    On a Sunday, summer morning I decided to take a break from the typical touristic sites around Paris and headed to Parc des Buttes Chaumont, located on a hill in the northeast side of Paris in the 19th arrondissement.

    London Through the (Analog) Eyes of My Mother

    A few months ago, I gave my mom a La Sardina (the Mobius version) and she fell in love with it at first sight. This article documents how she saw London during her first visit there through her "analog" eyes.

    A First Roll of Rollei Nightbird Redscale 800

    I had bought a roll of Rollei Nightbird in 35mm some months ago and I was saving it for a special occasion. In early July I had the chance of spending a weekend in Paris and I just focused mostly on taking photos. I loaded my Lomo LC-A+ with this film roll and gave it a try. These are the results and my feeling about it.
