Touring Bucharest with the LomoChrome Metropolis – a Photo Gallery by @aka_papu


Joining the Lomography Community is a great way to see the world. You know why? It's because you get to see different places without having to go outside.

While most of us need to stay indoors as requested by our health officials, there are still people who need to go out as part of their jobs. And we're thankful for those who try to sneak in a little photography in their day-to-day just so they can share the photos with us here in the community! Here's the view from the Romanian capital of Bucharest as seen through the eyes of @aka_papu.

Armed with a Minolta X-300 loaded with a roll of LomoChrome Metropolis film, @aka_papu was able to capture these beautiful street and architecture shots in and around Bucharest. We are absolutely loving the look of the shots - the blending of different architectural designs, intersecting lines, and bright spaces lit up by natural light. The mood is also improved thanks to the unique color of the LomoChrome Metropolis.

This film comes with a unique chemical formula specifically developed in our Lomography film manufactory, which desaturates colors, mutes tones and makes contrasts pop.
