Weekend photography.

well, I have been enjoying nature photography for about a month now. so I like taking pictures of flowers, grass, clouds, sky, and stuff like that. and last weekend I went to a waterfall here in Palopo with some of my friends. on the way to the falls, I found these insects and took some pictures of them. I am no pro in photography, I took more than five times to finally get the best shot. and here are some of my (well, what I think) best shots.insects 1

Weekend is here, baby!

yeah! weekend is here!

alright, I just wanna take a break from school stuff for a little while. Experiencing the first year of teaching is definitely overwhelming, but I really am enjoying the bitter sweet of it.

well, school is over for this week and I already have dozens of plans to do. wohooo.

Im gonna put on my almost-worn-out yet comfy pair of converse shoes, grab my camera, and call on a becak for a city tour. hahaha.

so, what about you?

hope you guys have a great weekend! yeaaaah!

Saturday morning in Latuppa

Latuppa 2 the weather was perfect. clear sky and cool air. Latuppa 4 I enjoyed the fresh water. pure nature. just calm.sky I lied down under a tree, took a picture of the blueness of the sky and the greenness of the leaves of the tree. such a perfect way of spending a Saturday morning. getting away from the busyness of life for a little while. enjoying nature. soothing the mind.

hope you people have a great weekend! 🙂

warm regards from the southern part of Sulawesi, Indonesia!
