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, itโ€™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 familyโ€™s adventures for many more years to come.
