The Screenshots of Life

My love for photography is growing day by day. Here to display the beautiful outcomes of a Minolta x-370 film camera and my new member to the family, Nikon D5300

BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

Tuesday morning,

My roommate and I decided to go on an adventure. A place we both have never been before. Yes, you guessed it by the name of this post, we went to BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. And let me tell you, it was breathtaking.

It was our first time stepping into a temple and attending a service. Every inch of that place was covered of an artwork that was out of this world. The presence inside was just peaceful and you could just feel how their faith filled the room.

Although we were not allowed to take pictures inside, it gave us a moment to take everything in and just really admire the beauty behind everything, from the wall carvings to the architectural work inside and outside of the building.

Being there really opened up my mind and reminded me to always be open. There is beauty and good in every part of the world. Our lives can become an endless cycle of eat, sleep, repeat kind of thing. Sometimes you just need to stop and do something spontaneous. Don’t be afraid to try something new or different.

Life is short ( yes another cliché quote) but I mean it is. There is so much that we have yet to discover. Its time to start checking off boxes from your bucket list. Go do you boo. And do it full of awesomeness.

The will is not free – it is a phenomenon bound by cause and effect – but there is something behind the will which is free.

Lost Files: St. Augustine Part 2

Hey guys! This is Jocelyne again with more lost files! St. Augustine is such a beautiful place to visit. If you are someone like me who loves exploring and traveling then St. Augustine is a definite must place to go. The weather on that day made everything look so vibrant and colorful. There are so many things to do and many places to see. St. Augustine is just perfect for quick little get away. Once again these were images shot with my Minolta film camera.

Till next time!

Lost Files: St. Augustine Part 1

I was recently cleaning out my desk drawers and I ran into some old film rolls. I had NO idea what kind of pictures were on them or how old they were. It is always exciting to see what these lost files contained! These photos were from a trip we took at St. Augustine. They were taken by a Minolta film camera using color film.

The “manny” ways to love by manny and gabby


You guuuyyysss!!!! I’m so happy to share with you my final assignment in my first digital photography class. I’m in love with these shots mainly because they are two of my closest friends and they are just too cute. ( am I right?! )

In this assignment, I wanted to show a scene that captured their true expression and not just an “act” of love. I was pleased that Emmanuel and Gabriela loved these as much as I did. Could this be the new couple of the year?

Dark Room productions

This semester I took an intro to photography class. We learned to shoot, develop, and print black and white film. I’ve learned so much in this class and had fun while doing so. Here are some of my favorite prints that I have done so far. All were taken with a Minotla-x370 film camera.

Welcome to Miami!

To start this off, Miami is hands-down one of the most gorgeous cities I have been too. Although my time was limited, I was able to capture a couple of shots with the one and only, Lola (aka my Minolta cam). The first set (1-4) displayed public art and (of course) beautiful Miami ladies. They were taken along the side of North Bay Village. The next image (5) was taken at a local fresh market where the fruits and vegetables were just beaming of juiciness and vibrant colors. Finally, we ended the day having dinner at Shuckers Waterfront Grill. The restaurant had a dock were I captured the beautiful sunset that was taking place (6-9). Film cam…. hats off.

There is a wedding in the family! 👰

Last Friday I received the news that my sister is getting married! We are all very happy for her and looking forward to the day. Just yesterday, we decided to do a quick session using my Minolta x-370 just for fun (I mean why not). Even though mother nature was trying to kick us out from the beautiful Lake Mayer, we were stubborn enough to capture a few pics just before the rain got us. Over all I absolutely love how they came out. The vintage filter that film cameras naturally give pictures is amazing. Here are a couple of pictures just to show you these silly love birds and how cool film cameras can be….of course 😉
