Hong Kong + Japan

I just developed seven rolls of film from my trip! I’m updating my Flickr with some images but I thought I’d also share a few here!

  • there’s actually a couple photos in here from Macau as well!

  • that sunset shot is money in the bank! lovely stuff

  • Am

    WOW!!!!! They are excellent!!! I absolutely love the processing. My favourite has to be foto #2 of course, but as I say, they’re all good. The graininess in some of them actually adds to the charm. I’ve seen a million (or more) sunsets, and the one here still strikes a chord in me. Wonderful framing and composition. HK is very very much like Singapore… except we don’t have that many people… yet. =P

  • walter

    you really do have an eye for capturing moments, the cat photo is breath-taking.

  • daniela c.

    The floor crack looks like a skate cable… Love the aqua blue building 🙂

    The guy with the black cap is super cute. Where can I find him?

    • that’s Jasper, he runs the gallery where we had the small victories show!

  • These are great! What sort of camera do you use? Vintage? LC-A?

    • contax t3 and a yashica t4

  • I can smell that Durian from here! Great pics Jeff.

    • Am

      That’s not a durian; it’s a jackfruit. 😉
      The jackfruit is also the biggest fruit in the world.

    • stephen man, long time brotha!!! how you been?

      • Good man, still in NY holding it down. Great work on the site, I check it every day. Keep it up!

  • チボ

    Very nice pics ! The one with the little girl on the skate is definitely my favourite !
    The photo is just perfect if you look at the colours and the alignment of the different elements in the pictures, esp. the line drawn by a crack on the pavement and the skate. I love it !

    • her board only has two wheels!!!!

      • Am

        These 2-wheeled skateboards seem to be the trend these days. I can’t even balance on a 4-wheel one let alone a 2-wheel one, lol. I’ve no idea how those kids do it. =P

  • not only they are wonderful photographs, they also are inspiring (regarding photography and travelling) and thanks for scanning so much for us lately!

    • haha these ones the lab scanned but yea the ones for the show took awhile!

  • Franz

    Jeff – pls tell me he likes boys. 🙂
    I googled him and he is so cute.

    • i’m pretty sure he is straight but ill let him know you are interested in case 🙂

  • santino

    Amazing shots Jeff! I want to try my hand at shooting film but I’m not sure where to start… what kind of camera were you using?

    I also wanted to say thanks for all the hard work you put into this site. You’re an inspiration to me and many others I’m sure. I hope I’ll be ready for Emily Carr after I finish one year of Foundations in Design at Kwantlen in Richmond. The sky’s the limit I guess. Keep it up man. We appreciate it.

    Peace!

    • cool santino thanks for the kind words – i did a similar thing and transferred to emily carr from langara – best of luck with that

      i shot these with two point and shoot cameras, a yashica t4 and a contax t3, i also have a konica bigmini, a ricoh gr10 and now a nikon 35ti

    • there is no trick to it, you just gotta get out there and shoot

  • wow, these are really nice.

  • 1993Lee

    中国好玩吗?我很喜欢那个旋转楼梯和那只小猫。

  • kicosmaria

    Cool. But which foto´s from Macau? I live here, I don´t recognize my land.

    • the photo of the “Crypt” and the photo of the spiral staircase (inside my friend’s grandma’s house) and the photo of the cross (last photo)

      • kicosmaria

        Oh right!!! At the saint pauls ruins! Of course! Cool dude! Thanks!

      • yep that’s the place!

        cheers

  • dogbunny

    Pretty funny,

    That first picture at Heng Fa Chen station in HK is 5 minutes from my apartment. 🙂

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
