Summer is Over and So Are We // Bali Film Roll 2013

heyooo! it's been ages since my last blog post (which wasn't even half decent, just a random one with my thoughts and confusion) - i'm so sorry, i've been so busy and even now i am, just that i've chosen to write this post instead of doing my holiday homework as a satisfying form of procrastination.

anyway, i thought i would share my promised bali photos as i got them developed a while ago! i'm rather "meh" about the results though, because they were all a little dark. i think it's time i invest in a  more decent film camera or at least a flash, it's quite a pain compromising good photos just because those moments happened to be indoors!

☼ enjoy  ☼

we did lots of really fun stuff (the usual annual things) but what was different this time was my chance to go scuba diving! i was really excited for this - i've never been before, but oh goodness, i got really sea sick and almost vomitted on the way back to shore. one thing that really struck me this trip was the fact that the ocean is just such a large gargantuan mass of water, and it's pretty scary. to be stuck in the waves, or lost in the middle of the sea... that just terrifies me. the waves are so powerful and they really really show just how mighty nature can be. (i really do hope i'm not establishing a kind of ocean phobia for myself right now)

well, hope you enjoyed having a little glimpse of my trip about two months back (boy, time does pass too fast).
also, a great big fat thank you to S. of the blog "as far as the eye can see" for nominating my blog for the liebster award - i am really so honoured! such a lovely surprise to see when i finally logged onto my account after a month of stagnancy. i did a post on this previously, so if you'd like to take a look at that, it's here.

have a great weekend!
(now back to homework)

  1. I love that first picture of the little man hanging off of the clock. I'd love having that in my house. These pictures are gorgeous. I sort of like how dark they are. They feel lived in and loved. :)

    1. So do I - the clock really caught my eye as I was walking down the small Balinese city roads! Thank you! I guess that's what's so wonderful about film: it's unexpectedness :-)

  2. i think your photos really show what you feel about the ocean and how frighteningly endless it is.
