the Bangui Windmills, Ilocos Norte

My family and I recently took a roadtrip up north to Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte. The route was from our house in Bataan, then Tarlac, Pangasinan, La Union, and finally Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte. Whew. For the trip I brought my two cameras, the Fat Lens and the Golden Half, and I used Lucky 200 for both. The results below show just how much I still have to learn about these two cameras. The Golden Half photos turned out moodier than I thought they would, simply because we arrived at Vigan before the sun was up in full blast. The Fat Lens photos turned out better than I expected, though. Lots of bright blue skies, vignettes, and wide angle goodness.

The Golden Half photos were all taken in Vigan, while the Fat Lens photos were all taken all around Ilocos Norte.

That's Daddy's signature "wacky" pose

I love how in the 2nd photo, Mikee looks like she's flying and our nephew's trying to catch her

That's Daddy's "Hey, take a photo of me here" pose

Paoay Church - I think this is the most beautiful church I've seen up close
Accidental light leaks from when I accidentally opened my camera thinking I'd fully rewound it, but still lovely, right?
