Escape, Into Your Own Backyard!

When the time in the city becomes weary and incredibly slow, it's always a prime time to go home, kick up my feet, and relax in my backyard. Yes, it seems silly, but really, the backyard is like your own little oasis - a garden of whatever you want it to be. Add some colorful masks to your Lomography camera, and you're set to go.

I live on the Pacific Island of Oahu, which is part of the state of Hawaii. Yes, it’s all beautiful and paradise, as it seems to everyone else, but we still struggle to get through the day with jobs, school, and having a life.

Whenever I come home after a busy morning and afternoon, I try not to just plop into bed and sleep for the rest of the day away, as tempting as that may be. Interestingly enough, it’s a beautiful thing to take some time to breathe, and appreciate the small things at home that make it…well, home.

One of those places is my backyard garden. My parents and I have carefully and slowly cultivated it into a somewhat self-sustaining garden, growing vegetables and herbs. So far, we’ve gotten some lettuce, cabbage, cucumbers, tomatoes, hot peppers, and other herbs like mint and basil. It’s really quite satisfying to see and eat from.

Surrounding our food garden is the lush grass that I scamper around on and crunch between my toes. I decided to take some photos and take advantage of the lovely sunny day.

I also decided to put in a rainbow mask into my Lomo LC-A+. It is simply a piece of translucent tape, colored on the sticky side to prevent ink bleed with as many colors as I could find. Turns out, the colors nicely mesh with the sunny, outdoors theme.

When I’ve had some quality relaxation time, it’s the end of the day, and I have been thoroughly blessed to have a beautiful backyard to escape to.
