Weathered Geylang

September 16, 2012  |  Street

Walking back to my car from my favorite Teochew porridge stall, I noticed the most amazing wall texture down a back alley. I decided to take a few shots but unfortunately I only had my 50mm so I was forced to focus only on the weathered details.

HDD Dumpster Diving

September 13, 2012  |  Street

Isn’t it fun when you plug in an old HDD full of archived photos?

Well, I have a few of them, and one of them just so happens to have images from my first M9 (for those who don’t know, I’m on my 3rd).

I was feeling a little nostalgic, so I started digging randomly through months of photos that I’d taken with said first M9 and I found this: a shot of a car snapped in Little India while out for dinner one night.┬áThe thing I loved about this car was the way the street lights reflected off it’s beautiful silver paint job…I snapped a quick shot from a low angle and went on my way.

Moral of the story? The best thing about Leica cameras is that once you get used to them, taking shots is so natural that you can do it on the fly and know the results will be great.
