5 Frames… Of a slice of Amsterdam and Zaandam on Lomography Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 (35mm Format / EI 100 / Canon Canonet QL17 GIII)

Once I learned about LomoChrome Purple, I had this idea in my head of using that film to take a photo of the famous “Lego” house in Zaandam. It’s this wonderfully unique building that looks like various traditional Dutch houses stacked on top of each other. More significantly, the facade is mostly green. People who […]

The Luck gas station is a roadside landmark on North Carolina 209 is the crossroad of Luck. It is the halfway point between Hot Springs and Lake Junaluska. Despite no real parking area, this is likely the most photographed building on NC 209. In this case, I had my wife let me hop out of […]

More than ten years ago, I came across a book entitled “Birds in Our Midst” by Chew Yen Fook published in 1991. This book is a photo essay about the birds in Singapore. Of course, in 1990s all photos were taken with film cameras equipped with manual focus lenses. I revisited this book recently and […]

5 Frames… Of Querétaro at dawn on Kodak VISION3 500T 5219 and a Hasselblad 503CX (120 Format / EI 500 / Distagon C 50mm f/4)

For a long time I wanted to use motion picture film, I found myself buying Cinestill 800T for the convenience of developing but after doing some research I found that it is not difficult to develop motion picture film with C-41 chemistry. So I bought some rolls of medium format Kodak VISION3 500T (5219) for […]

5 Frames… Around Virginia Beach on Kodak Portra 400 (Konica Hexar RF + Voigtlander Ultron 35mm f/2 MC Aspherical Type II)

“Are you taking pictures of me?” he asked somewhat curiously, somewhat annoyed. I was. He spontaneously struck a pose, I quickly took the shot. “They stole one of my guitars,” he candidly shared. “It’s okay: I have two more, motherf*ckers!” I lamented the unfortunate turn of events. Seemingly unfazed, he replied, “I only need one […]

5 Frames… Around Norwich’s Wensum river on Silberra Color 100 (35mm Format / El 100 / Konica Auto S3 With Hexanon 38mm f/1.8)

I’ve been collecting vintage lenses and film cameras now for the past year or so. Not that I’ve never shot film before, I got my first 35mm camera back in the late 1990s (a Centon 100 kit) — I couldn’t afford the more popular brands at the time. After that, my love for photography grew […]

5 Frames…. Of 30 year expired Orwocolor NC21 ISO 100 film at London’s River Thames

Back in the 1980s, I briefly worked for a film processing service in London’s West End. From time to time, people would drop in a mysterious Orwo branded film that our labs couldn’t handle because (they said) it used a strange propriety process that originated “behind the Iron Curtain” and could only be processed there.
