Spending Some Time in Punta Taytay

7

Literally means "just over the bridge" is perhaps one of my most memorable times hanging out with my friend, TJ.

When I was still having a stay in Bacolod City, Negros some two years ago, I met a friend who was into photography. I introduced to her some of my film cameras and she got hooked. Few weeks later she had a Holga 135BC.

She asked me to come over Punta Taytay. We went there and we were surprise because the sun was setting down beautifully. So I grabbed my cameras and took some photos of the place. Punta Taytay has a long stretch of beach. We often go there during night time and have a bottle of beer or two under the stars. There are a lot of families staying there, too.

Basically, when you view the beach, you can see the Guimaras Island but very faraway. Also, there are a lot of people who catch fishes and others, some marine species which I cannot name.

Yes, the place was great. I love the sunset.

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
