Picturing Happiness: Goofy Moments With My Sister

4

A lot of my happiness comes from the people around me -- and this one is a bit special. Last month, my sister visited me in London, all the way from New Zealand!

A few weeks ago sister made the long trip over from New Zealand. It was the first time that I have seen anyone from my family for over a year, so it was very exciting. It was also her birthday, so as a present, I got her her first analogue camera: a La Sardina Camera and Flash - Grand Cru.

While she was here I wanted to get as many photos of her as possible. We had a great time, mostly just hanging around and being silly like we used to. My sister always makes me smile, and these photos of her definitely made me giggle when I got them back from the lab! Here are a few that make me really happy.

Enjoying the summer

It makes me glad that I captured some of our time on film, especially the silly bits. And the great thing about waiting for your film to come back from the lab is that two weeks after she had left, I got all these moments back again as prints! That’s what has made me happy this month, and I think that having these pictures is going to make me happy for a long time afterwards too. Hooray for family and silly pictures!

    My First Indisposable Project

    The idea behind this project was to shoot 24 moments in one week's time using a disposable camera. Incidentally, a friend from Seattle sent me two disposable cameras so I was finally able to participate. Disposable cameras aren't sold in Manila anymore. I timed my shoot during the week wherein I had to go out several times, also hoping for good weather.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
