Funeral Party (of Space Hijackers)

Party party-1-A09A4902

On the Halloween night, an Anarchist group Space Hijackers had their own funeral.

Is it really mean the end of their organization or it was just another ploy to attract

party goers, are waited to be seen. (They might  say, Goodness, We were resurrected.)

Anyway, what ever the excuse, it was a good busy party.  (Though, with rather slow

music, I did little dancing and spent most of the time photographing the people.

—– on the big party, DJ doesn’t go to hard-core = they do soft focus too.  😀  )

Photo was taken by my  two-element homemade lens.  (Originally a small  plastic lens

came from a toy camera and its 27 mm focal length was extended by a short-eye-sighted

specs lens from Hoya.  It’s called Retrofocus Lens design and the focal length now is

38 mm which enabled the lens to be used on the DSLR.)   I like this soft focus lens

—– but, it has no control.  And almost all blind shooting. (No use of finder)

Still, pocket sized flash-light with umbrella worked pretty well.  I like it.

I’m not putting caption to each photo.   They are as it looks.  

And you must know your own photo. = You can Copy if you like.

Some familiar faces are the old members of Hijackers and they do

all the work and DJ as well.

BTW, if you are not happy with those fuzzy images,  you’ve bumped to the wrong man.

You should have asked your friend’s iPhone to have your own photo taken.

The photos were taken by the lens I made myself = (and I’m qualified to do this kind. )

They were aimed to be fuzzy. ( fuzzy but omnifocus = thanks, no need to focus.)

Photo is for a fun (of myself) = if you ask me serious business, I have to charge !  😀 


PS :  Other photographer wondered the lighting technique, how they were done ? =

It was not an ordinary flash-lighting, nor white plastic cap kind or bounce flash.

It was a handheld lighting of a flash with small umbrella ( — see the photo.)

(Umbrella was an one-off special made and the support frame was my handmade.)

    Thank you Yoshi. It has been too long since I have seen you. I am very glad that you came. One of the highlights of my night.

      Three, Four years since ? — Anyhow, I found something, somebody haven’t changed much.
      (Though, I’m getting old. ha ha ha. :-D)

    I am not that much into funeral parties, or halloween, but the Anarchist group Space Hijackers sounds interesting. And looks interesting!

      Some are activist or social outsider. otherwise just a fun-loving joker.
      Yet still, the life has to go on — to see the same person some years
      apart and know the sign of change — make me quite philosophical.

      Yah, even a Zennist does joke sometime. 😀
      (So, even a photo is a fuzzy joke — ??? got drunk ?
      Make druzy photo without having even a single drop of drink = is the joke ! )

      Thank you. The great effort was put into make the Lens works. — once it was done, all the photos came out with that fuzziness = automatic !
      I’m not making photo fuzzy, the Lens did. 😀

        Too groovy. Very impressive skills. Exceedingly adroit with camera and lens, indeed. Your work is very inspiring. Best wishes,
