1st December

Wow... november is already gone. i must say it was month of black and white colours. i shot total three rolls of b/w film. spent lot of time in darkroom developing and printing. sadly my class will be over tomorrow and i won't be able to use the darkroom any more. i can still use in the future but have to pay hourly rent. 

and we have reached in the last month of the year. how fast the times flies. this December i will complete two years in Singapore. after two years finally i feel that i am settling down in this little foreign country...

Have a Happy December

darkroom prints

my first ever...

i am so excited, i printed these two in the darkroom. first one my teacher help me with and second one i did all  by myself. so you will see it is completely out of focus. i forgot to adjust the focus. i will print some more today evening and may tomorrow as well. my scanner was meant for paper and not for photos so quality of scanning is just too bad. 

i would love to hear from you. any tips-advice-suggestions-experiences on darkroom printing are welcome...

Bali {ii} - rice terrace

Last entire week went super busy. Yesterday i printed few more photo in the darkroom; planning to use it again on Wednesday. (i will show my photos as soon as i get it scanned.)

in my last post i promised rice terrace photos; here are those. we reach rice terrace in the evening after some shopping at Ubud market. timing was perfect. golden light filled the rice paddies. we found lovely canopy to sit. we sat there until sun set, watching the light fade away from paddies.

PS - please have a look at facebook page of my dear friend Polly & Jacopo - LINTUSTUDIO

Bali {i}

trip to Bali was short but very refreshing. first day went in traveling and long and tiring immigration process. after reaching hotel i was completely exhausted to go anywhere. luckily beach was right in front of our hotel. we spent evening watching sunset and collecting little sea shells.
next day we hired bike and went to Goa Gajah temple. weather was terribly hot. after visiting temple we went to ubud market for some shopping. market was filled with little locally handmade things. after the market visit we headed to rice terrace.
rice terrace is beautiful place and need it's own blog post. i will post more photos of it soon. stay tuned.

1st November

colors of october were colors of autumn - red, yellow, brown. i didn't get to see them in real but Polly and Evelyn's autumn photos made me really happy.
overall october was the happiest month. almost all weekends i spent outdoor; visiting botanical garden, bukit batok national park and short trip to Bali. spotted new birds, tried double exposure for the first time - i am yet to see the results though. and i also joined short course for black and white photography. for the first time i will develop and print my own photos. can't wait.  
have a happy november...

pulau ubin

on an incredibly hot day i went to pulau ubin. it is a beautiful small island short boat ride from singapore. even though it is a part of singapore it is far different from the city. while i was exploring around it suddenly started raining but after the rain place became more beautiful and fresh.
i wish to go there again but on a little overcast day.
