Documenting the post Covid-19 lockdown nights with the Fujifilm X-Pro3.

After a productive succession of 5 photography reviews during the 56 days Singaporean version of a Covid-19 lockdown (post here) the government called a circuit-breaker, the whole nation restarted steps back to normalcy with most activities allowed to resume Jun 19 onwards.

my setup – the X-Pro3, XF18mm with a Classic Chrome simulation adjusted to emulate Kodak Portra

Of course, there are articles showing how life post-circuit-breaker is like in the shopping belts and malls. To me that’s not ‘real’ enough and this mini series is on documenting how life post-circuit-breaker happens in the neighbourhood, with a slant to showing activities on the first night post-Covid-19 lockdown with the Fujifilm X-Pro3 & XF18mm f2.

Disclaimer:
1. All images were shot with the X-Pro3 and XF18mm, using Classic Chrome edited to simulate Kodak Portra.
2.  I reserve ownerships to these images, I am generally very easy-going with ownership as I believe photography should be generous. Still, there have been a few cases where readers have notified me of others who have used the images for purposes of profit.

He was really pissed at me as he thought I wanted to report him for flouting the face-mask rule while outside.
