Some color film scans. Superia X-tra 400. FM2n + 50/1.8.

Starting in school. Any of you ever using one of these...

knows that it's really a bitch to operate. We were doing school assignment, the use of filters in BW. Couldn't find any 120 BW film anymore in town though, so we ended up using 135 film instead. So what's the big ass view camera for? For the color comparison (120 color films are still available). Or perhaps so that we could look cooler or something, I dunno.

What's he photographing anyway?


Don't ask.

Btw, the macro on the last photo was achieved by putting a Rodenstock loupe in front of my lens. Too bad I couldn't bring it outside the studio, would be cool to use it on... uh, random useless stuff. Killer vignette!

Smoking is hazardous. Or so they say.

Moving on to architecture campus. Annual sport gala. Nice. Tug o' war to open it. Really nice.

Waiting for our game to start. That's Made, from Bali. What an appropriate shirt to wear, De. He's one of our power generators.

A game for other teams. They (the team seen here) won the game. Unfortunately they met us in the next round so they got defeated in turn. Sorry boys, as long as it only requires raw strength, our team is pretty much invincible. ;)

Spectators. Too shallow a DOF here.

Minos really knew how to enjoy himself.

Some of our team. Probably the last gala for them, since this should be their last year.

After game. Minos enjoyed a massage from Taufik.

Another roll of Superia 400. But this time using Mita's dad's 50/1.4. Yup, it's repaired. Trying to find a buyer now. Before it got sold of course I had to make the most of it. ;)

Gem, as usual throwing funny stories during his meal making him the last person to finish eating. Some mad f/1.4 bokeh there. This lens is sweeeet.

Gone out for a walk in a morning. Found some interesting things. The beauty of street photography of course, you never know what you might encounter along the way.

Like this:

It's parked in front of an unused building. Thought the owner was still sleeping somewhere, but couldn't find him anywhere. Seriously, I want to see the kind of person who rides this... thing.

Man, I swear there was some pretty yellowish glows on these flowers. Should have overexposed this one more.

Went eating with friends.

By the way, there were already these 2 couples eating there when we got there. Like, enjoying some quality time or something. And we got 9 people or so. We sat across this long table in a rather small fried rice stall. While waiting for the food to come, of course we had to start talking and laughing... loudly around the couples, like there's nobody else there. With subjects that... let's just say inappropriate to talk in front of eating people. ;) Needless to say, the couples quickly finished their dish and got out. There's even this one young lady who didn't finish her meal. Losing appetite, perhaps. We're evil like that. ;)

Aah yes, nothing like a hot fried rice in a cold rainy night. Again with the wide open goodness.

Overexposed, handshake... totally screwed this one. Too bad, think this one would have been sweet had it been done properly.

Aaand... some feet to end yet another weird entry. Hope this finds you all well.

A little photo series I made during a blackout a couple of days ago. Partly inspired by one of the pillows' song, Subhuman (lyric).

Also a random set of photos... from here and there, taken across this week. Not in chronological order.

From Phuket, a Thailand food stall near Lempuyangan flyover. Not really a fan of Thailand food, just went there to accompany a friend who made an article for campus magz. The service was good though, the owners are *very* friendly. They know how to make customers feel at home. And the fairly moderate prices are always good to have.

A quick portrait I made of them. Man, I really need to improve my talking skills, they look kinda tense here.

A boyscout I saw in Boko temple. Taken on the morning before I went to the funeral in the previous entry. The only BW photo in this entry, kinda weird to have this here but I did intend to make it BW.

Little car, little palms.

Some dumb looking doves. They were busy with each other but as soon as I put the camera to my eye they just stopped. And what's with that one leg stand anyway? What the hell, stupid birds.

School friends, we were out to do an assignment:

And heck, macros to end this.

What a weird entry this is. You can all blame Basuki, he's the one forcing me to post something here. Go post something yourself Bas, hahah. ;p
