The Grazer Schloßberg is a 123 m high rock which lies on the waterside of the river Mur over the Grazer main square. Here you can find the town's landmark – the Uhrturm.

You can reach the top with the Schloßbergbahn – some kind of elevator which brings you to the top without any struggle – or you can walk up by taking the footpath ascending 260 stairs. I preferred to walk up. It was a hot day and I arrived on the top of the Schloßberg sweaty and breathless. But when you are there it is worth all the effort because you have a really great view all over the city of Graz and also the surrounding up there is beautiful. You can sit down in one of the cosy restaurants or on a park bench or just stroll around and have a look at all the sights you can find there, like the Glockenturm (a bell tower), the Schloßberg- Kasematten, the 98m deep Türkenbrunnen (a fountain) and some little art objects. As a part of the Grazer Old Town it is one of UNESCOs world heritages.
When you reach the Uhrturm notice the little copy of the Uhrturm too. I found this more interesting than the big original.
In summer there are lots of events taking place on the Schloßberg.

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.

For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
Lomography's on a mission to conquer the world of instant photography, and we need your help to reach this goal. Find out how you can contribute (and be rewarded with a super cool close-up lens, too!) after the cut!
