I (well, Charmaine to be exact - although I did all the hunting!) managed to find myself a holga before I left for my trip to india, and you know a camera + foreign, colourful country = happy time!

7 rolls of film happy to be exact, which got me quite worried because what if all 7 rolls came out like crap right! haven't touched a film camera before!

So! I am totally hooked.

and on regular 35mm film:

right, that's enough picture-spamming for now.

I'm sad!

A few neutral shots of the INDIAN OCEAN. The weather wasn't that great, and the beach apparently not the best in Kerala but is it me, but does the water look a lot more vast than what we see in Singapore? Probably from the lack of cargo ships loitering around and the lack of people confronting the rather harsh waves.

Anyway! The next three are from the digital camera. I think some people might consider this series kinda bland and boring but I love the tan, gray and pigeon blue colour scheme. I swear, I do have the customary shots of brilliant orange sunsets and a few pictures with BURSTING colour will be out up soon! But for now, take these:

And these are from the Holga! I think I will be signing off a considerable portion of my allowance of film & developing costs because I am totally loving the softness that the Holga renders pictures. And yes, I did get pictures with the crazy colour effects and you will be seeing that soon!

sometimes i think i'm a really good kid, and it annoys me!

on another note, i am back from india and am trying to figure out how to post the illustrated recount of the trip on this blog. i think i will do it in non-chronological episodic segments, and then include pictures from the holga and from other friends as subsequent annex(es)? and then there are the sketches from my travel journal. seems i am more attached to coherency than i thought..

but i do miss india already.

i also miss other things and persons!
