old friend, new black & white photos

Almost 2 months after our Paper Flight exhibit and I just had to share with you my friend Mykee’s photo contributions, these are black and white photos that she took around different spots in Los Angeles, California (with the paper plane of course). Mykee is one of the closest if not the closest friend that I have in our group and even if she left after 6th grade to migrate to the US, we’ve always kept in touch all these years. We’ve always gotten along and agreed on most things if not all, and we’ve been happily swimming against the flow ever since – from one crazy head to another huh! Thank God for her almost yearly visits since 2005? When she comes to visit I’m almost assured that we’ll have more crazy misadventures and I only regret that we didn’t get to spend much time together when she came this year because I’ve been busy with this ‘higher education’ that I’m currently taking but the exhibit itself was already a really great time spent together. So back to the photos, I’m really proud of these shots that she took because first, I love black and white photos and second, she used a Holga 35BC camera and god knows how fond I am of Lomography (which I will dedicate a separate blog soon for that little hobby of mine since I myself is a proud owner of a Holga 120CFN, Diana F+ and Fisheye 2) and shooting with film is much more challenging for obvious reasons. I am no photography expert or critic but the raw look of the photos is just so appealing – you couldn’t get more unedited than that!

It’s raddd to have a life partner-in-crime like Mykee, it’s true that only crazy people truly understand each other and I’m not afraid to go crazy especially with her! Cheers to more years together dearieee, can’t wait for your next visit.
