Weekly Photo Challenge: Relic! This Kodak sign is a real Relic for a photo challenge captured in Singapore Chinatown. The sewing man and relaxing man with the bicycle shop is also somehow a relic of our time.

  2. I just delivered a film roll for developing a few days ago. It was in an old point&shoot camera that my dad used to have. My dad shot the first few photos many years ago, so It’ll be a surprise to see what’s on the film…

    • Thanks for stopping by Cardinal. I Hope the film did not catch any light during the years and they still know how to handle film. 🙂

  3. Brilliant choices for the challenge, and great photos too. My favorite is the last photo. I can’t help smiling to see the guy took a rest but also peeking looking at you 😉

    • Thank you Indah. Yea you’re right. It was the second shot probably he woke up from the first click of the shutter 🙂

  4. Aha, such an interesting concept for Relic. Lovely imagery. Should I say, you captured two relic lives deep in their world. 🙂

    Do visit mg ‘relics’ as well. Thanks 🙂

  5. Great examples for the challenge!

    • Ohh thank you Madhu you made my day. I was first not so sure about it and thought I should post maybe better some ruins or old tractors I did in the second post.

  6. You are right, almost a relic (but not yet!), excellent idea Erwin!

  8. Excellent shot for this week’s challenge. I still see these kinds of sewing shops by the roadside in Malaysia, though they are slowly dwindling away. And Kodak! As a kid, my parents always took us a to a Kodak shop – again beside the road – to get my passport photo taken – it had to be a Kodak shop because my parents found it iconic (don’t know why, maybe it’s a trusted brand).

    • Thank you very much for your kind comment Mabel. Kodak was for sure a trusted brand and is now a struggling company because the digital photography. I remember well the Kodak Instamatic 100 Camera somehow one of the first compact cameras thought.

      • No, thanks Erwin for taking me back to a time in my past. Always good revisiting memories.

        Now that you mention it, Kodak was all the rage back then in the 90s and early 2000s. At some point, someone in my family owned a Kodak point-and-shoot and we all loved using it. Very family-oriented brand back then, I reckon. So true that they are a struggling brand because of the digital revolution. Photography these days seems less family, more about individual, personalised moments.

        • You are right Mabel, Selfies did not exist, almost not 🙂 but family photos with self timer was in the trend. But now enjoy your photography and the immediate review of the work and no surprises after picking up the photos. 🙂

  9. Inspired choice and pic for the challenge.

  10. so gotta agree with Paul Simom: Mama don’t take my Kodachrome away! It’s a sad day….Great relic.

  11. Bravo. I just noticed that there not that many shoe repair shops around anymore. I guess the lower prices of shoes have made the shoe repair shop a thing of the past. Thanks for sharing these photos.
