@persokong remember 200 years ago when we’d stay up all night on AIM and play SIMS where we’d build a room with no doors or windows and put 10+ kids in there just to see what would happen???
Ahhhh…. Child endangerment.
Among my usual hiking friends I’m usually the one sporting a camera besides the camera on the phone. However it was a very pleasant experience hiking with my friend Jeremy for he brings his digital SLR camera which i might add is an expensive piece of equipment to bring out into nature I feel we do subconsciously learn from each other’s styles of photography. Honestly as there are many things I can say about Jeremy’s photography I do enjoy the time he takes with each of his shots, almost like he is using a film camera. You can take multiple shots with digital but he is diligent with his work.
So I accidentally reeled my film to hard and it snapped from the cartridge cylinder but I was not certain. So I attempted to cover my camera with my jacket and tried to peek inside my camera if the film rolled in or not. To my dismay I accidentally let some light on the film. However after it got developed the shot came out like this which was a pleasant surprise. It kind of gives the spiritual feeling from within the Chapel.
It was my first time in Sedona, actually my first time visiting the state of Arizona. The sun was waning down but I was able to quickly grab a couple of shots with my camera before the sun fully set. You can tell how I was quickly trying to see where to get a good shot at the same time the sun was setting pretty quickly. I combined two of my shots into one, it may have been just 10 minutes apart each shot.
Its an interesting friendship with Beverly for we have been friends since college and see each other very sparingly now a days. However despite that when we do see each other we just pick up where we left off.
I believe this was the first time I took to the trails offered in the city of San Francisco. I did see pictures online of this basin like area being filled with water and I was glad it was all exposed. Because exposed ruins are just an invite to explore.
After a 3.5 hour bus ride we made it to the boat that would take us through Ha long Bay. The name Ha Long means descending dragon, which is what the rocks looked like, a dragon coming in and out of the ocean.
They said it was called surprising cave which was exactly my reaction to it. I have been through caves before and I did not expect the illumination of lights within this one. I really wish my hands were not as shaky because I did loose a number a pictures to blur but a couple of pictures survived.
It was a nice change of pace from my usual Southern Californian hikes. The weather was quite nice this time of year, I actually over-packed warm clothes for the weekend because I thought it would be freezing during the day.
