Kayak Racing

I don't know how about you, but for me water is something special... Even when it rains, I feel somehow very different. But that's not the point of this story. I am going to tell you about the Kayak or Canoe boats in Lithuania. It is so popular, that you can not find any of Lithuanians who still haven't tried that.

I don’t know how about you, but for me water is something special… Even when it rains, I feel somehow very different. But that’s not the point of this story. I am going to tell you about the Kayak or Canoe boats in Lithuania. It is so popular, that you can not find any of Lithuanians who still haven’t tried that.

There are some reasons. First, we have a unique place in the center of Lithuania, where different lakes have long and narrow canals, joining them, so you can take your boat near one lake and finish your trip in other lake. Rivers are also very interesting, as you will be probably taken to the south of Lithuania (there are some very narrow rivers), where you can try your luck as well. The rivers are very narrow, but long and not very deep, so you can row very easily without thinking what to do if you crash your kayak, or just turn around in the middle of the river. But there are so many obstacles – branches, stones, even monkey-bridges – so you have to row all the time. Take one of the following suggestions: if you want to relax, then just turn you kayak into the stream of the river and lay down, as you kayak will be easily transported by the river itself. But if you’re more extreme person like me, you will probably try all the most difficult places and risk your kayak. As the river trips can be arranged for a longer period, e.g. 2-3 days, you have to take food, tents, sleeping-bags and so on.

This is wilderness, so please do not think to find any cafes or restaurants. The only people you will meet will be with other kayaks. And what about a race? You stand in the same position and start racing for a short track, before that discussed what obstacles should each kayak run through. As for us, we had a disaster – one kayak did overturn, so two people (we took the two-seat kayaks) had only wet clothes, wet sleeping bags… Well, you can imagine that. But, as for us, we did somehow solve the problem – put the wet things on the grass, that the sun would desiccate it. Please, take it seriously – you can overturn at any time, so that’s why I did not bring any expensive cameras with me, only the old, but very good Russian Orion camera. It’s your call – are you gonna risk, or not? Like I said, there are millions of things and situations you just feel guilty you did not take a good lomocamera…

I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.

    My Day in Analogue: Weekends in Bandung

    Hello, fellow lomographers! To be honest, ever since I started working last year, I haven't been able to write a single analogue lifestyle piece. But today I decided to write something about my days, especially about my weekend in Bandung. It's not much but I take it as the start of a new beginning in writing all over again here. So, here's my weekend in Bandung!

    Postcards from Rzhavchino

    I would like to tell you about the Zhuzhalka. Zhuzhalka is the slag waste that remains after coal mining. But in this story, in our case, we have another meaning for this word. Here, the Zhuzhalka is a Ukrainian group of young photographers. These photos are by artists from Donetsk city in eastern Ukraine. The name of the project was influenced by the geographic specialization of Donetsk.

If you have faith in what I say, I’m grateful. If you don’t, I bear no ill will towards you. But either way, please shout out in the comments what secrets or sophistries you think I found through its twisting branches.

    12 Months, 12 Projects: March Of Caffenol

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    I don't care if this film has been reviewed a zillion times, that it has already been discontinued, or that there might be a Japanese version of it. The Agfa CT Precisa that I know gives me the blues. Oh, yes - not a Chelsea FC fan, but this film is all about the color blue. Say hello to the blues!
