How do you spend the last week with a friend who’s off to another country, and may or may not come back? Do photo challenges, of course. One of the reasons we’re doing the challenge was to test out Marj’s new camera. The testing-out-Marj’s-camera didn’t work out quite as planned since it ran out of juice before we got to it. We still went on with the challenge anyway, but we used my trusty point and shoot which is horrible in low light, yes, but neither of us are admittedly all that talented anyway, even with a kick-ass camera.
The original challenge was to take ten photos throughout a regular day to find something great in the mundane, etc etc. We modified that (to fit our needs, mood, and schedule) to take ten photos at night at Salcedo park and the surrounding areas.
Click to zoom. Or don’t. It all looks better as thumbnails. 😛
Final pic results notwithstanding, it was fun just to spend a chill night out in a park. Feels pretty good not thinking about the more serious aspects of life in our 20s, just wondering just how many kittens a certain pregnant cat is carrying (its belly was huge!). I’m not sure if I’ll get better at taking photos, but I do want to improve for the sake of my travels. And also this blog.
We also learned that Marj’s talent lies in captioning pics and mine is in… well, maybe post-processing.
So yeah, these photos are even crappier in their original form.
