Buy the The Classic Leather Camera Satchel at the Photojojo Store!

I’ve been looking for a camera bag that, aherm, “defines” me. This one comes close.


I received a great gift from my wife today: a brand new iPad Camera Connection Kit.  I’ve wanted one for some time now, so I was geeking out when we went to the Apple store this afternoon. Now you may find me with a film camera more often but I do still shoot digital photos and videos. This will be good for when I’m traveling and I need quick storage. Here’s a quick look at what’s inside the box. (more…)

I’m a big fan of street art and graffiti so long as it’s well executed, not some haphazard squiggles bukkake’d out of a spray can just for the sake of tagging something. Whenever I have the opportunity I go out and take photos of these urban art pieces. Last year I managed to take a photo of a Banksy in San Francisco and also a Yoshitomo Nara in a pub wall in New York.

A few days ago I was driving around BF Homes, a suburban enclave in Paranaque City, and I came across this nicely painted wall. The colors just pop out and the stylized cat (I’m assuming it is a cat) was pretty cool. It looks like a commissioned job, though, not a guerrilla piece. Still, props to the group that painted it.

These were taken with a Rollei 35S with Super 200 film. FINALLY, sample shots from the Rollei!

PS: If anyone knows who did this, let me know or point ’em to this entry.

Just realized I missed a shot.

Here’s how the Colorsplash Flash Chakras Edition looks paired with an Olympus 35UC and a Rollei 35S.

After seven years of faithful service, I am retiring my original LSI Colorsplash Flash.  Sure, it still fires, but the capacitor is wonky, the battery lid doesn’t attach properly, and the power switch is temperamental.  It never works when I need it to, but fires when it feels like it. Time for a replacement. (more…)
