Farewell 2010!

The year 2010 had been a roller coaster full of emotions for me: adjusting to married life, reality of a grownup, living away from my family, and the joy of pregnancy.

All I can say is Wow!
I have a few drafts of blog topics, experience, pictures that I'm dying to share. I'm hoping that I'll be able to blog more frequently next year.

Anyway, I'm now getting ready to say goodbye to 2010 and hello to 2011!!!

Cheers Everyone!

Trying Hard

I've been gone for too long. I missed blogging. I normally blog during the afternoons but too bad I've been having "afternoon sickness" due to my pregnancy. I'm not complaining by the way. My OB even said at least I should be thankful that I have these sickness and symptoms instead of having treatments due to infertility. She had a point. From then on, you can never hear any complains from me again.

Anyway, I'm already on my week 13 and I'm thankful I'm feeling a lot better. My only concern is I don't look pregnant! My tummy's still too small according to most people but I why do I feel it's already big? And does my baby gets enough nutrients from me?

I've posted my baby bump above, at 13 weeks. It's still acceptable to look at since I don't have (hopefully won't have) stretchmarks yet.

I think there's something wrong with the weighting scale. It says I gained just 2 lbs in 3 months but my tummy says otherwise. All of my jeans are way too tight that I've been wearing mostly leggings and garterized shorts/pants (no maternity clothes please). I want to shout to the whole world that I am pregnant without being too "vocal" about it but I always end up convincing them that I am. Hehehe.

My hubby told me not to try to hard to look like one because eventually everyone will notice. Well, I can't help it really... just too excited, I guess.

Enough of the shallowness once again. The most important thing to consider is not really what I would look like but how my baby develops. I just wish that despite how I weight during my pregnancy, my baby will be healthy. Thank God I don't like eating junk food and sweets anymor. But no matter what kind of eating I do, I still can't seem to grow big for my baby.

Hay... I'm hoping my next trimester would be better.

Hating Me Won't Make You Pretty

I don't really have a specific person in mind whom I want to tell this to but it goes to all haters out there who seems to have pure "envy" flowing in their blood.

Sometimes, I can just be amazed by how a single person can ruin the festive mood of a whole group. Why can't they just be happy for once in their lives? Emotional vampires as they say.

Hay... this is one of my shortest posts for now... since I'm carrying a life inside me, I really want to stay away from these suckers. Thank God I have my husband, our families, and best friends who shower us with all the positive vibes and happy thoughts we need.

Two Lines Means...

Positive!! I'm 6-week pregnant! Yey! I'm don't really know how to describe it but to say that I'm happy is such an understatement! Weeee!!! Hahaha!!

It took us 2 months to conceive and we're so happy that God blessed us this early! I took the pregnancy test since I've been delayed for 2 weeks already. I wanted to do the self test after I missed my period the first week but I was afraid I'll be disappointed again if I don't see a positive result. I didn't know it was heartbreaking when you're expecting that you're pregnant only to have your period the next day. So I told myself that I'll wait for a couple of weeks before taking the test.

Before the test, I've been experiencing a lot of the pregnancy signs already but like what I've said I don't want to think of it too much. But my friends, officemates, and husband all felt it could be different this time. So I took the test and alleluia! Two lines!

Then I've started reading about false positive pregnancy results since the second line wasn't as clear as the first one. Talk about Paranoia, I began to worry and doubt if there's really a life inside me. That's even with the assurance of our doctor that I'm really pregnant.

And then I had the ultrasound I've been waiting for... I saw and heard my baby's heartbeat for the first time... I was relieved. All of a sudden, all those worries and fears were immediately replaced by feelings of excitement and a feeling of hope - a new beginning of some sort. I'm going to be a mother!! =D

Walking Around Singapore

I mean this literally. My Gawd! Even with the most comfortable flip flops and shoes, my feet (and body) hurts from walking around Singapore for four days. I think I badly need a massage and a foot spa!

Anyway, back to my story. My friend and I, together with my mother, went to Singapore for a vacation and to visit two of our close friends. We were able to save a lot since our accommodation was free (courtesy of our friend of course). Our itinerary includes the Orchard Road, Esplanade, Clark Quay, Sentosa, Universal Studios, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore zoo, and Jurong Bird Park. But we decided to scratch out our planned visit to the zoo and the bird park because I don't think we can handle another day of walking.

Everyone loves a good discount. And so are we! We were thankful that our friend works at Resorts World which is inside Sentosa so we were able to get discounted tickets to Universal Studio and use that same benefit for our shopping needs inside that place.

I like Singapore. I can walk around the street at midnight without worrying that somebody would stab me and take away my money. I also like the idea of their EZ card; commuting around the city is so convenient. And what about shopping? I like the fact that a tourist can get a refund for the items they bought. I wonder, is there something like this in the Philippines? If not, I think we should. To encourage tourists to spend more in our country.

What I'm not fond of is their language - Singlish. I can't really say I hate it because that's one of the things which makes that country unique. You can say I was amused and confused while talking to Singaporeans.

What I regret though, is that I decided to have this vacation without my husband. I thought I wanted to spend traveling with my friends but I kept on thinking about him the whole time - how he would have enjoyed the food, the scenes, the rides etc. That's why when we got back home, I gave him a promise that I won't be traveling without him anymore.

Hmm... I'll definitely go back to Singapore.

Blogging.. Blog.. Blah.

Just a quick post about blogging in general. Obviously, I love blogging. I want to share myself, my opinion, my experience to the cyberworld through my own little online space. I'm not a very good writer but I know I can express myself more through writing than talking. Anyway, my day will not be complete without blog hopping. I don't frequently leave comments but I read most entries on the blogs I follow (and sometimes even those that I don't follow).

It just annoys me how some people create blog but can't find time to maintain it. It's like adopting a pet. At first, you give all your attention to it but once your pet grows, you start to neglect it. Hello, ningas cogon!

Ever since I've started this blog in 2007, I'm proud to say that I was able to create a blog entry at least once a month. I don't post daily on my blog because I know I can't maintain and keep it like that. Excuse me for ranting, just letting people know of one of my pet peeves.

Shoes For My Blues

For a person like me who takes too long to decide what to wear, I sometimes prepare the clothes for work the next morning. I'm not really a hardcore fashionista who always dress to impress but I make sure my shoes would complement my outfit. Hence, the reason for my habit.

Here's a portion of that habit:

My name is Ayen, and I'm a shoe-holic. =D

Some people call it a waste of money and unnecessary, for me it's a necessity. I have a shoe fetish and I really can't stand to see nice clothes with the wrong kind of shoes. I could understand some people might frown this shoe splurging but hey I'm spending, not them. It's also better than smoking cigarettes! And it doesn't kill.

Luckily, my husband accepted this habit eversince we started dating. Admit it, we all feel insecure sometimes and one of the many reasons I love about my husband is that he knows a new pair of shoes makes me feel good about myself. Knowing that I'm wearing a great pair makes me feel sexy, confident and fashionable.

It doesn't mean though that he doesn't complain. Because he does! Specially everytime I whine about not having many shoes. And that's how I feel - not having enough shoes for every occasion. I use to buy at least two pairs of shoes a month when I was single. Of course I now have to prioritize my "needs and wants" since I'm married.

Sorry for my shallowness. One of you must be rolling your eyes now. Yes, I do know that some people in Africa doesn't even have one pair. Arrg! I'm being too defensive. I guess it's just one of those days when I really can't find a nice pair to wear. I'm know I have a shoe habit but I'm happy to say that it's something I can handle.

The Next BIG Step

It's already nine months since we got married. For some couples, planning a family is the immediate next step. But for us, we decided to wait for a year - to give us time to enjoy our marriage by ourselves.

People we know keep asking us when we'll have a baby or why they don't notice any baby bump in my stomach. We casually answer them that we're not ready yet. They thought that we are in our early to mid twenties so it was alright anyway, that we should take our time. But eveytime I tell them that I just turned thirty, I would get the same horrified reaction - I shouldn't postpone pregnancy at my age.

At first it was okay, I just shrug it off but as time goes by it becomes annoying and somewhat disturbing. What do they care anyway? It's our life. And what if we'll have problems conceiving a child? What if we'll be one of those couples who took 5 years or more to get pregnant. So I begin to rethink our decision and asked my husband again how he feels about starting a family.

They say communication is really an important factor to a successful marriage. The funny thing is, we've both been having second thoughts about planning a family until next year. So after a sincere conversation, we've decided that we should try and get pregnant a month or two from now. So I'll better stop taking pills and start preparing my body. Yikes! But I guess excited at the same time. So excited that we already decided on a name for our future baby. Hahaha! I guess it's only normal.

Planning a family is not something like planning a vacation. Not only the physical, but I know I have to keep myself emotionally prepared... This is really a big step for me, for us. I'm scared, excited, and anxious at the same time...

Polka Loca

A few years back, I was obsessing on skulls. I've bought a few items with skulls printed on it like bangles, earrings, clothes, etc. Save for some, I find it too awkward to wear skull printed accessories for my age anymore. Specially because I'm not into grunge. Haha, that's fashion fad in my face!

Fast forward into today's scene. Ever since polka dots became a hot fashion trend last year (am I right?), I've been so into polka dots lately. Sure I wear polka dots in my bag, pouch, socks, etc but not in my clothes. I guess I don't want to be associated as someone who dresses like a granny. I mean I've always love vintage fashion except in it comes to polka dots. Not my favorite.

Well, look at me now! I have a few items in my closet and it's still growing! I guess it's because the clothes are a bit modern. Hehehe!

We've been married for more than eighth months already and finally, we were able to get our wedding album and video! We so love it!

Since I married before my kuya, it was the first wedding in our family and so my mother was actually the one who kept asking for the album and video. I bet she can't wait to show it to all their friends and our family. Hahaha!

It wasn't really our supplier's fault that it took this long for the album and video. But if you're only required to submit a maximum 200 pictures out of the more than 3000 shots taken, it might also take you months before deciding on what pictures to include in your album. It also doesn't help when the husband left all the picture selection to you. Gosh, all those pictures, it was really overwhelming!

Hay... It really feels great reminiscing our wedding. =)

Dreaming of Ballet

I was watching the movie, Center Stage, one Sunday afternoon on HBO when I remember how ballet dancing used to be my passion and greatest dream. For the benefit of everyone, the movie Center Stage is about a group of hopeful ballet dancers dancing their way to a limited slot for a final dance workshop, which would showcase their talents.

I love collecting ballerina figurines. You see, when I was a kid, I've always wanted to be a ballerina. I remember in second grade, our teacher asked us to draw what we want to be when we grow up. I was tempted to draw a teacher since it was easier to draw a stick figure with a blackboard at its background. But since I know I would have a difficult time explaining it, I asked my classmate instead to draw me a ballerina. And it felt sooo good telling everyone that I wanted to be a prima ballerina when I grow up.

I thought that childhood dream will soon be a reality when my parents enrolled me in a ballet class when I was in third grade. I enjoyed every minute of it and I also loved our attire - black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet shoes. But it was really hard - the pointed toes, plie', and splits. I had to endure all the body pains that was just too uncommon for a regular 8-year old.

Looking back, the thrice a week class and a couple of recitals proved just too much for me. My relationship with ballet lasted for just 3 years. At an early age, I realized that no matter how much you wanted something, if you're not that determined and willing to exert a lot of hardwork, then your dream will just be a dream.

Another Shopaholic

I was on my usual blog hopping mode when I saw a post from The Wifey Diaries about another book from my favorite chic lit, The Shopoholic Series. Oh boy, I really got so excited!!
I love this book because sometimes I can really relate to Becky Bloomwood (minus the financial credit card problems) on her love for shopping. I mean most girls I know does too. I can really walk around the mall all day without being tired and I can hop from one boutique to another which really annoys my otherwise normally patient husband. Hahaha! Can't wait til September for the book launch!! I wonder if reservations are now available at Powerbooks....

Photo Loco

I love looking at various pictures since I've always been a fan of photography. Digital or Analogue, it doesn't matter. Growing up, I've told myself that I'll buy the newest camera model and take photography lessons.

I can still remember my first camera, a Fuji 110 Film Format Camera. When I was in grade school, I always make sure that I have it with me during our field trip or school activities. In high school, I've started using an Olympus 135 film format camera. As usual, I always have it with me during various occasions. During college, I became a fan of camera phones. You can say that I was sort of the unofficial photographer of my different barkada, hence, I wasn't included in some of our group pics. =) When digital cameras came to the scene, I pleaded with my parents to buy one for our family (read: for me) but it took a lot of time and persuasion before they bought me one. Then along came the DSLR - everything I've ever wanted in a camera. Or so I thought.
During our wedding preps, I became obsessed with wedding photography. It was during this time when I discovered lomography. It's not something high tech. Lomography actually uses film cameras and emphasizes casual and snapshot photography.

I bought my first lomo camera in ebay, a Holga 120N with flash, for I think about Php1800 (about $39.13). My first roll of film was a disaster but it didn't stop me from buying more films. Thankfully, I got the shots and looks that I wanted. Practice indeed makes perfect. It was lomo love! I forgot I've wanted a DLSR camera. Lomo cameras are more exciting! You never know what you'll gonna get. It gives me great pride knowing that these pictures are good just the way it is and are not digitally enhanced or "photoshoped." Another good thing about this is that lomo cameras are definitely way cheaper than their digital counterparts. Camera films and developing, on the other hand, costs a lot in the long run. A 120 film (12 shots) cost more or less Php200 (about $4.35) each and to develop it would be about Php135-150 (about $2.93-$3.26) through Digiprint. That's why I asked my husband to get me a Diana mini camera with flash since it uses 135 films which means cheaper films and more shots.

I could just go on and on about my new found love on lomography. So much that I created a blog dedicated to lomo pics at But don't get me wrong, part of me still adores digital photography. I must admit that I still use my digicam as a backup just in case my lomo pictures doesn't turn out the way I wanted them to be. I still want to get myself a DLSR but not as much as I wanted to get more film cameras.

Much Ado About Everything

Oh boy. It's been more than a month since I updated my blog, and a lot had happened since my last entry. Some were funny, few were just plain nonsense, and one was almost heartbreaking. I guess I was just preoccupied with a lot things that I almost forgot about my favorite free therapy: Blogging.

Anyway, I've been busy with these things:

  • Cafe World. I've only discovered this nice game a few weeks ago and I've been hooked eversince! It's therapeutic to watch my "waiters" serve my "dishes."
  • Princess Hours. OMG! I'm not really a fan of Koreanovelas but I so love this series! I started to like it when I saw a rerun last year on channel 23 but it wasn't until I watched the beginning of the series on Animax that I really got obsessed! I was able to finish all episodes on youtube, watched it 3 times and still want more!!! Any other Koreanovelas I should watch?

  • The Notebook. I loved the book. This is how I want my marriage to be (minus the illness) -- long lasting. As for the movie, I didn't enjoy the adaptation but Rachel McAdam's clothes are an eye candy! I really love vintage clothes. I bought the DVD and fell in love again.

  • Cross stitch. I used to do a lot of cross stitching when I was in high school. I stumbled upon a thread in Girltalk which made me remeber how I enjoyed this craft. Thanks also to a Gtalker who agreed to scan some of my favorite wedding pictures for a cross stitch pattern, I may have to start my project soon.

  • Big Fight =(. My husband and I had a really big fight so I was a bit down for a few days. Good thing all is great again for us. Yay!

  • Yoga. I had the most annoying back pain few days ago and I realized that I really haven't been taking care of my body. I badly need an exercise but I don't want a very straining one. I've been researching about yoga and being flexible and all, I feel this might really work for me. I'm serious about this. Will be posting once I enroll in a yoga class.

  • Weddings. They say June is a month for weddings (but our wedding coordinator told me that December is now the peak season for weddings) so I can't help but reminisce about our rocking vintage wedding and of course visit wedding blogs. With this, I got more and more excited to get the copy of our wedding video and photo album.

Nice huh? I guess I do have a lot of free time. I've been doing nothing since my husband and I have different schedules. I only get to see him for 3 hours daily so I really need to keep myself busy away from boredom and loneliness.

Yikes! Thirty!

I woke up and realized I'm thirty now. Wow, really? Coz, I feel like I'm still in my teens.

Oh well! Good thing, I'm happy with my life and I don't look my age anyway (that's according to new people I met). Since I wasn't able to file a leave for my birthday, on the day itself, we celebrated the typical style: lunch out, movies, shop, and visit my parent's home. My niccolo also gave me a present, my 2nd lomo camera: a diana mini! Yey! I couldn't be happier! Perfect timing for my post birthday trip to Batangas.

Due to a miscommunication between me and the reservations person, we almost didn't secure a spot in Acuatico Beach Resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas. We finalize our booking on May 14 for an overnight accommodation to one of their Alta Vista rooms (hotel type for 6,300/night), which is the only available room left. I've been hearing great feedback from my office mate and other girltalkers so I decided that since our Coron trip was busted and Vivere Azure is expensive, we might as well try this place. Besides, I've also seen pictures from my sister in law's FB account from their trip last year and I must say, the infinity pool is quite impressive.

It took us 3 hours from Alabang to Batangas to reach the resort. We weren't lost. Thanks to the direction/map my friend, Steph, lend me. The first thing my niccolo did was to go to our room and sleep while I went and explore the resort on my own. Talk about vacation! The view from inside and outside the resort is nice! Perfect for a relaxing day. Looking at some of our pics, one may get confuse on where exactly does the pool ends and the where the beach begins.

The infinity pool was really great but the rooms were too small, I must say. Our bed was almost touching the front door, it is that small. I should have book them earlier, I should have gotten the Casa de Playa room which they said is for honeymooners/couples.

If I was a bit disappointed with the rooms, the food, on the other hand, were delicious! Pricey but really yummy! The husband of course ordered buffet meal and seems like he was floating in heaven, while I only ordered a la carte meals since I'm not really in buffet these days (read: on a diet).

My new camera was busy the whole trip, I think I used that it more fequently than my digicam. That's why I have limited pictures to share. In my opinion, I think Acuatico is really better during lean season. You'll have more privacy and you'll really feel relax. It just happen that my birthday falls during summer so people are really crowding various resorts and beaches in the Philippines. I can't get beautiful pictures of the pool since kids and their toys where everywhere. We enjoyed watching them play but we also want to swim! So I asked my husband to just wake up early in the morning to enjoy the swimming at the pool. We had to take advantage of the quiet time while most of the resort guests were sleeping.

Hay... Everything good must come to an end. Husband was insisting that we extend our stay but I didn't bring enough moolah with me so we had to go back the next day. It was a great choice, as what he said. Acuatico has captured my husband's heart!

I was excited to vote yesterday since this will be the first automated elections in the Philippines. While in the office, I kept on checking Facebook on my mobile for my friends' reaction or just anything about the election. Their status worried me because I don't want to wait for 3 hours in the sun waiting for my turn to vote. So I was expecting the worst when I went home after lunch in Las Pinas to vote. I felt relieved when I was able to finish voting in less than 15 minutes!

It was a different story in Muntinlupa, where I accompanied my husband to vote as well. The people in charge were sooo disorganized! Although the queue is short, the volunteers, poll watchers, etc, didn't have a clue where the line begins or what's the next step. Anyway, he might have finished everything after more than 30 minutes. Still pretty fast compare to others' 3 hours.

Today, as I read newspapers and watch the news, I felt sooo disappointed. I didn't vote for Noynoy Aquino, but I guess I'm half expecting that he'll turn out to be number one. But Erap in the number two spot?! C'mon! A convicted plunderer? What is wrong with us Filipinos? Are my countrymen really that stupid? Or are they just blinded by Erap's charm. Oh well, atleast Noy Noy is winning.

Day Trip To Corregidor

I've been dying to go out to a beach this summer. I feel so pathetic since most of my friends were able to go on swimming already - either swimming pools or breathtaking beaches. Hay... Inggit mode again. So when some of my office mates asked me if i would want to go to a Corregidor day tour, I immediately said yes without battling an eyelash. I know it's not a beach destination but hey, any destination is still a destination. Even if it's just a day tour. Yes, I was that desperate!

Anyway, what really bothered me is the ghost stories I've been hearing from people who visited the place. In other swords, I don't like scaring myself. I don't want to feel ghost all around me (in my experience, if I want to, I can just go the the nearest hospital.) What psyched me up is the opportunity for a lomo shoot in this island. And of course to learn about the history. Hehehe!

Since my husband won't be able to join, I asked my good friend Lynette (the maid of honor at my wedding) since I know she's been dying to go on a tour as well. My first impression with Corregidor is that it's soooo hot!!! Then I've experienced its eeriness... Oh yes, the ghost stories are true after all.

What's nice about this day tour is that I've learned a lot about Corregidor. Yeah, really! Did you know that the island of Corregidor is part of the municipality of Cavite? I've always thought it's in Bataan. Also, I was able to improve my lomographic skills. The burst of colors on my pictures are soo nice! You may view my blog on lomo at And best of all, it was cheap! I spent almost Php1600 for the day tour including the Malinta Tunnel light and sound show. One of these day, I'll go back to Corregidor. Perhaps with my kids and husband? =)

Summer Lovin'

Ever since I've seen the movie, 500 Days of Summer, I've been searching the Internet on Zooey Dechanel's style. I sooo love her character, Summer, and her vintage/retro look! This past few months, aside from my addiction to lomography, I've been getting myself vintage inspired clothes. So far, I've bought a few tops from Plains and Prints, Kashieca, and Bayo with a vintage detail on it. But I'm not satisfied, I want more!!

I've always been a fan of vintage, I actually had a 50's vintage themed wedding, but I wasn't sure if I could really pull off a vintage outfit. You see, my style is a bit preppy, and not girly, if I may add. But getting married and seeing that movie made me want to try new things. Too bad I can't wear short dresses/skirts right now and off my legs due to my skin condition (nummular eczema) but at least I want to try wearing more girly tops. Please message me if you guys happen to find vintage inspired clothes. Here are some of her outfits that I absolutely adore!

Long Lost Hobby

I was rummaging some of the stuff my mom moved to my room back in Las Pinas when I came across my old sketchpad. It was actually quite dusty and the pages have turned a bit yellowish, proof that I haven't been using it for a long time. Of course, it consists of drawings I did back in the 1990s, when I was still in highschool. Wow, saying that (or typing for this matter), feels like I'm telling a bedtime story to my grandchildren.

Anyway, as I turned the pages one by one, I can't help but smile and reminisce how I was back then. I was so full of life. Very determined. Confined to my very pampered world. Oblivious to the disappointments and heartaches that the future will bring. That is why it's called LIFE. Good thing I am happy and at peace now.
And once upon a time, I was at peace when there's a pencil or pen in my hand, drawing or writing. I know my sketches are not that great but I always enjoy the compliments from my cousin and best friend, the two people who I share this with. Let me now show you some of my drawings that I kept hidden for years.
My cousin's pic when he was 9 months...

My version of a nude sketch. I was my own model. huwahaha..

I was feeling religious at that time...
This was how I envisioned myself in college, staying at a dorm which never happened.

I don't really know what I was thinking then.

Flowers From The Guilty Husband To The Freaked Out Wife

I was feeling annoyed last friday since my Niccolo will be going to a team building for 2 days. Don't get me wrong, it's not because I can't come with them but because I don't want to sleep alone at night, specially on my rest day.

So I fell asleep friday night watching TV. I was suddenly awaken when I sense a presence of a male spirit in our room. I can sense that he was between his late teens to mid twenties, long hair, and was wearing a white shirt. He also had this mischievous grin like he's playing a joke. I initially thought that it was one of my husband's nephews using our computer, which is located near the foot of our bed, but I know it wasn't. I know a spirit when I sense one. I'm used to sensing spirits everywhere but this one freaked me out because he was directing his energy at me. I felt him stepping on our bed. I felt the mattress moved with every step he made. And I also felt him when he jumped from our bed and run towards our bathroom. That was scary! But I fell asleep again after an hour or so praying the rosary. Prayer is will always be the best defense.

The next day, I texted my husband about my experience. He's one of the few people who believes me, who know I'm not going crazy. Poor Niccolo. He was already feeling guilty for leaving me alone, much more when he learned my story. He sent me a bouquet of flowers that same morning. One of the things I love about him is he always make sure that he'll be able to make up for his shortcomings. Although it doesn't compensate the experience I had, somehow, that beautiful surprise made my day.

Hubby and Hobby

Almost 3 months into our marriage and I really miss our wedding preps. Sometimes I really wanted to buy myself a new wedding magazine or just check out the daily digest on my wedding-related yahoogroup. I've been hearing a lot from our soon to be married office mates about an upcoming bridal fair and I really wanted to attend again another one. Of course my husband is preppy much against to these all and wanted me to let go of the whole wedding stuff. Believe me, I do want to let go but I guess it was just too addicting!

That's why I decided to start a new hobby, Lomography. Nico was just all too supportive. Specially since this could take my attention off the wedding stuff. It's a really cool type of photography. It's kind of low tech really but that's what makes it interesting. The effects are dreamy! Anyway, since I'm just a beginner, don't expect to see perfect shots. These are just some of my favorites. I'm hoping that the next time, I'll be able to improve my shots.
