In this community, a film swap is the best way to know one another and make more international friends.
I have seen a lot of great film swap albums in the Lomography community. It was all these that inspired me to do one myself. *@ginnys*, a friend of mine from Dusseldorf, Germany, has a lot of great photos in her LomoHome. Her city looked so nice. I contacted her to talk about doing a film swap, and sent her a roll of Fuji Velvia 100F.
Here are some of the photos from our film swap!
I love the results and I can’t wait for the second roll of our film swap!
