Go East: A City Portrait By did!

Take your camera, grab some films and catch the night train!

Take your camera, grab some films and catch the night train!

Living in central Europe, the east side is relatively near – and it’s always worth visiting! Have a look on these pictures that I took during the last weekend in Warsaw (Poland). A great city with unique atmosphere and full of chaotic architecture!

The first two galleries were taken using my Yashica. This is one of my favorite films: The Ilford Delta 400.

And here we have a Fomapan 400 with a little push:

This is the very new Lomography Colour Negative 800 loaded to my very old LC-A. (Some shots using the Fisheye lens.)

And, finally, this is something very special. More about this nice emulsion I’ll tell you guys later…

See the whole albums on my lomohome!

    WOW....i almost had a heart attack there....The shot from the fomapan roll 6/15, the man on the bus....i thought it was my grandfather in the photo....My grandparents both live there, and my grandfather looks just like the man in the photo, but the man in the photo is a bit younger looking than my grandfather. CRAZY!!!!!!!!!! Great shot! and good job on the Poland Promo! and i love the pics of the Palace of Culture! great work!

    At first, Skyler only visited the Lomography website to take a look at sample photographs taken with different point-and-shoot cameras. Seeing the immense focus given by the community to film photography and experimentation, two things she absolutely loves, she immediately signed up and started her own LomoHome.
