    Peru Travels

    Another post where I admit that I am terrible at posting photos. It is nearing a year since I traveled to Peru and it’s about time that I post the photos that I took. This is where I also admit that I am a horrible tourist – especially when I only bring a film camera. I’m really hesitant to take pictures when it’s on film because it’s so expensive to buy film and develop. Every picture counts. So of course, when I got all my pictures developed, I realized how little I had taken while I was there. Oops. Granted, I took a lot more pictures on my phone, but…

    Sweater Beats at the Festival of Colors

    I just realized that I’ve been hoarding a lot of my photos recently. I’m about to get another roll of film developed, but I haven’t put up any pictures online. Here’s a few photos from the Holi Fest from several months ago. The Holi Festival is a Hindu festival held to celebrate the coming of spring.

Now that I have more time on my hands, I have become more interested in art form of letter-writing. While I’m waiting for Caitlin to write back, I find myself obsessing over how to write my next letter, from my writing instruments…

    Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires

    More than one year later, I finally got my black & white film from Argentina developed. This post complements my Buenos Aires: Week 3 post. I had alternated taking photos on my digital camera and my Leica point-and-shoot that day. I’m super happy with how my shots on film came out. Usually, after a trip, I get upset that I didn’t take more pictures on film… But by the way these photos turned out, I’m really happy that I was choosy with each shot. I think there were only a few shots in this roll  that I didn’t like.
