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!

    that sunset shot is money in the bank! lovely stuff

    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

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

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

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

    • http://somethinghere.com 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?

      • http://www.metalwing.com/blog Stephen Holding

        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 !

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      her board only has two wheels!!!!

      • http://somethinghere.com 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

  • http://troisbestioles.blogspot.com/ Susana

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

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      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.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      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!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      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

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

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

      • kicosmaria

Elaborate Salt Labyrinths by Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto

yamamoto7

Japanese Artist Motoi Yamamoto’s incredible, labyrinthine installations are the result of 45 hours of meticulously piled grains of salt, strewn inside a medieval castle in the South of France. I’ve posted about his work several times (here, here, here) but I never grow tired of it.

See more images of “Floating Garden” and “Labyrinth” below or as part of the exhibition Univers’sel at Aigues-Mortes until November 30th.

Google Cultural Institute’s New Art Camera

Google

It took the Google Cultural Institute five years to archive 200 artworks in super high resolution (we’re talking gigapixels). Now they’ve scanned 1,000 in just a few months all thanks to a new camera! The device, dubbed the Art Camera, has cut down capture time from a full day to around 30 minutes. With 20 cameras built, Google has been lending them out to major institutions in cities across the globe free of charge!

It is pretty incredible how far you can zoom into the artworks; have a look here. Watch the video below.
