Accidental cross-processing = lots of Likes I thought I'd never get!

My mistake, I thought Lomo film was a slide film...

First time I bought a Lomo film I was definitely sure this was a slide film… Didn’t even check it… I was damn sure… and damn wrong!!

So when going to the lab I asked – probably with much assurance – to have the film cross-processed… And they probably got sure I was one of these fancy weirdo photographs with much self-esteem and didn’t dare to ask me if I was sure… hahahaha :D

Anyway, results were just amazing on few of the shots and they now are pics with the most Likes in my home, especially the first 2 of the slide below, and I really like them too :D

But for some of these I didn’t really like the tones and render, of course, it was not what I expected. I was kinda disapointed but it was funny and so surprising to see how many of you liked and commented the pics and their crazy tones.

I think THIS was the day I really understood – and accepted – how there was absolutely no rule in Lomography… What you think is completely fucked up… sometimes others will love… That’s why I really dig Lomography pictures, this is freedom! :)

    That's one of the things I really like about Lomography; you hope for, and often get, very cool unexpected results.
