The Creative



Everything we are surrounded by was first a dream in someone's head. A fantastic adventure experienced in the mind.




The relationship we have to ourselves should be creative. We should think of everything we do as an act of creativity.




Be your own work of art. Invent yourself.




The creative are sensitive to the work and what it requires. They let the project evolve naturally.

Words by Rod Judkins From His Book, Change Your Mind

If there's two things that I love to indulge in (other than food that is), it would be art and photography. The past two months were brimming with art festivities, and I couldn't be any happier that I had the privilege to attend and be a part of some of it. During those countless art fairs, bazaars and exhibits that I went to, I had the pleasure of lugging around my newly acquired film camera with me.

These photos were taken using a Minolta X-700, which I purchased on a whim about a couple of months ago after hearing positive reviews about it and actually scoring a decent bargain off of eBay. It was in A++ condition and even came with two lenses - a zoom and a prime lens! (See what I mean?) Needless to say, I'm pleased with the outcome despite the fact that I'm still tinkering and getting used to Minolta's built.

Note that this set is my first roll using this type of camera and are supposedly considered as test shots. Albeit, it momentarily slipped my mind when I was busy (and happily) snapping away at anything and everything I see that feels worth the frame.

The quality of the imagination is to flow and not to freeze.
