    Default If photography was popular back then....

    Not like nowadays, every one is posting photos from DSLR/phones but not like last time, owning a (compact) camera, is not on our top list. Just found this website, bring back some old memories. Sad to see most gone by now.

    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    don't be surprised (wherever you may be), that people will be writing such articles on "back then in 2015" and "right now in 2075"

    Fleeting moment is pretty much the theme of all ages, dating back even to the paintings.

    Then they will post a photo of you holding the vintage Sony A850 in the photo forum of the new generation.

    And they'll probably erect a monument for you at the traffic island somewhere downtown for pioneering the coffee culture in Singapore.

    During year 2000, I borrow from my colleague, the Nikon 990 (or 995, forget liao) for my grandparent house and the mosque at Bencoolen Street. 13 years passed, I recently posted on my FB. But a lot of things changed nowadays, old building no more. If someone or me invented a time machine, I will be bring my cameras back to the pass, heh heh!
