The Capitol at Washington D.C.

6

D.C.'s as blue as ice. There is so much to see and so much to explore. But of course, make sure it's on a warm season.

Five days after President Obama was sworn into office, my family drove to the nation’s capital for a mini-vacation. It turned out to be one of the coldest vacation ever. Sure, it was sunny and the skies were clear but the gusts of wind made the whole thing unbearable. We only managed to stay outdoors for less than an hour and made a beeline for the hotel.

But it also turned out to be one of my most favorite sets. The Kodak Professional Elite Chrome (200 iso) just blew my eyes the moment I got my prints from the lab. It was just so perfectly blue! I would definitely recommend going to Washington D.C. There is so much to see and so much to explore. But of course, make sure it’s on a warm season.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    The LomoChrome Purple and How Its Colors Convinced Me in the End

    I wasn't very impressed when the LomoChrome Purple was first released. At least not so much that I wanted to get my hands on it at once. Of course I liked some pictures but eventually, I wanted to test it and what can I say? It was love at first sight!

    Fresh From the Lab: Take Off Your Socks and Shoes - It's Summertime!

    Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!

    Object of my Affection: Deer of Every Kind!

    ... but of course, living deer! I don't know what it is that excites me so much about deer. Close to where I live is a small deer enclosure. I feel so sorry for the little guys, but I love to visit them and feed them apples and walnuts.

    Fresh from the Lab: Silvia Precisa

    Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!
