taking pictures to make it last longer.

walking The beat goes on. Ferry Building ... dark? sexy legs.

I've always liked taking photos... the first camera I ever got was a Kodak. I don't really remember what the model or make of it was, but let's just say it resembled what might have been considered a disposable camera of today. It was red, and it looked a lot like a Holga. My aunt and uncle gave it to me for my birthday, and I pretty much used it up in an hour. And it was the best.

Looking back on it now, I realize that photography is one of the hobbies that I have kept going ever since. It's just one of those things I've grown accustomed to. The ironic thing about me liking photography is that I hate getting my own photo taken. I liken it to when movie stars say they never watch their own movies: it's just something they never want to see. I love to do black and white, and mainly because of the simplicity. I also like film photography, so of course my pockets feel a little lighter after getting them developed at Photoworks in The City (it's only because I don't have access to a darkroom like I did in the past).

Anyway, here's a bit of what I've been able to do lately.
