It's literally a "rainy days and Mondays"-type of day here over in Manila, so you could say that adding a dash of the gift that is Karen Carpenter is just the thing to even things out. She sang it best after all.
I think we can all agree that a person cannot qualify having a good taste in music if he/she cannot at least acknowledge the fact that Karen Carpenter possessed one of the most beautiful singing voices in history.
It was like a gentle stream running down the mountain on a spring day: smooth, crystal clear and absolutely enchanting. I was reminded by this universal fact when I stumbled upon this gorgeous stripped down version of We’ve Only Just Begun — nothing but bass, drums and Karen’s spectacular vocals.
For the benefit of those who haven’t heard of her. Karen Carpenter was an American singer and drummer, known best as one-half of the 1970s brother-sister duo, The Carpenters alongside her brother Richard. She tragically passed away on February 4, 1983 at the age of 32 from heart failure caused by complications related to anorexia, an eating disorder which she battled for years.
She may have left this world all too soon, but she will forever be immortalized in their songs. I could just listen to her all day.

The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.

In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
