I’ve been shooting quite a bit of film over the past year and have rolls just scattered around the house probably never to be developed until I get rich or buy a negative scanner (like my boy Chris Bradley be having doe!). I got 2 rolls developed last week and one is from a CONS tour in November of 2011, while the other is to test out the Zenit E.
Don’t really see many people using half-frame cameras too often so I was hyped when I found one at my parents’ home! Basically, half-frame cameras take 2 photos for every exposure, dividing it in the middle with a thick bold line. So if you have a roll of 36, you can shoot 72 photos with that 1 roll. Pretty neat, even though some of the shots get cut off for some reason. I shot about a dozen rolls of film on it without getting a single one developed so thankfully the camera still works and I didn’t waste it all!
Peacock must have shot these 2 photos. The top one is when I woke up after a sleeping on the concrete in some dudes’ backyard in Shenzhen. There’s a beach about 50 feet away from the house and I have no idea why we didn’t set up camp on the sand. The second photo is of KengQu; starting his day.
Next to the beach is a really steep climb to the top of a mountain that overlooks the small town. At some parts it’s pretty sketchy but you can hike for hours on these small trails and see big rock caves and there’s even a section where the trees form a natural fort. You can see the secluded beach in the background of Peacock… good luck finding this place!
