    Polaroid High Definition (35mm, 200 iso) User-Review

    The last Mohican: I found this film really unexpectedly. Everything started that day when I discovered Lomography. I was browsing the lomography site and then in the shop I saw Smena Symbol. I somehow knew my parents used to have something like this camera, so I went down to our basement where all old stuff goes, and dug for it. After couple hours of hard searching I found it. Working and smelling fantastic! When I moved the the film advance lever I noticed the rewind crank moved too, meaning there is a film inside!

    Spinalonga Island

    Spinalonga is a Spinalonga island - tiny dot of land and Cretan sea guarder! It's an island situated in the Bay of Elounda. The history of the name 'Spinalonga' is in itself subject to conjecture but it is widely accepted that its roots lie somewhere in the Olous, Olondi, Elounda location and the words meaning long and thorn. Spinalonga is actually the name of the sizeable but slender peninsula and on maps the small island is identifiable by the name Kalidon.
