Feeling rather ultra 70's hippie chic meets grunge. I was big on textures that night with the crochet and layering. These shots were taken just over a week ago when Tim and I had one of those more 'failed' nights where nothing was really going according to plan in terms of shooting, yet surprisingly the photos turned out better than expected even with so many complications that day.
Initially we had set out to visit the Bizarre Bazaar lane-way markets in the city right after Tim had finished work on a Thursday, as well as squeeze in a few shots here and there because it had been awhile since he had taken his camera out for a spin. We ended being lost due to incorrect published mapping directions, delayed GPS responses, wrong and missed turns. We were also stuck in heavy traffic and before you know it we arrived at the markets with only less than a remaining 30minutes of trading. A little annoyed at how our night had lagged on, we ended up skipping the remainder of Bizarre Bazaar and just took the opportunity to take a few quick snaps before our grumbling stomachs were ready to devour anything in sight. Even though it was completely dark by that time, I'm absolutely pleased about how these photos actually turned out particularly after both of us were feeling rather buggered, moody and extremely hungry, and to top it all off his flash was out of batteries also. At the time we weren't bothered making the excessive walk out to the nearest convenience store for batteries for his flash - even though we really needed it, but instead we had to make do with the amount of lighting there was available around that area. However as I've mentioned earlier, we did far better than expected, and Tim managed to pull off a few greats shots without a flash believe it or not.
Eventually our hunger took over the best of us and a decent Korean barbeque feast was all we were looking forward to after a night of so many mishaps. Belly full and satisfied, I'm glad Tim and I still managed to stick out the frustration. I guess sometimes things don't always go accordingly to plan... but these photos certainly have hehe.
