Old Airport Road on Superexpired B&W Film
Nope, it’s not a new brand of film. I’m referring to this Kodak T400N B&W film which expired in 2007. Yea, two-zero-zero-seven. A colleague who previously dabbled in film photography passed it down to me. Thank you Uncle David!
With an ancient film like this, I thought it will be appropriate to shoot at some beat-up, stuck-in-a-time-warp location. Old Airport Road has always struck me as such. I’ve passed by the area on a few occasions and always noticed a vintage playground (with sand!) peeking through the faded blocks of housing estates.
#1 Concrete Crane | LC-A+ RL
The old playgrounds usually have a dragon facade as their main feature. I remember spending fun times at the one near my grandma’s place. However, this comes with a twist in the form of a crane.
#2 Reminisce | LC-A+ RL
Look back and think about those moments that slipped away unknowingly. Gone too fast, too soon.
#3 Run It Down | LC-A+ RL
Doesn’t look like it from here, but the state of the flats looked pretty rundown to say the least.
#4 Cow Cat | LC-A+ RL
Cow cat takes a afternoon siesta on her patch of concrete.
#5 Smile for Sale | LC-A+ RL
You could find the best stuff in these sort of provision shops. Tins of biscuits, colour jems, popsicles, lollipops, horlicks sweets and sng bao (tubes of colored ice).
#6 Smooth Operator | LC-A+ RL
Taken from the perspective of the shop owner. I’ve dabbled with the thoughts of being a provision shop owner when I was young. Even went to the extent of role-playing as one during playtime.
#7 KittyLicks | LC-A+ RL
The kitty licked so hard that it destroyed the film. The force is strong on this one.
That’s all I captured on this film. Return for more of Old Airport Road on other films in my next post.
