A Chinese Thanksgiving – Singapore

Facebook-6

There was a Chinese Thanksgiving in front of Ngee Ann City on Orchard road in Singapore. That was a good occasion for the test roll of the The Leica IIIc which is back from the shop with a new curtain.

A Chinese Thanksgiving - Singapore

These are small sculptures on a boat, I am not too sure (how Singaporean) of the meaning.

Old people folding joss paper to be burned later in offering to the ancestors. I asked once about the significance of the folding and was told it is to make it easier to burn. But there may be another meaning.

A roll with the Nikon F – part 1 : There is always something going on on Orchard Road

Nikon F – FTn finder – Nikkor-S Auto 50mm f:1/4

Time to pull another friend from the dry box ! At least once a year let’s get together and have a walk around town. The Ftn finder uses the same batteries as the Minolta Hi-Matic so there was no problem to get started, just loading a fresh (and cold from the fridge) roll of Ilford Delta 400 and off we go. When I say off we go its a kind of shortcut, because it took me more than two weeks to complete the 36 exposures, but you know what I mean.  Oh, and I have chosen the original 50mm 1.4 Auto-s; last year I was very pleased with the pictures I did with the more recent 50mm 1.4 AIS, so let’s try to see if there is an objective difference or if it was just chance.

Here are 3 shots make on Orchard Road, in rather dim light, so wider aperture (probably around 2.8) and slow speed (30 to 60).

Nobody was dancing in the street at the sound of the band that Sunday, but that’s a common sight. Too bad!

In term of dancing I was luckier withe the Line Dancing Fiesta and the two shots below.
