Autumn Leaves All Around Nottingham

6

Autumn and analogue never felt so cool before!

I recently got back to Nottingham, UK to continue my final year studies. Having started shooting Lomographs back in Malaysia, this is the first time I shoot with film here. It was of course exciting, as one of my colleagues told me that the light ambient in UK is a bit different from the harsh sun of Malaysia, and can produce different results.

The place I’m staying is 20 minutes walk from my university, but along the way I will pass by a big park — and what else is better to shoot than falling autumn leaves! They come in amazing varieties of shapes and patterns, and because their color changes differently according to species, there is this amusing blend from green to orange to red colors. There are plenty of squirrels too, but it’s really hard to go near them.

The funny thing is UK reported a heatwave during the first few days I got back, hence although the leaves are starting to turn yellow and are slowly falling down, the temperature still feels very warm. At one stage it was 27 degrees; walking under the sun feels like I’m back in Kuala Lumpur but without the humidity. Even the ice-cream truck got a few days of extra business!

Right now the weather is cold again and I can only look back at the photos to remember the days I walk the streets in UK in just T-shirt and jeans. Some of the shots here are taken during a short weekend trip to London as well.

    LomoLocations: Beijing, China

    Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.

    Experiment: Chlorine!

    What's so great about analog photography? You never know what you will get in the end. Not every film let all of my photos look perfect, some fail, too. Maybe some of you experienced the same. After trying out several film soups and chemicals I finally discovered the easiest and quickest way: chlorine!
