Double Processed Rocket

Written by • Mar 2nd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Something pretty funny (and scary) happened at the photo lab today when I dropped by to collect a roll of Provia 400X shot with my Sprocket Rocket recently. I usually lurk outside the lab until the boss gives me the thumbs up … then I’ll crawl in only when the processing is ready. Today … while I was having a puff outside the lab … the boss appeared suddenly with a small pail … and in it was a the entire roll of developed negatives (the one I sent it!).… >> read more


I Love My Bicycle!

Another lovely Sunday spent with my family. Woke up early to bring Fitzand to the park for his regular run/cycle outing before settling down for breakfast. Fingers felt a little itchy, so I brought along my Harinezumi 2 for some random video captures. Unfortunately the rechargable battery was a little cranky … it suddenly died even while the battery indicator was showing full bar. A few attempts to resurrect it failed … and it was soon showing an empty battery indicator. Duh! I forgot to bring alone my other rechargable… >> read more

The mirror was stuck at the down position. I took the risk and bought it for only S$50 (about US$35) … hoping that I can resurrect it (despite knowing that I ain’t trained in these stuffs) and amazingly … I did! So what did I do? Hahaha! I don’t believe it myself. After trying to fire… >> read more


36 Frames : II [ndroo]

Written by • Aug 23rd, 2009 • Category: Thirty Six Frames
Once bitten twice shy. I remember very clearly the crazy rush to finish the roll of film for the first ’36 Frames’ challenge … because I was too busy and lazy to do it earlier. The roll turned out to be quite a disaster. This time … for the 2nd challenge … I decided to do it earlier but somehow haven’t figured out what to shoot. The same subject over 36 frames? Suddenly it all seemed so difficult. Hahaha. Inspiration came one evening when Fitzand was munching his apple. Eureka!… >> read more
