Adventures in Street Photography

35mm Street Photography in Guangzhou. A Walk Down Haizhu Beilu with a Vintage Seagull Lens.

In preparation for this week’s street photography walk I decided to dust off some of my vintage photography gear that was sitting in storage. I grabbed an old favorite – the Seagull Haiou 24/F2.8 lens and mounted it on my brand new Panasonic GX9 (with the Zhonggyi Lens Turbo II as a converter).

I was planning to head over to People’s Park in Guangzhou but decided to take a detour and venture down Haizhu Beilu instead. It is a small alley with stores selling stamps and old banknotes and coins. Apparently, stamp collecting is still a thing in 2023. It’s been over 30 years since I last looked at mine…

Back at Haizhu Beilu I explored some of the dark alleyways and fired off a few shots. Took me a while to get used to using a manual focus lens again — but I am quite proud of the images captured. Will dust off some of the remaining vintage lenses for next week’s photowalk.

To get the full vibe check out the video below.
