Filme Home, Hong Kong 2013

For someone who shoots film, Filme has to be on your itinerary when you visit Hong Kong, if only for the thrill of seeing the biggest collection of films in the world. I was ooh-ing and ahh-ing as I scrutinised every film stock that the owner has collected over the years. There's also a good selection of film and film cameras for sale (a tad overpriced, imo). But what really sucked most of our time there was paging through these two enormous photo albums of sample photographs of all the negative or slide films the owner has come across and used. What an amazing resource! It was so awesome to compare and contrast between so many type of films stocks and to see how what the developed prints of rare films look like.
