Why it is a good idea to take your bike on your next lomo-tour?
Ride your bicycle; it’s not only more fun, but it’s also healthier and good for the environment. And, it’s unbelievably useful to take the bike when you’re on a lomo-tour. You can complete relatively long distances in a short time, while you have the choice to stop whenever you like; whenever you see an interesting subject.
With the bicycle, you are flexible and independent. In the city, or in the countryside, you can reach your destination fast and in a relaxed manner. On the way there you can already shoot a lot of stuff, as you like. Actually everybody knows that taking the bike is not only good for your own body, but also for the environment. But sometimes laziness overcomes us. Fight your weaker self and pedal! Then you’ll remember the nice feeling of the summer wind blowing through your hair.

Please help me if you can!

Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!
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.
