I recently found a plastic toy camera. The camera is of unknown make and model but was a part of some sort of promotional giveaway from yesteryear. I loaded it with a roll of Fujicolor Superia 200 [as various speeds of Superia are the only film available in the greater Jhongsing Village-area] and walked around town with it during a few lunch breaks over the past couple of months. Here are a handful of those shots.
During the long weekend I downloaded and experimented with a trial version of Exposure 4 by Alien Skin. Exposure 4 is a plug-in for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. The program is an easy to use film simulator filled to the brim with presets mimicking discontinued films, dark room tricks, and lo-fi camera idiosyncrasies.
Taiwan’s Aviation Museum [航空科學館] is located at Taoyuan International Airport between the main freeway entrance and the airport terminals. It is a worthwhile visit because it’s a lot more interesting than trying to kill time in the airport. The museum is divided into five areas: Civil Aviation, Flying Technology, the ROC Air-Force, Aviation History, and the Space Tunnel Zone. Since it isn’t a large museum, exploring its educational exhibitions won’t require more than two hours. I spent a little more than an hour there while waiting to pick up my family from the airport.
Here’s a collection of photographs from my visit:
