Back to basics…
I haven’t shot with 35mm for a long, long while now but in October last year I purchased an Olympus OM4 w/ 50mm f1.4 lens (originally manufactured between the early and mid 80’s). I used to own a cheaper model of this camera back in the day and always loved how small, simple and solid Olympus made their SLRs. I also believe that in the right light the old Zuiko lenses are some of the most underrated in existence - hence their relatively cheap price. Any who, I just got my first 2 rolls developed with the results below. One thing that will always draw me back to film again and again is how timeless the process is. There is no rush for me to finish all 36 exposures and get to the lab. When I’m in the mood I just pick the camera up and see what catches my eye. A roll can last a week, a month, 3 months, etc, etc… The photos in this album span from Thailand in Novemeber ‘13 to the weekend just gone. Recently I’ve felt slightly removed from what first drew me to photography but shooting with 35mm again brings it all back. High-res

A night in Bangkok, Thailand, November 2013.

A couple of shots of Stacey during our final night in Bangkok. I also really liked these fish…

The Streets of Bangkok, Thailand, November 2013.

Just a few photos of the time we spent wondering around the streets of Bangkok.

Lumphini Park Lake, Bangkok, Thailand, November 2013.

A few shots taken around one of the bigger lakes in Lumphini Park. It was insanely hot and sweaty so chilling by the water for a while was a really nice break. 

Lumphini Park, Bangkok, Thailand, November 2013.

We have been to Bangkok a couple of times but it has never felt like we’ve explored the city so on one blisteringly hot day we wondered off and stumbled across Lumphini Park. It is a beautiful and chilled out place in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. There were also a lot of monitor lizards running around which was weird…

Improvise, Koh Phayam, Thailand, November 2013.
On a walk around the pier we happened across this beauty in the middle of nowhere. An old school tv sat on a couple of speakers. Judging by the amount of sand I’m guessing it didn’t work and there was definitely no power near by. So what was it doing there? High-res
