This is the continuation of my first blog: :http://www.lomography.com/homes/tempericarus/blog/19-first-night . And this is how it goes...
My second night of shooting started in the Macau Fisherman’s wharf. Me and my wife went here during day time but I guess it’s better to go during night time because…
It’s more romantic… It’s overlooking the Macau Bridge and at night you can fee the cold breeze coming from the sea. Too bad my shot is kinda blurry because I don’t have a tripod…
They already decorated it for the upcoming Halloween. And It’s very cool.
The whole place have different themes, they have Chinese dynasty, Rome, Babylon, Amsterdam and etc. They have some shops and restaurants of all kind of cuisine.
Walking the street I saw a mirror so I took a shot at myself wearing the Lomoboy T-shirt which I bought at Lomography Store in Hong Kong.
Just across that is an apparel store, so I went inside to check it out. I was amazed with this statue near the entrance. So I took a picture of it.
They were two hotels inside, One is Babylon Casino Hotel and the Rocks Hotel. If I were to choose which one, I will choose the Rocks Hotel because it’s near the sea and the view is awesome.
It was the end of the Macau Fisherman’s Wharf, so decided to walk around. Just in front of the wharf is Sands Casino. When I was about to cross the street, I decided to take a long exposure shot, hoping my hands won’t shake… But Unluckily it did… =(
While walking I passed by the Macau Cultural Centre, inside they have a large theatre which showcase some musical plays and some concerts… On my way I saw a guy busy texting so it gave me an opportunity to take a picture of him in “Lowdown” style.
After that I walked my way to a park, and gave me the chance to take a shot.
Then I went inside Wynn Hotel and they have this beautiful swimming pool but I cannot get close to it because it’s only for in-house guest so I took a shot thru a see-through mirror, which created a double exposure effect.
Wynn Hotel provide a fountain show that they called performance lake. It’s one of their Las Vegas Like Attraction… But across the hotel is the Lisboa Hotel, one of the first hotel in Macau. They said that it’s a shape of a Bird Cage and the reason behind it they don’t want their guest to leave…
Nearby the hotel is a romantic spot were you can see the macau tower and the public bridge(because only taxis and buses are allowed to pass).
After that I went to take the underpass and took this shot resting my camera on top of an handrails.
And that was the last shot I took out from my LCA+ which is loaded with Sensia 100 film.
The next day I had my film processed in my favorite photolab, I was so excited to see my pictures. When I came back and got my CD and negatives, the Attendant said to me “good shots” with matching thumbs up. That was the first time he said something about my pictures. And when I saw the pictures I was amazed also however I wished I had a tripod for some long exposure shots. But today I manage to buy myself one and now I am excited to take some shots using my new tripod…
