Not so old story.

Where was I? Central Market. June 16th.
Haha. It's a little too late to post about June 16th now.
It's like a week now from June 16th. Went there with Uzair for the purpose of getting our films done.
There are two stores that can process film inside Central Market and several outside near the area.
Brought both of my cameras along, the MG-1 and the D3100, the latter brought to experiment some stuffs with it which you'll see the results somewhere at the end of this post, if you stayed here long enough.
(Or stayed short enough while scrolling fast enough).

Been there, emptied a roll there, and later got it processed and scanned. Some of the pictures below are shot by me and some by Uzair. Uzair is a devoted film lover, and a lomographer too.

Kasturi Walk. 
It was in the afternoon. Luckily the skies were quite dark back then so it wasn't that hot like it normally would.

The big wau thingy.
A thing I love about the Yashica MG-1 that I have is because of it's fixed focal length,
I can say it's quite sharp if you zoom in to see the details.
But in this case, not here because I already resized the photos.

 Uzair. That's him alright.
Slightly out of focus.

For some reasons, I love to shoot signboards. I don't know why.

The rest are random street shots.
 I love the colours. I don't even need to photoshop.

 Almost looked like they're holding hands.
Or were they? 0.o
Just kidding. Almost.

Reds are dares. City folks are daring. So there's no stopping one from crossing even though it's still red.

This kind of shot, is definitely Uzair's. A shot from the hips.

A line of motorcycles. Do I even need to mention this?
I'm out of words.

 Uzair got me in this one. Lost direction to one of the stores.
Been there once so I kinda forgot where was that one store. Fortunately, found it afterwards.

 And not long after that, I found the source of STDs.

It doesn't say that cars weren't allowed.
Why were there no cars?
Okay. Enough with the stupid question.

Different angle from a different vantage point.
See the sharpness.

This marked the 7th roll of film that I've shot and so far, this is the most successful by having all shots turned out. To be noted that I didn't upload all to this post. Anyways, yeay!

Oh yea, before I forgot, I did bring the Nikon along to experiment some stuffs, here is one.

 Panorama! It has already been resized. Actual size is more than 50 megapixel.
Took 9 shots while panning and later on photomerged it using photoshop.
I should have taken another two or more shots to the right.
Sigh. This is what happens when you don't have a wide enough lens.

PS: I'm broke. So if you see any ads in this blog, and you are interested to click on one, do not hesitate. ; )

Don't kid around, I'm not kidding, he's a kid.

Yea yea. I know, for stating the obvious.
Anyway, I forgot the kid's name.

Shot at a kenduri doa selamat my friend, Hadzim and his family held at their house long ago (not that long actually. A month before I think. Ah. Forget it.). Next to his house was a kindergarten. They borrowed the kindergarten's place for that day and you know, that really helped a lot since most of the kids crowded the playground there instead of the insides of their house. Hadzim even said,
"Nasib baik ada tadika ni. Kalau tak habislah rumah aku. Hancur."

So, what's up with this post? Nothing much. I've been caught up with thinking about posting shots I've taken using my film camera too much that I sometimes forget that I have a Nikon. Sorry to my Nikon that I left you weeping in that bag on that deserted table in my room. So here you go. A photo taken using my grumpy Nikon.

What goes around, sometimes comes dead.

Apparently, there's a cat at my house and it's been already months now. How I found it well, I don't really pick it up. I don't remember exactly when is that day, but there is this one day a few months earlier when I saw this cat in the back alley of my house. It was a skinny cat meow-ing at people's kitchen windows. I got out, fed it and played with a for a while and that's it. Though I love cats, I didn't plan on taking care of this one. But the next day, instead of wandering in the back alley like how it used to before, it was in front of the door when I opened the door to the porch of my house.

This has now been a daily sight.

A cat being cat. This is what I found last night.

Not just last night. Once in a while, it brings home this.

Sometimes, you don't have to look for pets because sometimes, they will just come and look for you.
