Fun Under the Sun: Beach, Camping, and Friends

During the Summer of 2012, university orientation group camp and I at Sentosa Singapore. It was beach day in Sentosa during Engineering Camp.

This roll was shot on my Holga 120N last summer during the Engine Camp 2012 at Sentosa. I had the E100G cross-processed. What I love about cross processing are the vibrant colors that scream at you.

It’s been a year since then, but I still remember the beautiful sun, sand, and sea. Those were carefree days, without worries. The only thing on my mind was whether the photos would develop nicely so that I could keep physical pieces of these memories and look at these photos with nostalgia.

Beach sunshine

I love the sun in summer. It’s especially beautiful on film. Everything fascinated me; from a friend climbing a tree, to the sea, to confetti in the sand. Take a walk on the soft sand at the beach, swim out in the lukewarm water. Those are the things you can’t do in the dreary rain.

Games

We indulged in games in the sun during the camp. There’s something enjoyable about watching friends smile, laugh, and bond. Sadly, cross-processed E100G doesn’t produce skin tones very well. But, I’m learning.

What’s the beach without dunking? It’s ritual for us to pick people off one by one, carry them to the sea, and dunk them. There are even multiple styles of doing it: Regular, Superman etc.

We became friends fast over the summer. We connected. We became close friends. But summer will come to a close, and now relationships have crumbled. Do happy days last forever? Will they come again?

    Analog By Nature

    It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!

    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.

    Two Days and One Night in Vibrant Sapa

    For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.
