Having to part with Jesse for my entire stay in Manila was a difficult fact I had to accept. Bringing an SLR considering the circumstances was not at all practical, yet I was still bummed about it, of course, because if I had a material best friend, it would definitely be my old sport Jesse – and ironically, for the two of the biggest adventures of my life that involved being in Manila (THIS was of course Adventure #1, and the Licensure Exam is Adventure #2) my trusted camera wasn’t/won’t be with me. However I’d like to think it’s fate’s way of telling me that my biggest adventures don’t need to be documented with pictures, because I can document them with my mind, and can use my words to create my own pictures and tell my own stories. ♡
Anyway, before I packed up Jesse for storage I played around a bit with it along with my two other cameras – Mary Sue of course, and the new cam I mentioned before but never really formally introduced here – the Instax Mini 8 I got from our Hong Kong trip! :) All the playing around resulted to what is possibly my favorite photo on Instagram so far.
(Unsurprisingly) I got a lot of fail shots – I was sorta testing how far Jesse’s kit lens manual focus could go. But because I’m weird I ended up liking some of them :))
