Shopping Frenzy

Last week there is this huge “discount event” in a department store. Went there to stock up some food and people were just crazy. It is basically the equivalent of Black Friday sales, only it is more than once a year in Hong Kong.

Darkroom Notes – A125 Film Update

In the last darkroom note I stated some developing times for the mysterious A125 black and white film – HC-110B for 10 mins, R09 Rodinal 1+25 for 12 mins.

Well, it turns out it is way too long. I have tried 6 minutes for HC-110B and 7 minutes for Rodinal. Both films turned out fine.

That being said, I think this film can handle long developing time very well, considering I have developed it in HC-110B for 22 minutes, and the film did not look overdeveloped at all.

I would say the midtones and shadows have more detail when developed with HC-110. However with Rodinal, you get this very pleasing look, which I prefer that over HC-110.

For the record, I still don’t know what this A125 film from Russian is, it is claimed to be developed and manufactured in Russia. They also make the Type-D 200 film, which I am going to try.

Another day in Chun Yeung Street market, North Point. The tram rail is under maintenance so no tram is running through then.

Western District Public Cargo Pier / 西區公眾貨物裝卸區

I don’t know why one would name a place after a social media. Who is that stupid person? I want to find them and shoot them in the face… with my camera. It is called “Western District Public Cargo Pier” after all.
