Rokucyoume Café in Half Frames.


The first post on Rokucyoume Cafe (六丁目cafe) can be found here. We had such good natural light that day, it definitely shows in these pictures. I don’t use the Golden Half as much as I’d like to mainly because it takes extra long for me to use up 72 frames but also because it’s too much of a daylight camera. In the right sunlight, though, it makes mindless snapping so much fun.

P.S. We’re off to our vacation in Bali tomorrow so I’m going to schedule a few wordless posts until we return, I hope to come back with lots of pictures. In the mean time, keep shooting film!

Bopiliao Historic Block.


We were lost, for a while, amidst the well-preserved shop houses and busy streets of Bopiliao (剝皮寮歷史街區). The Wanhua district is one of the oldest parts of Taipei and perhaps most visited for the famous Longshan Temple (艋舺龍山寺). I have a soft spot in my heart for aged communities that have been left behind by time, like this one. We watched the sun set for the day on a footbridge just outside one of the night markets and it was such a perfect end to the day.

On the Golden Half.

I’m really, really excited to share these – the last time I used my Golden Half was almost a year ago and if you’ve read my Film Camera Guide, you might remember that I’ve never particularly rendered results I am pleased with using this camera. 72 frames is just so difficult to finish up I end up snapping really mindlessly, which doesn’t help in producing okay photographs at all.

This time, though, I told myself to be as patient as I can and finally got photos that work as double frames, photos that I always hoped to take with this camera. Better late than never, I suppose!
