I went away a few days leading to Easter to a place called Baguio City. Five to nine hours by car away to the mountains, it's likely to be the coldest place in the Philippines temperature wise. They're known for their lush pine trees and green lands (well, whatever's left of it), crafty creations, fresh strawberries, retro cabin vibe and quiet lifestyle among other things. It was a lovely place to kick back, relax, and just be still. A real break off city life as we know it.

I used a film camera for this trip. I love not only the colours, but the whole "what you see is what you get" deal of using film. The excitement of seeing the pictures after only guessing how it could look is part of the fun as well. I am already missing this little serene getaway.
