    Sleeping Beauty Raises Eyebrows

    When you see a person lying in a public space such as the metro or on the side of the road I'd say you'd think "poor thing". How about if we told you we was clear-shaven and wearing designer threads? "Man, he's drunk" might be your next reaction. Well, visual artist John Clang took to the streets and brought his fluffy pillow along with him. Join him in taking a long "pause" after the jump!

    Hop On The Love Bus!

    Back in the 1970's, big blue buses with pastel hearts painted all over them ruled the roads of Metro Manila, Philippines. The Love Bus was a favorite of retro Manileños because of its systematic route, subsidized fare, and super sweet design. Caution to the reckless: "The Love Bus will not stop for you; you have to run after them."

  • Riding the Chicago

    Riding the Chicago

    One of the things I miss most about Chicago is the awesome public transportation, and the "L" can really get you anywhere you need to go. It is the equivalent to a subway system, except it is above ground for most of the tracks. It's the best way to go on an adventure, and also the best way to get lost! This is a good thing.

    Wuppertaler Schwebebahn

    Public transport in Wuppertal is a unique experience, and also quite an adventure, especially if you're scared of heights. To get in and out of the swaying carriages of the Schwebebahn („floating train“) takes a bit of strong nerves but you'll be rewarded with a fun ride and (more or less) exclusive views into people's backyards – keep your camera ready!

    Route 32 in Watervliet, NY (about 12 miles from Albany) passes over the mainline of the Delaware & Hudson Railway, much like the other highway overpasses in the area. The casual observer may miss the Lomographer's treasure trove which lies beneath the bridge, along side the tracks.

    Port of Nice

    The port of Nice is one of my favorite place to shoot. It's a very inspiring place, not only because it's a wide open space in front of the sea, but also because there are always a lot of new big ships to see, prestigious old sailboats or impressing giant cruisers.

    One of the most wonderful additions to the megacity that is Manila is the revival of the Pasig River Ferry which, since its inauguration in February 2007, leisurely takes passengers to and from the heart of Old Manila... through the Makati Central Business District... up to the outskirts of Pasig City, and eventually northwards to the shoe capital, Marikina City.
