Two wheels – Two feels

You probably already know my passion for motorcycles. This post isn’t one of those posts that tells you how cool and fancy shmancy riding a bike is – you know – the “wild and free” kinda stuff. Although, Marija is smiling in the second photo 🤷🏻‍♂️.

Hearing Damage

It’s strange how sometimes you know a song for at least few years and then one day you realise it’s about you. It happened to me with Thom Yorke’s Hearing damage song.

A part of nature

One came from nature. One cannot be happy and free between artificial nature objects. Eventually, one has to go back to the roots. We need to regain the feeling of being a part of the nature not apart from it.

In the holy land

Some shots I took while visiting Jerusalem. I really like the Kentmere films and together with the Pentax Pino camera it makes a perfect travel kit!

Out of order

The pills won’t help you now
Once you’re crying

Airports & Airplanes

A few shots I took when I went to the States through Berlin. Strange things happen when you’re up in the sky for more than 12 hours.

Just a heads up!

Old but new

Here’s a few shots from my expired Ilford FP4+ 125 film used with Zenza Bronica S2. These pictures were taken this summer and came out waaaay better than expected. I really love the grainy look that expired film gives. Hope you do too!

And here’s the camera used for these shots. It’s a Japanese made SLR camera from the 1960’s. You can hear it from a mile when it fires!

Autumn is here

It’s that time of the year again. Falling leaves, the smell, the breeze.

Throwback to summer

Our balcony is a special place. We spend a lot of time during the summer.
This film was dipped in screen wash with ethanol. The fluid itself was green so it added a nice green filter.

It just sometimes happen that you have to change perspective of things.

Autumn vibes

Nothing special going on. Just Lithuanian autumn vibes.

Potatofest

It’s my first time shooting this camera. The images came out really good! It’s sad though that the lcd screen is broken so I can’t set a proper date.

Us in instant shots

Sometimes the best photos turn out to be the ones that were taken instantly without giving it another shot. It is even kinda ironic that the one of the best photo of me and Maria together is the one that we didn’t even know if the film was in the camera. So here are some shots / selfies taken with Polaroid 600.

This is the one I’m talking about. It looks ridiculously good!

There are people which doesn’t get too attached to their home. They like to go out all the time and just need a place to sleep. Another type of people is those to whom home is very important. Me and Maria are these kind of people. As much as we love to go out, travel, etc. We really love spending time at home – ours or one of our parents.

Lost Souls

We all look for a way to save ourselves from the harsh reality. Each of us find different ways to do that. For me – one way is music.

I follow you

I, I follow, I follow you
Deep sea baby, I follow you
I, I follow, I follow you
Dark doom honey, I follow you

Following Maria in Amsterdam
Just some plant

I like following Maria. I like taking pictures of her. Maria likes all kinds of plants. I like taking pictures of her watching blossoming plants. 

I think Maria looks nice between plants. She talks to them.

Some other plants
Tram in Amsterdam. At first I thought that it was out of focus but then realised it is even better this way.

I like to follow Maria in trams and trains. She wanders through the window into the nature and people.

In Amsterdam’s zoo

I also have to follow her instructions. Even though at that time I might not look like I am enjoying that, but – I like following her. She looks happy while taking photos of me.

It’s on fire!

Another film that I took on our vacation is Fuji Velvia. It was cross-developed and came out as fire!

Getting familiar with Diana F+

Finally tried Diana F+. I really wanted to shoot more with 120 film. This is how it went.

Somewhere near Warsaw. Put up a new front tire and had a lunch.

Our gang in Prague, Czech Republic

My film rolled a bit while in a bag so – two photos in one!

Walking in the woods of Teplice, Czech Republic

Standing on top of the rocks. It’s the first shot I took in this film.

A little throwback

Some time ago, probably around 2016, I took these photos on an evening ride with my friends. I can’t recall if it was really Kodak Gold film, but probably.

David with his old Suzuki

Oh, c’mooon!

It’s funny. I went through my recent scans and figured that I took photo of my friends when their faces were like – “Oh, c’mooon!”. So a little compilation from me on funny faces 🙂

I believe, that Martynas said “What the..?” after I took this photo.

Tomas doesn’t like the idea of going up high hills.

Deividas can’t understand what are those women looking at.

Going full-power!

There are times in life when you have to go full power! I guess this photo represents how it looks like. ?

One of my earlier analog photographs. I can’t remember what film I used for it but it was taken with my beloved Zenit-E camera.

The Feel of Freedom

Pentax Pino 35 / Kodak Ultramax 400

I’ve been thinking about writing a story post for a while now. Didn’t feel like doing it until now, though. But recently I took a good series of motorcycle photos and thought that I want to tell you more about how motorcycles make me feel.

First wind

My relationship with motorcycles started a long time. When I was a kid my parents had an old Iž Planeta 5 motorcycle. My dad would take me together when going somewhere with it. I remember how I loved feeling the wind going through my hair. Later, when I was around 12 years old I got my first bike – Riga moped. It had pedals and a small two-stroke engine. I remember how I used to push that bike for it to start. When I had it I understood that I can tinker it a bit and it would run better and faster. Guess that’s the time I started to work on machines.

It did not disappear

The love for motorcycles didn’t go anywhere. From those days I knew that I would always ride a bike. It makes me feel confident. As a matter of fact – just yesterday I had my driving exam and passed it! ? Now I can ride whatever motorcycle I want; no more restrictions! ?

Owning a motorcycle

There is something special about owning and riding a motorcycle. One thing is that you have to work on your motorcycle. You have to take care of it if you want it to be trustworthy. It’s like having a real relatioship – you have to put effort and show respect if you want to receive the same. It might look like your motorcycle should be the one serving you. And that is true. You should not be your motorcycle’s slave. But don’t expect your motorcycle to do all the work!

Riding a motorcycle

Another thing about motorcycles that drives me is when you ride your motorcycle. IT JUST FEELS DAMN GOOD! It makes me feel calm and restores confidence. I feel that I can achieve anything I want when I ride my motorcycle. And the community of motorcycle drivers – you feel as a part of people who likes the feel of freedom; people who is open-minded; people who loves motorcycles. You even greet other motorcyclists when you meet them on road! ?

I guess that’s it for now. Maybe I inspired you a bit to get yourself a motorcycle and join this journey. If not – at least I hope you liked the photos! Have a good one!

 

Hello Barcelona!

A throwback to our trip to Barcelona. Had a wonderful time in a wonderful city with Maria. Although first thing that comes into mind is locals every three to five meters whispering – ‘Coffee shop? Cannabis?”. ?‍♂️
