Lens:  Kaimal Mark II 
Film:  Float 
Flash: off

"When I first became a Hipstamatic user, I immediately fell in love with the Kaimal Mark II lens. Probably because the red tones reminded me of our old family photographs, which I saw when I was a child. This lens gives me a feeling of nostalgia and though it has rich red tones, I find it delicate and melancholic. Recently I wanted to try this beautiful lens with a film that I don’t use very often. Float film has the same yellow tones which again gives me a sense of nostalgia. And the dirty textured borders make me feel I am watching a scene from an old movie. I tried this combo on some of the classic Istanbul locations, Hagia Sophia, New Mosque and Golden Horn and I think it worked pretty well. I find Kaimal Mark II lens charming for other reasons too: because it was named after an Indian prince, it makes me dream of using it in its homeland. India is one of the places I want to see the most on earth and I hope one day I'll get a chance to try Kaimal Mark II to capture the beauty of India.."
