It’s April Fool’s, but I thought it was a brand new month to start anew. March felt like a million years passing through. And I’m blaming it on Mercury Retrograde 🤷
Today I’m sharing the results from Konica EFJ (or Konica Pop), loaded with Kodak Colorplus 200. I was pretty pleased, despite the light leak in half of the pictures. It could be due to the sides, where there’s suppose to be a layer of sponge/rubber, but can’t expect an old camera to keep up with time.
Had a film outing with Sherlene @ Joo Chiat/Katong area to catch a glimpse of the Peranakan Houses.
Off to Malaysia for Lunar New Year!
I have more shots in another camera, but I’m not done with the roll (yet). Guess i’ll hurry and get out of the house since the retrograde had me staying at home 24/7. The rain is not helping either 😁
A vlog might come out soon from my trip to Japan last September. I’m working with the footage(s) right now, and letting my creative juices do its thing. It’s been awhile;;
May April be a better month for everyone. Take care of yourself first.
I’m back to update this blog, for I have some free time after leaving my job on the last day of January. I went back to Malaysia for the annual CNY celebrations at Grandpa’s. Felt good to have some time out from the city. Well, now I’m back to reality, and trying to sort out my life again.
SO! This will be the last of Fujica DL100, as I’ll try to focus getting my film right with the other cameras.
Once bitten, twice shy. I finally figured out how to load a film properly into the Konica EFJ. (The camera that resulted in a blank film once) I shall try to develop it asap!
Now, we’re continuing the Exploring Little India series from last post!
Another day, another film day. This time, we were off to National Gallery Singapore!
We ended the day at Marina Bay Sands.
Next part of this film was taken at my (pretty young) uncle’s place. Her daughter is my cousin, and it was her first birthday!
Dear Diana, you’re truly a princess.
Didn’t realized I was left with 3 shots to this film, and the ending seemed kind of abrupt.
Till next time! Can’t wait to see the results taken with the Konica EFJ 📷
How is everyone doing? I started a full-time job from November, so my cloudy days are over. Now I’m almost 1 month into work, and it’s full of ups and downs. Sometimes I feel like I’m numb. Other times, I feel inadequate.
Back to film!
There was this one week where my Mom suggested to pay a visit to the Shuanglin Temple @Toa Payoh, and another temple @bugis. And so we embarked on our journey.
Surprised to see some really old stores that reminded me of the childhood.
Pasar Malam @Toa Payoh
Surprised they put up signs saying “no photography”;;;
Film Day @Little India
Decided to visit Little India for a film shoot one weekend with my brother. His film roll was blank 😂 so he got nothing this time!
Love the people smiling for my shot!
↑ This shot was captured better on film than my iPhone hahahaha
All. The. Colors!!!! I love it. This part of Singapore is definitely vibrant.
Another day at a different temple @Bugis
It’s also a tourist spot.
I’ve been using my Fujica for a few rolls now. It never disappoints, and most shots are on point! I’m really happy about this.
The next film roll was also taken with Fujica… I’ll switch it up next time! See you next post 💕
I finally had film photos not taken with my Canonet QL17. Introducing Fujica DL100 that I purchased in Tokyo. I was planning on getting a point-and-shoot camera due to the ease of usage, and this guy came along. I fell in love because of the sound it makes with every shot. Warning: Might be embarrassing if you’re taking pictures in a quiet museum.
All pictures were taken in Singapore.
Neighborhood walks with Mom / @Chong Pang
I think photography is all about appreciating the beauty around us, and having the courage to capture it.
Continuous pictures from last post / @CHIJMES & Gilman Barracks
Such a lovely place! I didn’t even know about this area until Sherlene brought me along.
Museum hopping we go / @Gilman Barracks
Had to stop by for Ice Cream @Creamier under such weather…
Thank you for bringing me to cool places.
I managed to finish up shooting Film Project #8 on Sunday, so I’m sending it for developing soon. See you next post!
I’ve watched Full Metal Alchemist (鋼の錬金術師) and One Punch Man (ワンパンマン). Recently, I’ve been enjoying Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma (食戟のソーマ) on Netflix. The food details were especially pleasing. But please do not watch when hungry!
Anyway… I feel like I’m slowly getting a hang of my Canonet QL17. I’ve been talking about this camera with every film post, but this is a tough one to crack, or is it just me?
This was taken on the rooftop garden of Takashimaya located at Shinjuku Station. The pair was seen walking around the garden, and it was the cutest thing. Had to capture a moment or two.
Grill or no grill?
We joined a Wagyu Beef Festival out of the blue while exploring Tokyo.
Barber Shop / @Singapore
Accompanied my brother for his haircut at the local barber shop nearby, and I took the opportunity to snap a few pictures 😀
Wet Market / @Singapore
The Glasshouse / @CHIJMES, Singapore
Hi, you’re up here, my favorite hipster!
Gilman Barracks / @Singapore
Fave shot of this film roll ↑
A bridal shoot was taking place ↑
I carried two cameras along for the CHIJMES & Gilman Barracks day out with Sherlene, so please look forward to the next film post, taken with a Fujica DL100. Trust me, it was a lot prettier (and easier since it’s a point-and-shoot).
Today I’m sharing my pictures from my second trip to Japan of the year, in September. Most of my pictures turn out to reflect my vision without my glasses. While I still struggle to find a job, it sure does gives me time to explore and keep up with my film projects.
Film failure #2: I bought a Konica EFJ Auto Date in Nagoya (this trip), but the film did not went in, so I was practically taking nothing. Moment of loss when the film shop told me that it was an empty roll. (I’m keeping a record on my failures here.)
Film is definitely an adventure.
↑ My clearest picture turned out to be blocked by my entry ticket to the Golden Pavilion. SMH.
↑ Phew. This was good!
You’re welcome to laugh at my absurdity.
↓ May nana-chan’s sunshine vibes lighten up my post of shortsightedness.
↑↑↑↑ At least, this was wonderful.
I went for a shoot around Singapore the past week.
Two film projects currently developing at the store.
Hi friends! I’m back with more film pictures. I have to admit pursuing film has been burning a hole in my pocket, considering I’m still broke and jobless since returning home. I wish I could’ve pursued a hobby that cost lesser, but it sure does makes me happy.
So I took with another disposable camera that my brother was using halfway through. It requires less of trying to figure out how to conduct my shots, and a lot faster to capture specific moments. It turned out a lot better than my pictures from my Canonet QL17, this is depressing…
Less talk, more visuals!
↑ My favorite Roti Prata shot!
Best I could do with a disposable film camera taken behind a glass (since I can’t use flash for sure haha)
Japan: Mostly Osaka
↓ Here are my favorite street pictures taken in Osaka ♥
How people dress themselves on these streets is definitely a pleasure to look at. It’s as if a series of fashion magazine transformed into real life humans, flashing before your eyes like a runway. A good inspirational walk if you’re trying to get some fashion ideas.
Did you spot the Glico running man?
Well, see you next post!
I hope you’re prepared to feel like you’re short-sighted with my next batch of pictures, cause it sure does look like pictures taken without glasses.
