Looking Back

Saturday, February 24, 2018


I’ve always wanted to have a film camera of my own since I started falling in love with random photographs.

We used to have three different film cameras at home because my dad loved taking random photos with them. He was a memory hoarder of some sort, but I don’t know what happened when one day, he just let those cameras get dusted in the corner of our old cabinet. And I, being playful as a kid, secretly took them out there and played with them. Yep, secretly; afraid that my dad would get angry at me if he finds out. I played with them until they couldn’t serve their purpose anymore. And of course, I was not able to keep the truth from my dad. As expected, he got frustrated about it, and there was me, puzzled and wondering why he got disgruntled just like that.

But now, I understand why.

When my dad died, he left his digi cam with us and I’ve been keeping it in my memory box ever since. I kept it right away in there. I never used it. Memories of my dad breaks my heart, and it breaks me even more whenever I see things he used to love in front of my eyes. I don’t know if it’s still working, but until then, let’s just keep it in there.

Anyway, I just wanted to share those two photos above which I’ve taken last January with one of my current favorite apps, but idk why I ended up blabbing too much about something that has nothing to do with the photos. Lol.

I oh-so-wanted to buy a camera that I’ve always been eyeing for and guess, I now have the means to buy it, but talking about managing my finances, I don’t think it’s necessary just yet. So yeah, let whatever I have for now save the day. Let’s make use of what we have, they say. Well… The only issue I have with this app is that its date stamp, most of the time, does not follow the orientation of the photo. But nevertheless it still serves me right.

And yep, here’s me again, missing my dad. Big time.
