On The Street...As I See It

Christopher Pereira, The Tree Wizard

I was doing street photography this afternoon along Orchard area. When I arrived  at ION, I saw a man doing self-portrait shoot with an Elephant art display, displayed outside ION sidewalks (as shown below)

It rains out of a sudden and everyone takes shelter. While waiting for the rain to stop, I went up to the man and asked if I can take his pictures and he gladly agreed. I recognized him as I met him before at Sculptor Square three years ago during Eye e City 2008. The man is Christopher Pereira, The Tree Wizard. I was doing black & white film for Eye e City 2008 and this is one of the last 2 shots I did.

My First Try on Polaroid

What you see here is a Polaroid image which is my very first test shot. A week ago a long time friend of mine gave me a Polaroid 636 Talking Camera. Well I have never took photos with a Polaroid camera before. Neither do I fancy. Well I thought it would be fun to try out some shots with it since I got one now. However I wouldn't know if it still works. So I went down to a local camera store and bought the new Impossible (brand label actually) PX600 Polaroid film with ISO 600 and grey frame, as seen here in the image shown above. Yes the film is in monochrome with sepia tone.

I do not know much about Polaroid history but here's what I've found on the internet for your reference. Make the jump to read more.

Eye e City 2010 Book Collection + 1 sad news & 1 good news

This afternoon I went to collect my copy of Eye é City 2010 publication book (shown above). In fact I got 2 copies because I used to help the Eye Committee as a Volunteer and as a Facilitator. In addition, I even got to choose 2 more extra copies of past Eye é City publication books. I chose 2005 and 2008. There's a sad news and a good news. So make the jump to read more.

TLR Street Photos

How times flies. I've been away for quite a long time since my last blog post. In early January 2010, I blogged about TLR Street Photography and I was too busy with many other things I forgot to post some of the street photos I took with my TLR camera until I went through my Blog Archive.

Well, fortunately I already got the first few rolls developed and here are a few that I edited. Make the jump to view the pictures.
