Japanese Tea Garden in San Franciso

As you visit the Japanese Tea Garden, you’ll enjoy gorgeous landscapes and scenery complete with kaleidoscopic floral arrangements, waterfalls and koi ponds.  You will also see a rich display of Japanese culture by prominent structures such as the pagoda, a drum bridge and a tea house. What you probably won’t be able to see, however, is its rich history of the past – a past that many would rather forget. Most of the structures that you’ll see, such as the Mount Fuji landscapes, the pagoda, the Zen Garden, among others were actually additions made from 1960’s through 1980’s. The original gates, which are rich in history and culture, were restored in the 1980’s.

Sprocket rocket #2

More panoramic shots from my sprocket rocket camera in Mission Bay. For this roll I only got six great shots. 😦 Someday, somehow I will get to perfect the shots.

Shooting my first film with the sprocket rocket looked so easy breezy but I only got two successful shot here. Here’s why: 1. I always failed to check the right settings of the camera. I have found out that I shot most of the film on a B-mode (long exposure); which I think was accidentally moved while the camera was in my bag. 2.  And aperture was set to cloudy too. So this is how I only got two great landscape panorama from my first roll. Better luck next time. 😀 How is everyone btw? Hope you all are having a great weekend!

official silly day

Happy 1st day of April everyone! Yes, how can it be April already? It’s the only day where being silly is officially recognized. But be gentle with the people you’re going to play prank today 🙂 Sometimes you need to do crazy things to get out of your crazy mood… And also, sometimes you need to just sit still until it passes. 🙂
