Beach bum

October 23, 2011

You can also escape from central Hong-Kong madness by going to the other side of the island. Hit Shek’O beach or Big Wave bay. Don’t bring your surfboard though, for this is just a marketing name. The bus road is very cool, snaking trough the hills, up and down to the beach.

I used an ISO 64 (tungsten white balance) expired film. Expired films can give surprising results and a slight pink tint. But combined with the ISO 64, usually enhancing blue tones, the pics got a full pink tint. There’s a french song saying “Je vois la vie en rose”.

Back to colour, back to Kuta. Meet mister & miss icecream. ‘Miss icecream’ is a triple exposure. Multi-exposure rocks. Not everybody likes it though. Twisted minds do love it.

The pics in this post were shot in the Holga’s 4.5×6 rectangular format. However, the last one comes from another film, hence the 6×6 regular square format.

Still on the same journey, accross Lantau with my Holga.  This time I loaded an ISO 100 Provia film. According to your film, if you under or over expose it you can achieve different color tones.

Bluescale yes, but … in greens!
