A Voluntary Farewell

Thursday, December 31, 2009

I don't think that I have ever been more willing to bid farewell to a year then this one. 2009 was very significant in a multitude of ways but it brought me a lot of hurt and emotions that I don't want to come into contact with again. This post is not a melancholy tribute to the year that in many levels scarred different platforms of my life, on the contrary. It is a beautiful beginning both for me and my blog. It's too bad that I will be celebrating tonight with a yucky cold. Not the best way to start off the new year but I am very excited nonetheless.
I sincerely wish everybody a beautiful new year. May all your ambitions be projected and may all your goals be fulfilled. Happy New Year!

To finish off the year I am proud to complete the last of the December Photo Series.
A very special person in my life has purchased a a film camera for me (a Canon ae-1) which is on its way in the post as I type this. Assuming the camera works, I will be able to share with you a lot more of my work in film. Also, I have started an online portfolio which you can view here.
Until then, here is December Photo Series pt. 3:

Hi there... these are awesome portraits. And the black and white is perfect. Are they shot in film? I believe so because the b/w is film-like... just perfect.

Happy New Year! Hope to see more of your works.

Love the black and white. I actually plan on doing a black and white series centered on my male friend. It will be the first time I work with a guy model hahah. I hope they turn out as well as your pictures did!
