This week’s entry is a tribute to a few places that sadly won’t be around after 2017: the Rochor Centre (which we visited last year and featured on our website), and the Sungei Road Thieves’ Market (a place we described in detail on our website too). It has been many months since we explored the locations, and to imagine that these gems will be gone for good is a sad thought. Therefore, we decided to visit these locations one last time!
While we rue the closing of both locations, we have gained a deep appreciation for capturing evocative images so that we can fondly reminisce of our experiences in the future. Therefore, we brought another newly-acquired camera (which we will no doubt review in the near future), the Mamiya Universal Press. This analog camera is specially designed to use different film formats such as the Polaroid packfilm (FP-100c) and various medium film formats (such as the 120 film, 6×9 etc). Furthermore, this particular camera has been modified to accept Impossible Project film and the Instax Wide film! Overall, its utility cannot be understated, and it will serve us well in the future!
Lastly, we took some expired Impossible B&W film (for SX-70), and we were blown away by the sheer quality of the f/2.8, 100m Mamiya Sekor lens!
Following from our earlier website entry, the Future World Exhibition, we continue our fascinations with museum! We loooooove going to museums in general, because it gives us a chance to gain knowledge about events and experiences that we normally would not encounter in our daily lives! The ArtScience Museum is one such location which allows us to do so. We attended two exhibitions which is still being hosted there (at the time of this entry): NASA – A Human Adventure and Journey to Infinity: Escher’s World of Wonder. Here, we brought our dependable cameras, namely the the Fujifilm XT-10 and the Mint Instantflex!
This week, we head to the far east of Singapore to explore Changi Beach and the Changi Point Costal Walk, which extends alongside the beach. We chose to utilise the public holiday (of Chinese New Year) to visit a secluded location and take some non-urban photos (which has dominated our website for the past few weeks, admittedly).
