I love watching the sunrise, although there are only a few places to admire the sunrise in my hometown, and Teluk Chempedak is the place I usually go to do this.
Teluk Chempedak is a famous beach in Kuantan, Pahang. It is a popular place among the locals for some fun and relaxation. Most of the people from other places who visit Kuantan will pay a visit to Teluk Chempedak too. There are many things to do at the beach such as picnicking, kite flying, water sports and swimming. Teluk Chempedak is also known as a famous spot to watch the sunrise.
Teluk Chempedak is just about a 10- to 15-minute drive from my house. It has become the regular place I go to for admiring the sunrise because it is near my house and the beach is the place where I love to hang out. I have been to Teluk Chempedak for the sunrise a few times. To be able to catch the sunrise, I must be at the beach before 6.30 in the morning. Usually, I am such a lazy girl who refuse to wake up and leave my comfortable bed too early. But for the chance of welcoming a beautiful sunrise, I always set the alarm the day before and wake up immediately when the clock rings.
Sitting on the sandy beach and waiting for the sun to rise is such an amazing moment. I like how the sea breeze blows on my face gently. Once a while, I can hear birds chirping. I like to see how the sky changes its colors when the sun rises. It is stunning especially when the weather is good and the sky is clear that day.
Here are some of the sunrise photos which I took in three different days.
Welcoming the sunrise is definitely a great way to kick start a brand new day!
There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java. My boyfriend and I usually go hiking together so we decided to spend our long weekend holiday (three days/two nights) at Mount Papandayan.
“Let me tell you about my life turning blue”. Those were the first words the guy on the bench said as he sat down beside me whilst I was eating my lunch. Usually, I prefer to eat alone but there was something about this opening sentence which really intrigued me; so I told him “Sure buddy, go ahead. Tell me about your life in blue”.
I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
What are your weekends like? Do you usually go on a date? Or perhaps you hang out with your family? Is playing video games on top of your weekend activities? I used to do those things. But it all changed since I met film photography. Find out more after the jump!
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
Where do I begin? Believe me, I know many places in Bandung. From a cozy cafe to where the famous street food and maybe even drinks can be found, to places for lomowalks, it would be my pleasure to show you all around Bandung - the city I love and the city of love!
Lubitel for lovers+. You're probably wondering, "Why is there a '+'?" It's to describe and expand a whole new definition of the Lubitel - in this case, this camera is not only for lovers literally, but also for anyone who loves to shoot portraits, street scenes, objects, and the skies.

There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
Apologies for making you go through my "weekend with my BFFs" shots, but I do want to share with you some easy tips and ideas to shoot your Lomo'Instant in the daylight and outdoor. This is especially aimed at people who don't read manuals.
Every year I get the winter blues. I start imagining the feel of the sunrays, ice cold beer after a long summer day, and the endless hours spent on the beach. I have captured moments, memories, and dreams this year, which is my favorite thing to do. This is a short version and visual diary of my year 2014.
