My friends and I planned to go to this magic fountain on our first evening, however, before the performance started we decided to grab a meal and go back. Then here comes the pouring rain, getting lost around the back streets, very quiet place... etc etc. all those frustrating moments. We cannot go back to see the performance on time. Argh... Can you believe our luck? Raining our first evening, when we wish to enjoy the sunshine that London doesn't have.
