My Adventure Partner (a photo essay)

This is an entry to Wanderlass Adventure Partner Contest

If I had to think of an actual physical adventure partner (as opposed to research skills and a Zen attitude), it would have to be my faithful Canon Powershot A80 camera.

Me and my trusty camera (2010)

My parents gave met this camera in 2003. I used it primarily for taking photos of my laboratory specimens for school (yuck) but since then, it’s been used to document my adventures both here and abroad.

Meeting Neil Gaiman (!!!) at the Rockwell Tent during his first trip to the Philippines (2005)

Meeting a bayawak in Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, Palawan during my thesis field work (2006)

Visiting Clark Quay in Singapore (2006)

Heading to the mangroves in El Nido, Palawan, where I lived and worked for almost two years (2008)

Meeting a green sea turtle while snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia (2010)

My sister cliff jumping in Boracay (2010)

I finally bit the bullet and sold my camera after buying a Canon S95 this February 2011. My oldie but goodie camera went to a good home though, and will document a different family’s adventures for many more years to come.
