Walking and The Art Of It

When does your walking become an art? Art? It’s in the eye of the beholder. And in the mind of the creator… We can all find deep hidden meaning, or a forceful visual impact in the simplest things… Noticing, and maybe capturing, these moments can give a rich extra dimension to our walking experience… Often, we notice what others do not. Photos are of Torrey Pines Natural Reserve in San Diego when we hiked the Beach Trail.

The Flower Fields

Carlsbad Flower Fields is one of the spring picnic spots if you live in SoCal. The flower field is around 50 acres and has a burst of colorful flowers to watch. If you love flowers (like I do) then you must go and see this even for once in your lifetime The Flower Fields was truly a fun experience. It’s not something that lasts all day, but it’s a great way to kill a few hours… Beautiful flowers, the tractor is cute, and there is a beautiful photo opportunity at the top of the hill with the ocean in the background. There was a sweet pea maze when we went which was also pretty cute and fun. You’ll have a great time actually if you don’t take with you many great expectations. Just a fun, relaxing pretty day. This is a good activity for the entire family and those who just enjoy being outside with natural beauty and outside of the tulip fields in Holland, this was one of the best open air flower fields I’ve …

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. I know it takes a lot of patience and practice. 🙂 Camera: Lomography Sprocket Rocket Film: Lomography CN 400 35mm Processing: Color Negative C41 (panorama with holes)

Sprocket rocket #1

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!

Diana mini #3

Hello everyone! How can it be July already? I am not even done posting my San Diego trip photos. 😦 I know I have to post more than I am posting these past few, but you know… life always happens as I’ve said before. The photos above were shot at Torrey Pines State Beach, when we stopped for an hour to breathe and just be. And these were from the La Jolla Cove, which I was not a big fan of. The place smells so bad that you have to hold your breath to take in the view. It smells like the wild life what with the pungent odor of the seals, birds and the excrement that are stinking up the sandstone cliffs. It was just too strong for me and maybe to everyone else. But if you walk as far as from the smelly source, you will get to enjoy the sea breeze, the waves and just be. This would be all for now. See you again soon. And I hope you guys are …
