    I am so in love with my Instax camera because it not only spits out my photos on tiny credit card sized prints in an instant but also it is a good swimmer...

    Waterfall Trails - A Journey Through Pondoland

    One of South Africa's best-kept secrets is hidden along its eastern coast - the Transkei. It remains untouched and is rich in culture, people, and wilderness. With no cellphone signal, internet or electricity close by there's nothing else to do but explore our surroundings and create our own adventures.

    The Sea Swimming Pool of Uturoa

    Going to the swimming pool is always cool, but I don't like it when the place is closed and smelling strong chemicals... open air pools are much better, but the chemicals in the water are still there... and what about an open air swimming pool that is open on the beautiful waters of a logoon? That's what I want to show you now, the open air sea-pool of Uturoa!

    Cardiff State Beach (California)

    Cardiff State beach is my absolute favorite summertime haunt. Although I give it love year round there is nothing better than a sunny summer day spent surfing and swimming in the ocean followed by relaxing on the beach with good friends, good music and a cool drink.

    Multi-Lensed Cameras: Perfect Swimming Companions

    Whenever and wherever I go, I ALWAYS have at least one multi-lensed camera with me. Why? So I'm sure that all fun moments won't be missed. With one convenient press of the shutter, multi-lensed cameras capture every angle and movement! It's the perfect application of the rule: Don't think, just shoot!

    On Boxing Day here in Perth, Western Australia we all jumped on my friend Tim's boat, and cruised over to one of the most beautiful islands that Australia knows - Rottnest! I wasn't sure what to expect from my new point-and-shoot camera but I was definitely stoked with the results!

    Basking at the Beach: My Personal Favorites

    Summer time. It’s the season for sun, sand, and waves. And in the Philippines, summers are scorching hot, with temperatures reaching up to 35 degrees Celsius on a typical summer day. To cool off, Pinoys love to go to the beach, slather on some sunscreen and have a cool dip in the ocean or at the pool. Over the years, I've collected lots of family photos on the beach. Here are some of my favorites.

    What better way to remember those hot summer days than with underwater photography. Now Lomography helps me to forget that we are 5 degrees and experiencing very cold weather! And the fact is that the summer was very Lomographic!

    One of the warmest lakes in Austria, so beautiful it was used as a location for The Sound of Music, situated near Salzburg, Mondsee is perfection! I first discovered Mondsee when my friend got a house there. I have now been to visit her three summers in a row so I thought I'd impart my pearls of wisdom:

    When i moved to Bagarmossen, a little urban district in the south of Stockholm, I did not know of the Söderbysjön lake. But, as I saw all the other kids from school walking into the woods with towels and swimming wear I understood there was something special in there.
