My 2012 in Analogue: Lomotraveling

2012 is coming to an end. It is time for me to look back at 2012. This year has been a lucky year for me as I was able to travel to four different places in a year.

In March, I went to Bali, Indonesia with my boyfriend and friends. Bali is a beautiful place with great food, rich art and culture. Nice architecture, sculptures, carvings and paintings can be found all around Bali. It is a great place to walk around and take some pictures. The sunset view in Bali was breathtaking and worth a watch. It was an amazing experience to see how the sky changed its colors during sunset. Bali is definitely worth a visit.

Australia has been a country I wanted to visit since I was a little kid, probably because of the animals. Finally, I got the chance to step my feet on this beautiful land in June with my family. I managed to meet and pat the koala, wallaby and kangaroo in a wildlife park. I was so excited! It was end of autumn so the weather was cooling and great for walk. My family and I enjoyed walking around the city. I loved looking at the autumn leaves. The colors were beautiful. It was an unforgettable experience for me.

Koh Samui, Thailand was the third place I traveled in the year of 2012. I went there with my boyfriend in August. Koh Samui is a beautiful island. It attracted a lot of tourists every year. We went for two different island hopping trips in two separate days. Those trips were great I enjoyed myself a lot. Besides island hopping, we went to some tourist spots such as Chaweng Beach, Grandfather and Grandmother Rocks as well. Other time, we just stay in the resort to chill and relax.

Palawan, Philippines was my last travel destination in year 2012. My sister was the planner and I just tagged along.I spent a day walking around Manila City before my flight to Palawan the next day. In Palawan, we spent most of our time in El Nido. We joined three different island hopping tours in three different days. Then, we went to Puerto Princesa Underground River for a visit before heading back Manila to catch a flight back home.

Thanks to my beloved LC-Wide, I was able to capture many photos during my trips to keep as a memory. Hopefully I will be able to travel as frequent as I wish in 2013.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
