There's a good reason for the lack of posts in my blog. We flew to Manila to spend time with our parents and to reconnect with old friends. We also made a trip to Batanes, a cluster of islands located in the northern most part of the Philippines. Being remote and unplugged in the province was a welcome change for us. We marveled at the landscape and savoured local vegetable dishes prepared with minimal ingredients. I'll be sharing some images from this trip as soon as I finish a pass of all my digital files into Lightroom and when I get my film back from the lab.
