I brought the Olympus OM-2000 for Moonshine, 14th December 2006, but didn’t lock the film properly. Fortunately, I also took shots with my Canon Powershot A520 and infrared-modded Fujifilm Digital Q1 (using the Olympus 35-70mm F3.5-4.8 lens, which is best used on the Q1 to keep it in the telephoto range of 210-420mm, or 6-12x zoom of a point-and-shoot).
But first, a random muscle-looking car in my neighborhood! I wish my dad didn’t throw away the Datsun 120Y. Come to think of it, it looks like a rounded muscle car. Heck, despite being a 1.2 liter car, its engine had a roar that was unmistakeable. No other car had that sound, and you could pick out the sound amongst a jam. Being rear-wheel-drive, it is suited for drifting (though my dad did none of that. I think.)
Naked Breed, hard rockers, and hot chick photographer with hot tattoo.
“Whatchoo looking at?”
Flatline, alternative rock.
“YEAH! ROCK ON! FREEBIRD!”
Ferns, dreamy pop.
Adlin (playing guitar for Ferns) looks so cute shaven!
Ojie of Stonebay, grunge rockers.
Open mike; rock band!
These funky tattoos belong to Ziel‘s vocalist.
Raffique of Ziel. This shot was taken by Rachel (Ian‘s friend) with the Seagull 50mm F1.8 lens on the Q1. Amazing! Everybody else who tried to shoot with that 300mm-equivalent-crop camera would either take out-of-focus pictures or pictures with handshake (according to the rule of thumb, you’d need 1/300th of a second to get a steady shot.) She focused spot on, and didn’t shake at 1/60th of a second. Plus the composition and moment was captured, too!
I wasn’t quite looking forward to the lineup though; I’d seen each band a dozen times before, and Stonebay has gotta get out of their same old four chords. I came anyway because out of the blue, old friends called, asking to hang out, so I invited them all.
