A few years back, I had a photoshoot and the day before my photoshoot I went to a Photo store to buy my Polaroids for test shots. Unfortunately, the store run out of stock but the clerk told me that he had a box of expired Polaroid Polapan ISO 80 and he would sell it to me for just $8. The polaroids were about 4 years old, unopened and stored properly in the fridge. He told me to try it out and see what happens. I was kinda hesitant but tried it anyway. You will never know what you will going to get from expired Polaroids because the chemicals changes overtime but at the same time it was kinda exciting. The photos below are results. I fell in love with the color. It looks more like the ’60s and looks very vintage. From then on, I was on the hunt for expired Polaroids and the older the better. Little did I know that the expired polaroids is like a commodity. Sometimes it will sell for $40-$50 on eBay and you can’t even find it locally. Luckily this time, found some cheaper polaroids on eBay but the prices are still above $20. So if you know where to get some, send me a note. I will be delightfully grateful.

Many years ago, I fell in love with the art of Photography but it was only a decade ago when I acquired my very own proper equipment. Before I owned my SLR, I was already playing with my very first “Digital Camera.” My first Digital camera was a Ricoh RDC-2 and it was a nice toy. Having that camera at that time was like glimpsing on the near future (fast forward to now). This camera has a removable LCD Screen, built-in flash, ISO 70, 3x 50mm to 150mm zoom with f/2 lens, uses flash memory card, captures still image with sound, records sound only, captures documents and does continuous shooting mode (until the battery runs out and that means after 5 minutes). The sad thing about this camera was it only captures less than a megapixel (410,000 CCD) and at that time it was kinda good enough for me (from a digital camera). I even found a Ricoh printer that was compatible with the camera. The printer didn’t required any ink, just a UV activated paper which kinda acts like a modern polaroid. I still have this camera and it still works.

Wheel from a Rice Mill – 1999 -Tri X Film with Nikon 8008s.
We used to have a working rice mill in the Philippines back in the day. Now, this thing is just sitting eating dust. It no longer works anymore and upkeep of this is so expensive. This mill is huge and loud but it feeds tons of people.
