Visiting India's smallest (and most fun!) state with my ActionSampler. Gotta love the sunny and sandy beaches of Goa!
Goa is India’s smallest state. While the rest of India was ruled by the British, Goa was ruled by the Portuguese. So unlike the rest of India, Goa is full of Catholics with a lot of white-washed churches. It’s a coastal state, so it’s also famous for seafood and beautiful beaches. It was a haven for hippies in the 60s and 70s. It also has rich flora and fauna, owing to its location on the Western Ghats range, which is classified as a biodiversity hot spot.
It’s an extremely famous party destination, known for raves on the beach and cheap booze (due to the low alcohol taxes and abundances of home distilleries).
But for me Goa is very different. It is my ‘native place’. All four of my grandparents are from there, so our family visits every year. I have a lot of cousins in Goa and a home close to one of the most famous beaches in South Goa. So when I visit Goa, I get a little of both, culture and fun. Here are some shots of Goa with my ActionSampler.
I hope you liked my photos of Goa. I have another article on Goa coming up soon!
Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
I capped my 2013 with a family trip to my parents' hometowns in the province of Pangasinan, among the highlights of which was our visit to the town of Bolinao to see its famed beach and century-old lighthouse.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

If you loved the Petzval Lens, we have Joseph Petzval to thank for. The mathematician/inventor/physicist was born in Hungary, but spent most of his life in Vienna.

When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.
Let it be known: this pairing has to do with love at first click, at the first roll of film, at the first prints. My newest toy, the Yashica Electro 35 GSN, combined with my favorite black and white film, Kodak BW400 CN: this is definitely going to be a long-lasting love.
