Camera: Minolta CLE Lens: Minolta M-Rokkor 40mm f/2 Film: black and white Kodak TMax 400 Shot at night, wide open at f/2. Exposed to the highlight on the ground which gave me a shutter speed of 1/30 sec if I remember correctly. Have a blessed weekend, everyone.
Ceki is a card game popular within the Peranakan and Hokkien community. I don’t know how to play it though. This was taken on the night before my brother’s wedding in January 2003. Family members gathered for dinner and then played this ceki card game. Small amount of money were involved just to make it
Shot on black and white Kodak TMax 400 film. It was pushed 2 stops to 1600. I met this boy practicing his Chinese flute at the Stamford Arts Center last weekend. I first heard the loud sound the flute produced when I was inside the compound, hence I walked around to track where it came

I was shooting with my Leica M9 and Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f/1.2
A little boy needs daddy For many, many things; Like holding him high off the ground Where the sunlight sings! Like being the deep music That tells him all is right When he awakens frantic with The terrors of the night. Like being the great mountain That rises in his heart And shows him how
I decided to try out this lomography after ignoring it for so many years. But I decided to try out the unusual one, hence I bought the Sprocket Rocket panorama camera. It takes 2 frames per picture. And the cool thing about it, you can shoot the image on the entire film including those where
Howdy everyone! I am in Bandung, Indonesia now and will shoot a lot using my iPhone. I do bring with me my Leica M9, Bessa R3A with few rolls of film and my Sprocket Rocket lomo camera. But you will see photos taken with them later when I am back in Singapore next week. So,
Panning photography with iPhone, even though it’s lacking some control, is very fun. Like I mentioned in the previous post, I used an app called Slow Shutter Cam to create these panning images. They are not perfect, but at least they give you the sense of movement in the images. So, here are more panning
