Shoreditch street art

My parents came to visit this week and requested to see some of the street art in Shoreditch. Of course I obliged to such a surprising and uncharacteristic request by a couple of people in their 60s.

Trip to Margate

On Saturday, I went on a day trip to Margate together with a small group of my analog photography enthusiast friends. We had planned the trip ages ago, so we were lucky that the weather turned out fantastic.

I decided to shoot my Polaroid land camera on that day, using Fuji FP-100c film.

Seems like spring has finally sprung in London

Last week I had the chance to borrow the LC-A 120 camera. It’s the medium format version of the LC-A, a camera that I’ve been using for years and which is probably my favourite camera!

Finally the sun came out and the sky changed its colour from grey to blue, so I was out shooting with a friend and managed to produce a few shots that I really like. Continue reading

#thepingpongproject

I have just about emerged from a crazy three months of learning how to code – more about that in my other blog (yes, of course I have two. Who doesn’t?!) and was asked to participate in a photography project on Instagram.

Now, I like to make a big deal of how much I’m into my analog photography and how much better photos look when they’re shot on film but in reality, I’m also quite a bit into my instagramming…

Of course I said yes – anything that gets me shooting or at least thinking about photography again is great. And as an added bonus, the project is a collaboration with the wonderful and talented Zana, pictured below, flying with me in Penang last year:

Anyway, the Ping Pong Project is a fun collaboration between two photographers who alternate in posting photos on the same Instagram account. Or to use the official explanation from the organisers of the project:

#thepingpongproject is a weekly back and forth visual conversation between 2 photographers. a new game starts every monday.

Zana and I have been doing this since Monday and we’ve already racked up quite a few photos. The last one she posted was of yours truly instagramming her food – it made me laugh so much!

Old Japanese farm houses in Osaka

Osaka has an outdoor museum dedicated to old farm houses. It’s a bit of a trek to get to and probably not worth it if you have very limited time in Osaka but I had five days, so I decided to check it out. It was quite pleasant.

And they provided mosquito repellent at the entrance! Japan is just such a civilised place.
