    Welcome to Lomonster Ville

    With the storm playing tag outside, the sun is on vacation and the weather sucks to walk and shoot, which I kind of missed doing these days, what’s left for me to do? Why not combine the two things I love--Lomography and illustration. And create a world where the rain cannot touch.

    Venice in Winter

    Many people travel to sunnier places to avoid the cold during winter, but I knew I had to go to Venice, for the city's mysterious, foggy appeal and seeming emptiness that adds to its unique atmosphere. So it's there where I spent five days on my own for my winter holiday!

    A quick guide on a relaxing escape in London. A lot of people think of London as Babylon City of struggle. Not if you have a Plan B in mind. The city is so huge, there's always something for everyone.

    More London Square

    One of the most entertaining and panoramic squares of London. It is one of my favorite places in London. Not only because it only takes me 30 minutes to walk here, but because it's new, futuristic, contemporary, facing Tower Bridge and just next to City Hall.

  • Wapping Woods

    Wapping Woods

    Wapping was originally a Saxon settlement. This area was known as a marshland until the 16th century when it was drained. It then became a rich meadow and garden ground until it was acquired for the London Docks. By 1969, the docks at Wapping were empty. Trees were planted and it was optimistically called Wapping Woods. However, the trees could not survive and the result is the small park we have today.

    Alquería de Morayma - the best rural accommodation ever! I have never stayed in such a place before, and I would have never even found it by myself. But my friends from Barranco Oscuro, the amazing organic vineyard nearby, have recommended this place.

    Lomo Walk at Coney Island's Boardwalk

    Coney Island may be famous for its amusement park, but a stroll along its boardwalk by the beach is also relaxing and you get to enjoy the sea breeze and meet some interesting people. When I visited Coney Island in late April, I quickly fell in love with the place. There's something both magical and nostalgic about it which I can't explain.

    Tidung Island is one of the islands in the Thousand Islands. This island consists of two regions, named ‘Tidung Besar’ and ‘Tidung Kecil’, which is connected by a bridge.

    Although I have been living in Constanta for 23 years, I have never visited the Dobrogea Keys until a few days ago. I was truly impressed by the beauty and uniqueness of this very old landscape. Here you are in touch with nature, you feel you’re in a different time and place even though you’re only 40km away from the hustle and bustle of Constanta.
