Work Space/Common Room.

Welcome to the common room of Parachute Hostel, which also houses my little work space. This hardly qualifies as a tour but I hope you enjoy snippets of corners around the space I spend most of my time in. We have floor to ceiling windows so there is always ample sunlight in the day, the best way a room should be lit.

Happy Weekend.

I have lots of buttons to be sewn over this weekend, although I’m really hoping for some time to head out with my camera. That said, I just got back 9 rolls of film from the photo center, I’d probably have better luck trying to find time going through and resizing them on my computer. Happy weekend, you all, take some pictures! :)

Making Waffles.

Making waffle paste is an almost-daily routine at the cafe after it closes for the day. I am not much good at making food but waffle paste is easy enough – just lots of mixing and measuring. I love these pictures: not that they are very well-taken at all but because they truly reflect what our daily lives are like. It’s the one thing that’s really important to me when it comes to photography, little rectangle images of memories.

A Birthday Dinner.

These were from the dinner on my partner’s birthday back in May. We had been craving for barbecue and went to one of those places that opened until 3 in the morning (with a resident DJ!) after we closed the cafe for the day. They even had someone cook and de-shell prawns for us – it was really cool, like watching a super professional teppanyaki chef perform for us.

In other food news, we had really awesome Japanese food tonight. Can’t wait to share those pictures soon!

FuHe Bridge Flea Market / Part III.

Here’s the final set of pictures I took the second time we went to the FuHe Bridge flea market. This was actually my first actual roll of film taken on the Zenit TTL except for the test roll and I completely fell in love with the camera. I suppose it was due to a pretty good choice of film on my part – the Fujicolor 100 – the breezy pastel tones reflected the mood of the place and day I wanted to capture so well. You could say that I fell in love with the film, too, and now Fujifilm 100 and 200 are my favorites to shoot with!
