“Manila is not for the faint of heart. Built on water and reclaimed land, it’s an intense, congested, teeming megalopolis, the vital core of an urban network of sixteen cities and one municipality collectively known as Metro Manila. Population: over ten million and growing by the minute. Climate: tropical. Which means hot, humid, prone to torrential monsoon rains of biblical proportions.
I think of Manila as the ultimate femme fatale. Complicated and mysterious, with a tainted, painful past. She’s been invaded, plundered, raped, and pillaged, colonized for four hundred years by Spain and fifty years by the US, bombed and pretty much decimated by Japanese and American forces during an epic, month-long battle in 1945.”
Last year I had a some Instax Mini films shipped from Japan, unfortunately it was mishandled during transit. My guess is that they had probably stored the films way above room temperature. That’s what you get for using some cheap ass shipping company. The result I get when using these films were a like lab rat version mixed with Satan’s piss, where it looked like it was shot through a yellow filter or redscaled.
What is really irritating about it is that there were around 40+ various designs of Instax Mini 10-shot films which I was going to sell at our online shop. But since it would be charged a fuckload if I had it shipped back to Japan, I decided to keep the films instead of having them replaced. I was also unable to notice that most of the films in that batch had expired a month ago. So I was forced to shoot with the expired lab rat films and will be probably shooting with it until I ran out of ammo.
Notes: 5 / 5 months ago
