I mentioned earlier that on a recent trip to Hong Kong I shot some black and white film through a Contax T3 which got a bit of linear pre-processing (rather than post). I discovered that this was thanks to my inability to correctly close the goddamn battery compartment lid that is in the data back. (This has since been fixed and the camera is fine.)
Self imposed unfamiliarity was the only real goal I had photographically- color film, a quirky and somewhat difficult to use camera, a lively city I wasn’t able to “read”, etc. The color film I shot was the cheapest Kodak I could find at Yodobashi Camera. The pictures that follow were a few I found interesting on their own terms as experiments.
This last photo- – I felt like I caught a glimpse of ERIC’s China in real time, in real life. Admittedly he would have made a better photo of the encounter. The extent that I became smitten with Hong Kong was something I didn’t expect, and I plan on going back soon, with my regular gear.
