You’ve got this. You are enough, and you are going to be okay.
Starting the love month by posting this picture taken with my dream camera – a Pentax 67! Nat Bucag was kind enough to let me borrow the cam and lug it around. This is my favorite shot from a roll of Portra 160:
Gaaah I’m in love!!! My heart skipped a beat when I saw the scan. Here’s to hoping that the universe would conspire and I could get my own Pentax soon!
I just had a cup of coffee and while feeling psyched I went on a blog-hopping spree and got super inspired (and crazy jealous) by this travel blog so I just had to post something on mine.
This is around a 45-minute exposure. The lovely thing about film and my Canon FTb (no batteries required, and with a mirror lock-up feature) is that I can leave it and it does its job. No need for stacking images on Photoshop!!
The yellowish patch at the bottom right corner is a cloud-covered moonset; also I think I was pointing at Orion here? The three lines of nearly identical thickness a quarter from the left is the belt. Haha I suck at giving directions. The thick line in the middle on the left is Rigel. Ah what the hell, let’s bust out Stellarium for a clearer reference:
After fiddling with the date and time arrows, the Stellarium image matched up with mine. Now I have an idea when exactly I took the photo. I don’t remember the moon to be a thin, waxing crescent, but there you go! Astronomy is fun you guys!! 🙂
…is the spot we chose to watch the sun vanish behind the moon.
I didn’t think I would miss this place but I really, really do. Ternate, you are my summer fling—a one-time affair but what an amazing, memorable experience it has been. Thank you for having me.
