These are shots from two rolls of 120 film during a three-week travel to Europe. Can’t believe that in the entire tour, I only used the Rolleiflex for a grand total of… two!!! rolls!!! And they resulted in such gorgeousness that I’m mentally kicking myself for not shooting more medium format; it was a trip of a lifetime for godssakes Bea

Guess I just have to go back

Black and White’s where it’s at

Film scanning prices have soared (from 75php to 200php, wtf!) and it bums me out. I should really shoot more black and white film, and digitize with a dslr, or set up a darkroom and print directly to eliminate the need for high-cost scans.

Or you know, just shoot purely digital?

But hmm nahhh I love film too much

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!! 🙂

Throwback Thursday: Rustic Mornings

One of the perks of being a Marikenya is that my favorite breakfast place Rustic Mornings is a stone’s throw away. My high school friend, Christine and I celebrated the new year (2015) in this quaint house-turned-restaurant full of interesting details and yes, good food! Going through the photos is enough to make me hungry:

The salad breakfast is the best food shot I have taken.. the colors pop and the green just looks so fresh I’m in love aagh ♥ It’s also as delicious as it looks (the salad anyway; the chicken fillet was meh, but the waffles did not disappoint). Another visit to this garden restaurant is in order!
