Expired Film // Singapore

Cities and Landscapes

About half a year ago, one of my dad’s colleagues passed me his old Contax T2. I found an expired roll of Kodak Gold 200 film in a cabinet and decided to practice some photography skills using the new camera and the expired film. This first photo is one I took on the way to a friend’s house near Thomson. We walked along the concrete pavement and I caught a glimpse of this motorbike hidden in the shade of a tree.

The next two photos are also in the Thomson area, the wall in real life is actually not pink at all, but rather orange! The mix between expired film and cheap processing resulted in a strange light pink colour while the blue sky was tinted almost green.

This photo was taken through the glass of the bus window on the way to Junction 8 Mall in Bishan from Thomson. The sun was just beginning to set and I thought that the orange detail on the buildings played nicely with the soft blue, almost purple sky. The processing and expired film resulted in an extremely faded image and the colours all muted. I actually really liked the reflection of the light in the window which appear as green/yellow streaks. They contrast the cloud trails in the sky nicely.

 

 

 

 

 

Bishan Park // Singapore

Cities and Landscapes

A few months ago (September) I went for a walk in Bishan Park at around 5 p.m. The sun’s quite good at this time, and the clouds were very nice. My dad was busy playing Pokemon Go (as was my mother) but I instead looked for nice photo opportunities. The HDB apartment blocks are also very nice and actually quite modernly designed. Wish the weather now would be like what the weather was like then. Now it just rains in the morning and the if the sky is this blue, it means that it’ll storm in the afternoon.
