WEEK FIVE: ELLE + ELMO
Although my favorite Sesame Street characters are Bert and Ernie, Elmo is in the top five! I couldn’t resist taking a picture with this cute red furball!
This is an instax taken by Feifei who calls me Puipui, which basically just means that we’re both FAT! Feifei is one of the people I have become closer to this past year, and with seeing each other almost everyday I feel so happy having her in my life. We both like to eat and we’re so comfortable that sometimes we shed our ladylike image and become total barbarians ( I kid!) when it comes to food. Yes, we bond over food a lot!
Here’s to Feifei! My eating-in-an-unglam way partner!
This is actually first of four instax pictures where I noticed that my photo-taking skills were improving and I had enough presence of mind to change the settings before pressing the button. I know it may seem a basic skill to many, but you guys don’t know how many pieces of film I wasted just because I got the settings all wrong! Such painful and expensive mistakes to commit but let’s just chalk it all up to experience shall we?
I love Bougainvilleas because it was the most abundant flower (aside from the hibiscus) that can be seen in my neighborhood. It brings me wonderful memories. I like how the leaves fool you into thinking they are the real flowers, when I was a kid it really fascinated me.
I like this shot a lot even if I had to assume a very awkward position just to frame things. You probably can’t tell but I love having the sky in my shots, I can wax philosophical about this but right now I’m too tired … HA!
Have a great day folks!
One of Yoshitomo Nara’s paintings that were featured during the Trans-Cool Tokyo Exhibit during the early part of this year. There’s something about his sassy looking girls that I’m drawn too. This is one of the first instax pictures I have taken.
I’m kinda bending my own rules here if you noticed. I realize that there are weeks where I can take a lot of interesting instax pictures and there are weeks that nothing exciting comes up. But I do promise that from now on, I will post an instax photo weekly.
Hope everyone’s having a great day!
