The Justine Clan.

 Picking up shells at the beach

Mom joined in the fun

Went in to the water just to find shells

Dad with his serious expression

I present to you my family, The Justine. These photos were taken way back in the month of May. Went back to my dad's hometown, Kuala Penyu to celebrate 'Kaamatan' also known as Harvest Festival. Dad decided to bring us to Sawangan Beach a few days later, grandma was with us too but she's camera shy so didn't have the chance to take her portrait. The weather was fine, a little bit windy but it didn't rain. My little brother and youngest sister behaved that day, no shouting and fighting with each other like they always do so my parents could have their tranquility for a little while. The kids were playing and picking up shells, the grownups chit chat under a tree nearby, and I was busy taking pictures of the sceneries. Too bad my younger sister wasn't there with us, she actually went back to Labuan on exactly the same to continue her study. Matriculation's school break sucks, not long enough for us to spend quality family time together.

Edited the photos in B&W to give a pinch of dramatic effect.

Overall, the day was fun. It was nice to be at the beach once in a while.

Diana and I.

It's been awhile since my last post and I'm sorry for not updating earlier and often cos I've been uninspired at all, that happen to me sometimes . But today I'm going to blog about the new addition to my family of camera. Welcome Diana! Such a lovely name for an awesome, small and plastic camera! It's actually a lomo camera and it uses 35mm film strip. Bought it last week when a friend of mine told me that her friend will open a booth at Megalong's Flea market and she'll be selling Mini Diana for only RM150. RM150 for a lomo cam?? I thought to myself that's definitely a catch and worth it! In my family, not only me who likes to take picture but my younger sister as well. Marsha is interested in photography too but her kind of approach is more laid back, go with the flow, very relax cos that's really who she is and Lomography suits her the best. She loves Lomography, so I decided to buy it for her, I mean HELP her. She'll pay me back! hahaha! 

The pictures that the mini royal could produce are outstanding by just looking at the pictures on the book that came with the camera. You guys can check out some of the pictures here. This little baby can take 2 sizes of frame, 24x24 is the square format and 24x17 is the half format. That's exactly one of the features that I really love about this mini camera!

Collaboration part 2.

A nice rest.

Too cute.

Having to know Joel who shares the same interest as mine is definitely a good thing cos we can learn a few new things, tricks and skills from each other. Similar from the previous collaboration, I was the one who took the pictures and Joel edited them. 
You can check out his blog and his pictures are amazing.
