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.

    The Instant Project

    It was a cold and cloudy winter day in 2012 when I came up with the idea of compiling photographs of people's faces. I decided that the most personal way to do it is through instant shots. They are one of a kind and you immediately have something in your hands.

    Happenings on Film: Photographia Project

    Last year I took part in Photographia, a project that encouraged the use of cameras from the volt of Museu da Imagem em Movimento (M|i|mo). The gear collection used to belong to a well-known Portuguese TV channel (RTP) and some professional photographers. The cameras hadn’t been used since they were donated to the museum—until the launch of Photographia.

    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.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    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.

    My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.
