A Medical Mystery - Triples

21

I was trying to make doubles with xbalboax and I took pictures of the Atlantic ocean in Maine with a Fisheye and he took pix of main street in New York ... the crazy mistake part is that unknown to both of us the slide film (velvia 100 speed) bought from ebay was already exposed when purchased and the crazy thing is that we thought it was blank yet we were MISTAKEN! it was exposed with pictures of some kind of gross surgery probably they were slides that a professor took to use in a class at a medical school, either way everybody wins with this mistake, except maybe the patient--- these pictures are either really cool or really disgusting - some people might not even want to look at them, I think they are kind of right on though :)

    Yeah I do wish that the triple aspect of these were more clear but there are like 6 pictures where you can really see the triple aspect. The redbull truck and the waterlillies are a couple examples. I think the issue is the surgery people had bright ass sergery lights and me and xbalboax just used sunlight. Anyways lsi thanks for the exposure.

    dispite of being disgusting, I think that it's kind a bit of life!.. nothing lasts forever and human body sometimes needs surgery to get better! so, i consider this pics amazing on them own!

    I LOVE #S 3, 7, 12, 22.
    I agree that maybe this guy loves Lomography and hoped someone would make use of the exposures he didn't need. They are creepy but at the same time, so awesome because of the juxtaposition of each facet of the prints.

    these were def an interesting surprise. if you look closely you can see the fisheye stuff from kyle and the lc-a shots from me on a few of the shots, so the triples are visible on a few shots. by far the craziest set of swaps i have ever done. i think what really made these are the colors we got from cross processing the film. thanks kyle and lsi for bringing this creation to life :) and thanks to ebay for the film gotta love the internet ^_^

    It looks awfully like a shoulder reconstruction to me. Gnarly cool! I'm jealous. I want already exposed film with gross medical things, too.

    Seeking the Elusive 'Decisive Moment' in Foreign Cities

    Some of the photos I took during my trips to Penang and Singapore may pass as street photography, but to be honest, they were more like my feeble attempts to capture 'decisive moments' that I don't usually find at home.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 5

    Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    Tinker on the fly: A color filter made from spoiled film

    Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.

    Experiencing the Rainforest Adventure Experience

    When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.
