I got a bag of old and expired film from a friend of my dad and there was this strange roll of film called Magic Color.
The design was pretty ugly, it looked like a flyer for a child’s birthday party and I almost gave it away! But then I decided to give it a try, magic color sounds good, it maybe a slide film labeled with C-41 or why should it be called magic color. So i loaded my LC-A+, and started shooting. When I picked the developed film up from the lab, the negative reminded me Agfa films cause they are black. I quickly drove home and scanned it and woooooooooo, blue blue blue and blue! and grain!!! awesome!!! I want more! Just check the gallery and love it!

Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.

Vicuna is one of my best friends and wherever the wind takes him I will catch a paraglide to meet him. I did so, when he chased turtles in Polynesia and now, when he is digesting cheese in Switzerland. My prerogative was to hit a mountain on my birthday and so we did.
With my visit to the polar station of Ny Ålesund I already got a taste for the far north. But eventually I wanted to get a piece of the real thing. So I went on a journey straight to the North Pole, 90° latitude and a point, where every compass goes cuckoo crazy. It was remarkable.

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
Last summer we were lucky to visit 4 cities in 3 different countries, just within a few days. This was reason enough to give my very first LomoChrome Turquoise a try. Afterwards I was astonished by the absolutely unexpected colors of the shots.
