Double the fun! See what happens when a roll of film takes an Irish Fed 5c journey and then lands in a Sprocket Rocket in the Lake District.
Having never done doubles before I was rather excited when fellow lomo lover homer agreed to take the plunge and start a doubles project with me. Homer chose to shoot a roll of Kodak Supra 400 through his Fed 5c over in Ireland and then posted the roll off to me.
It took me a long time to decide which of my cameras to use but I eventually settled on my Sprocket Rocket. I figured that even if I reeeally messed up then at least, hopefully, the sprockets would be exposed! I loaded up the roll in my Sprocket Rocket, headed off on holiday to the Lake District and shot away with my fingers crossed (quite difficult you know, try it ;) ) in the glourious sushine.
Here are the results! What do you think?
We were pleased with how our first doubles roll came out and I can’t wait to do some more, infact, there are already a few projects in the pipeline.

Located in the Zhejiang province, Hangzhou is known as one of the most beautiful cities in China. I went there following my aunt’s advice. She studied calligraphy in Hangzhou Arts University (杭州美术大学) and told me, "When I sat by the lake, I just understood Chinese painters. They painted what they see, not less."
It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot. Some swap rolls with friends overseas while others concoct unheard-of film soups. And then there are the masters of operations, the ones who spy and crouch their way to a share-worthy picture. This is one such story.
When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image. Such is what happens when one sees Suji Park's work for the first time. It’s as if you can actually hear and feel the details of each snapshot — the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the complex silence of nature or a dry and nostalgic solitude.
