The Open Road; of going places.

Still believing in film…


I must admit that 2013 was a year of few pictures for me. I definitely did not hit the “shutter-fired” quota an avid film shooter should have. I would like to blame work for my lack of photo-capturing, but the truth is I did not push myself hard enough. So really, I am the one at fault. But fret not, 2014 is here and the RESET button has been hit! Camera is loaded and my finger is shutter ready. I will be globe trotting once again this year, visiting many new places I have never been to before, and this time, I will be sure to look through my lens!!

On Tumblr news, we will start to make use of the caption option on Tumblr to tag our photos so all you need to do to find out what film and camera was used to capture the images we feature is to scroll over the image or click to enlarge. The aim we have here at CGSF has been from the very start to share with our readers what to expect when dealing with certain types of films and cameras. Although the film catalogue is getting smaller by the day, we sometimes stumble upon old expired film or happen upon vintage cameras at your local flea market, so hopefully our site is able to aid as a source of answers to your questions.

2014 is still very new and there are many days to come with many opportunities and possibilities just waiting to be plucked. I wish you all the best and may this year be a year full of wonderful and enlightening things to come.

The Vivitar UWS strikes again: SLUTWALK Singapore!

Agfa CT Precisa on Vivitar UWS

In the near future if ever again I’m to view a developed Agfa Precisa on my UWS, I should put my sunglasses on.

To get that turquoise-greenish hue was my initial plan, but I have to admit it’s too blinding especially when there are no objects before the sky. I envy that royale blue tone of an xpro CT Precisa on a Lomo LC-A. Definitely gonna land my hands on that baby someday soon!
