Singapore - Lomo LC-A

























I love this camera. It totally showed how it felt to be in Singapore. Being so tired and not adjusting to the time change, it being a big blur from constantly going non-stop every day, the expressions on people's faces (not many smiles, I'll tell you that). The flight there and the flight back is something I would not wish on my mortal enemy (if I had one). 27 hours on a plane makes my ankles swell up like a pregnant lady. And for someone my size, American Airlines is a cruel, cruel way to fly. However, Japan air? Man, that was the best thing ever. They were so nice, constantly making sure you were comfortable, hydrated (YUZU juice!!!), and fed. It was night and day when you get on to American where they seemed put out if you ask them for a cup of water since they have not brought anything to you in 5 hours...

I heart Singapore.

It feels like Singapore is stuck in a timewarp.

Weird. Cool shots.

american flights are the worst. they treat you like garbage and expect you to want to fly their crappy planes for a $5 can of pringles that really should cost 50 cents.

i love these pictures. are singaporeans unhappy because they have so many rules?

i'm from singapore.. and these shots capture so much. the tired people, the lack of smiles, the forgotten and the replaced.
it is a land full of laughter too, though seeing these shots at this particular moment really got me. thanks for letting the real emotions show. =)
