Throwback Photos

Facebook showed me some really nice memories yesterday. πŸ™‚ My old shots. They were so inspiring, I wanted to go out with my camera and go shoot different things again. πŸ€—

Unfortunately, I can’t just go out and do that. This is Saudi Arabia. πŸ˜‰

Here are some of the photos from 2010 onwards (I think). I used my phone’s camera, nikon d3000, and olympus for most of the shots.

This photo above is a tower or part of a castle my husband and I visited in Wurzburg, Germany.

This is a lamp post in Luisita, Tarlac. It is located in a nice park where families can have picnic on the grass. Well, it used to. Now, establishments have surrounded the place and it’s slowly turning out to be a place that is not appropriate for afternoon family fun. I remember the sight of kids carrying balloons while moms and dads lie on the ground just sharing stories. I fell in love with that park the moment I saw it.

This above is part of the eco-tourism trail of Tarlac. Thisis the way going to the Monasterio de Tarlac, where you will see a statue of Jesus, same as that in Rio de Janiero. Would you believe that I took this shot while riding a motorcycle?πŸ€£πŸ˜„ My husband was driving and I just couldn’t let the moment pass. The view was so amazing, I new it would take years before I could do see it again. πŸ™‚

This, I believe was in a resort in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The catch. I just had to take that shot. πŸ™…

Tricky shot. I love capturing moments like this one.

I was playing with my nikon in our old house. I was alone and had to take random objects as subjects for my test shots. πŸ˜„

Red Sea outing. This part has less trash. It’s sad that people throw their trash or leave their trash here. It’s just bad. Who will clean that? The fish? πŸ€”

I remember this shot above. I got so excited with my new camera that I asked my husband to drive me to the sea to take a picture of the sunset.

One of our trips from Yanbu, Saudi Arabia back to Jeddah. Another sunset. Obviously, I did not know how to set the camera right…but it looked so good. Haha

Well, that was a good exercise to see if I can still remember things. One reason why I blog is because I easily forget(some) things, putting them here with pictures make me smile as I say “Oh, that happened…” Sometimes, in an embarassing mode. 😊

How about you? What event or photos has Facebook reminded you lately? πŸ€—

  1. Your photos are lovely! I was just saying to a friend last night that I miss using my DSLR. I mean, phone cameras seem to have ruined the joy of using DSLR. I admit I ditched my big camera for phone camera simply because the latter is almost weightless. But then, I do wanted to use DSLR again.

    1. True! We go for comfort, but when I compare the photos, there’s still a huge difference between dslr and phone cam that just wants you to go back to dslr. I must admit that for portability and easy acess, I really use my phone’s camera. πŸ˜‚

  2. Hi Gillian, I hope you are well. Yep just been back from hibernating to blogging World. The past months were so busy and I only had the time to reply to all fellow bloggers who remembered me and thank you for visiting my site. FB also reminded me of so many things… be it sad or happiness… some I have to save to my current phone to remind me of the good old times!

    1. Thank you. I’m using it now to take picturee of the things I create and sell like cake and accesories. In yhe future, I’m planning to use it in a business. πŸ™‚

  3. Nice pictures! I love taking photos as well although I don’t really have a great camera right now. I just use my phone camera, which takes pretty decent photos for everyday use. I’ve actually dreamed of being a professional photographer. Who knows? Maybe someday. πŸ™‚

  4. Awww you take good pictures, sis! Ganda din ng timing mo and your photographs look alive. That tidbit about the Red Sea makes me sad though. 😦

    1. Thanks. About the Red Sea, oo nga e. I honestly don’t want what happened to Roxas blvd to happen here. I remember that area as a child. It was still clean, but people dumped trashes. Hehe sayang. πŸ™‚

  5. Facebook lately also gave me some beautiful memories. Some I would like to share but then decided to keep to myself. Not because they arent worth sharing but because the memories are too precious I would want to just enjoy them first. Nice photos youve got there.

  6. I envy talaga people who take good photos. Yours are really good, ang galing πŸ™‚ I wonder though if there’s a big difference sa mga shots using a DSLR camera and a good phone camera. Would really love to experiment pero no budget for a DLSR cam yet πŸ™‚

    1. When I was starting, I just had my camera phone and it took really good shots. Nakita ko din minsan, sa perspective din ng kumukuha. πŸ™‚ If you try to look at the view with fresh eyes (always), you try to see the beauty or what is beautiful in the scene and take that angle. πŸ˜‰
