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 an attempt to save this blog from utter oblivion.
February was great. March is going to be even better.
Happy leap day!
Times like these I just want to roll around in bed, hide under the covers and not get up.
Sometime next week, I will be seeing this beauty again!
Coincidentally, last May 19 was my parents’ wedding anniversary. 31 years, wow. They’re an inspiration, truly. 🙂
I am getting a bit seasick, and by seasick I mean homesick for the sea.
How I’d love to be that person right now.
Cannot let another Thursday pass without a throwback post! Since the May 1 fiesta is almost here, let me introduce you to another celebration: Toslob Festival in Poblacion, Oslob, Cebu. This happened last December 2013, under the scorching heat of the sun so props to all participants for giving their best! 🙂
The trip was a fail (we didn’t have a proper dive due to bad weather), but the island is gorgeous.
I’m itching to go back.
