    Greetings from Mexico

    Another belated post of vacation photos. Rodrigo and I traveled to Mexico this past May to celebrate his birthday. We visited 4 cities in 8 days. It was a jam-packed schedule but we still managed to find time to relax at the beach. I have a ton of pictures from Frida Kahlo’s home in Mexico City. I couldn’t resist taking pictures of the beautiful blue walls and the lush gardens. Oaxaca was also a super fun city to photograph. I loved the bustling marketplace. My biggest goal was to use two rolls of film in a short amount of time. I was just shy of that, but I’m very happy…

    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…

    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.

    Packing Woes

    I started packing more than a week before my flight. I admit it; I’m a slow packer and I’m incapable of doing it all in one go. To make matters worse, I’m a very messy packer. (I”m so glad that you’re not here to see it because I think it would drive you crazy.) I like to make piles of things that I should pack, but for some reason or another they’re not ready for the suitcase yet. So I have piles of things all over the room. A pile of shoes, a pile of clothes on the bed, a pile of toiletries, etc. I’m also a very paranoid packer.…

    Buenos Aires: Week 3

    Whoops, well this is a few months overdue. I’ve been lazy. Most of the pictures taken on my last week were at Recoleta Cemetery. Jonathan and I ended up going here on a whim after one of our classes let out early.
