Return of the sprocket rocket loaded with some bright Fuji Superia film. It was Halloween in Guayaquil, Ecuador so what else to do? Go online, find a party on couchsurfing, throw on some freshly purchased wigs, bring along local rum and party on.
We managed to visit the animal market of Otavalo twice. I liked it. The chaos, the animals, the sounds, smells and crazy volcanoes in the background. I was never sure if the animals were bought for food, pets or calculating abilities. Highly recommended for those who find themselves in Otavalo. Note the market is only on Saturdays and starts early and ends by noon. So get there on time and bargain hard if you are in the market for some cows.
The following are random shots in Otavalo and Cuenca. Just imagine any interesting yet funny anecdote to go along with the photos. The last three taken with some Kodak Gold film.
I got my Nishika out for another adventure this time in the city that never sleeps and is therefore a bit cranky. The only city as far as I know that refers to itself as a fruit. NYC !
Taken with Fuji Superia 200 and my 4-lens Nishika plastic camera.

And the following were taken on the Tropical island of Aruba.
A few weeks ago on Vesak Day I went out with my Nishika camera and took more shots and tried some jumping pictures this time. They came out quite well. Everything was taken outside as this camera needs quite a bit of light. My friends tried a variety of poses including, the star jump, the walking man, the leveation and the “checking my iphone” float. We also came across a pretty large dinosaur in the middle of some apartment buildings.
Fuji Superia 200 is my number one choice when shooting for sprockets. I love the colorful lines along the sprocket that only Superia brings. The great thing is that film is very common. I know I can go to places where film isn’t common anymore and still pick up some rolls of Superia. These were shot with my Canon SLR and 50mm lens.
These was an abanded playground I found in the west of Singapore now almost taken over by the jungle.
Showing a slide of life of Singapore many years ago. In the background is Malaysia.
