[PHOTODUMP] Film 101: Life In Grain

Earlier this year, I bought my first (not considering the family film cameras we had back in the days) film camera. I scored an Olympus Trip 35 for only Php 1, 500 ($29.27) from a vintage camera seller online.

Halloween Photodump: No Tricks, All Treats!

The time of the year to dress up and become your dream character has come!

I’m not sure with you, but I never had the chance to go trick or treating when I was a kid. I was only able to participate and experience halloween events during my college years. I’ve always had this longing to dress up as those characters I admired on television and movies including the nameless zombies and creepy entities who are famous every halloween.
