Embracing Nature the Analogue Way

2012-08-13

Time for some analogue adventures! Let’s see what came out of a day in the jungle with my analogue camera.

During the last 3 months, I was doing my practicum as a teacher in a secondary school. One moment that I cannot forget is when I accompanied the students for their Team Building in Pangsun, under the district of Hulu Langat, Selangor, Malaysia.

The program was held in Harap Redha Camp, which provides basic facilities like dormitories and hall. The camp was located on higher ground, surrounded by hills. Realizing that the place I’m about to go to is an all-green, lush beautiful forest, I brought along my UWS loaded with Lomography CN400 film.

The students
Can you guess which one is the teacher? Clue:There are two teachers in each photo. ;)

The place was peaceful. During the morning we can see the fog covering half of the hills around us while in the evening, there were cute, fluffy white clouds on the blue skies. Such amazing views!

On the last day of the camp, we had a jungle trekking activity. The students were taken into the jungle, up and down the hill. It took us three hours to reach the top of the hill, where we meet a hidden treasure in the jungle – a waterfall!

A hidden waterfall. Seems so magical.

The students, who were already tired, were given some time to refresh themselves – swimming and bathing in the cool, clear water. Most of them live in urban areas where things like these are not what they would usually find on a daily basis. I’m sure that everyone had a good time.

I hope the kids would learn something from this activity and develop more concern towards nature. :)
