Day @ Chinatown

Day @ Chinatown

Went shooting in Chinatown with my Leica M3 and a roll of Kentmere 400.

Chinatown

Yong tau fu stall at the basement of Chinatown market. I was attracted by the big ??? signage, looked so unreal in a Singapore market. The man at the left did not appear too happy with me taking a picture of his stall. After I was done, I just smiled and walked off quickly. Love how the shot generic valtrex vs brand name turned out, especially the lighting and shadow around the stall.

He knew I was watching him as I took a while to wait for the crowd to clear before taking the shot. When I finally lifted up my camera, he put on a really sweet smile. *nice*

Went through a roll of expired (2005) Kodak Professional BW400CN film on the Leica M3. The film came free with one of the earlier camera purchase on eBay. Have to say that I like cipla generic valtrex reviews this film very much, very fine grains and rich tones.  Development was done at Fotohub and scanned at 16 base high res.

Shot with Leica M3 on Lomo 800 film

This trip, without the little girl, was a very different one. We did a lot more walking (Central to Sheung Wan to Sai Wan and back, online valtrex generic easily clocking 5-6km), and eating at more "local" places that typically is not going to be child friendly. Good fun, but again, too short. 

Old Singapore Playgrounds

Old Singapore Playgrounds

this would probably look creepy at night?

We went searching for old playgrounds in Singapore over the weekend. Armed with my Leica M3 and a roll of Lomo 400 film, first stop was the distinctive dragon playground in Toa Payoh Lor 6. While these dragon playgrounds used to be a common sight in HDB estates, there are probably now just 1-2 of them left today. This one in Toa Payoh and probably another in Ang Mo Kio area.

Next we headed off to Dover Vista at Dover Road. The playground is just behind the coffee house that I used to frequent medicament pro valacyclovir back in ACJC. It is in pretty bad shape. The original metal merry-go-round has been removed, swings were gone too. What's left is just a pelican, a turtle and a rabbit structure.

Shooting with my Leica M3 was such a pleasant experience. While I'm definitely a little too slow with all the manual focusing, aperture control, etc that makes it almost impossible to catch my little monkey in action, all the manual work is certainly forcing me to think harder, frame better to get a overall much better shots.
