Last month I went to Hawaii on a two-week vacation/business trip and decided to bring along my Yashica Mat-124G, a Twin Lens Reflex (TLR) medium format camera. I had only shot two rolls of film with this camera prior to the trip, so I knew the basics of it but didn’t have a lot of experience with it. I wasn’t surprised when some of the photos didn’t come out that great… but I was happy to see some turned out quite nicely.Read more →

NYC 4th of July Fireworks
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!
This year, Robert and I felt too lazy to go to the fireworks by the Hudson River, so instead we went up to our building’s rooftop and watched the show from there. It wasn’t the best view you can get, but it was better than we expected –and it only took us two minutes to get back home!Read more →
Menorca, a Paradise in the Mediterranean
About five weeks ago, Robert and I went on our late honeymoon to Menorca (also spelled Minorca), Spain, and it was the best vacation we’ve ever had so far.
Menorca is a relatively small island (695.7 km2/268.61 sq mi) but it has a lot to offer: stunning virgin beaches, breathtaking cliffs, beautiful little towns, prehistoric monuments, and excellent food. There’s so much to see that we didn’t have time to visit everything we would have liked. It’s alright though, I’m pretty sure we’ll go back someday.Read more →
A Day at the Bronx Zoo
About a month ago my family came to visit, and just like every time they come, it was fun to be a tourist for a few days and see places I wouldn’t normally go.
On one of the days during their stay, I took them to the Bronx Zoo. It was a weekday and most attractions were closed for the season, so the zoo was very quiet and not busy at all. It was nice to be able to walk around feeling like we were the only visitors.Read more →
