camera strap

ginseng

Things are a little hectic around here as we prepare for our trip to Hong Kong and Seoul. We are reading about these cities, packing provisions for power, and I have been getting my camera equipment ready.

I customized my camera strap by covering it with this polka-dotted fabric, and I looked to Karyn’s amazing tutorial for guidance!! I really look forward to taking photographs on this trip.

I had a hard time deciding on gifts for our relatives, but thank goodness for my mom. She said ginseng would be a great gift from Canada. Apparently, we grow really good ginseng here!

I am getting some really great tips for our trip (thank you)!! Particularly about Korea! I want to share with you some great resources on South Korea's current creative community.

We have so much to do before we go, but at the same time, it will feel like a lifetime away! I am so anxious to start this adventure!

  12. love the camera strap! i'm always put off by how boring most of the ones that are out there are. maybe i just need to revamp one to my liking...hmmm. :)

    also (totally off topic), what colour/brand of nail polish are you wearing? it's a fantastic shade of grey...

  18. i love that top picture so much - tiny little preparations. i just bought a wallpaper city guide for san francisco, even though i'd already left san francisco. sounds silly but i'll need it anyway since i'm moving there in a few months! i'm just kicking myself for not thinking of it before i went for the first time! i also came across an awesome moleskin with blank pages, maps, subway routes, etc specifically for san francisco. but that was on my last day there, too late! but of course i bought it for future reference as well :)

    good luck on all your preparations and even though it's a long way away, i can't wait to see your pictures from there :)

  24. That's exciting!
    I just went to HK in December and stocked up my supplies of 120 films and other photography supplies. They are way cheaper there. Email me if you want to know where I got the films.
