Popular photo spot vs a roll of expired T-MAX 100

I recently got a roll of Kodak T-MAX 100 expired in 2009, it has been lying in my refrigerator for a while. A couple of weeks ago I went to PMQ and saw a photo exhibition of Nicole Tung, featuring works involving Syria children in turmoil.

Before that I had some time to walk around Central and inevitably came across a famous instagram spot on Peel Street… there I was shooting away.

All photos shot with Mamiya M645 1000s, Mamiya-Sekor C 80mm f/2.8 on Kodak T-MAX 100 (exp. 2009), developed in HC-110B.

Obsessed with a street scene

Have you ever have a feeling that whenever you walk on the street, you always wonder how a particular spot looks like at this particular time? I don’t think everyone would do that, but apparently I am obsessed with Graham Street in Central, Hong Kong.

Whenever I am nearby, I would always end up there and take some shots. While I am not particularly nostalgic for this place, I know at the bottom of my heart that I will miss this place – it is almost certain the area is going to be demolished and rebuilt.

The Bamboo Love

The other day I was walking around Central during lunch time. I saw 3 “masters” are loading bamboo sticks on their truck.

In Hong Kong, you can see bamboo scaffoldings virtually in every construction site. It is one of the most iconic temporary structure you can see here.

Still, the business is shrinking because stainless steel scaffolding are becoming more preferred. People say it is dangerous to build and work around bamboo scaffolding, but the truth is we hardly hear any injuries in the news.

I wish to document whenever I see bamboo scaffolding. God knows 10 years later they could be replaced completely.
