I’m back

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.

Anyway, here’s the photograph for you to view and I hope you would enjoy.

John was kind enough to let me use his Hasselblad while he was visiting Korea. I finally managed to scan my very first roll with Hasselblad yesterday. The entire experience of holding Hasselblad, looking through the amazingly beautiful view finder, and hearing the loud but complete sound when the shutter is pressed is something else. Now I see the result of it, I can’t wait to get one for myself someday.

looking out.

sunny afternoon.
