Visited this nice place tegamisha, out in the west side of town. Koga-san the bookseller kindly showed us a few 70s Camera Mainichi magazines. For some reason, the camera ads left a lasting impression.

There will only ever be one jimi hendrix. Not one of his famous songs, but one of the more memorable songs to me.

Yes we candle

Went for a wonder in omotesando after work to see this.

and it was more interesting to see than I expected from my shooting perspective. Also decided to bring the dslr tonight for a “routine workout” . Whilst i dread the thought of carrying such size and weight these everyday these days, it was kinda nice though to shoot as much as i want without thinking how many rolls i need to develop after. Moreso seeing results instantly from experimenting in different light conditions and angles too is what i like about it.
About the exhibitions on display, people are just so talented when it comes to craft/design work in tokyo.

Friday, April 17th, 2009

An interesting (but long) read for anyone on a rainy day for inspiration.

Or maybe some real chocolate will do the same trick.

It could be the influence of shooting and developing my own 35mm film for photography that i’ve found this other type of film to be of interest. This site, has an amazing collection and display of cassette tapes from the past few decades. Packaging for cassette tapes here.

old pics

After taking up photography a few years back, any old photograph that I might have seen before doesn’t look the same anymore. I stumbled upon the archive for the State library of NSW, and whilst i’ve seen many of these on tv programs and old history books, I think it makes an interesting series on its own.
