Cold and Trip

We bought new camera to our collection and it’s Olympus Trip 35 – camera that been created and introduced in 1967. The auto-exposure mechanism is effectively solar-powered! You just need to choose aperture, distance and ISO of your film.

Lens/aperture: 40mm f/2.8-f/22 Zuiko
Shutter Speed:  1/200th or 1/40th of a second and we get a perfect exposure. When the camera’s incapable of making an acceptable exposure, a little red flag shows up in the viewfinder and the shutter locks out.
ASA/ISO:  25, 40, 50, 64, 80, 100, 125, 160, 200, 250, 320, and 400. The camera then makes the necessary adjustments for the shutter speed.

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 🤷🏻‍♂️.

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.

When sun is here

Don’t forget to appreciate the sun. It feels like a dream when it warms you.

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.

water-camera/2017 summer

I got this funny water film camera from my boy. It is 35mm film camera with flash which, sadly, doesn’t work.

Here are some shots ! The film was already rolled so I don’t know brand or ISO but shots are quite grainy.

My very close friend Domantas had just moved in to a new place so we bought plants to his new crib. Domantas is a blossom in my life.

I like people who dream or talk to themselves interminably; I like them, for they are double. They are here and elsewhere.

Autumn is here

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

kids & willow

with Renata we found this willow in front of the prison. we danced, talked, played and braided hair with it. and once she said that she even hears how willow whispers and calls us. 

Marijus is dreamy but especially when it is about cars. We went to the market to search for one but I found beautiful willow instead. 

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.

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.

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.

Motorcycles and rocks

Camera: Lomo Fisheye 2 (click to see how it looks like)
Film: 35mm, Kodak Gold 200

At the end of the July, we started our voyage toward Prague. We have also visited Teplice rocks, spent time in Katowice, walked through Prague and with our way back – rested in a big traffic, slept in creepy camping and had some unexpected motorcycle issues!

It was pretty hard to take this pic because the camera is light and the wind is a speedway is quite big.

When I am not sleeping or reading I see this view all the time!

Katowice and saying goodbye to one guy who made this road with us.

Traffic hit me

Amsterdam

June ended with great World Cup matches in Amsterdam. We went there to see and finally hear Jack White. Amsterdam was cute, wheeled, warm, tasty and floral.

I took Rollei35T with Kodak Color Plus.

Žmonės sakė, kad mums labai pasisekė – taip šilta Amstery nebūna. Prabuvę keturias dienas ten ir grįžę Lietuvon ir pasakoję, kaip sekėsi, tik pokalbio gale prisimindavom, kad važiavom ten ne miesto aplankyt, o Jacko pamatyt.

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.

Opener’15

It was my very first Opener. (2015 July 1-4 in Gdynia). For us it was such a magical time because we waited for it whole year. We were talking about line-ups and artists and preparing for festival since September 1st in 2014 when we bought fan tickets.

I took Zenit11 camera with Kodak Color Plus film. Actually, it is forbidden to take camera to Opener area but they do not consider Zenit as professional one – so they let me in. I also was using Polaroid 600 camera there.

2015 Opener Line-up had Alabama Shakes, A$AP Rocky, Alt-J, Chet Faker, Die Antwoord (!!), Disclosure, Eagles of Death Metal, Faithless, Flume, Johnny Greenwood, Jose Gonzalez, Kasabian (!!), Modest Mouse, St Vincent, Swans, The Prodigy. Such a wonderful line-up for 4 days. 

Funny was always to ask people to take photo with Polaroid of all us because mostly people there were like – what to push, whats next and so on.

This shot was taken when were running to see Chet Faker. Auguste is happy because we managed to take 1 beer from car and nobody took it from us.   

Here is the most festival shot of Dziugas and Marija. I asked them to kiss and Marija found this place. They are very beautiful couple.

This is me and my close friend Tomas who is musician as well and one day he will perform at Opener Stage. I had pastel violet hair near roots.   This is one of the first shows where you see A$AP Rocky. I waited for him so much.   Beach Gdynia Babie Doly where we were resting. Its like 5km from camping. Mykolas which is first from right side looks like he is representing dentist job.

This place was our safe spot. If someone loses you, you know where to find your friend. 

The Feel of Freedom

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!

 

Roque Nublo and owners

Film taken in 2018, February, in Roque Nublo, Gran Canaria. In 1st and 2nd you see young French father who climbed to this peak together with his child and father. 3rd photograph is about German couple. They had just moved in, somewhere in Germany. When you are in mountains you are alone or you are with someone. Pity, but I was on my own, sitting, climbing and wondering how beautiful it would be to play here with my friend, with Mario. We will go to the mountains, soooon!

Ir kalnuose visada būna taip – vieni pamato ir nori lipti žemyn, išsigalvoja kaip nori namo ar tikina esą pavargę. Apačioje visada būna ko užkasti ir atsigerti. Kiti užkopę mato neprieitas vietas ir kalnų grindinis, kur galėtų prisėsti. Teritorija pasisavina ir ten lieka, žiūri, skaito, rašo arba galvoja.

Jeigu gamtoje ir yra kas nors nuostabaus, tai kalnai. Ir tik dėl to, kad jie atrodo kaip griuvėsiai. Didžiulio, mistinio miesto griuvėsiai. (Sigitas)

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?”. ?‍♂️
