Kyoto : Color Overdose

Written by • Nov 29th, 2013 • Category: Digital stuffs
I’m back! Okay … maybe I have lost my mojo to shoot for a while now but in an attempt to get back on track, I am shooting more during this trip to Kyoto. I have an almost finished roll in my LC-W. Yeah … a little too slow compared to my old trigger-happy ways but hey … a roll is better than no roll at all. Isn’t it? Anyway … here are some digital ones … shot using the Pentax K3 I picked up recently. Lovely camera! Here are… >> read more

One Roll, Three Countries

Written by • May 1st, 2013 • Category: Fun with film
The title of this entry (One Roll, Three Countries) may sound like some cool project I did but honestly … it is just a simple title to describe this roll of Neopan 400 loaded into my GR21 when I was in Japan early this year. As I have been struck by some strange illness called ‘no-mood-to-shoot’ (which is slowly recovering), I took only a handful of shots during that trip and then despite my desperate attempt to finish the 36 frames here in Singapore later … it still ended up… >> read more

Drops Of Miracle

Written by • Jan 15th, 2013 • Category: Fun with film
This is a roll of Fujifilm Neopan 400 that I thought would never see the light of day. It is the 2nd test roll that I fed to the Ricoh GR21 in Japan and the roll was left in my drawer for months as I had run out of developer and just couldn’t find time to go replenish it. Last Sunday … I got a little crazy and there was this voice inside my head that told me to get the roll developed. The problem was … I still haven’t… >> read more

More ‘Now what?’ Photos

Written by • Dec 5th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Following the earlier set of ‘now what?’ photos … here are more of those photos that I took … and then had to try hard to convince myself to dig them out from the SD card, look at them and try pick a few to keep. Yeah … those landscape, cityscape and all those stuffs that somehow I ain’t too interested in photographing (but still guilty of doing so to cure my trigger happy fingers). I miss the cold! 🙁 Not only I can’t convince myself to stick to either… >> read more

MZ-S Roll 2 From Japan

Written by • Nov 29th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
This is the 2nd roll I shot with the Pentax MZ-S. It is the 2nd and final roll of color (xpro-ed) film I shot before I switched to using the GR21 with black & white film. I can’t remember exactly what that roll of expired film was but ermm … nevermind. 😛 I suspect that if I had not bought the GR21 and started doing some test shots with it … I might have ended up shooting 5 or more rolls with the MZ-S. It has become my favourite film… >> read more

More Lensbaby Fun In Japan

Written by • Nov 28th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Although I thought did not fire too many shots with the Lensbaby during this recent trip to Japan, I found quite a handful of images in my SD card. Maybe I was tripping the shutter in a daze! Here are a few more of them. This first one (below) was taken early one morning when I woke up (a little too) early at 7am. As I usually sleep very late … I should be still in bed … warm and comfy … but instead I chose to jump out of… >> read more

GR21 – Test Roll 1

Written by • Nov 24th, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
Loaded a roll of expired Neopan 400 the moment I bought my GR21 in Tokyo last week. As the weather was a little cranky … one day of sun and another day of drizzle … I thought it will be good to be safe and shoot with the ISO400 film to test out the camera. Well … it was a little risk I had to take as I’d only know if the camera works fine (though it looks minty) after I get the rolls developed when I’m back here in… >> read more

Japan In Analogue (Roll 1)

Written by • Nov 22nd, 2012 • Category: Fun with film
Here’s the first roll of film from my vacation last week. I didn’t shoot many rolls as I was too busy entertaining the little one (as usual). If you have seen the video (of him) I posted … you can probably guess how busy I was … being his private videographer. Anyway … here’s a roll of long expired Sensia 400 cross processed. These were shot using my Pentax MZ-S which I lugged along … planning to buy a used lens for it … but ended up not doing so… >> read more

The Damages

Written by • Nov 17th, 2012 • Category: Toys
We decided to skip the trip to the Bandai museum as I read that it only opens to pubic on weekends and Fitzand is only interested to check out the Power Rangers stuffs. As an alternative, we brought him to Hakuhinkan Toy Park near Ginza … one of the largest and best toy stores here in Tokyo. As expected … he was complaining about the long walk and train rides but this time a lot less because I promised to buy him toys. 😀 He saw many of his favourite… >> read more

The ‘Now What?’ Shots

Written by • Nov 15th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Very often I get bored and whip out my camera for some random shots. Then I’ll go back … look at them and go ‘now what?!’. That’s one big problem I have because I do not know what to do with many of the images I shoot. Most of them will involve landscapes though. Hahaha! Since I’m killing some time now while gulping a beer in the hotel room (Fitzand has gone to bed … phew!) … I ‘forced’ myself to upload a few of these ‘now what?’ photos. This… >> read more
