    oh and three songs by The Departure:
    "All Mapped Out" because of the famous lines: "My eye's a camera / My feelings film / One hour to develop into my own newsreel"
    and from "Talkshow" we have "You take pictures of me / As I walk down the hall / You take a picture of me / Is this all there is to keep me alive?" and then "Time", "Looking through a camera lens / The eye of a machine / Is more honest than mine [...] Let me take a picture of you / Let me close my eyes for a time"

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
