Car Make Across & JJ Cup Rd. 5 At Central Circuit Japan 2022…

I typically go into most of my Japan trips without a schedule. It just works out easier that way. Things never go as planned so I’d rather just wing it most of the time and see what happens. Of course, there are specific things that I do want to do and see so I will make time for them. But, I was going to be there for an entire month and there was really no point in planning every single day out. The way Yasu works, my schedule was gonna get screwed-up anyway because he operates a lot like me. We would wake-up, get coffee and then decide what to do. These photos from the JJ Cup circuit event came to fruition randomly out of the blue. Neither I or Yasu knew that there was a track event that week. We were visiting a shop nearby and had some extra time to kill after, so Yasu asked if I wanted to make a stop at ACROSS to say hi to Joe. Typically I don’t think he is there during the day time but Yasu called and he just so happened to be there…

Finally can start doing these monthly film dumps again now that I have a capable camera body to shoot with. I’ve been shooting with this expired Fuji Acros 100II black and white film for a few months now but just was never able to produce any good photos with it. I think the main issue was shooting with a very basic film camera that didn’t have any light-metering capabilities. Being that the film is 100 ISO, it needs a lot of light and I was always trying to shoot any and everywhere which wasn’t always in the brightest setting…

Film dump from last month featuring many of the people and activities I was around which I shot with the @manual_nyc 35mm camera that I’ve been playing with lately. Seems like the last roll was better in terms of color but this was shot with Kodak Portra 400 unlike the Fuji film previously. Also half the shots were ruined because I somehow managed to get the camera strap into them, lol. Friendly reminder to myself why I never have a strap on my dSLR. Enjoy…

A while back, I acquired this 35mm reusable film camera from @manual_nyc which I stumbled upon one random night. It’s like this ‘sustainable replacement’ for disposable cameras just made out of plastic with a built-in flash and manual wind. I don’t know why it seemed so interesting to me but I ordered it not realizing it was back ordered for months! It showed up at my office one day some time later and I only had one roll of film on my desk that hadn’t been used. It was totally the wrong type of film to throw into the camera but I figured I’d just shoot with it to get an idea of how the camera worked…
