Negscans from 2 rolls of Neopan SS 100+2. Some frames are really old while the others are recently. I'll try to put them in order...

Two frames from Ngasem when I went there with a friend who's looking out for some cats... turned out the market was quiet, in fear of avian influenza which around that time infected some people in the city.

Of course I just had to plunge back into the 'familiar face photography' when I'm not shooting anything else...

This is pretty much how most of my friends gonna spend this semester:

So much time, so few things to do.

Even choosing what to eat can take quite a considerable time.

...No, I don't know what this frame is all about.

Second roll.

Ucok's head kinda mess up this frame. Grrr.

A bakwan vendor coming inside the campus on a rainy day... how nice. Sure hope he's coming again.

Last Sunday I took a stroll around the old campus complex hoping to find something but came home with only a couple of frames... I'm getting that reluctant feeling to get the camera up again, ugh.

Some old stuff from an exhibition in the architecture campus:

Aaand.... that's it. This entry is really pretty boring, I know. :S
Been a while again, but this time really because I don't take as much pics as I used to. Lacks of mood/inspiration/whatever. Was asked to shoot for some farewell ceremony for the graduating students, many of which are people I know... so I didn't see a reason to say no. Was a little awkward though to hold the digital again after handling the FM2 for a while. For some reason it almost feels... stupid. Lots of people in the architecture campus have DSLRs too now, but strangely I'm not really excited about it. Cause I somehow feel it has become more like a trend instead of a real interest in photography... lots of these folks... I haven't even seen their works. If there's any. ;) I start to sound like an arrogant prick now, heh. Let's hope I'm wrong about this. I do see some potentials in some of the kids... the funny thing is that they're the people *without* the DSLRs... go figure.

Enough about the ranting, here are some snaps from that day.

The clocks were the gift souvenirs for the graduates, with the names of the graduates from that period written into the face of the clock. The cool thing was (well... kinda), the name of the receiver was printed differently from the rest of names so everyone got their own 'personal' clock.

A friend of mine (now that's a proud smile! :D) with his parents, looking at the design of the final exams of the students.

Scenes from around the place:

One of the professors taking pictures of the graduates. I think Galih noticed me shooting this, he's smiling in the background. :o Also notice the guy taking picture in the right part.

Another friend of mine, talking with his mother before the event started.

This time with his girlfriend who's also graduating. Aww.

Guest seats, mostly parents of the graduating students. That's Mr. Sigit on the right part... he was in double role that day. He's a a lecturer in the campus but at that moment also a parent of a graduating student. Funnily his place on the guest seats kinda reflected that.

From the outside. Lots of empty seats in the lecturer side of the room.

After that it's mostly boring shots... Speeches, handshakes, and stuff. But after it's finished...

Lunch time!

It was raining though.

I like the mood of this particular shot. The joy present in the foreground, contrasting the stern looks of the two, no, three guys in the background.

Galih with his girlfriend. Another "awww" moment. And yes, I fucking hate the white umbrella too.

A shot I took for personal interest.

A quick panning action.

The little sister of a friend, calling out to her dad so they could get something to eat together.

Notice how the lady passing between the posing family and the camera isn't visible in the LCD... ghost? Naaah, that's the sensor of pocket camera showing its weakness: lag. ;)

And that's all for now. Hope this finds you all well!

Some negscans from an expired roll of Superia 200.

How daily life in my home looks like. Kinda.

What does a reversed 50mm lens do? Making things look bigger. A.k.a macro, for you fancy word lovers. Never tried it before, so I thought I'd give it a shot. No, I don't have an adapter ring or anything. I just stick the reversed lens to the FM2 and held them together with my left hand, after setting the aperture to f/2. Focusing? I simply moved closer or further. Was quite surprised about what this cheap 50/1.8 can deliver... the sharpness is just wicked, if you don't shake. Not sure about how it affected metering, since I only made a mistake in a single frame (a bit overexposed), metering-wise. Judging from these results, as long as you shot stationary objects, the method proved to be nice.

Yep, that's a shake in the last frame. Though my friend said it made it kinda... artsy. Well, how about making it an artsy wallpaper? Since we're gonna edit it anyway, no one cares if I change the color, rite?

There you go.

Random friends shots.

Yeah I love to cut heads.

Some underground waste pipe construction near sis Iin's home.

And a couple frames from when we were fishing last week. Not exactly exciting, but still better than doing nothing home...

Dunno how in that frame the water got so... blue. It didn't look like that in reality. It's kinda neat.

....No, we didn't fish in that. That would be the ultimate child's play.

Also brought the digital with me. Mostly shot the nice looking clouds for stocks. ;p

There wouldn't be school until February 16th... got to find something to do... hmm.
