It’s been a long time since I made the last entry on this blog. I’ve been busy working and traveling but I’m still alive. 45 days of the trip to USA was wonderful and I came back with a whole bunch of photographs to share. I developed most of the film photos but haven’t found enough time to go through all the digital ones just yet. I will upload them on my flickr whenever I find time between work.
Today, I’ve decided to share one of my favorite photographs from the trip. The more I take photos, I find myself appreciating the process of taking photos more than the results. The reason I like this photo so much is that it reminds me of the beautiful day driving up the California Highway 1 along the Pacific coastline, running into this old lady who was painting the ocean sitting by the ocean, having such a pleasant conversation with her, and how wonderful it felt to frame, focus, and release the shutter to capture the beautiful moment I was enjoying. Taking this shot with a Hasselblad was a bonus as it’s such a great camera with an excellent experience of photo taking process.
