The last time I joined the Sunny Rehab organized by ThirtySix was in 2010. Did I miss the one in 2011 or did they not organize one? Anyway … after Fitzand’s music lesson in the morning last Sunday … I brought him & his mommy to Bollywood Veggies to meet the many photography (film/Lomo/whatever!) fans there. They chartered a bus to bring them to few places planned for the day and since we were late … we had to skip the goat farm and started our fun at the vegetable… >> read more

Finally I put the (very little) effort to try shove in a little AF fine tuning adjustment to my K5 paired with 85mm lens. I’ve always had this feeling that it is back/front focusing a little but couldn’t bothered to fine tune it (until today) and after a few minutes of testing and tweaking … eventually a +2 value for the AF fine tuning seems necessary for this solid old lens.
Since I’m sort of ‘grounded’ today … the only ‘target’ I could test the AF fine adjustment on …… >> read more
Spent half a day at a pool with Fitzand and some of his classmates today. The school/childcare will be organizing swimming lessons for the kiddos next year and this morning was an intro course to let the parents know what the kiddos will be doing.
Of course my little boss was super happy and even refused to leave after the session ended after lunch. Bet me must be looking forward to the lessons.
Knowing him … it will not be just boring lessons … as he will definitely be clowning… >> read more

This entry is supposed to be about 2 tests/experiments with film that I tried out today in between all the busy tasks … but unfortunately I screwed up one of them and still couldn’t figure out the second one. Well … I’ll try again tomorrow or another day.
I’ll just post these few snapshots I took of Fitzand today while out shopping. He had a wonderful time as usual and I picked up a free Sony iPod/iPhone dock for him so that he can play his favorite songs from my… >> read more
Another weekend coming to an end and my battery is pretty much flat … with just enough juice to post this entry … then off to bed. Met up with some friends at Farmart this evening … enjoyed some … ermm … ‘fermented malt & barley’ in the bright daylight as well as munching some yummies. Fitzand had big fun feeding goats too! Jimmy (from ThirtySix) gave me an Instant Kit for the Lomo LC-Wide and since I had my instant back with me … I burned slightly over a… >> read more
Received an email from Bill … the co-founder & editor of Composing With Images Press and thought this might interest some of you toy camera fans out there. Not only your masterpieces has the chance to be included in a photo book … but you are also doing a great part in helping raise fund to help others.

Apart from gulping down lots of yummy beer yesterday at Whitchurch Rd area, we did loiter around that area for some photos. At one point … we were even told that ‘hey … this is private property!’ when we were shooting some swing in some open area. Duh. Anyway … still I managed to finish a roll of long expired Kodak T400N 120 and got it developed today.
Like the BW400CN, the T400CN doesn’t give too much of a contrast. Still pretty usable for times when I wanna shoot black… >> read more
Finally time to post some photos of my X-100 … all ‘dressed up’ and looking pretty. Yeah I know … I know … it ain’t a rangefinder but just a ‘Casio rangefinder’ (a friend calls it that) that tries to look like a retro camera. Let’s not go there.
Sorry if the colors of the case looks different in all the photos. Hahaha! I was in a rush to go fetch my boy from school and had only 5 minutes to snap some photos without much time to mess with… >> read more
Joined some friends from LomotionSG for a World Pinhole Day outing to the zoo today and after being kicked outta bed by Fitzand at around 7am … it was a really tiring outing. To make things worse … weather was ultra hot and wifey was complaining about being hot and tired. Baaaah!!! Luckily I still managed to finish a roll of 120 on the Multi Pinhole Operator but I ain’t sure if anything is gonna come outta it. We’ll see tomorrow when I make a trip to the lab.
Anyway… >> read more
