Beautiful afternoon

Copying as usual, Hong Kong, March 2018

要花很長時間,要很有耐性。而我最近都沒有心機畫。
It takes a long time. It requires a lot of patience. Recently I don't feel like doing it.

我不知道自己可以到那裏去呢。

"Your slide is blank"

Expired Kodak E100VS, Hong Kong, March 2018

有位朋友送了筒過期停產菲林。很珍惜地用,但遺憾地最後是白片,原因暫時仍未找出。幸好上片時影了幾張相來留俏影,總算有點存在的價值。
An expired discontinued slide film given by a friend. Sadly it turned out as a blank film. Reason as yet found. Luckily I made a few photos when loading film, giving it a value.
又黃又藍地美麗。
Yellow and blue. Beautiful.

Before the end of the world

Prince Edward, Hong Kong, December 2017

模模糊糊地記得。
Vaguely remember.

過期超過十年的菲林,出來的效果挺嚇人,幸好當中這幾張我挺喜歡的。但我都再找多一筒來挑戰過。
A film that has expired more than ten years. It turned out quite shocking to me but luckily there are a few photos I like. But I still find one more roll to try again.

Another year is passing

Koey in wetland park, Hong Kong, February 2018

第一張相有一間間的不知明東西,沖印店老闆都不明解。

如題,你焦慮嗎?
As titled, are you anxious?

Behind the camera

Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, January 2018

我總是拿着相機,在鏡頭後。
I always the one holding the camera, behind the lens.
Look left.

Lost in this city

Around Kowloon, Hong Kong, from May to October 2017

我還在寫網綕呢。
I am still blogging.

我不知道自己還可以做什麼呢。

The wood cotton tree

Kapok, Hong Kong, March 2018 

木綿樹又叫英雄樹。

聽說木綿花和葉並存不是一個好現象。木綿樹一直都是先落葉,後開花,但近年都是葉還未落,花已經開。香港的冬天不再冷了。溫暖天氣令葉不在秋天變黃,冬天落葉。

Kapok is also named as "Hero tree" in Chinese.

I heard that coexistence of kapok flowers and leaves is not a good phenomenon. Kapok trees always have the leaves fallen first, then the flowers bloomed. But in recent years, flowers have already bloomed before the leaves fall. Hongkong's winter is no longer cold. The warm weather makes the leaves not turning yellow in autumn and falling in winter.
香港不小地方都有木綿樹。/ Kapok trees are in many places around Hongkong. 葉和花在一起的混亂。/ The mess of coexistence of the flowers and leaves.  哈嚕。/ Hello. 三月頭影的花蕾。/ Kapok flower buds taken in the beginning of March.

聽說Hillvale Sunny 16 400有「過期菲林的效果」,於是我過了一級來影。
I heard that Hillvale Sunny 16 400 has "the effect of an expired film" so I use at +1 exposure.
