Hello my dear friends, it’s been a while since I last posted eh? Life happened…
And what’s new is I am well into film photography these past few days. So, I’d like to share to you all some photos from the Diana Mini that did turn out so nice. It was loaded with a Fuji Superia 200.
Here’s a young lady who’s a photography aspirant using the Fisheye One.
These were taken in Carlsbad when we visited The Flower Fields. It was a beautiful place with beds of Ranunculus in different color variation.
We also tried the Sweet Pea maze and the flowers really smell sweet. I didn’t mind getting lost each time.
To me, this film photography promises a great weird, unexpected aberrations and over-saturated colors. Plus there’s a nice element of mystery that you just don’t get with digital cameras.
Ahhh, was busy these past few days of the month restructuring life and its intricacies but I still managed to make flower photos though. Here they go.
How are you all my dearies?
To a big beautiful resurrection. May you shine out into the world with all your magnificence!
Today is Black Saturday in the Lent season of Catholics, a time to fast and abstain from anything you favor in life. So, I was thinking whether to go on my daily walking. I still went ‘coz I call it my “gratitude walk” anyway and I label myself as part Catholic (it’s where I started) and more of a Buddhist these days.
I make my daily walk a “gratitude walk” by consciously focusing on all that is right in your world and feeling.
The deep inner thankfulness, contentment and peace. I let the gratitude build on gratitude until there is just one seamless flow of ease and openness.
***Photos were taken today using my mobile device and edited on Snapseed.
Why is it called the Golden Gate Bridge? Well, this is a question that a lot of people ask themselves, including me when I first visited it a few years back. In fact, many San Francisco residents don’t know the story of the bridge’s name, so I’m not alone! you are not alone!
Well, this term actually refers to the Golden Gate Strait which is the entrance to the San Fran Bay from the Pacific Ocean. Since the bridge straddles the Golden Gate Strait, it makes sense that it would be called the Golden Gate Bridge! A lot of folks believe that the Golden Gate Strait and Golden Gate Bridge were named after California’s famous gold rush, but this is not the case. The gold rush had nothing to do with the naming of the Golden Gate.
It’s gold though! Those wondering “Why is it called the Golden Gate Bridge?” have probably noticed that the bridge is actually gold. Well, technically the bridge is painted a color called “orange vermilion,” which is also known as “international orange.” Its bright color was selected because of its name and location – making it truly “The Golden Gate Bridge.” (sources say from my surface browsing).
On other other news, the sad and great news… I am not allowed to drink any caffeinated beverages these days and yes, that includes my favorite “coffee” . The reason? it’s my hyper-acidity gone wild , for how long? I dunno. To me, this is the perfect time though (not the hyper-acidity) ‘coz I’ve been trying to tame the addiction for a while now and as the saying goes – “old habits die hard”, I wasn’t any close to being successful on that department. So, yeah…
Happy spring anyway!
