Wan Chai Development, Kodak Portra 400

Another walk from Matty’s house to TST and another shot of the development at the harbour front in Wan Chai – also known as Wan Chai Development Phase II.

Despite having taken a few pitchas of this area I’m not particularly interested in building developments in Hong Kong. We have to walk through this area if we walk from our place to get the ferry to TST so I just snap pitchas as we walk through. I find architecture in Hong Kong uninspiring at best. The rents and lack of affordable housing and the fact the government seems uninterested in constructing anything that would
be in the interest of the general public is enough to make anyone feel glum about this kind of thing.

The third pitcha is of a community art installation near the Museum of Art which was quite nice.

Southsea, Konica Industrial 100 [expired]

One of our last days in England and some lovely weather for a drive to Southsea. We had lunch at The Tenth Hole, a little cafe next to the golf course and then walked along the Millennium Path from Southsea through Old Portsmouth to Gunwharf Quays. Great Stuff.

This is a roll of Konica film that is packaged in a similar way to the still-in-production Fuji Industrial. There are 3 characters on the box that Chu Chu assured me mean “industrial” and they are the same 3 characters on the fuji boxes so I can only assume that Konica used to make a similar film for industry – I think the films were used in dentistry and surveillance equipment, that sort of thing.

Anyway, it expired years ago and as you can see the colours have gone a bit potty. The blue layer especially…

Supermarket Bokeh, Fuji Industrial 400

Supermark/eh! in Wellcome.

“Wellcome” is a supermarket in Hong Kong that wants to be like Tesco. It fails at that quite miserably. It also smells funny, and by funny I mean unpleasant.
