Melbourne is comparatively much hotter than Sydney. Sydney is a much more touristy place i feel, giving the illusion of a very well-off, grand, city. I feel that Melbourne is much more laid back, more liberal i suppose because of the many surprises you can find lurking around the place. For instance there was this enlightening lamppost i found while strolling past the lake that i didn’t take a photo of.

and the alley beside where i was staying – it’s a museum itself

google ‘graffiti in singapore’. all you get are articles about the Swiss vandal and how he was punished

google ‘graffiti in melbourne’. you get this

Melbourne graffiti considered for heritage protection

The citizens also made a big fuss when council workers cleaned off a work by Banksy in Hosier Lane.

I don’t know where I heard it from, this term ‘pika pika’ and I doubt that is the correct term for this ligtht doodle thing. There should be a more professional term yes? If not people who talk about it will sound like they are imitating Pikachu.So the story is:  I had some free time one fine evening and the torchlight was staring at me, so I picked it up and waved it around. That’s what you get for staring at me!

While walking back from shooting a scene at the swings, we found out that I was carrying a camera with me! The following ensued…

Last two pics taken by the Miong.

I like the first and forth photo the best, because they are the most simplistic and pleasant.

I remember how I gave my presentation:

Once there lived a girl who was very lonely.

Everyday, she had no one to play with by herself. So to make herself feel better, she would

take long walks around the school, trying to find someone to talk to.

One day, she walked a corner she had never been to before and found a portal

which led into another world.

There, she found an imaginary friend

who was always there to play with her and she became very happy.

The end.

It was great fun to play with the pinhole cans, because there is this anticipation whenever you sit still, counting down the time, then bring your can to this pitch black room, and you can see how your photo turns out. If the photo didn’t turn out well, your heart will fall 5 storeys down but if it turns out great then the joy is also equal to that. I also like the fact that you can experiment with how dark or bright or if you want to double expose it or maybe you want to create some patterns on the photo, without using photoshop. Pinhole photos give this ghostly and melancholic feel so I like that too. I think I could also have done more experimentation, and I would like to try some now too, like maybe folding the paper before you put it in, or placing some translucent paper over the photo paper. I also heard of this man who developed his photos using urine, and it should be fun to try adding different stuff into the chemicals as well.

I also took some digital photos, and I remember thinking that the blue tone was very sweet and fitting

I learnt that I SHOULD NOT TOY WITH THE LIGHTING OPTIONS ON THE CAMERA AND JUST LEAVE THE JOB TO POST EDITING IN PHOTOSHOP. It’s hard to make any changes, after I have taken my photo in this blue tone, so i can only adjust the contrast and brightness. (which sort of is the case of pinhole photos as well) But anyway, now I still think that the blueish tone adds a sense of playfulness to the photos, so I’m not that remorseful about what I did.

I would also like to take this chance to thank Lisa. Thanks for being my model, ya? Since Sec 3, and now Sec 4 still. I might need to extend our contract to JC1… .

These are photos taken during infocomm club, we were just told to go around the school and take photos.

It’s friday afternoon, so the school really was not quite full; the only people left were those in unformed groups and clubs
