Holga Series: If You Steal My Sunshine

So this is it, the last set from my Holga series. If you haven’t seen the first two, you can check them out here and here.

When I saw this dress from an online shop called Runway Dreams on Facebook, I knew this was the perfect dress for a beach date. The color looks fun and the cut is very feminine. It looked really amazing whenever the wind came. We we were able to capture it on video here.

The sun was beginning to set when we took these. I feel a mixture of admiration and sadness whenever the sun sets. It’s one of the most beautiful things on earth, but at the same time it signals the end of the day. We become limited by the darkness (heck, we couldn’t even see the shore properly). But then again, it assures us that light will always follow.

I got tan lines, yo! See that? πŸ™‚ I guess it’s farewell for now, my dear ocean. Chad and I will be back soon.

Now I got my post title from this 1999 song by Len. I know it’s not the most wholesome song (although it doesn’t sound like it), but it’s trippy and I looove it. I hope you do, too!

Holga Series: Sand in My Shoes

Hi! These are just some photos from the second set that was shot with a Holga lens. I am still amazed how the lens captured the light whenever I look at these photos. You may not see my face very clearly, but I do not want it to be the focus this time. I’m pretty sure you’re already annoyed seeing my face anyway, hoho.

If you are a frequent visitor of my blog, you’d remember this dress. It’s not a crime to wear things multiple times, you know. I’m not born with a silver spoon in my mouth, so why pretend having endless supply of clothes? Just saying. Besides, this is one of my favorite dresses but instead of heels, I opted to pair it with my trusty (and dirty) Vans sneakers, because obviously I cannot walk on the beach wearing 5-inch stilettos.

Now isn’t that just marvelous. I seldom see that kind of light and sky in the city. I think that’s the whole point of travelling and visiting places–to appreciate the work of nature.

I was so happy to finally see the ocean that I sat on the shore like a child and started filling my shoes with sand. Lol

Beach Bunny Blog Giveaway (CLOSED)

Hello! As you know, I and ze boyfriend made a video titled Beach Bunny, which I shared a few days ago. We love it so much that we want everyone to see it, not only because we made it but also because we believe beautiful photographs and videos need not always be captured in HD. In this day and age, everything is in HD that we sometimes fail to appreciate the beauty of the not-so-new. Sometimes, pictures and films look more real and genuine when they’re a bit gritty and grainy IMO.

I honestly think this video of ours will lose its appeal if we didn’t use a Holga lens, a lens that yields a vignette:

Holga Series: Mind Cruisin’

It’s been a year since I last saw the ocean so when Chad told me we’re going to La Union, I agreed without hesitation. I haven’t been to La Union but I do know it’s a famous surf spot, and I understand why. It’s clean and the waves as well as the locals are very pleasant. I initially wanted to try surfing again, like I did last year, but we didn’t get to bring nor rent a longboard so I learned skimboarding instead.

This is me smiling after bruising my knee and thigh, getting a swollen ankle, and landing on my butt after sliding countless times. I have low pain tolerance, but when it comes to learning how to surf and skim, I’m willing to endure a few injuries. Those injuries pale in comparison to that certain high you get after successfully riding the board, that feeling of being stoked. I’m not really an excitable person, but beach and water activities (or even the lack thereof) often delight me.

And no, I did not wear these while learning how to skimboard. That would be difficult, not to mention ridiculous. I would topple down even before I get to the board. Lol. This is 1 of the 3 looks I wore in the Beach Bunny video Chad and I made. Please watch if you haven’t. πŸ™‚
