Earlier this year I received my first film camera, a Leitz Minolta CL with a 40mm Rokkor lens. I've officially fallen in love with film, especially the extremely tangible aspect of it. I've been exploring different types of film and am loving what the Ilford Delta 100 has to offer! Check out the shots below.
As I ventured through Chinatown to go to Joe Shanghai's for soup dumplings, I heard the beating of drums and loud crashes of cymbals. As I turned the corner, there was an exciting Chinese New Year parade that filled the streets. Confetti blasting in the air, loud music and dragons blessing each business one by one, I had to capture the moment.
Warmer weather is upon us which means shorts, flip flops and street photography. This weekend was beautiful and had perfect lighting conditions for black and white photography as it was overcast. Naturally, I picked up my camera, charged my batteries and went out for an adventure.
This year was the first year I've celebrated Chinese New Year. The week was filled with red envelopes full of money, bags of oranges, fantastic food with family and many parades. The streets were filled with confetti, lion costumes blessed business for good fortune and happy children laughed as they enjoyed the celebration with loved ones. Naturally I ran around Chinatown in NYC with my camera and captures some wonderful moments. Afterwards we went to the Chinese Market to get some food and that's when I saw a tank full of frogs. Wild!
