    Ghostly Doubles: Spirited Away!

    Double exposure is probably the technique most used by Lomographers. I like images all mixed up but sometimes I like to put some order in the house and tend to work my images so they can be distinct. When I'm up to it, I turn on the Ghost Mode!

    Nostalgic and Memorable Places of Mine

    It's known that B&W gives that special tone, that magical atmosphere, which sends us into a journey to the past. No need for black-and-white film for this journey as these locations of mine are "back to the past" by itself. I'll try not to cry while I'm writing this article.

    This is a one-of-a-kind beach. My favourite one: with my pals or only with myself and I. Can't stop wondering how could I have let this one spend so much time without me, as I was wandering about, searching for that resting spot, that second home place.
