My obsession with all things photographic
I am currently in the planning stage for my Spring Festival trip. I don’t have as much time as I would like, so I am trying to find a place to go that doesn’t have me spending 20 hours on a plane. It is tough though because with lay-overs, hitting the 20 hour mark is rather easy. I don’t want to say any of my potential locations yet, because at this early stage, things change.
Tian Du Cheng is a place that I like to visit every time that I am back in Hangzhou. Each time I go, it is a little more run down that the last. It was built just before I moved there in 2007. It was shiny and new. They had hoped that it would be a large tourist attraction and built it as such. Now it is a state of disrepair. The houses are empty, the parks are largely overrun, and people don’t really go.
So my new pentax 67 has a bit of an issue. I took it to my Camera guy at WuKeSong, Hope he can get it all fixed up. I’d like to take it with my on my next trip to Hong Kong.
I am having all sorts of wanderlust recently. Heading to Vietnam for the October holiday exacerbated it. I really want to take another big trip. I will have to settle for my 24 days of annual holidays.
This is the first image from my new Pentax 67. I shot four rolls, three show some problems, but the fourth is perfect. I am thinking that the first three were related to shitty batteries from wukesong. I bought new batteries online and that last roll worked flawlessly. This is going to be a fun camera.
