This year I made a decision: "I need to revisit one of the places I go to clear my head with the LomoChrome Purple Film." As someone who also works all year round and needs to wind down, I need to get away from the city. First, I prepared myself a nice bag full of films: Three rolls of Lomography Color Negative 400, Revolog 460nm, Agfa APX100 and LomoChrome Purple. I decided to try the LomoChrome Purple at the place where I started my analogue photography journey.

Amasya is a city in Middle Karadeniz that is full of natural beauties. There is a river running from the middle of the city, giving it two distinct vibes. One side of the river is a standard city and the other side is full of historical artifacts that have been protected. Amasya's protected architecture is similar to that of Kastamonu. The main thing that differs between these two cities is the mountains and the rocks. If you ever need a place to wind down for a holiday or for the weekend, I definitely suggest you to visit Amasya. Other than the city center, you can also visit the neighboring villages and towns. Both for digital and analogue photographers, it's a city I visit often for picnics and natural/portrait photography.
