Le Pinay in Dubai… :)

Welcome to my world! My happiness.. my favorite things… my travels… my journey… My life. :) I’m a rookie housewife in Dubai- trying to be a domestic goddess! “JOIE DE VIVRE” – (FRENCH for joie, “joy”; de, “of”; vivre, “living”; “THE JOY OF LIVING”) is a term sometimes imported into English to express a cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit. Joie de vivre, as one scholar has written, can be a: JOY OF CONVERSATION, JOY OF EATING, JOY OF ANYTHING ONE MIGHT DO…

Attempts at Lomography October 22, 2008

I’m a newbie and I know I still have a lot to learn…

Just wanted to share some of my first shots from my Holga 135 and Fisheye2 cams. I took these using expired color films (learned it from one of the online forums)… but heck, I misunderstood… according to Jed (my lomo guru *wink*), I should have used expired SLIDE films (box says “chrome” instead of “color”). I can also have it developed using C-41 chemicals instead of the usual E-6… voila.. Cross Processing!   hmmm.. I’ll try that in my next lomo sessions. 😉

By the way, I definitely need a flash for my Holga.. which one can you suggest, Colorsplash Flash? Ringflash? and what’s this Holga Filter set? 

Hope I can shoot better pics in our Aussie trip next month 🙂 Would love to hear more tips. Thanks!

Ciao! 🙂

    TEENJ…YO! heeehee. it’s easy to set up paypal. it will ask for a creditcard number. if you don’t want to use that, set up a debit account. they accept debit card as long as there’s visa master…and i don’t know what else logo. but it’s easy. then people can pay you in paypal, it can hold your money for you like a purse. you can apply a paypal debit card so you can use the money right away or initiate the transfer to your savings/debit account that’s registered with it. when it comes to monetizing the blog, try http://www.smorty.com, http://www.blogsvertise.com, http://www.payperpost.com…so far, sila yung tried ko na nagbabayad mabilis!

  3. Hello, Im doing a report about lomografy and I was wondering if I could use your picture from Eiffel Tower. Could you send me an e-mail saying yes or no? Use redacao@contemporaneamagazine.com.br
