Geylang Serai Night Market

Geylang Serai comes alive during the month of Ramadhan with many vendors selling foods, snacks, fabrics, carpet, clothes and many others. Temporary tents were set up to host these vendors and you should really come to enjoy the atmosphere of the bazaar. Forget Orchard road. Get sweaty and have fun. To cool you down, find the ice cream man above and enjoy his little tricks entertaining the customers while he is serving you.

The photos here are from the first roll shot with my new old film camera, the Olympus OM-1N and Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 which I bought from eBay recently. Majority of them were shot at f/1.4 due to low lighting condition. The film is the black and white Kodak Tri-X 400. Enjoy the rest of the photos below.MORE +

Olympus OM-1N and Zuiko 50mm f/1.4

I recently bought a film camera, the Olympus OM-1N with Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 lens, from eBay. Was lucky because the nice guy let me bid even though he would only take US bidders initially. Thanks again! And honestly, I got a steal. The camera is still in a very nice condition. And it comes with the cool looking strap too. I have not had it checked, but it seems to work well. I shall know when the first roll of film comes back from the lab.

The Olympus OM system was first introduced in 1972. The OM-1N MD version was released around 1979. I am not sure when exactly mine was manufactured. Mine seems to be a bit later judging from the serial number. It is a joy to use the compact camera body with great timeless design. Mine is the silver version as you can tell from the photos here. Should I be looking for the black version for collection?  :)

Oh, by the way, I wasted one roll of memories, when the first roll of Fuji Neopan 400 I used was not properly loaded, which I didn’t know until much later unfortunately. I was more careful when I loaded the second roll. It was Kodak Tri-X 400. I finished it last night when I brought the camera out for a night shooting at Geylang Serai. Sending the roll for processing soon and will share again here. Have a great weekend, everyone! MORE +

In the dark alley of Little India

I shot these images at night in Little India using the Canon P rangefinder camera and Canon 35mm f/2 LTM lens. The film was the black and white Kodak Tri-X 400.

Canon P is a fully mechanical rangefinder camera. No battery needed to operate the camera. This makes metering a little tricky. But if you are an iPhone user, you can download this little app to use as an exposure meter. My Canon P was probably produced around 1960. Bought quite cheap locally here in Singapore.MORE +

Chopsticks – Holistic

The guy was in pain as the Chopstick man was giving him the treatment on his leg. His expression says it all. Shot with Canon P and Canon 35mm f/2 LTM lens on Kodak Tri-X 400 black and white film. I cropped it to have a square format.
