Rano Raraku – Moai quarry
We had the chance to pay a second visit to the quarry where the Moais were carved on a sunny afternoon. The statues were there waiting for us.
The guy above was called “The tattooed Moai” by our guide. He wears a carving of what looks like the westerner boats that came to the island in the 17th century. Was it carved by locals or by un-respectful traveler, that’s another mystery.
Apart from its iconic statues Rano Raraku also offers a fantastic scenery with a view on the ocean and further left the platform with the 11 Moais.
Also the site is beautiful view from a distance.

Most of thee shots make use of circular polarizer, I hope the effect is not too heavy.

Nice photos! May I ask where do you develop and scan them and at what price?
Hi I have Ruby photo in Excelsior Plazza develop my film and I scan them at home using an Epson v500 flat bed scanner. 8$ for Black and White, 6$ for color.
You have more options in Singapore for your film: Triple D minilab on Bencolen Street close to burlington square has good feedbacks, Chiff camera in Excelsior shopiing center also does a more bespoke process and scan service for 35mm film only.
