crossing the film with the digital
I'm having some kind of disconnect now. I was in Singapore last week and I spent my money buying film. Yes, film. I didn't even get to buy a pair of shoes *gasp!* can that even be true!?? Sad to say, yes.
I also spent my time looking for accessories to Chips' newly bought toy. So many numbers and acronyms... gah. Talking digital shop with people is like being in a P&G meeting. I so wanted to buy him a fisheye lens. Just because it's cool. But I didn't because it's so goddamn expensive.
I didn't bring a digital camera with me for the trip. I didn't think it would add any value. I already had my LC-A. Two metal bodies in a bag would be heavy. And another one thing, you can't cross-process a digital file. Okay fine, you can photoshop it. But where's the suspense if you control everything? I'm in the process of injecting the idea of Lomo-mods into Chips' digital toy. Like a Holga lens. Or a Lensbaby. We're both excited about it, but well... budget barrier. Why do these little things cost so much time and money. Demmit.
There's something hypnotic about crashing colors and vignettes. I'm still under that spell. And my digicam is wondering when the hell I'm gonna get out of it.
For now, I just thank God that I don't have a credit card.

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
