Cameras

I love Saturdays. I have spent today reading, eating, doing washing, playing music loud…

This is my song for today – Zero 7, Sia’s just got such a good voice!

I’m gutted I left my Holga in the UK. Last minute when I had too much stuff, I decided that I would not take it and buy one in Thailand. I was sure it would be easy… after all I originally bought it on ebay from Asia… Hong Kong I think.

Thailand though, not so much.

So today I went on a bit of a hunt. Good old google pointed me in the direction of ‘Loft’ in Siam Discovery Centre, I don’t think I’ve ever been in there! It’s a really cool shop actually, there’s lots of random bits and bobs, gifts and the like. Now I wish I had a photo or two to put up… hmph.

Well after looking around the whole 2 floors of the shop… I came out and realised the cameras were right by the entrance I had come in. Typical. They had a Takeshi Camera, which I guess is a digital Holga, and some other various underwater cameras, and a couple of Holgas, I think they were both 35mm film ones, glass lens and one was a TLR I think. They were around the 4000 baht mark!! That’s quite a lot for a plastic camera! Hmmmm…

Next I went into B2S in Central World. Came across another Twin Reflex at 990 baht and a few underwater cameras a lot cheaper.

But not much selection. I may try chinatown. Fingers crossed.

So now I am eating instant noodles, on account of all the rain that has just happened. Getting a little worried about the flooding… but I think I’ll be ok where I am… wait and see!
