light leak

February 13, 2007 - Beginning of the roll. It happens sometimes that light seeps in and exposes the film at the very beginning.

Xindian, Taiwan, in the neighborhood around the Xindian MRT station, the farthest south station on the MRT system. These two shots are roughly two sides of the same row of buildings. The buildings on the left in the bottom shot are in the same row as the buildings on the left on the top shot. The bottom shot is looking south, the top shot is looking north. Off to the right of the lower shot is the Hsindian River.

The top shot is a quiet residential street. Off to the right in the bottom shot is a public recreation area with booths, food, games, and ample pedal boats, almost boardwalk-y.

i kinda like the exposed part of the picture, it reminds you that you're shooting film. :)

that's my greatest fear about DSLRs, not knowing how to turn it on. And did you know they don't use film?! Astounding!
