I bought a disposable film camera last month. I’m no professional photographer or an expert with film – my first and only experience with film was last year, when I bought the same camera to document the last few days of school.
I’m trying to make it a point to buy a camera once a month, at least in the short term. With it I hope to be able to document how I’m spending this break of mine, and also to capture the beauty of our little country. Singapore is actually quite beautiful, but we often overlook this beauty and take it for granted. Which is a pity actually, because we go to other countries and to us, these places are “the most beautiful place on Earth” but we can’t even appreciate our own home.
Taken during one of my breaks from work while I was interning in a law firm in the CBD
Hong Lim Complex, Chinatown
South Buona Vista Road (Paddy Hills!!)
(I don’t even remember where the above photo was taken but I like it anyway)
Ghim Moh / Flock Cafe
Tiong Bahru / Plain Vanilla / Forty Hands
Botanic Gardens on a Sunday
Potato Head Folk // Chinatown
Artistry x SAM in film
On the way to Hoopla (the flowers along the road were really pretty)
National Museum of Singapore in evening
Bloomsbury Bakers / Haji Lane (which came out blurry sob)
Chun Tin Road / The Bravery (detox day)
Most of these photos came out underexposed. I think it’s because I pretty much didn’t use the flash at all in this roll of film, so that’s something to take note of for May’s camera. It’s quite a pity because I took some night shots with this camera, and they came out completely dark. That being said, this camera works wonders in bright light! Hopefully the next roll of film will be better : ) It’s such an exciting journey!
