life in analogue

It feels like I was thrown back to some 15-20 years ago when the word digital was not known — or if it was, it was only known to may be a handful of people. After being used to using digicam, specifically digi-mobilephone camera, now it has become hip again to use analogue camera.

I still remember my older brother and sister who joined phoography club when they were in high school, using SLR cameras. I also remember the time when I still used analogue camera when other people already used digital camera. An now I regret that I did not keep all my analogue camera carefully.

At that time I never worry that the result of my shots would be good or bad. Now, I do worry if my shots wil be failures. Hahaha..

In social media Instagram, there are a lot of youngsters –the ones in the age of 20s that are now shifting to use analogue camera. I can imagine, when the world was still in analogue mode, they may not have aware of the life yet, they even may not have been born yet. When they grow up and have realized about life, the world is already in digital. While I, like I wrote above, feel like going back to my past life.

So here are some of my shots, taken during my last trip, to Manhattan, New York City, last month. I used Olympus Trip AF30 pocket camera, and Fuji Film Superia 200 (2008 expired). To see more of my analogue photos, go here
