a little escape from reality

Sometimes life can be overwhelming, other times, life can be easier than saying 1-2-3 – but even so, every now and then we should take time to enjoy the world around us. And taking time to enjoy the world around me is exactly what I did one afternoon (along with my grandma and uncle).

expressivesole’s thought: I have a favorite photo from the bunch that I took, can you guess which one is my favorite? Well, it’s the grainy black and white photo. The picture is of an old man bowing his head down in front of the cross praying, just standing there and praying. Looking back at the picture, there’s just a sense of stillness.

Giants vs A’s

 Taken with OLYMPUS Pen EPL-1

Six months ago, my point and shoot camera had died and gone to the grave – it has been a sad six months, since I was unable to take pictures of every special moment that I have lived in those six months (well, I can use my phone camera, and I do, but it’s just the not the same). Well, I finally jumped the wagon and bought a new camera on May 15, 2012, a black OLYMPUS PEN EPL-1 named: “little baby”. The man friend and I decided to name our cameras “little baby” and “big papa” respectively because the PEN is smaller and our everyday camera while his Canon DSLR is bigger and our special occasion camera (he doesn’t like lugging it around often because of it’s weight).

The Giants vs A’s game is the first time I have been able to take the “little baby” out for some test shots, but I was too immersed in the game to have taken more than these two shots . Sadly the Giants lost, but hey, they won 2/3 games! It was a sold out game, can you tell by the pictures?

p.s All of us ended up being burned by the blazing sun, my shoulders had a “fever” for days! We all ended up peeling after six days, we’re reptiles!
