Hat Yai

25 - 30 April 2014




"with my 50/2 Leica Summitar"





I shot a roll of Portra 400 and a roll of Tmax 400 in Hat Yai. Please read my Penang Travelogue
for more information on the 50 Summitar. Hat Yai was where I tested this circa 1939 uncoated
lens with color film photography. In essence, this lens is more suited for black and white.



Flare flare and more flare. While B/W films are more forgiving at times, color c-41 manifests
the imperfections of this uncoated glass really well.



Despite being daylight balanced, somehow the colors of Portra are slightly off the scale with my 50 Summitar.



A mega mall.



Not much contrast in color.



Flaring heavily despite a summitar adapter with a 3rd party long hood.






You can say that it gives color films a more vintage tinge.



Hat Yai is located in the deep south of Thailand. There is nothing much to do other than shopping and eating.







Some random street scenes...














some b/w films..
